MEMO TO: SLA MEMBER ASSOCIATIONS
MEMO FROM: SLA BOARD OF DIRECTORS
RE: COVID-19 UPDATE
Please see below for a statement from the Saskatchewan Lacrosse Association President with an update surrounding the COVID-19 virus. This statement does not mean the 2020 season is cancelled at this time.
The Saskatchewan Lacrosse Association is following the lead of other Provincial and National Sport Organizations and effective March 14th, 2020, has postpone all SLA sanctioned activities (games, practices, programs, camps, clinics and try outs) in the immediate future due to the recent updates, advisories, and concerns over COVID-19. This decision was difficult; however, the health, safety, and protection of our entire Lacrosse family is top priority.
The Saskatchewan Lacrosse Association is grateful for the amount of work all our volunteers have put forth to prepare for events in the upcoming weeks and the start of the 2020 season, however, the SLA Board of Directors feels it is time to take necessary precautions to keep our community and families safe. At this time, a timeline cannot be provided on activities resuming, but the SLA Board of Directors and Staff will remain diligent in communicating any developments as they occur.
If there are any questions or concerns please contact Bridget Pottle, SLA Executive Director at 306.780.9216 ext. 1 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Yours in Lacrosse,
Javan Bexson | President
Saskatchewan Lacrosse Association
