The number of COVID cases continues to be high in most parts of the world. In addition, there are new variants of COVID that spread more easily and may cause more serious illness. Furthermore, Athletics Canada only has emerging data on the long-term impact of COVID in elite athletes.
Due to the new COVID-19 restrictions put in place by the Government of Saskatchewan on Friday, November 27, 2020, Saskatchewan Athletics cannot sanction any practice for athletes over the age of 18 if a coach is present. If athletes want to train elsewhere with a fit card they can as long as a coach is not present.
