Impact of COVID-19 on lacrosse activities
The Saanich Lacrosse Executive is committed to ensuring our members are informed on the current impact of COVID-19 on lacrosse activities.
As of March 11th, the governing bodies for Lacrosse in and British Columbia and Canada have not issued any directives or set any limitations on lacrosse activities (See the attached document for the March 11 Communication from the BC Lacrosse Association).
As of March 12th, the currently scheduled practices for Midget, Bantam and Pee Wee are going ahead.
Mini-Tyke, Tyke, and Novice divisions will begin practicing after Spring break as is consistent with past seasons.
All players, coaches and lacrosse personnel are reminded and encouraged to practice preventative measures as recommended by BC Centre for Disease Control:
- Wash your hands frequently (it is the single most effective way of reducing infection spread).
- Practice other good hygiene habits: do not touch your face/eyes/mouth with your hands and cover your mouth and nose when you sneeze or cough (ideally with a disposable tissue or the crease of your elbow).
- Clean your personal items. In the case of lacrosse ensure your water bottle is cleaned regularly and do not share with other players
- Maintain good general health (eat a balanced diet, get enough sleep, exercise in moderation).
- Stay home if you are sick.
- Contact 8-1-1 (HealthLink BC) or your health care provider for questions about your personal health situation.
The Saanich Lacrosse Executive will send out any further communication from Canadian Lacrosse Association and the BC Lacrosse Association as they are received.
