COVID-19 has changed the world. See how Muskoka Elite plans move forward.
FOUR-PHASE PLAN TO RETURN TO CHEER
Below is a tentative framework for return-to-play at Muskoka Elite. Details of each phase are based lengthy consultations with industry professionals, stakeholders, and authorities from around the world and are modelled after approaches seen in other countries where return-to-play has already begun.
Phase 1, May & June
Online Tryouts. Submit a tryout video online and be assigned to a team with kids of a similar age and ability. Everyone is selected to a team! No one is excluded! Deadline to submit is June 8, 2020.
Phase 2, July & August
No-Contact Outdoor Training. As government regulations permit and based on recommendations of relevant health authorities, teams will move virtual training outdoors with physical distancing protocols in place. Teams will train individual elements such as flexibility, jumps, conditioning, tumbling skills, dance and team bonding activities.
No-Contact Indoor Training. As government regulations permit, teams will move no-contact training indoors.
Phase 3, Fall 2020
Low-Contact Indoor Training. Following the recommendations of the Ontario Cheer Federation, Cheer Canada, and the relevant health authorities, Muskoka Elite will begin low-contact training (limited stunting) in the fall when it is safe to do so.
Regular Training. Muskoka Elite will return to regular training when advised to do so by the relevant authorities, including Cheer Canada, the Ontario Cheerleading Federation, and the Ontario Ministry of Health. Note, full contact sports may not be permitted in Canada until the late fall 2020 or winter 2021.
Phase 4, Winter 2021
Competitions. COVID-19 has destabilized the Canadian cheerleading landscape and event producers are challenged to plan competitions at this time. Muskoka Elite will take a very flexible approach to competitions next winter, selecting 2 or 3 competitions to attend depending on health protocols, availability of events, and the status of competitive cheer in Canada.
