Staff training at the Canada Games Centre will mean an early closure for the recreation complex on Aug. 30.
The City of Whitehorse said in a statement the Games Centre will close at 3 p.m. rather than its usual 10 p.m. closure to provide staff training in emergency procedures and customer service. The early closure will enable staff to train together as a team.
“Allowing for training opportunities ensures staff can safely and effectively deliver the valuable recreation services, and programs that our community expects,” the city noted.
Regular summer hours — 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. — will resume Aug. 31.
In its statement, the city issued a reminder that the Whitehorse Lions Aquatic Centre at the CGC is closed for maintenance and will reopen Sept. 6.
The CGC’s fall operating hours will also begin Sept. 6 with the centre to then be open from 5:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. through the week and 7 a.m. until 10 p.m. on weekends. The CGC is typically closed on holidays.
