AASA COVID-19 Update – November 27, 2020

Dear: AASA Members

Re: COVID-19 Protocols for Return to Training for Clubs

AASA has received some clarity on training for our clubs from the Government of Alberta. As we continue to work through this difficult time, I want to thank all the clubs for their patience and their drive to have a safe sport for our athletes, coaches, families and the community.

Clubs may return to training in cohorts.

  •  These cohorts must be no more than 10 people in size.
  • Train in your cohorts at your home hill/resort.
  • Follow all COVID-19 protocols set out by AHS.
  • Follow all COVID-19 protocols set out by your Home Hill/Resort.
  • Follow all COVID-19 Club protocols.
  • Training only

Athletes/coaches from municipalities identified as enhanced measure communities (purple regions) may continue to play/participate in sport cohorts in a municipalities not listed as an enhanced measure communities (open region) if they were part of a pre-existing sport cohort not listed in the Order prior to November 27, 2020.

It is of the utmost importance that we all follow the COVID-19 protocols laid out by AHS, Clubs and home Ski Hills/Resorts. It is up to all of us to help bend the curve, this is a fluid situation and can change at any time.

Please be safe.

Best regards,

Patrick Gillespie
