February 18, 2022

As of February 9th, the Government of Alberta has removed its Restriction Exemption Program. This has not impacted our ongoing Winter season and all Winter players are still required to be fully vaccinated and follow our Vaccination Requirement Policy that was set forth and agreed upon by all registered players going into the Winter 2022 season.

For our upcoming Spring 2022 Indoor and Outdoor seasons, the CSSC will no longer be enforcing this Vaccination Requirement Policy. The Government of Alberta and Provincial Health Officials have advised that sports organizations can operate safely without a Restrictions Exemption Program in place. Therefore, we will not be asking players to submit proof of vaccinations, negative tests or medical exemptions. The CSSC still encourages those who are eligible to receive a vaccine or booster to do so, however it will no longer be a requirement to join and participate in our Leagues.

For our upcoming Winter and Spring Tournaments, we are currently working with Tournament facilities to understand their specific requirements regarding vaccination. We will follow the guidelines they have set out, and communicate those with all players.

The CSSC still values player safety and as the pandemic continues. As such, we encourage social distancing whenever possible and for players to act responsibly.

As of March 1st, the City of Calgary's mask bylaw will be removed. As such, Indoor players will have to abide by the masking policies in place at each facility. For Outdoor players, there will be no masking requirement.

Winter 2022 League FAQ

No, all players in our leagues must be fully vaccinated (with at least two doses) to be eligible to play. Unvaccinated or partially vaccinated individuals are not eligible. Privately Issued Negative PCR, Rapid Test, or Medical Exemptions will also not be accepted.

All players will be required to upload their vaccine QR code to their MyCSSC Profile. If you have submitted a registration for the Winter 2022 season or have received an invitation to join a registration, an information box will appear on your MyCSSC Profile with a link to submit your QR code through a form. In addition to all players being required to submit their vaccine QR code to their MyCSSC Profiles, the facilities may still be requiring proof of vaccination upon entry themselves.

In our leagues, any player who has not provided proof of vaccination prior to their first game will receive an automatic loss for their team. If proof is not received by the second game, the individual will be removed from the league with no opportunity for a refund or credit. For Full Team registrations, Team Captains will be responsible to ensuring all team players submit their proof of vaccination prior to their first game. If CSSC Staff (during random CSSC player vaccine checks) find players present at the game who are not able to provide proof of vaccination on site, the player will be refused entry and cannot play, they will become flagged in our system and a CSSC staff member will follow-up as necessary.

Once we are passed the cancellation deadline of December 8th for leagues, no refunds or credits will be issued. After this date, players are not eligible for monetary compensation whether it is a general withdrawal or related to COVID-19 Policies and eligibility.

We will be scheduling time slots for players to come into the office and provide their proof of vaccination in person. Please email to be sent information regarding in person vaccination proof time slots.

All player are required to complete a self-screen prior to attending every game. If you are experiencing any COVID-related symptoms, do not show up to your game. Coordinators at facilities may complete an additional screening questionnaire with players as needed, and will ask anyone with symptoms to leave immediately.

Masks are required to be worn at all times while at indoor facilities, except during game play. Masks are not required to be worn while playing.

We will follow our COVID-19 Cancellation Policy, as outlined when you registered.

Do not attend your game. We ask that you contact the CSSC office right away if you or a teammate have tested positive for COVID, or if multiple members on your team are in isolation for any reason. Players may resume play once they have met all AHS isolation guidelines of testing positive, or being a close-contact.

We will follow all AHS guidelines when we are notified of a potential exposure or confirmed case of COVID within our leagues.
