As per the Government of Alberta announcement and guidelines, Stage 2 reopening of sport began on Friday, June 12, 2020. Stage 2 was opened a week earlier than anticipated, but provided guidelines for re-starting indoor sports that cannot maintain physical distancing protocols, including wrestling. We recognize that the required cleaning, documentation and reporting protocols are extensive, but all requirements are to ensure the safest training and easiest reporting possible and we ask all clubs looking to begin training under Phase 2 adhere to all conditions included in the documents below.
DISCLAIMER: There is still a risk of COVID-19 transmission. Participation in any wrestling-related activities is completely optional. AAWA insurance has excluded COVID-19 from our coverage so all training is at the risk of the individual participant and/or their parents or legal guardians. Any participant that has close contact with individuals at a high risk of infection must know the risks involved and may choose to not participate at this current time.
If your program cannot adhere to the current stage 2 guidelines, do NOT start your program. Any deviation from the guidelines may result in suspension of the program or any individuals deemed to be ignoring said guidelines.
These guidelines may change at any time for any reason including, but not limited to, the recommendations and/or mandates of the Alberta Amateur Wrestling Association, Government of Alberta and Alberta Health Services. Any changes will be communicated as soon as possible to all members. There remains the possibility that an increase in COVID-19 cases may result in the immediate suspension of all training activities at any time.
Testing in Alberta is free and available for all who wish to be tested. Testing Information can be found at the following link: https://www.alberta.ca/covid-19-testing-in-alberta.aspx
