Phase two will allow for exhibition games within a mini league starting Oct. 17.
Phase three begins league play within mini leagues with a tentative start date of Nov. 1.
Phases two and three do not apply to age groups under 11, as they’re covered by a set of age-specific guidelines.
The fourth phase would see the mini-leagues expand on a tentative date of January 18, 2021.
The fifth and final phase does not currently have a possible start date but covers playoffs and provincial competition.
Moving into a new phase must come with approval from the Chief Medical Health Officer after considerations about the state of the pandemic in Saskatchewan at each point are made.
