In preparation for a potential vaccine passport implementation in Ontario, Please be advised that the Sport & Social Club (SSC) is required to follow all Provincial Health Orders which may include the requirement for all players to be partially or fully vaccinated against COVID-19 in order to participate in SSC leagues. At this time, some facility (i.e., university/college, school boards, public, private, etc.) requirements for vaccination will impact a player’s eligibility to play. Players who do not meet these conditions should register for SSC activities at their own discretion. Refunds and credits will not be provided to teams and/or players who are not eligible to participate due to these regulations. Captains are reminded to share this information with all players ahead of registration.
