December 8 Province of Alberta COVID-19 Announcement

On December 8, the Government of Alberta announced further mandatory restrictions that apply provincewide and will be in place at least until January 12, 2021.  This includes expanding the restrictions on team sports to all areas of Alberta. The new mandatory province wide restriction is effective December 13, and the November 27 restrictions remain in effect until January 12.  Due to Alberta’s high case numbers, aggressive action is required to protect our health system from being overwhelmed. The current situation is critical, and Health officials are closely monitoring conditions and will adjust measures if required. 

During this time one-to-one indoor training with a coach is not permitted, visit the Government of Alberta’s public health measures webpage to review these stronger measures.  This new announcement will affect the start of Volleyball Alberta’s club season and tryouts.  Based on this recent notification, the start of the Tryout Period will be pushed back until Wednesday, January 13, 2021 and the start date for the VA Premier Leagues to Saturday, February 20, 2021.
