  • There is limited access to change rooms and showers. Lockers and cubbies are not in use. Please change at home.
  • If you’re unable to participate in the activity without use of the accessible change room, please call ahead to the facility and let us know after you’ve reserved your program. This enables us to ensure the space is available and cleaned after use.
