Alberta Lacrosse Association Framework for Return-to-Activity and Sport

Alberta Lacrosse Return-to-Activity/Sport Framework

Regulation 37 - Return-to-Activity


Lacrosse is an integral part of Alberta’s society. Lacrosse at all levels and abilities makes an important contribution to the physical, psychological and emotional well-being of individuals. At a population level, benefits of sport include direct economic benefits; healthcare benefits; educational benefits; and contribution to social capital through connectivity, resilience and creating stronger, cohesive communities,

The COVID-19 pandemic has had devastating effects on communities globally, leading to significant restrictions on all sectors of society, including sport. COVID-19 has impacted people in varying ways with many experiencing deteriorations in their mental health and financial wellbeing. Resumption of sport can significantly contribute to the re-establishment of normality in Alberta, in a COVID-19 environment.

This framework is a timely tool of a minimum baseline of standards, for “how” reintroduction of lacrosse activity will occur in a cautious and methodical manner, based on the best available evidence to optimize athlete and community safety. The principles outlined in this document apply equally to high performance/professional level, community competitive and individual passive (non-contact) sport. Decisions regarding the timing of resumption of lacrosse activity must be made in close consultation with the Provincial and/or Local Public Health Authorities. The priority at all times must be to preserve public health, minimizing the risk of community transmission.
