Skate Canada: Alberta - NWT/Nunavut Return to Play Update – July 3, 2020
Dear Section Clubs, Skating Schools, Coaches and Officials
To continue to provide support to our clubs and skating schools getting back on the ice, the Section has developed a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) which will continue to be updated periodically during this return to skating transition and available on the Section’s dedicated webpage https://skateabnwtnun.ca/covid-19-2/ .
We know that people are anxious to move into Phase 2 and resume other programming. The advisory group has been reviewing the Skate Canada COVID Delivery Standards and Requirements and developing the Phase 2 protocols to align with them. We expect to distribute the approved Phase 2 protocols by mid-week, next week. Please see the attached update for additional information.
On behalf of the Section, thank you to everyone for their patience and we are excited to see you getting back on the ice….as of today we have 20 clubs and skating schools that have resumed activities or will be starting next week!
We continue to encourage everyone to collaborate – boards, volunteers and coaching teams – to work together more than ever to ensure a safe environment for everyone returning to enjoy our sport.
