Welcome to the Varsity Community Association
FALL 2020 Building and Program Update – Varsity Community Association
Varsity Community Association is committed to providing a safe and welcoming space for the community. 2020 has provided us with a significant number of challenges including a global pandemic and fire damage to the community association building. The team at VCA has been working through the logistics required for a phased approach to re-opening the building. As we have a significant number of user groups that access VCA, we need to take thoughtful steps in our re-opening to reduce risks to participants and staff and ensure the long term success of future programming. We appreciate that many users are anxious to get back to their old routines and access the facility. We too look forward to launching community initiatives. Most activities and services that VCA provides are not recommended until the province enters Stage 3 of relaunch. With this in mind, we will continue to work with the City of Calgary and Alberta Health Services resources to determine not only what programs and services can launch, but how we can safely facilitate these activities.
Varsity Out of School Care – Space available in all programs.
The relaunch of our Out of School Care Program has been a huge success especially with the implementation of the Aimy Contactless Sign In / Out app. We would like to thank all our parents for working with our staff and making this transition a success. As of Nov 24th new Mandatory AHS restrictions will see Grades K-6 move to at-home learning for the week of January 4-8. We look forward to seeing everyone back on January 11th.
Varsity Park Rinks Update
VCA will not be putting ice in this season This was not an easy decision for anyone and there was support for and against putting in ice. With all factors considered (and there were many) ranging from safety of volunteers to managing numbers on the ice and the remaining length of the season, it was decided to forego the 2020/21 season.
We are looking forward to next season and welcoming back our skaters.
With current case counts of COVID 19 increasing and additional restrictions being added to curb the spread, the VCA will not be running any group programs (indoor or outdoor) for the winter session (Jan. – Mar. 2021). We will re-assess for the spring session (Apr. – Jun. 2021) but expect all programs to be deferred until AHS approves a Stage 3 re-launch strategy.
