SOUTHDALE COMMUNITY CENTRE - Soft Reopening June 1, 2020.
May 28, 2020 - Update to the Community re: Southdale CC COVID Reopening Plan
In light of the release of Manitoba's Restoring Safe Services Phase 2, Southdale CC is implementing a cautious reopening plan for June 1, 2020. As we establish new protocols and procedures, safety of our participants and staff is of utmost importance. During Phase 2, ice rentals are not open to non-monitored user groups with no staff. Southdale is partnering with Laker Hockey Academy to operate on reduced hours with an efficient scheduling system that will be consistent and maintain provincial regulations. There are no spectators allowed. Anyone needing to attend the centre must arrange with management in advance. As we approach Phase 3 and the potential relaxation of restrictions, we will have a chance to evaluate the facility operation, possibly expanding hours and user group access for ice rentals and other programming. Absolutely no scrimmages or battle drills will be allowed until the government loosens the social distancing requirements.

Basketball - Spring 2020 Season CANCELLED as of April 14, 2020. Full information and refund details on their website
If a season is cancelled, registration fees will be refunded in the same form of payment. If a season is deemed salvageable, we are aware that there will be some registrants that choose to withdraw regardless.
Refunds for all sports, be it voluntary or due to season cancellation, will be processed through the same third party registration system. Due to the logistics of getting the funds to that company prior to being able to credit your account, there will be a 2-3 week delay from the time of season announcement and be processed only as a whole, not individual requests. Amended COVID-19 Refund Policy is listed in comments and on the main page of our website.
Southdale Spring 2020 COVID-19 Refund Information:
With the unprecedented circumstance we face as a community, the SRA Board of Directors has waived the majority of the Registration/Refund Policy as outlined in the SRA Policy Manual. Part of this policy states that the Laker Fee (charged to cover admin costs) is non-refundable. It was a very difficult decision to look at the best interest of our community in a situation well out of their control while balancing the financial demands of the online registration system utilized. As a non-profit organization struggling in this time like many others, the Board has decided to refund any portion of each registrant's Laker Fee over $10. While the $10 per registrant will not cover the full amount of registration system admin fees to the centre, it will assist to offset the cost with the goal of not having to increase future sport registration fees for costs related to this pandemic.
Manitoba Soccer Association Update (May 21, 2020)
Included in the Manitoba government Phase 2 Draft is the resumption of Team Sports. While this is a positive step in the direction of being able to play soccer this summer, it is important to note that the government has not set a timeline or start date for Phase 2. MSA is currently going through the planning of the 'Return to Play' Protocols that must be reviewed and approved by various governing bodies and provincial health authorities before they can be implemented in Manitoba.
The protocols will include multiple phases, timelines, recommendations and guidelines for anyone participating in sanctioned soccer. MSA would like to stress that we will not be able to jump right back into the game as normal to ensure the highest level of safety for everyone involved in the game.
At this time, all in-person sanctioned events and activities are postponed until at least June 7, 2020. The assessment of operations and postponements will be decided on a week-to-week basis.
