COVID-19 UPDATES

 

The following information will be continually updated as more direction and requirements are provided by the Government of BC, viaSport, and Athletics Canada.

BC Athletics is committed to safe sport for all members and has been working with Athletics Canada's "Back on Track" Task Force and viaSport to develop return to training guidelines. Therefore, we will be following the return to training guidelines developed by the National task force, Back on Track. We have also highlighted any additional or differing guidelines that have been set specifically for the Province of BC. These guidelines should be used after making the personal decision that you are comfortable to return to training. These documents can be found below. 

As of Aug 24, 2020 BC Athletics is in Phase 3, "Progressively Loosen" of viaSport's Sport Activity Chart.  Allowing for regional competition.
