SUMMER BEACH VOLLEYBALL only 4 team spots left for a May 10th start date

Hello Jacked Sports Members

Our summer beach volleyball league is almost full. We only have four team spots left for Monday night. Based on our recent lockdown we may have to move our start date back by two weeks. Captains will be contacted and team fees will be adjusted based on the number of weeks we can play.

Stay tuned and stay safe

Happy Days ! Beach Volleyball is back May 10th

This has been a long freakin winter. I bet you can’t wait to get back on the beach courts with your buddies and play some volleyball (and patio beers after of course) So register now! Wednesday night sold out already. Everyone is so pumped to get back out there. Email info@jackedsports.com to reserve your team spot. All you need to do E transfer $226.00 and the rest is due May 1st. This will give you time to get your team together and collect team fees. So don’t dilly dally …. we only have a few spots left.

All programs suspended for 28 days

I’m sure you are aware that there has been some changes due to the recent increase in COVID-19 cases in Halton.
 

Burlington, Ont.—Oct. 16, 2020— Following the recommendation of Halton Region’s Medical Officer of Health and emerging evidence indicating cases from indoor physical activity setting and contact sports are on the rise, the City of Burlington is taking action to help reduce COVID-19 transmission

Halton Region Public Health has set some new guidelines in an effort to protect the health and safety of residents
 
So here it is …

Within City of Burlington facilities, activities are now limited to training only where proper physical distancing can be maintained. There will be no games or scrimmages ☹️

The intent of this pause is to slow the spread of COVID-19 and avoid going back into a modified Stage 2 status with further precautions.

The pause will be evaluated frequently and will be lifted once Halton Region Public Health deems it safe to resume these indoor activities in City facilities. 

We will continue to share updates with you as we receive them from the City.

Let’s hope this pause brings us back to volleyball safely in 28 days.
 
Stay safe and stay healthy
 
Hope to see you back in the gym soon

Quotes

Mayor Marianne Meed Ward

“Taking this temporary pause now will allow us to come together sooner. Despite our best efforts, we’re still seeing a steady increase of COVID-19 cases in our city. While this news will be disappointing to many residents, we must keep in mind these are truly extraordinary times and they require extraordinary efforts on all of our parts, as a community, to ensure we slow down the spread of this pandemic. We will beat this, as long as we stay patient, vigilant, and continue following the advice of our medical and health professionals.”

Chris Glenn, Director of Recreation Services

“Evidence is showing that indoor fitness is a factor in the spread of COVID-19. While we make every effort to screen our participants daily, ensure physical distancing and do thorough disinfection, it is a wise decision to pause these programs and we hope by moving quickly to make this decision, we can have a positive impact against the spread of COVID-19. We are committed to ensuring our staff and participants are safe and healthy. Teams can still do skills training while maintaining proper distancing and we still have our TelePALS program and our virtual programming as well as our green spaces, parks and trails which are great for this time of year.”

Beach Volleyball Update

BEACH VOLLEYBALL UPDATE

Hope everyone is healthy and surviving social distancing.

We thought it was important to share with you how we are moving forward in preparation for our summer beach season.

Well … we are still on for now. Keeping our fingers crossed. The last communication we had from Trinity was that they will be open in June.

In preparation…

1. If health officials deem our program to be unsafe then we will cancel. Team deposits will be refunded.

2. Late start – if we start in June then we will pro rate team fees. New team fee rates will be emailed to Captains.

3. Late start – if we start in July then we will pro rate team fees and extend our season into the first couple of weeks into September.

4. New protocols will be implemented for the safety of our members and staff. Again we will be waiting for recommendations from health officials.

5. Hang in there … continue to social distance, help a neighbour, donate to our local food banks. We can all help in some way.

Hope to see you soon

All the best,

Jacquie & Selina

Winter programs cancelled

Hello Jacked Sports Volleyball Community

Wow … what a crazy time in all our lives. We hope you and your families are well.

As you are probably aware, it looks like our volleyball season has come to a halt.
The schools and community centres have just announced that the new projected opening date is now May 3rd which means we will not be able to complete our season.
The schools are not taking any further rental requests until an announcement has been made by Health officials that it is safe to open again.
We are hoping that we can rebook some gyms.
Thanks for your support and patience. Please take care of your families and follow social distancing so we may get back on the court soon.
All the best,
