A Note about the Covid-19 Virus and the SCVAA

Staying Informed and Healthy

First and foremost, we care about everyone’s safety, and are closely monitoring the situation and guidance from the Minnesota Dept. of Health (MDH), the Center For Disease Control (CDC), MN. State High School League (MSHSL) and local school districts to ensure we are giving you the most up-to-date information possible. Because the situation and policies do vary, we encourage everyone to stay informed and follow the recommendations of your local health authorities.

It’s worth our repeating the advice for protecting yourself and others: Be sure to stay home from work or any activity when you are feeling sick. Wash your hands frequently with soap and/or alcohol-based sanitizers; avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth; cover your mouth or nose when you sneeze or cough; and maintain distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing. Of course, if you have a fever, cough, or difficulty breathing yourself, seek medical attention. 

We have taken all steps within our power to help mitigate the spread of the Coronavirus, Covid-19. We are fortunate that we have no programs currently running and our Winter Sports programs finished before the virus started to spread in the United States. We have cancelled our Annual Spring Volunteer Appreciation Banquet scheduled for April. We have postponed upcoming Board and Sport Commission meetings. We have put the start of our Baseball, Softball and Mountain Biking Seasons on hold. We are cautiously optimistic that we will be able to have a Summer Sports season and believe our kids will really need it but expect the start will be delayed, season possibly shortened and maybe also extended. We will continue to plan and assign players to teams, assign and contact coaches via email and build schedules but have postponed any coach meetings or equipment pickup dates until further notice. Further information will be posted here and distributed via email once we get further guidance from the health experts and state officials.

The SCVAA has relied on many thousands of volunteers since it's inception in 1967 and we would like to ask that the volunteer spirit continue during this time of need. While you are waiting to coach young boys and girls in youth sports, we ask that you take time to also check on those in need. Maybe you have an elderly neighbor(s) who you could go pickup groceries or medications for so they may remain home and safer. Or maybe you are a stay-at-home parent and you have a neighbor(s) who are employed in the health care or emergency services fields and you can help them out with daycare while schools are closed? Whatever your situation or skill-set is, now would be a good time to put it to use as long as you can do it safely. Together we will overcome this situation and helping others is a great way to start.
