Recreation, leisure and individual training activities
With the reopening of parks and both municipal and private recreation facilities in our communities, casual or leisure activities have also begun to resume. These activities should not be organized or operated by a PSO, LSO or DSO. Participation in these activities is at the discretion of the individual and should adhere to current public health recommendations. Individuals are encouraged to go outdoors for personal exercise and to remain active in their communities during this time. Casual or leisure activities include but are not limited to: skill development, leisure sport and individual training. Please consult your local or municipal authorities, or the facility itself, for their specific COVID-19 guidelines to help you decide if you will partake in these activities.
We know individuals are eager to resume physical activity and parents are eager to see their children active and participating in sport and recreation again. At this time, the safety of our children, our fellow citizens and communities is of the utmost importance. Adhere to public health recommendations when you begin to reintroduce this into your lives as recreation, leisure and individual training activities only at this time. As a reminder these activities should not be organized or operated by a PSO, LSO or DSO.
