Changes to Red - Control ... 10 Participants and Parents permitted

The cities and townships of Waterloo Region, along with the OWHA, have continued to work with local public health officials and the Province to clarify and interpret the provincial limits for recreation and sport in the Red-Control category of the provincial response framework.

As of today, the Province has provided updated guidance on the limits for recreation facilities and community centres.  Across Waterloo Region, the following will now apply effective immediately:

  • Indoor capacity of 10 program participants (registered athletes) per room/space, provided physical distancing can be maintained.
  • Additional coaching and training staff are permitted, limited strictly to those officially rostered with the team/athletes as identified in their provincial association’s return to play protocols, provided physical distancing can be maintained.  For Woolwich, this means two rostered coaches and one rostered trainer.
  • One parent/guardian per minor aged participant is permitted. Masks for guardians are mandatory, and physical distancing must be maintained.
  • Parents may use the stands in St. Jacobs, seating area in Snyder and South end/upper viewing in McLeod.
  • No siblings will be allowed entrance into the facility.
  • No dressing room usage.
  • No scrimmages or games permitted.
  • Only skills and drills training is permitted.

This change is effective immediately.  Your coaches will be reaching out to you to let you know which practices your daughter will be attending based on your schedule and the new limits.

Here is today's media release from the Region of Waterloo explaining these Red-Control category changes for recreation in Waterloo Region.

Please let us know if you have any questions.
