    How will COVID-19 affect this season? Affect your clubs? Affect your teams? Are we seriously looking to have players register by May 15th? These are seriously exceptional times, we should have exceptional flexibility!

    Looking more like there won't be a season in Ottawa, as we get closer to the end of July and increasing COVID cases. The Outaouais league is up and running though, and I noticed that St. Stefan simply entered there rather than in the OCSL. Anyone know whether that's actually a separate club than the one that plays in OCSL? If not, why can't everyone else do this?

    I don't think there will be a season with the way things are going. One of the groups offering supplemental training had a trainer test positive for covid, but he kept coaching with this group, as well as training with his team, until getting the result. In the meantime, he possibly exposed people attending this training as well as his teammates. Some of his teammates in turn do supplemental training elsewhere, and some also help out at summer camps for their club. God only know how many players (including young kids) may have been indirectly exposed because of this group.

      Heard about this. Guess PLSQ will have to push back the start of their season while 1/4 of the league's players self-quarantine.

      There are actually 6 teams in the PLSQ men's division, so only 1/6 of the league needs to be quarantined (if that's any better). Women's division has 4 teams, but not sure whether the women's team was also impacted by this. My guess would be they were, since there was also a girls camp going on.

      Out of curiosity, does anyone know whether the company issued refunds to participants of the camp after this fiasco?

      Important question - the women's PLSQ season is supposed to start tomorrow (Jul 25). Were any of OSU's women's PLSQ players at the camp in question earlier this week with the trainer who tested positive for covid? PLSQ schedule still shows the game is on as scheduled, with no communication to the contrary. I assume none attended and are not required to self-quarantine for a two week period?

      Is my understanding correct? The trainer who tested positive works for a training group/company which is separate from OSU. This separate group knew he was being tested and let him continue coaching. OSU did not know about it until after they were informed he tested positive.
      Am I correct?

      That's my understanding. There isn't anything OSU or any other club could have done because information was withheld. I think what the questions are getting at are whether everyone has taken the appropriate precautions after that. The individual who tested positive trained with OSU's men's PLSQ team while he was positive, which means everyone from team who attended that practice should be self-quarantining for two week beginning this past Wednesday. If the season is set to start August 1st, that means it should be delayed. I assume that is what's happening, but don't know for sure. The PLSQ women's division starts today, so I think the more pressing question is whether any of their players were at the camp with the individual who tested positive, and whether any of those attendees (if any) trained with the rest of their team after that. And whether the game actually went on today.

      I know someone from another club whose kid had to get tested and they said the testing site was full of OSU kids. Did they require or suggest that everyone get tested?

      To the question above about the men's PLSQ schedule, OSU's schedule was pushed back to allow for the 2-week quarantine period.

    Wear a mask for Christ's sake! Otherwise, when we go to the toilet to crap we'll not wash hands or wipe our asses; then in your favorite public or **private** venue, rub our shit stained naked asses in that can of beans in the supermarket or chair at the pub. All in show solidarity and comradery with ***your** exercise of **our** individual freedoms. Think about that next time you proudly see, in a chair or a can, our Constitutional Stain on ALL of us liberty! Brothers in Arms!

      This goes beyond wearing a mask - it's simply downright deceptive on this group's part. They and the trainer knew he was being tested and withheld the information from participants. In the meantime, the trainer and the participants had contact with other teammates and with kids attending another camp.

    Very irresponsible and unprofessional behaviour.

    Thanks for answering my question about OSU not knowing about the positive case. That makes me feel better. I have been happy with how OSU has been handling things.

    To answer some other questions- the camp for my child was included as part of our regular fees for the year. New camp days have been scheduled to make up for the 3 cancelled days.

    As for testing, we were told our group didn't have contact and was low risk. Testing was not mentioned. I'm not sure about other groups.

    I'm happy to read that the PLSQ team's schedule was pushed back and hope the rest of the players and coaches are OK.

      Good to hear they're taking it seriously. I'm pleased with how Futuro is handling it as well. Anyone who was at the "external camp in question" has to self-isolate (per Ottawa Public Health, I believe), but Futuro had anyone who was in contact with any of those kids go get tested before returning (subject to a negative test).

      Too bad that there are some yahoos out there putting people at risk though.

    So ERSL officially canceled their season on Friday. Only thing left is potentially OCSL's rec divisions (MR/WR/OT/Masters), but I'll be surprised if anything happens. I did see that NCISL and some of the private companies operating around town are running leagues - NCISL on the basis that they're a "club" and not a "league", so all teams are internal; the others are operating because they aren't sanctioned and obviously aren't running the leagues with people's health in mind.

    Anyone know if there have been issues in Quebec yet? Their leagues have been running a couple of weeks now.

    Let's hope clubs are allowed to start playing each other again this fall/winter.

      OCSL officially canceled their rec divisions today as well. I do agree we need to be careful, but wonder how they're managing things in Quebec, particularly given that leagues across the province, including Montreal are playing. Wonder if they'll have issues at some point.

    Gotta get back to some sense of normalcy, boys. Let's get back on the pitch, boys.
