Building entry

Entrances to buildings have been modified to control access according to City of Toronto public health. As of Tues September 7, access to the Athletic Centre for Sport and Rec participants will be through the Classic Avenue entrance and Harbord Street entrance. 

Registered program participants are asked to arrive no earlier than 15 minutes prior to the start of their program. 

Be mindful of your scheduled time in the facility. Please ensure you enter and leave the facility within your allotted time to allow our staff to sanitize between usage periods for all users. Your allotted time includes time at your programmed activity and prompt use of showers and changerooms.

Propping outside doors open to facilitate unauthorized entry jeopardizes the security of the facility and will result in suspension of membership privileges. All registered Sport & Rec program participants must check in with staff at the Classic Avenue entrance to the facility.
