COVID-19 Protocol & Guideline

We are committed to providing the highest levels of safety for our community.  

To ensure player and staff safety, we have implemented mandatory 'Safe Return to Play Protocol & Guidelines' for all Club Activities.  In order to play with the Quinte Sport & Social Club and stay in good standing, the following guidelines MUST be followed.  A zero-tolerance policy is in place for those who challenge these decisions.   

To ensure a successful season, please remember to practice safe physical distancing and a positive attitude!

All players are required to read, understand, and adhere to all COVID-19 Guidelines.

Start / End Dates

Tuesday:  Starts Tuesday, June 1 and ends on Tuesday, September 14.

 

Thursday: Starts Thursday, June 3 and ends on Thursday, September 23.

 

Friday: Starts Friday, June 4 and ends on Friday, September 17.


League start and end dates are subject to change.  QSSC endeavors to provide registered players and individuals with as much notice as possible should changes occur.  

# of Weeks

16 weeks.

For sports where the COVID-19 sport cohort rules limit just 4 teams per league, we will be posting the 16-weeks of games as two x 8-week schedules.  This will allow leagues to be re-aligned for skill (where possible) after the first half of the season

Estimated Game Times

Game length is 90 minutes.

Start times rotate between 6:00pm - 9:30pm.

Please note: QSSC makes every effort to ensure all teams receive an even mix of game times. In the event games are rescheduled, weekend and off-night games may be played.

Sunset Time:  During late August, outdoor sports may have game times adjusted based on the earlier sunset.  This means, games during these months could start at 5:45pm or 5:30pm.
 

Bye Dates & Make Up Games

There are no games on:

 

Tuesday: No bye dates.

Thursday: July 1 (Canada Day).

Friday:
No bye dates.

 

Depending on field closures and/or cancelled games, make up games will be played on another day of the week other than your regularly scheduled games (pending field availability).  Every effort is made to provide significant notice of a make-up game.  View our foul weather and game cancellation policy here
