October 23 - Member Update

Oct. 23, 2020

October 23, 2020
To: All SSA Member Organizations
Saskatchewan Soccer and member organizations continue to adhere to all Government of Saskatchewan Public Health Orders regarding the COVID 19 pandemic. 
The Business Response Team (BRT), working with Sask Health, has confirmed that participation in more than one mini league is currently not prohibited by the Sports and Activities Guidelines. Participants should, however, restrict themselves to as few activities as possible.
Participating in activities within sanctioned sports organizations, which follow rigorous safety protocols, is preferred to joining unsanctioned sports that are not adhering to provincial guidelines. Ultimately, participants can increase their safety by choosing fewer activities and ensuring all groups they are involved with meet provincial government standards. Member Organizations must ensure contact tracing is available, and should a COVID transmission occur, the more groups that individuals are involved with increases the risk for sport in general. We must all continue to do our part to remain diligent in the enforcement of all guidelines. 
Furthermore, with the indoor season beginning or already in progress, we want to remind Member Organizations that you must consult your facility operator regarding facility guidelines. As each facility is unique, we are unable to provide guidance to Member Organizations regarding facility capacity or facility specific guidelines. If your member organization is a facility operator, you are responsible to ensure your facility is operating in compliance with government guidelines.
SSA’s role is to communicate the government guidelines through our plan to support our member organizations to make informed choices. Ultimately, the Member Organization is responsible to interpret the government’s guidelines and make decisions on how play will occur locally.

As a reminder, please continue to take care of yourself, your families, and others. 
Wash your hands frequently (it is the single most effective way of reducing infection spread).
Practice other good hygiene habits: do not touch your face/eyes/mouth with your hands and cover your mouth and nose when you sneeze or cough (ideally with a disposable tissue or the crease of your elbow).
Clean and disinfect frequently touched workspace surfaces.
Maintain good general health (eat a balanced diet, get enough sleep, and move in moderation).
Stay home if you are sick
Our sport is underway during the pandemic. It's a challenging time, but support from our partners allows us to offer opportunities for kids to play. We acknowledge the financial support of the Government of Canada. Nous reconnaissons l'appui financier du gouvernement du Canada.
