Covid community fitness programs

Spartan Soccer Indoor program is now on hold until Alberta Health Services (AHS) recommends indoor programs or it is safe to proceed without precautions.

We believe during the winter months—especially now as things are not normal—we need to focus on community and team building activities. We need challenges and opportunities that break the norm, get us out, and let us be active, laugh and enjoy what we can while remaining safe. Outdoors is safer than indoors. The risk is less.

We’ve devised an outdoor program that is modified daily based upon the weather conditions to ensure your enjoyment, activity, and health is top of mind. Further, we have placed a cap of 20 members to a cohort group. The smallest cohort group should be 8 members. The cohorts groups will not interact with each other in any form of game. We are using the word cohorts as it is the popular word today. We actually want to call these small groups clans or tribes. The competition is based upon team performance relative to other groups.

Umm, that’s not how it works. Please google that.
