As many of you know, on September 1, the provincial government announced that starting on September 22, people attending indoor public settings will have to show proof of full vaccination in order to enter the venue. As a result, all members of Average Joe that are attending indoor games for the fall season, will have to show proof of full COVID-19 vaccination.
Since this rule was just announced, we are trying to work with our venue partners to determine exactly what this will look like in practice. However, we wanted to make all teams/individuals aware as soon as we could in case this impacts participating this fall. While the provincial rules don’t actually apply to employees, we have also committed that all of our game supervisors and refs be fully vaccinated.
For those members playing with us this fall, we ask for your patience as we figure out the best process for this. This kind of requirement is not something we have been set up to fulfill in the past and the government has not given us much time to figure it out before the fall season. We will work hard to figure out this latest curveball in what has been a challenging 18 months to run sports leagues. We are confident that we will have a fun season of fall sports for our members.

Our latest Team of the Month honour goes to Milton Wednesday Coed Volleyball Ladder veterans - 'Great Balls of Fire' - captained by Chris Laughren. On the history of his squad, Chris says "We've been playing in this league for over 8 years now. Our team has gone through a significant number of roster changes over that time, with only a few being a part of the original team, but we love the competition and the ladder structure. Recently, we've picked up a few key free agents who've helped us move up a rung on the ladder. Despite the tougher competition, we try not to take ourselves too seriously, with hopes to earn our beers/nachos at Rad Brother's (Milton bar) afterwards." Thanks to Great Balls of Fire for their great sportsmanship and commitment. We look forward to many more seasons with your squad.
