Covid-19 Measures

Dear Parents and Athletes,

 

Due to the on-going Covid-19 pandemic, 2020/21 programs have and will continue to be updated and altered to keep our athletes and territory safe, as we continue to follow the guidelines from the Chief Medical Officer of Health.

Alpine Yukon acknowledges that this may change if Covid-19 numbers keep climbing or there are other directions from the Chief Health Medical Officer.

Please remember, that non-medical masks are not a substitute for physical distancing and staying home when sick. Continue to always practice the Safe 6 and adhere to the health and safety guidelines specific to your activity whether at dryland training or in your alpine ski program at Mount Sima. Alpine Yukon will keep you updated on any changes to Covid-19 Plans & Procedures affecting your program activity.

 

If you have any questions, please ask your coach or contact Alpine Yukon by email at alpineskiyukon@gmail.com

Let's all play safe and continue to have fun.

Sincerely,

Matthew Jenner

President
