AASA COVID-19 Update – December 8, 2020

Dear: AASA Members

RE: Training with the New Restrictions Dec 13, 2020

With the new AHS Covid-19 restrictions, which are sweeping and provincial wide. I have gone through the information and under the Sports and Physical Activities portion of the new measures and it states:

Mandatory restriction – Province-wide – Effective Dec. 13 (Nov. 27 restrictions remain in effect until Dec. 13)

Group physical activities, including team sports, fitness classes and training sessions, are prohibited or restricted across Alberta.

  • Outdoor group physical activity, including team sports, must be limited to 10 people or fewer.
  • Members of different households must maintain 2 metre distancing at all times

This does still allow for training in groups of 10 or less. But I urge all clubs to travel as little as possible, if you have training options at your home hill please stay there. If your club needs to train outside of their home hill because your home hill does not offer training, make sure you do it safely. Please travel as little as possible. Ski hills will have restrictions on their operations like restaurants etc., so you need to plan accordingly and follow all ski hill pandemic protocols.

Best regards,
