The executive at St Albert Sturgeon Volleyball club are aware of the recent pandemic regarding the Corona Virus (Covid-19) and wish to take as many precautions possible to prevent the spread of all viruses and bacteria. We are monitoring and analyzing statements from local, national and international health agencies, and we would like to take some actions that comply with their directives based on fact and medical science.

There is no issue more important to us than the health and safety of your children. Health authorities tell us that, to prevent the spread of Coronavirus, we must:

Wash our hands frequently

Heighten our cleaning practices

Avoid contact with sick people

Stay away from practices and games if we are sick

Don’t travel to high infection rate area

 

Our actions as a club are as follows:

  • we will ask all coaches to remind players to wash their hands before and after practice
  • we will provide each coach with a medical grade hand sanitizer for players to use before and after each practice or game as soon as possible
  • we will ask all players, coaches and family members who are suffering flu-like symptoms to stay home and not return until they are symptom free
  • we ask any players who are travelling or have family members travelling outside of North America to please inform their coaches
  • we ask all coaches who have ANY players or players family members travelling outside of North America to please make the executive aware asap so we can consult and make the appropriate decisions in case necessary
  • we will monitor all news updates and bulletins to be aware of any heightened requirements
  • we will monitor and follow all Volleyball Alberta and Volleyball Canada advisories regarding all tournament play and Nationals
  • We are also encouraging all players to not share water bottles
  • We encourage players to bring their own food and not have food sharing plans with their teams
