Posted on 09/29/2020
Facility Protocol:


If you are not feeling well, have the flu, a cold, fever or showing signs of COVID-19 you will not be allowed to participate in any activities booked within the facility.  We ask that you stay home until you are showing no signs (symptom free).


Mask Wearing:

    • All users and participants will be required to wear a mask at all times in common spaces (including hallways, washrooms, classrooms, meeting rooms, lounge areas).
    • All coaches, assistant coaches and trainers will be required to wear a mask at all times while coaching.
    • All participants will be required to wear a mask when:
      • Receiving instruction
      • Taking a rest break
      • Not actively participating in cardio activity.



Any participant who doesn’t follow the protocol of mask wearing will be asked to leave, as per City of Edmonton by-law 19408. https://www.edmonton.ca/programs_services/emergency_preparedness/covid-19.aspx


Physical Distancing :

    • All users and participants will be required to physical distance at all times in common spaces (including hallways, washrooms, classrooms, meeting rooms, lounge areas).
    • All coaches, assistant coaches and trainers will be required to physical distance at all times while providing coaching except where close proximity for instruction in absolutely necessary.
    • All participants will be required to physical distance from the coaches, trainers and fellow participants when:
      • Receiving instruction
      • Taking a rest break
      • Not actively participating in the space’s designated activity or play area.


Change rooms will not be available at the Saville Centre. All participants are asked to arrive dressed in their gym clothes required for their activity.


Arrive at the facility no earlier than 15 minutes prior to your booked gym time.  Please do not enter the facility more than 10 minutes before your booking and go directly to your activity space.


After your gym booking time is finished, you will have 10 minutes to leave the activity space & facility. No showers allowed.


Please follow directional signage as posted within the facility.  Traffic patterns are designed to aid with social distancing when patrons are in common areas and to help avoid congestion.


General public spectators are not allowed. Spectators may be allowed for certain pre-approved groups but this must be arranged in advance so that the facility can plan for the appropriate cleaning protocols after each booking (with & without spectators).  In this case, spectators will only be allowed in certain areas and must follow the directions as provided for spectator traffic flow.  


For participant drop off (young participants who need to be escorted into the facility). Only one parent or guardian is allowed to enter the facility to drop off a young participant for their program.


Water Fountains – only the water bottle filling station will be available for use, therefore participants are required to bring their personal water bottle.


Please ensure that your group uses ONLY the court assigned to them. You are putting your group and potentially the next group at risk if you use the wrong court / gym. Requests to move gyms/courts will not be accommodated.

Each booking group is to bring all of their own equipment.  The following items will be provided for your booking

Basketball: basketball hoops. 5’ plastic table & 2 chairs for score keeping

Volleyball: volleyball net for each court booked  (however groups may be required to adjust their own net heights, upon arrival) 

Badminton: badminton nets (6 per gym).

**additional equipment will only be provided on a case by case basis and may include extra charges due to cleaning requirements.

 

We appreciate that these rules are new to us all and we all need to do our part to be safe and follow these COVID-19 guidelines for return to play.   If these rules are not followed, the potential risk of another full facility closure could occur.  Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
