    Although the outbreak of the Coronavirus on international scale has prompted the Australian Government to implement a Coronavirus Emergency Response Plan, we have been in contact with a representative of our state health department who indicated our club activities would be considered low risk, and we should continue business as usual.

    Our priority is to ensure our students train in a safe, healthy and positive environment. We will keep you informed of any changes if they occur. Please contact the centre if you have any queries.

    Yours sincerely,

    Jamie, David and the MTC Team
