RE: COVID-19 Coronavirius   

This is the update from the March 14 Membership Information release, ALA is monitoring the COVID-19  virus status and recommendations from the Government of Canada and Government of Alberta. 

Due to  the restrictions on facilities in various Local Governing Bodies, the ALA is continually reviewing what the  2020 Box Season will look like.    

This does NOT mean there will be no box lacrosse in 2020.

In  addition, there have been no decisions on Alberta Summer Games or CLA National Events at this time.   In addition, ALA is optimistic this situation will be alleviated and the regular Field Lacrosse Season will be  able to continue.  Information on field lacrosse can be found here http://albertafieldlacrosse.net/    At this time, all “in person” events are still suspended until further notice.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING OUR 2020 SEASON

 

Good morning Titans Families,

We wanted to take a moment to clarify our course of action regarding the COVID-19 virus.

The Sherwood Park Titans are following the recommendations of the GELC and ALA.

As a result, we have made the decision that we will suspend our upcoming activities until we are able to determine what course of action to take.

As a result of this, we are postponing evaluations until we have additional information.

For those of you who are on Titan A teams, we have also made the  decision to postpone all floor times into the foreseeable future.

Again, more communication will come out as soon as a course of action is made. 

At this time,  lacrosse season is not cancelled - we are continuing to monitor closely with the GELC and will continue to update our members accordingly.

Please feel free to contact either myself at president@sherwoodparktitans.ca  or registrar@sherwoodparktitans.ca with any questions or concerns.

Thank you,

KAREN WELLNER

President

Female Director
Sherwood Park Titans
