Nova Scotia Stick Curling Association
Welcome to the official website for the Nova Scotia Stick Curling Association (NSSCA).
This site will be a resource of all the information you want / need to know about stick curling and its various leagues in Nova Scotia.
COVID 19 - MEMBERS UPDATE JULY 2020
The NSCA Return to Play document has been approved by Dr. Strang. This is subject to change if there are significant epidemiological changes either positive or negative; but this is where we are now.
Your club will likely also issue return to play protocols specific to your rink / club.
There is a FAQ section on return to play at https://nscurl.com/return-to-play-plan-questions-answers/ that you may find interesting.
You can also check out the national stick curling association return to play document at https://canadianstickcurling.ca/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/Stick_Curling_during_Covid-on-ice-play-V5.pdf .
Two other Nova Scotia specific factors to be aware of:
1) There are specific mask related restrictions that will be effective July 31 that will impact your club as there are public common areas to be considered.
2) The NSCA Return to Play document does not address tournament and championship play. That is a separate proposal that NSCA will be submitting for approval.
We will keep you updated as we find out additional information.
COVID 19 - BACK TO PLAY PLAN
The NSCA Return to Play document has been approved by Dr. Strang. This is subject to change.
COVID 19 - MEMBERS UPDATE June 2020
The Nova Scotia Curling Association (NSCA) chair and executive director have met with Dr. Strang and there is another meeting scheduled.
A NSCA committee of diverse stakeholders has been created to develop a return to play protocol. Several committee meetings will be held with a target submission date of July 10.
The return to play protocol developed will go for approval to: Sport NS, then Communities Culture and Heritage Department, then Dr. Strang
Curling clubs can’t open until the return to play plan is approved by Dr. Strang. That is not likely to happen before September.
Several points to note are that any approved plan will require 6 foot distancing be maintained and will include operational aspects from arrival to departure.
Obviously, there are still lots of unknowns. NS Stick Curling Association will keep you informed as we have additional detail.
