The Provincial government as of Sept 22, 2021, has implemented requirements for patrons entering our facilities to show proof of being fully vaccinated from COVID19, some exceptions do apply. An individual is considered fully vaccinated if they have received:
• The full series of a COVID-19 vaccine authorized by Health Canada, or any combination of such vaccines, or;
• One or two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine not authorized by Health Canada, followed by one dose of a COVID-19 mRNA vaccine authorized by Health Canada, or;
• Three doses of a COVID-19 vaccine not authorized by Health Canada;•
and they received their final dose of the COVID-19 vaccine at least 14 days before providing the proof of being fully vaccinated.

In reading the regulations, the following is highlighted for facilities for recreation and sport. 

Participants under 12 years old will not require proof of vaccination.
Participants under 18 years of age are exempt and will not require proof of vaccination  if they are actively participating in indoor organized sport such as training, practices,  games and competitions.  

The exemption does not apply to youth who are spectators at sporting events. 
Proof of being fully vaccinated and proof of identification (or proof of being entitled to  another exemption) is required for participants and spectators 18 years and older  (including parents or guardians of youth actively participating in an organized sport).
Parents are exempt from providing proof of vaccination if they are entering the  premises only to drop off/pick up their child. 
Proof of vaccination (or proof of being entitled to an exemption) is not required for  workers or volunteers, including coaches and officials.
