Montreal West Civic Recreation Association COVID19 Protocol



Spring 2021 

The following procedures and protocols have been developed with the safety of all MWCRA families & programs participants in mind. These protocols are in effect as of today and are subject to change. It is imperative that all participants read these protocols carefully and adhere to them strictly.

The ability of MWCRA to continue providing a safe sporting/activity experience is dependent on everyone following the “rules”. As health and safety is our main priority, any participant or family member who is caught deliberately violating these policies and protocols will be barred from further play with no refund granted.

Current Situation as of April 2021

Outdoor activities are permitted in groups of 8 outside with one coach per plateau.

No spectators

Masks required to play for those 10 an older. For soccer U8 do not have to wear a mask & U10, U12, U15 do have to wear a mask on the field during play.

COVID protocol must be followed (check-in, sanitize , bring personal equipment)

General Rules

  • A COVID monitor is stationed at the entrance of the field of play door ensuring everyone is sanitizing their hands and to verify your heath check status in TeamSnap is complete. If not they will be asking a series of health-related questions
  • Hand sanitizing is mandatory for everyone upon entry to and exit from the field of play
  • All players, coaches & referees are to bring their own pre-filled, labelled water bottle. There is no sharing of water bottles under any circumstances. Water bottles are to be emptied at home, not at the field of play
  • Currently we are not permitted to share equipment, so players, referees, coaches must double check you have everything prior to arrival
  • All players, coaches, referees, volunteers & parents/guardians must wear a face mask to enter the field of play, including players 10 years of age and under.
  • Arrival is 10 minutes prior to activity. Players must arrive dressed with their equipment and enter by the designated entrance.
  • Exiting the field of play must occur a maximum of 10 minutes following the termination of the activity. Everyone is to use the designated exit. Appropriate social distancing should be maintained during this time. No horseplay is allowed (e.g. spraying each other with water from their bottle)
  • No parents are permitted on the field of play at this time.
  • SPITTING will not be tolerated. Members found to be intentionally spitting may be asked to leave the field of play
  • The team manager/COVID monitor or a coach on site will keep an attendance of each player through Teamsnap. This attendance will be verified and printed everyday by the MWCRA. This point is extremely important as MWCRA must ensure proper records are maintained in case of exposure and contact tracing is required
  • Because the virus can persist on some surfaces for up to 3 days, materials that are in contact with the mouth or respiratory secretions (e.g. water bottle; mouth guard; towels) should be washed immediately after arriving home.

Masks, pre and post activity protocols

  • Upon arrival everyone is to wear a mask including coaches & referees. This includes those 10 year of age and younger.
  • It is very important that masks do not get left on benches.
  • All coaches, referees and other staff must wear a mask at all times.
  • Any spectators must wear face masks at all times and respect the 2 meter social distancing

COVID Protocols for all Members 

  • The email is the point of contact for :
    1. Questions from parents, referees, volunteers and members regarding our COVID protocols.
    2. For all parents with even one of the following situations must contact the MWCRA administrator:
      • A child whose parents have been contacted by Public Health because of COVID-19. The information provided by Public Health must be included in the email message.
      • A place to request if a player/coach/volunteer can return to play, when the situation is unclear or has not been addressed in our protocols.
  • All communication in regards to COVID-19 with MWCRA will be kept strictly confidential. We will always respect the confidentiality of our families.
  • COVID-SHAMING will not be tolerated. There is no stigma associated with COVID-19. At no time should a parent, volunteer or child be made to feel shame, fear or discomfort by other members of our association. Any instance of COVID-SHAMING will be dealt with in the same vein as bullying.
  • Participation is dependent on the players health status, as well as, the status of family members within the same household. In all cases where a family member, volunteer or a child has a question regarding protocol please email us at

The Man, the Myth, the Watchmaker

Pierre-Yves Müller, the notorious Swiss watch maker, is sitting in a minimalistic garden chair outside his house located in the heart of fairy tale Swiss Alps. FashionFreaks were lucky enough to get an interview with this mysterious precision watchmaker.

It strikes me the second I see him, this man is the real deal. Well groomed fingers with nails trimmed to perfection. These hands are his tools and they are taken care of in the same manner an auto repairman takes care of his tools.

Pierre-Yves greets us with a conservative smile, there is no room for small talk in this interview. But small talk is not necessary, we want to know everything about the man and his company, Tick Tock, Tick Tock...
