Covid-19 Update: Return to Sport

Friday, May 29, 2020

Today the Province announced that sport activities may resume, subject to operating within provincial guidelines.   

We strongly recommend that each provincial sport organization prepare a plan to ensure they are practising their due diligence in order to ensure a safe return for their participants.  We are working now with CCH to see that submitted plans are and continue to be reviewed, and any relevant feedback is provided, and we expect that will be done in a very timely manner.  A brief outline of the review process can be found here.  As per previous communications, if there are discrepancies between a plan and the NS Sport guidelines, the guidelines must be followed.

We would like to thank our partners at Communities Culture and Heritage for all the work they have done, and continue to do, as we move forward.  We also want to thank all of our provincial sport organization members so much for the work you’ve done to help ensure a safe return to sport.
