Dear Impact Community,
The club is actively working to secure gym time for both our competitive and Junior Gaels leagues. As part of that process, we are reaching out to both Queen’s and SLC. Both institutions just announced that all faculty, staff, students, and visitors will be required to be fully vaccinated to visit campus this fall.
For our athletes 12 years and above we understand this to mean that all eligible participants must be fully vaccinated prior to any events hosted at these venues, including our tryouts.
In the past, to accommodate the sheer number of athletes we have used Queen’s for tryouts and have run programming at SLC due to a lack of gym availability in schools.
Furthermore, to work within capacity limits there could be restrictions on spectators at large events like tryouts. In any event, when spectators are permitted we understand they will need to be fully vaccinated. There is still time to get your vaccines prior to the fall to ensure your child has the opportunity to attend these events.
For our athletes under 12 years old, we don’t know what the implications will be for the fall. We will continue to monitor the situation and adapt. We will do everything we can to ensure that these athletes are able to participate in our programming.
As we get more information, we will forward it to our membership.
