Update - June 17, 2020
Alberta Soccer Association has submitted their Return to Play - Phase 2 Return to Modified Games document to Government of Alberta, AHS and their insurer for final approval.  This means that tentatively we can all move into Phase 2 - Return to Modified Games on June 19th (still awaiting approval and not confirmed).  Referees will not be part of Phase 2 and the cohorts of 50 until at least June 26th.  Therefore, training and scrimmages can proceed if approval is granted by insurer and AHS tentatively on June 19th.  All clubs must have the phase 2 safety guidelines and a low risk assessment from CSA in place before approval from EIYSA is granted for implementation of phase 2.

Updates - June 9th, 2020
