Additional information concerning all ski programs will be announced in the coming weeks. You can expect to receive information about Coaching Staff, Covid Planning, Clubhouse Use, Hours of Operation, Volunteer Opportunities, SnowStars, Development and Race Programs including Masters. The club newsletter will be circulated again to the membership. Please visit Alpine Yukon's webpage for updates. We've added a section for volunteers, "We love our volunteers" and we always welcome volunteers and always appreciate extra hands on deck! So, please get involved.
For those athletes returning to race and development programs.
Dryland Training is scheduled to begin Monday September 21 and Wednesday September 23 , 2020. Dryland is for the Yukon race team and select development athletes only. Alpine Yukon head coach reserves discretion.
The Board had to decrease the dryland class sizes to satisfy covid capacity requirements. Alpine Yukon territorial head coach at the request of the Board is organizing athletes into two groups of nine athletes. These groups will share the limited dryland training slots. Currently for athletes, there will be at least one training day per/group per /week. The board has tentatively approved an alternate fitness conditioning session to augment dryland's reduced schedule (so stay tuned for more). A more progressive and defined dryland program schedule is developing and information will be sent to parents and athletes expediently, hopefully on Sunday. Please note, dryland classes are for the Yukon race team and select development athletes only.
While Alpine Skiing is being able to advance the program, it is still important that the return of activities be done gradually. For our sport advancing activities in Phase 3, a gradual approach has been recommended - slowly reintroducing scaled-back activities allowing for flexibility while testing out safety measures and making other adjustments. In order to restart operations and return to sport during the COVID-19 pandemic, while maintaining compliance with CEMA and the guidelines set by the Yukon's Chief Medical Officer- Alpine Yukon is developing a return to sport COVID-19 Plan. Alpine Yukon's COVID-19 return to sport plan will be posted, shared and communicated within our membership on approach to the ski season start-up.
On behalf of the Executive and Board of Directors of Alpine Yukon, we look forward to making the most of this 2020//21 season, and hope to see you all on the mountain. If you have any questions, please direct your enquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org
