On Thursday, May 20, the provincial government unveiled the Roadmap to Reopening the province. The roadmap is a 3-Step plan that is based on the vaccination rate. As the first and second dose vaccination rates in Ontario increase, more businesses and community activities will be allowed to reopen/restart.

Per the Roadmap to Re-Opening...
The province will remain in each step for at least 21 days. If at the end of the 21 days, the following vaccination thresholds have been met, along with positive trends in other key public health and health system indicators, then the province will move to the next step:
Step 1: 60% of adults vaccinated with one dose (estimated to begin during the week of June 14)
Step 2: 70% of adults vaccinated with one dose and 20% vaccinated with two doses (could begin 21 days after June 14 = week of July 5)
Step 3: 70-80% of adults vaccinated with one dose and 25% vaccinated with two doses (could begin 21 days after July 5 = week of July 26)

Between now and the beginning of Step 1 only outdoor groups of 5 or less are permitted. Because almost all of FCSSC's leagues and activities require more than 5 participants to run, we will use this time to allow for continued registration for our Summer programs.

The new registration deadline for activities that will be permitted to run during Step 1 of the province's reopening plan is now June 9! Team sport play (games) are not permitted in Step 1, however, training, practice and physically-distanced group activities are. FCSSC's Step 1 activities include, but are not limited to (all outdoors, all with <10 people):

  • Yoga
  • Bootcamp
  • Hiking / Trail Walking
  • Golf Lessons
  • Tennis Lessons
  • Run Club
  • Badminton
  • Crossnet
  • Bocce
  • Lawn Games
  • Skills & Drills in Beach Volleyball, Soccer, Football, Ultimate & more!

Registration remains open online, with no deadline, for leagues and activities that are permitted in Step 2. Step 2 is when team sport game play is allowed to resume. The sooner we meet the required vaccination rates across the province the sooner Step 2 will begin. Sign up today to secure your spot. FCSSC's Step 2 Summer sport leagues will include, but are not limited to (all outdoors, all with <25 people):

  • Beach Volleyball
  • Softball
  • Soccer
  • Flag Football
  • Beach Dodgeball
  • Pickleball
  • Lawn Bowling

Here's what else you need to know...

  • Registration for both Step 1 and Step 2 activities is open online. www.fcssc.ca/register. Dates and fees have been updated for all Step 1 programs/activities. The registration deadline has been extended again until June 9. Sign up soon so that we can get to playing as quickly as possible once permitted!
  • The FCSSC team is back at it and working hard with facility providers to assess the possibility of extending our team sport leagues into the Fall (start later, end later approach). We will not be processing any credits or refunds while we work through this assessment. We appreciate your understanding and we promise that we will be in touch with options as soon as we have more information.

For now, please follow all public health rules to stop the spread of the virus. And please #GETVAXXED. The return of team sports depends on it.
