Important Notice from YAS
July 2, 2020
Effective June 29, 2020 Young Athlete Saskatchewan Inc. (YAS)
Sports School, a registered Saskatchewan corporate entity, has been
authorized by the Government of Saskatchewan to hold its 2020
weekly youth basketball camps during July and August in Saskatoon
Accordingly, YAS has immediately re-commenced accepting registrations
for its camps scheduled for the week of July 20 to 24, July 27 to 31
and continuing for its weekly camps scheduled throughout August.
Registrations for camps will continue until camps reach COVID-19
enrolment limits. Visit the YAS web site for additional details and to
register on line www.yas.ca
All youths who were registered for YAS camps back in February and
early March, prior to the COVID-19 shut down, remain registered,
with the following exception:
Those who were registered for camps in Saskatoon during the weeks of July 6 to 10 and July 13 to 17 are notified that those camps have been withdrawn due to the City of Saskatoon not yet approving the rental of its Cosmo Civic Centre gym at which those camps were scheduled. Parents and guardians of youths registered for YAS camps July 6 to 10 and July 13 to 17 in Saskatoon are requested to contact the YAS office immediately in order to request a transfer to another YAS 2020 camp later during the summer or to receive a full refund of their camp fees.
The FREE YAS Mini-Camps scheduled for July 2 and 3 in each city
have been withdrawn, with the possibility that they may be re-
scheduled for later during this summer or early fall.
YAS basketball camps are headed by certified teachers who are also
accomplished basketball coaches. Accordingly, the YAS basketball
skills-development curriculum will be followed as it has been during
past summers. This will include basketball skills instruction, drills,
scientific skills testing, and follow-up skills-reinforcement competitions.
It will also include regular-game scrimmages.
A COVID-19 questionnaire that every youth registered for
YAS 2020 basketball camp will be required to bring with them to their
camp head instructor (certified teacher), every camp morning.
Every YAS staff member will also be required to adhere on an ongoing
basis and strictly to Saskatchewan Government COVID-19 restrictions.
Regular and additional sanitizing precautions will be taken at the gyms.
