Hope your summer months are going well!!
As you are aware, the various regions and provinces in Canada are starting to open up as both cases and hospitalizations due to Covid-19 start to drop. The autumn and winter months this year will most likely be very different than last year, as vaccinations do their part to keep people healthier and lessen the impact of the virus on our provincial health systems.
The CNBTA has never been in the business of dictating to our members how to run their clubs - in our view, your business is exactly that...your business! We trust that as mature adults, you will take the time to seek out the most up to date information that will help keep your athletes and their families as safe as possible. With that said, we are offering the following advice in conjunction of the reopening of your are facilities:
1) Please consult and remain up to date on the current restrictions of both your Provincial and local health authorities. As we move forward, we are hearing that Regional approaches and restrictions may become more common, so it is important that you remain vigilant to obtain and maintain up to date information regarding your particular area.
2) We will continue to extend the designation of 'high performance athlete' to all of our competitive athlete members (so NOT including recreational athlete memberships), to assist in the accessibility of facilities. The current information we have indicates we are allowed to do so, as the CNBTA is not a member of Sports Canada, or any other provincial body that supersedes our ability to make such a designation; we will advise you if this situation changes. Again however, please remember that your Provincial or local health unit has the FINAL say if you are permitted to use facilities for training purposes.
Finally, just a message to remind us all to be kind, and if possible, 'share the wealth'....if you know of a facility in your area that is available and accessible for twirling, we encourage you to share the information with the other clubs and twirlers in your area. We are all in this together!!
Hoping you all have an amazing remainder of your summer, and that you are looking forward to the twirling season ahead.
