We are pleased to inform you that the Return to Sport Guidelines from viaSport have been released allowing Figure Skating to resume in BC. The BC/YK Section Return to Play for Figure Skating Guidelines have also been approved by the BC/YK Section Board of Directors, which provides the detail by which clubs can return to the rinks should their local facility be open. Please take a close look at all the detail in the documents posted on the BC/YK Section COVID-19 page and work with your facility for a unified approach to return to the rink.
Appendix B, the Skate Canada Waiver, is a very important document and is currently going through a preparation procedure and should be available soon. All skaters, parents, coaches, and volunteers must give written consent by signing and submitting the official Skate Canada waiver prior to any participation.
