Return to Lacrosse Update
The Sask Lacrosse Return to Lacrosse Plan has been updated to reflect all the current Sport and Recreation guidelines in place. Please note the Provincial Government guidelines will always overrule this plan. Changes to the plan are highlighted in yellow, but below is some general updates.
- Since the Provincial Government does not recommend travel for anything not deemed essential, any athlete that needs to travel outside of their home community to take part in a Lacrosse activity will need to fill out the SLA COVID-19 Travel Waiver form. Athletes will not be permitted to take part in activities with out this form being filled out. Athletes can contact the program they are taking part in for a copy of this form.
- There have been a couple questions sent in whether players can take part in their more than one camp/clinic in their community (ex. Attending an all-female camp and attending a coed camp). Since Mini Leagues opened up we have been monitor athletes staying in one specific group, however upon review of the updated guidelines (which are not updated in writing on the Provincial Government website), the requirement to only be a part of one group was part of the mini league guidelines which is how contact was permitted, contact is no longer permitted, neither is gameplay or mini leagues, which means there are no longer any specific guidelines around single groups (other than ones sharing a floor surface). While we do not recommend athlete attend numerous camps, with no specific guidelines stating athletes can not be in two different camps, the SLA can only recommend parents use good discretion until the guidelines state something different. Parents of athletes traveling from a different community should be especially cognitive of the additional risk of attending camps in different locations.
A friendly reminder that the current guidelines prohibit any kind of contact and that players must social distance at all times during their activities, this includes coming into facilities, during drills, waiting in line for drills, water breaks etc. At no time should a player break social distancing measures. Masks must also be worn at all times, including during activity.
More updates to the Return to Lacrosse plan are being made and it will look different this summer, once there is a bit ore directive from the Provincial Government on what to expect past the current restrictions that will be released as well. We thank everyone for their patience during this time as we try to offer Lacrosse programs in a safe and methodically manner.
