Return to Activity

Thank you for your patience as we work through the ups and downs of navigating this uncertain, ever-changing situation – The Saskatchewan Cheerleading Association has received approval from the Government of Saskatchewan to return to activity and training in Phase 3 of the government’s plan.  There is no obligation for clubs/teams  to return to activity. Teams and clubs housed in community facilities/schools can open based on the requirements from facility operators.

Our return to activity plan is supported by Sask Sport, as well as our insurance carriers.  The Saskatchewan Cheerleading Association sanctions and approves member clubs/teams to open operations as of June 12th, provided clubs/teams can meet the protocols and requirements of the Government of Saskatchewan and the SCA.  Clubs/Team re-opening plans must follow the protocols in the SCA Covid-19 Return to Activity document.

The SCA Covid-19 Plan will be reviewed weekly, the Plan posted here has been approved by our SCA Board of Directors, and all clubs/teams are required to adhere to the mandates with-in the plan.  It is the SCA’s recommendation that each club/team adopt and circulate the plan to their members. We hope this communication will help alleviate concerns about safety, cleanliness, distancing, etc. when parents, athletes and coaches are deciding on returning back into activity. First and foremost, our focus is on on participants’ health and safety during this pandemic.

 Effective November 27th, 2020, the public health measures that affect our sport are as follows:

Mandatory Masking Expanded
