Reflecting on the past and looking ahead!

August 28, 2020

Dear Rady JCC Friends,

In the coming days we will be flipping our calendars to September which means the unofficial end to Summer and the beginning of a new season.

In September there will be some new and exciting changes happening at the Rady. First off, our NEW hours of operation will take effect. Starting Tuesday, September 8th our hours will be expanded to the following:

  • Mondays – Thursdays, 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.
  • Fridays 6:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
  • Saturdays – Sundays, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

A reminder that the Rady will be open on Labour Day (Monday, September 7) from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

We are also pleased to announce that starting Tuesday, September 8, the total number of Group Fitness classes will expand from 25 to 32. Online registration is still required. Be sure to check out the NEW schedules in the coming days at

And if the addition of MORE Group Fitness classes wasn’t enough, starting in September we will also be adding some Small Group Training, Kids Sports and Rec programs.(See schedules HERE).

Unfortunately, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic remains prevalent and therefore it is important to remember to practice safe distancing in all areas of the Rady. If you notice any groups of members congregating in a general area, please notify any member of the Fitness Staff at the second-floor track desk.

For those lap swimmers looking for extra time, some good news for you. The week of August 31 to September 4, lap swimming will be available starting at 7:15 a.m. until 7:15 p.m., with a break in between for cleaning. Reminder that all 45-minute slots must be booked online.

As you may be aware, this past week we launched the third of multiple envelope auctions to make up some of the lost dollars that would have been raised at our 48th Annual Rady JCC Ken Kronson Sports Dinner. A big THANK YOU to those who purchased envelopes and a reminder that the next envelope auction will begin this Friday at 9:00 a.m. There are TWO items up for grabs:

1) Autographed Magic Johnson jersey
2) Autographed Teemu Selanne Anaheim Ducks jersey.

As we look back on the “Summer of 2020” we are very thankful to each and every one of our members who came to the Rady and  joined us for a Group Fitness class, a session in our lap pool or just enjoyed a workout in our Fitness Centre. We are very grateful for all of you, thank you for your commitment to the Rady JCC.

Bring on September.


Warm regards,

Rob Berkowits
