Thunder Creek Volleyballers
It is unfortunate with how our season or lack of it is going so far. It’s important during this time to keep our heads up and hope for the best in the New Year! To support and check in with everyone to make sure all is Ok! Know that we are here for you if you ever need someone to talk to!
Looking to next year we hope to offer as much volleyball as possible from Jan to May, and then hopefully we are back to some kind of normal in the new school year.
Stay tuned to the web page on plans for after Christmas, obviously COVID and facility availability will have a big impact on what we can offer!
Below is information that SVA has passed on to us regarding competition for next year.
Currently, Sask Volleyball is not permitted to host Mini-League Sask Cups. As numbers in the province continue to be high, and travel is not recommended, Sask Volleyball will be adjusting its Mini-League schedule. Below is a draft of approximate dates. Further communication regarding deadlines, dates, locations, etc will be forthcoming…
Mini-League #1 – January through early February (no Sask Cup competition at the end of this season. Exhibition matches between teams within each Mini-League only)
Mini-League #2 – early February through mid March (Exhibition matches + Sask Cup competition of 4-5 teams per Mini-League)
Mini-League #3 – mid March through late April (Exhibition matches + Sask Cup competition of 4-5 teams per Mini-League)
Additionally, Volleyball Canada and its partner Provincial Associations recently begun discussion on the possibility of extending its indoor club season. Volleyball Canada would consider pushing back its national championships into the summer, if there was a possibility that the COVID-19 pandemic was under control by then and wide-spread travel and large gatherings were safe. Sask Volleyball will keep this possibility under consideration, with the potential to organize additional Mini-League seasons.
Below is some info regarding mask wearing research conducted by the University of Saskatchewan, FYI…
Also FYI, as the cases of COVID-19 increase across the province and in our school communities, we know there can be delays in receiving test results. We wanted to share with you that The Saskatchewan Health Authority has made access to your electronic health records available. We would encourage you to sign up for MySaskHealthRecord as it provides you with much quicker access to your COVID-19 test results than waiting for the phone call results.
