Dear Special Olympics Saskatchewan Membership,
Due to the updated public health orders as Saskatchewan enters Step 1 of the Re-Opening Roadmap on May 30th, 2021, we have made the decision to lessen the restrictions on outdoor sport programs. Outdoor sport programs will be allowed to operate as directed in the public health order. Meanwhile, indoor sport will remain physically distanced individual skills and fitness training programs as detailed in the public health order. We are pleased to make this change and along with our community leaders will strive to provide safe and meaningful sport programming once again. The next change in guidelines is expected to happen when Saskatchewan enters Step 2 of the Re-Opening Roadmap, targeted for June 20, 2021.
The next step is our community leaders will evaluate and decide on the best timeline for a return to sport programs for each community. There will be some communities and programs that will be able to return as soon as within a month or two while others may wait until the fall of 2021. Communities will return to programming at different times but rest assured your community will contact you when they have everything organized and are ready to provide programs.
Athletes get ready to get active again! We ask that you have patience and understanding with us, your community leaders, and coaches while we sort through the guidelines and organize programs. Remember, you will be contacted when a program is ready for participation.
Hope everyone has a safe and joyful return to programs,
Your friends at Special Olympics Saskatchewan
