Dear OLA Club Presidents and League/Zone/Club Registrars:


The Ontario Lacrosse Association (OLA) has updated its COVID-19 Participant Vaccination Policy in alignment with the recent provincial announcement to ease public health measures, and is lifting its requirement for participants to demonstrate proof of vaccination to access programs and services. This update is consistent with the most recent Province of Ontario instruction to provincial sports organizations and helps our sport remain inclusive for all our members.

We will continue to monitor the current situation alongside the City of Brampton and/or the OLA and will continue to make changes on our site as necessary.  Please review our social media platforms and our website for all updates.


Following the Government of Ontario’s announcement on Thursday, January 20, City of Brampton recreation centres will reopen beginning January 31, 2022.


City of Brampton recreation centres will reopen on Monday, January 31 for registered and drop-in programming. In accordance with provincial regulations, capacity limits at recreation centres will be reduced to fifty per cent.


Pre-registration is not required for visits to recreation centres, however, it is recommended that visitors purchase their services online in advance of their visit as all services are first-come, first-served. Available programs can be viewed and purchased online or by calling 311 beginning Wednesday, January 26 at 10 am. Admission to programs can be purchased in person at recreation centres beginning Monday, January 31.

Those who held an active one-month membership at the time of closure on Wednesday, January 5 have had their membership cancelled and a pro-rated credit issued on their account.


Winter Registered Sessional Programs

The winter registered session resumes the week of January 31 for a shortened session. Participants who previously registered for winter programs have received a pro-rated credit on their client account to make up for the reduced session duration.

Registration is available online or by calling 311 beginning Wednesday, January 26 at 10 am.

COVID-19 Health and Safety Requirements


Proof of Vaccination Requirements

All visitors 12 years of age and older entering City of Brampton recreation centres are required to show proof of vaccination status. This applies to all participants and spectators in recreation centres, including youth, coaches, instructors, caregivers, volunteers and game officials.


Children who turn 12 years-old in 2022 (born in 2010) are to be provided a grace period of 12 weeks from their birthdate, during which they will not need to show proof of vaccination at indoor sports and recreational facilities. This will allow children the time needed to be vaccinated and meet proof of vaccination requirements. After the 12 week grace period is over, they will be required to show proof of vaccination.


Accepted Proof of Vaccination Methods

Visitors will be required to use the enhanced vaccine certificate with QR code and the Verify Ontario app in settings where proof of vaccination is required. The QR code can be used digitally or by printing a paper copy. Individuals can download their enhanced certificate with QR code by visiting here. Note: Proof of a negative COVID-19 test will not be accepted as an alternative to proof of full vaccination. A written medical exemption will no longer be accepted to access recreation centres.


Online Screening

All visitors will have the option to complete an online screening and contact tracing form prior to arrival at City of Brampton recreation centres. To access the online screening tool, visit here. Visitors can save time by completing the pre-screening questions online using a smartphone/computer in advance of their visit. Upon arrival at the designated screening area/entrance, all visitors must show screening confirmation (green check mark) via phone. Onsite paper-based contact tracing will continue to be made available for visitors who do not wish to complete online pre-screening.
