There are no practices on statutory holidays as the Athletic Centre is closed. There will be a few more cancellations and changes throughout the term which will be announced through this listserv and on our web site. The same holds true for cancellations and changes due to unforeseen circumstances. Should a practice have to be cancelled on a short notice we will do our best to get an announcement out in time.
