As you may have heard last week the provincial government released an “Open for Summer Plan” which has three stages that will ease Covid-19 restrictions. This means we are getting close to being back on the mats! Stage 1 will go into effect starting June 1st, 2021. Stage 2 is projected to begin in approximately 2 weeks pending the number of vaccinations and case numbers in the province. This stage permits indoor and outdoor sport to resume without restrictions. We are still waiting on some more details from Alberta Sport, Physical Activity & Recreation (SPAR) to provide guidance on this stage. More information to come.
The Airdrie Judo Club would like to open out door training starting July 6 until our fall registration in early September. These would be 1 hour sessions open to all members and their families every Tuesday and Thursday night from 6pm – 7pm. This will take place in the field beside the dojo. No equipment will be needed except water and yoga mat if you do not like laying in grass. Also, we would encourage everyone to join us every Sunday starting July 10, for a Run/Walk/Bike/Rollerblade around Airdrie. Starting point will be at the dojo at 10am.
This September the Airdrie Judo Club will celebrate our 40th Anniversary. This is a great milestone, and will be celebrated throughout the entire judo community. By staying diligent, I am confident that when the club fully reopens, we will be stronger and have many more great years ahead of us.
Yours in Judo,
President, Airdrie Judo Club
