COVID - 19 UPDATE - May 13, 2021
Paralympic Sports Association (PSA) update to the Government of Alberta announcement regarding team sports, outdoor recreation, and COVID-19 on May 6, 2021
The Government of Alberta announced a continuation of the suspension of all team sports and group fitness programs, with additional restrictions for indoor and outdoor group recreation. While PSA does not currently have any programming in progress, we will continue to coordinate and plan for the start of our summer programs. Please note the dates identified under each program are the planned start date, which are subject to change and/or delay should the current restrictions continue.
The full list of restrictions and updated affected areas can be found on the Government of Alberta website.
These restrictions include all of the PSA programs in Edmonton and surrounding area, and may delay expected start dates for Adapted Kayaking, Paracycling, and Golf. Keep an eye on our website and social channels for announcements regarding the opening of registration.
The safety of all participants in our programs remains paramount, as it has throughout the Return to Sport process. While we safely and confidently ran our summer programs last year we are continually updating our procedures with the most up to date restrictions, guidelines and best practices. We receive the information and guidelines at the same time as the general public, and we will continue to work with our participants and sports partners to navigate our summer programming.
It is with hope that this the current restrictions and vaccine roll-out may lead to a safer future for all of us moving forward. Thank you for your understanding and continued support of providing a safe, inclusive sport environment that all may participate in.
