REGINA – Restrictions on outdoor sports will be eased on May 30, as part of the first step in the roadmap for the reopening of the province.

Adjustments have been made to speed the return of outdoor sports due to a reduced risk of transmission in an outdoor setting. The restrictions on indoor sports are expected to change at the second stage, that is, when outdoor sports were initially to return.

“Saskatchewanians have reduced the spread of COVID-19 by getting vaccinated,” Premier Scott Moe said. “So the next time you pass a field of happy kids playing softball, football or soccer, know you made it happen.”

Championship matches can resume but tournaments are still not allowed. The tournaments will be revisited in the second stage.

Teams participating in regional interprovincial leagues should contact the Commercial Response Team before starting to play. Interprovincial travel is not permitted.

Handshakes and high-fives are prohibited.

Contact details for coaches, officials and players should be recorded by the home team to facilitate contact tracing.

More details on outdoor sports can be found on the province’s website.
