To the members of the OCCNA/NASC community:
Given the nature of the spread of the Covid19
And the issues in our province and the direction give to us from our provincial organizations such as Ontario Minor Hockey Association. They have decided to cease all minor hockey in the province of Ontario and it is with regret that we have decided to also cease our NASC hockey operations effectively immediately.
Also received today word from Ontario Soccer that all indoor and outdoor actives to be suspended at this time
Further, although we have yet to hear from our provincial organizations that regulate our summer sports programs, Soccer and softball there is a strong possibility that these sports will also need to either delay or suspend operations. I would ask that you monitor the situation and follow our web sites for further information as it becomes available.
Also, please be aware that any and all OCCNA or NASC organization meetings will be suspended immediately and will resume when it permits.
This includes all OCCNA or NASC monthly meetings and its subcommittee meetings.
All communications should be through electronic means as necessary.
More information will be available as becomes known
Thank you for your understanding in this matter.
Please be aware that at the direction from the City of Oshawa we have also decided to close all of our OCCNA clubhouses to any gatherings. Thus at this time I want to advise that all clubhouses operated by the Oshawa Central Council of Neighbourhood Associations will be closed. Please be patient and contact your rental representative for further information.
Please be advised that their are some new restrictions that are being implemented by Ontario Soccer. We would ask that you please visit the NASC Soccer web page at nascsoccer.org and follow the link to Covid 19 for the update.
The City has closed all their facilities from March 14 – April 6. I’m sure that after this date they will evaluate the situation and we should get further clarification at that time. I will keep you updated.
Once again, I am instructing all Neighbourhood Association clubhouses to be closed for this period of time. The importance is that if someone gets sick from attending a function that was hosted in one of our neighbourhood association clubhouses it could result in all kinds of issues.
I would suggest that you contact all of your rentals for this period of time and advise them of the closures. They would be entitled to a full refund of deposits with an apology and the assurance that when the clubhouses resume operation we will work with them to find an alternative date to host their events if they still desire.
Thank you for your attention in this matter and feel free to contact me if your require further clarification.
