Need to Know: High School Sports, Happy Hallow, & CP Holiday Train
The Regina High Schools Athletic Association (RHSAA) announced there will be no games held between schools this fall due to COVID-19.
In a post to its website Thursday, the RHSAA says the decision was made by Regina’s school divisions after consideration of numerous return to sports options. But with provincial COVID-19 guidelines, plus the safety of students and staff in mind, the call was made to call off fall sports for the year.
The decision affects football, cross country, soccer, and volleyball.
All schools still have the option to hold extra curricular athletics, practices or intramurals within their own school only.
High schools choosing to operate in-school competition will follow a list of start up and completion dates for each sport:
- Cross country running: Sept. 28 – Oct. 17
- Football: Sept. 28 – Oct. 31
- Soccer: Sept. 28 – Oct 31
- Volleyball: Oct. 13 – Nov. 28
Decisions on winter sports will be made at a later date.
Two weeks after opening, Lumsden’s Happy Hallow announced in a Facebook post yesterday that it will be closed for the rest of the season.
The decision to close was made after talking with health officials. Even though Happy Hallow is closed for the rest of the season, they are hoping to keep the store open and continue the sale of pumpkins.
The CP Holiday Train will be staying in the station this year due to Covid. CP will instead donate to food banks across the railway network this year and host virtual concerts in lieu of the annual event. Virtual Concert details will be released at a later date and they hope to resume the Holiday Train for next season!
