Attachment: City of Oshawa Screening Tool - outdoor permit.pdf (559.27 K)

REMINDER--> Any player who is found to be playing and has not completed this screening requirement will result in the full team being removed from the DRSA for the 2021 season** NO WARNINGS WILL BE GIVEN BY THE DRSA. 

This is the procedure that each of your players/coaches/spectators/kids must complete before coming to the diamonds, this must be completed for every game.  There are no exceptions to this rule ...ie  This must be completed if you are double vaccinated. There is no circumstance where this does not have to be completed. 

All players/coaches must show their completed screening to the umpire with their name and the date that they completed the screening. This date must match the date of the game on their completed screening form. 

This can be done in several forms for the umpire. 

--> Printout of completed screening
--> Screenshot on your phone
--> Copy of the e-mail you receive after completing

I completed 2 samples to try it out and it took me less than a minute to complete it each time. 

For Location --> Pick "Other Parks and Sports Fields"
