Restrictions Exemption Program

Restrictions Exemption Program

Hello Judo Alberta Members,

It has been a busy 24 hours, but following the recent announcement of the Covid-19 update by the Government of Alberta, it was decided by the Judo Alberta Executive Committee that it is of the best interest for our membership to postpone all Judo Alberta sanctioned events until the “Alberta State of Public Health Emergency” is declared over. We will monitor the current situation closely and make adjustments as needed.

Starting September 20th, 2021 Judo Alberta will be following the Restrictions Exemption Program for all sanctioned Judo Alberta events as outlined by the Government of Alberta https://www.alberta.ca/covid-19-public-health-actions.aspx. Between now and September 20th, everything will be business as usual.

WHAT THIS MEANS

Starting September 20th 2021, ALL Judo Alberta sanctioned events will enforce the following restrictions in order for members ages 12 and over (coaches, athletes, staff, parents, volunteers) to attend/participate:

  • proof of vaccination
    • single dose accepted between September 20 and October 25 if received 2 weeks before time of service
    • double doses required after October 25
  • documentation of a medical exemption
  • proof of a privately-paid negative PCR or rapid test within 72 hours of service (tests from AHS or Alberta Precision Laboratories not allowed)

*It is recommended that all members access their records at https://myhealth.alberta.ca/myhealthrecords. More details to follow regarding proof of vaccination processes.

  • screen for symptoms
  • maintain 2 metres distancing, except youth while engaged in physical activity
  • wear a mask, except youth while engaged in physical activity

IT IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED BY JUDO ALBERTA THAT ALL CLUBS FOLLOW THE RESTRICTIONS EXEMPTION PROGRAM. IF NOT, THE FOLLOWING RESTRICTIONS WILL APPLY:

Adult (over 18) sport, fitness, recreation and performance activities (Sept 20)

  • The following restrictions apply unless the facility or program implements the restrictions exemption program:
    • Indoor group classes and activities are not permitted.
    • Indoor competitions are paused except where vaccine exemptions have been granted.
    • Indoor one-on-one training and solo activities are allowed with 3 metre physical distancing.
    • Outdoor activities can continue with no restrictions.

Youth (under 18) sport, fitness, recreation and performance activities (Sept 16)

  • Indoor group classes, training, and competitions are permitted, but participants are required to:

TRU EARTH Athlete Fundraiser

TRU EARTH Athlete Fundraiser

Judo Alberta is teaming up with TRU EARTH to raise money for our Judo Alberta athletes and programs. This is a great opportunity for you to help support Judo Alberta by purchasing these fantastic TRU EARTH products.

TRU EARTH Eco-Strips are the smarter way to clean laundry. Each laundry strip packs ultra-concentrated, hypoallergenic, eco-friendly cleaning power into a tiny, pre-measured strip of liquidless laundry detergent that you just toss in the wash. Its low-sudsing formula works in all types of washing machines, including high-efficiency (HE). The smart hypoallergenic laundry detergent formulation effectively seeks out and dislodges dirt molecules and stains, keeping them in suspension until they are rinsed away. It makes your laundry washing chore easier, healthier, more economical, and much kinder to our planet.

ORDER TODAY & PLEASE SHARE OUR FUNDRAISING LINK: 30% OFF BACK TO SCHOOL SALE UNTIL SEPTEMBER 05, 2021: https://fundraising.tru.earth/JudoAlberta 

Judo Alberta is encouraging its membership to order from TRU EARTH and to share our fundraising link to friends, family, employees, and colleagues. If we are going to make an impact on raising funds for Judo Alberta athletes and programs, we will need everyone to work as a team. This is a fantastic product!

Judogi Cleaning & Covid-19 Reality

It is very important that judoka are washing their judo uniforms and training clothes following each training. TRU EARTH is a great laundry detergent that is fantastic for cleaning judogis and is environmentally friendly because we are not using the big plastic bottles.

TRU EARTH laundry strips are perfect for athletes that will be traveling to competitions and training camps. No need to purchase laundry detergent on the road or have a bag of detergent or a container of liquid detergent. The TRU EARTH strips will simply fit into your baggage taking almost no room without having to worry about a mess.
