Triathlon BC regards the health, safety and well-being of our member athletes, coaches, officials and volunteers as our highest priority.

Between the cancellation of sanctioned events, and the launch of Triathlon BC’s Return to Sport Guidelines, it will be over 3 months without any formal competition. Throughout this pandemic, as critical information has changed, often on a hourly and daily basis, Triathlon BC has been committed to providing regular updates to our membership, while maintaining ongoing dialogue with key stakeholders, including Triathlon Canada, ViaSport, Sport BC and the Provincial Government.

Under the guidance of the BC Government and viaSport, a Return to Sport plan has been created to assist with the safe reopening of multisport activities across the province, noting these Guidelines can be adapted to accommodate specific environments and training groups.  This comprehensive document includes participant agreements, revised waivers and a Safety Plan template to help club administrators develop safety plans for their specific venues and activities.

It is a Provincial Health Office requirement that all Clubs submit and circulate their Safety Plan prior to any formal restart of activities.  Failure to submit a Safety Plan can put a Club and/or activity in jeopardy of losing insurance coverage.

Triathlon BC is thrilled that the gradual, responsible and phased openings can proceed, using newly approved, sport specific Guidelines and recommendations.

A reminder, it’s up to us to create a safe return to sport. All affiliated Clubs hosting activities must develop, post, and submit a COVID-19 Safety Plan before restarting.

 

NOTE: We will continue to monitor the fluid COVID-19 situation and adapt this plan as required.
