Open for Summer 2021 guidelines

It took many months but I think we have made our way back to something that resembles “normal”. Please see below for how Mountain Shadows will be moving forward in Alberta’s Stage 3 plan.

For our athletes
*Masks are optional
*Sanitizing upon entry and exit is encouraged
*Physical distancing is still encouraged
*Change rooms are open, try to limit “lingering”
*Try to limit gathering at the entry way

For our coaches
*Masks are optional
*Physical distancing is still encouraged
*Spotting is allowed, but coaches should sanitize between athletes

For our parents
*Masks are optional
*Physical distancing is strongly encouraged
*Sanitizing upon entry and exit is encouraged
*Try to limit gathering at the entry way
*Parent viewing is open

As in the past, we are still asking that if your child is unwell, that they don’t attend class. We still have everyone’s health and well being at the forefront, so all cleaning protocols will continue to be strictly adhered to.

We look forward to seeing everyone’s faces once again!

Sincerely, 
MSGC Management and Staff
