Note: as of Nov 20th, 2020 this policy is superseded by Tier 3 Resurgence Mitigation Guidelines, SAA is waiting for the Phase 4 protocol and guidelines set by the state of IL to be reinstated in Q1 of 2021, however with this ever-changing situation new guidelines may be put into place by IL government, and at that time the SAA Executive Board will have to update the SAA "Return to Play" policy, please bear with us as we react as quickly as possible to any changes.
SAA Operation Details during this trying time
As of November 20th, 2020 the State of IL provided new Tier 3 Resurgence Mitigation protocol pertaining to operation of certain types of entities during this time. Youth sports was one of the types of entities that was effected greatly by this change. Our indoor sports programs were paused, and the SAA Executive Board sent out a note to the entirety of the SAA population indicating such, until further changes are made by the Governor and State of IL. The policy can be found HERE.
Phase 4 documentation for operating youth sports within IL details are below. This is what SAA was following until changes were made with the Tier 3 Resurgence Mitigation changes in late Nov. These could be reinstated in Q1 of 2021, or there could be entirely new rules to follow, this is an ever changing situation, and SAA is reacting and changing as quickly as possible to stay within state guidelines for Youth recreational entities. With the official opening of the state of IL to phase 4 on today Friday June 26th 2020, youth sport organizations can resume operating competitive events in our area, following the IL phase 4 guidelines, of course. Our volunteers have been working tirelessly to plan out how we will operate during phase 4, and how each sport will comply with IL DCEO phase 4 guidelines while providing the best possible experience for participants. SAA is taking participant safety very seriously and it is our main priority during this time. SAA has published a organization wide "Return to Play" Policy that can be found Here
We encourage EVERY SAA member to read this policy carefully. This is official SAA policy and is required to be adhered to by SAA participants, parents, and volunteers just like adhering to the SAA By-Laws, and is included in what must be followed under our Code of Conduct for players, commissioners, coaches, and parents/guardians. To supplement this SAA policy please be aware of the IL DCEO phase 4 guidelines for operating Youth Sport organizations, which can be found HERE
Let's safely and respectfully get back out on the fields, in the gyms, and back to youth sports in Schaumburg!
