I received a number of emails wondering when/if CVAC is going to start up this season. My honest answer to that is “I really don’t know”. I recently received the following email from BC Athletics outlining what is necessary for a club to hold practices. After reading through everything I don’t feel CVAC could even come close to meeting the requirements. Unfortunately it means we have to be patient and wait for things to get back to normal, whatever that is. If on the other hand reading all of the information provided someone sees it differently and is willing to put it all together I’d be happy to support them.
BC Athletics Return to Track
BC Athletics is committed to safe sport for all members and has been working closely with Athletics Canada’s “Back on Track” Task Force, and viaSport to develop return to training guidelines.
BC Athletics will be following the return to training guidelines developed by Athletics Canada’s “Back on Track” Task Force. We have also published BC Athletics’ “Return to Training Addendum” which, highlights any additional or differing guidelines that have been set specifically for the Province of BC. Please visit our website for additional information and resources.
These guidelines should be used after making the personal decision that you are comfortable to return to training, coaching, officiating, program activity, club administration/management. It is the responsibility of each Member to undertake their own personal risk assessment and determine whether they are willing and able to return to sport at this time.
In order to safely begin our return to sport, all members must
- Agree to and sign the “Informed Consent and Assumption of Risk Agreement” – Parent/Guardian for Minors (under the age of 19)
- Agree to and sign the “Release of Liability, Waiver and Claims and Indemnity Agreement” – Adult members of BC Athletics
- Complete the “COVID-19 Questionnaire, Attestation and Participation Agreement” – Parent/Guardian for Minors (under the age of 19) or Adult members of BC Athletics
