Volleyball Yukon will require the following as of Nov. 13, 2021:
Proof of Vaccination - Anyone over the age of 12 will be required to show proof of vaccination and government issued ID upon entry to a Volleyball Yukon event or program. This is done once for our athletes at the beginning of the session.
Masking - We require our athletes to be masked at all times during their program. Coaches have been advised to adjust their lesson plans to account for the added challenge of wearing a mask. Masks do not need to be worn on the court during play, but will be required on the bench and arriving to and leaving the court.
We're working hard to keep our volleyball community safe and healthy. Before registering for a program or event:
Please read the full Return to Play guidelines and ensure you're comfortable complying with them. By registering, you agree to follow our club rules and guidelines.
Members are responsible for being up-to-date with guideline changes, checking e-mails, and reading the website to ensure their informed. No refunds will be provided if you choose not to inform yourself.
Yukon Chief Medical Officer of Health, Brendan Hanley, and Premier Sandy Silver announced that as of September 9th, Yukon is still in PHASE 3 and have extended our State of Emergency . Like you, we are keen to resume volleyball as quickly as possible. However, we cannot jeopardize the safety of participants or the progress that has been made to flatten the COVID-19 curve in the Yukon. We must return to playing volleyball in a phased and responsible manner.
The government has asked each sport to develop its own Return to Play Plan for this phase that meets health authority guidelines. Volleyball Yukon has developed this plan for volleyball in collaboration with Volleyball Canada and the Yukon Medical Officer and staff. Our plan is available below and we are now in PHASE FOUR. It is imperative that affiliates follow the Volleyball Canada Safe Return to Volleyball document, the Volleyball Yukon RTP Plan, the Yukon Government Contact Sports Guidelines and the Yukon Department of Education K-12 School Settings Guidelines (all documents are available below).
While sports still don’t have certainty, we have been advised of the following principles:
We must adhere to all public health restrictions set by government and health authorities (eg. maximum group gatherings, facility access).
Participant safety is paramount. Participants who have symptoms of a cold, flu or COVID-19, who are higher risk, or who have underlying health conditions should not participate.
All activity should limit group size to that set out by health authorities.
Physical distancing of 2 metres must be maintained between all participants.
Outside activity is preferred over indoor activity.
