Club Statement – Return to Play
Following the release of the Football Manitoba’s (FM) Return to Play protocols just over a week ago, the Club underwent an extensive review of the protocols and came to the decision that in the interests of player safety, we will not be undertaking a tackle program this year.
The Club also recognized that with the FM Return to Play requirement that players do not participate in any other organized sports, our numbers would be so depressed that we wouldn’t be able to have enough players to play games internally.
Our decision not to offer a tackle program this year has been mirrored by all of the other Manitoba Minor Football Association (MMFA) Clubs, who have also confirmed that they will not have a tackle program this year.
Looking ahead, the Board will now be looking at setting up a Winter/Spring indoor camp with a view to, hopefully, having a more normal season in 2021.
