As athletes, clubs, PTSOs and Alpine Canada begin to reintroduce training into our schedules the health and safety of our community is paramount.
The COVID-19 outbreak has required the integration of additional measures, and continual assessment to avoid transmission the virus in the training and competitive environments within Canada and abroad. Alpine Canada recognizes the importance of maintaining the safety and health of everyone involved in alpine, para-alpine and ski cross training and competition including the athletes, coaches, staff, IST, and contractors.
Alpine Canada has created this document to support the development of return to sport planning for alpine, para-alpine and ski cross training and racing. This document can serve as a guide to setting up a return to sport plan utilizing the R-SAT risk assessment and mitigation checklist tool. Using these tools, sport organizations can assess the risk in their return to sport plans and protocols in specific sport participation environments.
