Indoor Leagues

2020-2021 Indoor Leagues

Edmonton winters are cold but you can stay warm and active by playing Ultimate with EUPA! EUPA is offering multiple Ultimate leagues that are played indoors on artificial turf. There are several league options to participate in during the long winter. We hope to see you on the fields!

It might look slightly different than usual with COVID-19, but we're still playing Ultimate this winter! This winter, EUPA’s indoor sessions will run October 27 to December 17, January 5 to March 11, and March 14 to April 18. Each session’s details and registration information will be added approximately a month before the session starts to allow for adjustments due to COVID-19.

EUPA COVID-19 Guidelines for Play

All EUPA Cohort Leagues will be run under these guidelines. Please note that with the move indoors and changes in provincial guidelines, some of these guidelines have changed from our summer and fall cohort leagues (changes from previous outdoor iterations in bold).

To stay connected with EUPA and make sure you don't miss new league or tournament announcements, sign up for our mailing list or follow us on social media! You can find us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or in our Facebook group.

  • All leagues are being run in a cohort structure as per the Provincial Guidelines for Organized Sports.
  • EUPA does not permit participation in our cohort leagues simultaneous to participation in other sports cohorts (where masks and physical distancing are not used while playing).
  • If a player cannot attend, subs in their place will not be allowed.
  • Within their cohort, physical distancing & masks will not be used while actively playing. While not playing (e.g. when on the sideline, putting on cleats, etc.), physical distancing of 2m should be observed. Keeping to your cohorts does not negate the need to practice good sanitation and hygiene (see guidelines below).
  • Any spectators or family members who are not part of the cohort MUST practice physical distancing if they come to a league event.
  • A 14 day break without participation in any sport cohort and without COVID-19 symptoms is strongly recommended before switching cohorts.
  • Participating in a cohort league increases your risk of exposure to COVID-19. The cohort league structure merely limits the potential for spread in case of exposure. If you or people in your cohort family are part of particularly vulnerable groups (e.g. are seniors, have respiratory illness, or are immunocompromised), we discourage participation in our cohort leagues.
  • Participants must wear a mask when entering and exiting the venue, as well as when leaving the field area.
    • Once they arrive, players should avoid leaving the field area except in the case of emergency.
  • Players must check in with an ambassador at the check in table upon arrival. Hands and warmup discs must be sanitized at this station.
    • If participants arrive late, they must still check in with an ambassador and sanitize before removing their mask, warming up, or playing.
  • Players must use the venue’s entrances and exits as they are designated.
  • Ambassadors will be assigned to each cohort to oversee compliance with safety guidelines.
    • Ambassadors will bring game discs, scoreboards, and sanitizer.
    • Game discs and scoreboards will be sanitized before being brought, and again upon the conclusion of play.
    • Game discs will be replaced at halftime.
    • Ambassadors or someone they nominate should be the only participants to adjust the scoreboards.
  • All participants must follow our safety guidelines.
    • All players must fill out our symptom screening form and check in before playing or otherwise breaking physical distancing (including warming up with others).
    • If you arrive late, you must check in with the Ambassador at your game and sanitize before playing.
    • Whenever not actively playing on the field, keep physically distant and practice good hygiene.
    • Keep 2m of distance between players on the sidelines and when getting ready.
    • Cover coughs and sneezes (using the inside of your elbow is recommended). If you blow your nose, cough or sneeze into your hand, or use a tissue, you must sanitize your hands.
    • No handshakes or other celebratory contact.
    • No sharing of water, clothing, or other equipment.
    • Come as ready to play as possible: cleats (and gloves) should be the only equipment you need to put on.
  • Players must follow AHS isolation requirements, and remember that failure to do so could have legal ramifications.
    • If you have a cough, fever, shortness of breath, runny nose, sore throat, excessive fatigue, altered sense of taste or smell, or flu-like muscle or joint pain that is not related to a pre-existing illness or health condition, you must isolate and not participate in our programming for 10 days.
      • The mandatory isolation period is 10 days from the start of symptoms, or until symptoms resolve, whichever takes longer.
    • If you have the above symptoms, tested negative for COVID-19, and have:
      • known exposure to COVID-19, you are legally required to isolate for 14 days.
      • no known exposure to the virus, you are not legally required to isolate.
    • If any of the above symptoms develop, even after a negative test, you must self-isolate and not participate in our programming for 10 days or until symptoms resolve fully.
    • You are legally required to isolate for 14 days and monitor for symptoms if you are a close contact of a person who tested positive for COVID-19 (provides care, lives with or has close physical contact without appropriate use of personal protective equipment, or comes into direct contact with infectious body fluids). If you become sick with cough, fever, shortness of breath, runny nose or sore throat during this time, you must isolate for an additional 10 days from the beginning of symptoms or until you are feeling well, whichever takes longer.
    • If you or one of your close contacts test positive for COVID-19, you must follow the directions of the AHS representatives who contact you and immediately notify us by emailing admin@eupa.ca.

A failure to follow these guidelines or the instructions of Ambassadors could result in removal from the cohort league.

To play in our cohort leagues, all players must consent to the following documents and statements:

  • COVID-19 Waiver, Attestation, and Release of Liability
  • EUPA Amateur Athletic Waiver
  • I agree that the EUPA Cohort League I am registering for is the only sports cohort I am or will participate in at one time.
  • If I develop a cough, fever, shortness of breath, runny nose, sore throat, excessive fatigue, altered sense of taste or smell, or flu-like muscle or joint pain that is not related to a pre-existing illness or health condition, I agree to stay home and abstain from participation in EUPA’s programming. I will isolate from my sports cohort for 10 days or until I get a negative COVID-19 test result, and will not return until symptoms resolve.
  • If I or one of my close contacts test positive for COVID-19, I will follow the directions of the AHS representatives who contacted me and immediately notify EUPA by emailing admin@eupa.ca.
