Squash Ontario AGM

Wednesday August 19, Louis Cyr, attended via Zoom the Squash Ontario AGM.

Link here: https://www.squashontario.com/annual-general-meeting

Louis has summarized the key points:

  • Provincially, current protocol is no playing as 2m rule can not be enforced
  • Pools (or pods) of 6 max for drilling ok, but no playing
  • COVID-19 protocols and health measures to be always adopted
  • Squash Ontario is appealing the current protocol, asking for pods of 10 and playing to resume
  • It is anticipated that clubs will be able to function normally by end Oct
  • Tournaments will likely resume in Jan 2020
  • Critical to get leagues started as soon as feasible
  • Club membership: 88 member clubs, about 7K players across the province; membership credit will be given to clubs
  • Excellent legal bfg on impact of COVID-19 with sports, and squash in particular
    • Use of waiver is paramount
    • Incorporation of club is so important now, otherwise club executive/directors/members could be personally held liable with anything related to COVID-19
  • Insurance: another great bfg
    • Pod participation list with names, dates and timings
    • Trying to get COVID-19 coverage in the insurance policy, but likely an additional cost for this
    • Clubs and/or leagues should make sure coaches/instructors, etc. have proper insurance coverage.  Squash Ontario will verify if their own blanket coverage takes care of this.

Covid-19 Update

For now, all league activities are suspended. All local courts appear to be closed!

The goal is to finish the league schedule and complete the championship weekend.

As there is no real precedent for a Pandemic, we will play it by ear. Major updates will be posted on the Facebook feed first, here second.

The KSA Committee is also mulling various ideas and emails will be sent out to captains as necessary.

In the meantime, self-isolate, lets get this thing out of here so we can carry on!
