Important Update for Jr. Sundogs Teams and Atomic Participants
For all JSD Club Teams and Atomic Participants – All activity is now cancelled for the remainder of the season.
Statement on Coronavirus (COVID-19): March 24th, 2020
Sask Volleyball is committed to protecting the health and safety of our members, the public and those associated with our sport. We have been following the advice of the Government of Saskatchewan and public health experts such as the Saskatchewan Health Authority regarding COVID-19. In light of recent events, Sask Volleyball has made the decision to cancel 2020 Indoor Provincials and all remaining Indoor Club activities for the season.
The rationale to cancel activities relates to the Government of Saskatchewan’s ban on mass gatherings over 250, facility unavailability, and encouragement for members to self-isolate in hopes it will contribute to a slow-down in spreading the coronavirus. Sask Volleyball hopes to resume regular activities in time for Provincial Team and Beach seasons, and will consider the removal of the ban on mass gatherings as the impetus for this resumption.
Full refunds will be provided for Indoor Provincials, Sask Cups, tournament sanctions, ID Camps, and Workshops. Communication surrounding refunds will be shared with participants of those programs as soon as possible.
Sask Volleyball will also issue a refund all pre-orders for Indoor Provincials Official Apparel. Alternatively, there will be an announcement shortly on an opportunity to order regular Sask Volleyball Official Apparel.
Below is a summary of the status of all activity as of today:
remaining Sask Cups
Sanctioned Club Tournaments
Team Sask ID Camps
NCCP Coaching Workshops
Activity To Be Determined:
Team Sask Final Selection Camp
Team Sask Training and Competition
Team Sask – Providing the mass gatherings ban is lifted no later than May 1, Sask Volleyball will offer a Team Sask program in some form. In the event that this ban is not removed, with cooperation from Volleyball Canada and the other provinces/territories, we will communicate a revised plan as soon as possible.
Sask Summer Games – The Sask Games Council, with the city of Lloydminster will make an official announcement on May 15th. For the time being, all Sask sport bodies will continue to plan for this summer event. Please note, if you have a 2006 athlete interested in participating, open tryouts in your area will be held between May 29th and June 7th. Official dates and locations will be listed on the Sask Volleyball website on May 1st and shared with each District.
Sask Volleyball will continue to monitor all appropriate public safety advice and encourage our members to take any and all reasonable precautions.
