Now that climbing facilities are opened all through Canada, athletes and coaches are understandably anxious to return to training. Climbing Escalade Canada (CEC) is committed to the health and safety of its participants, athletes, coaches, and members. As the COVID-19 response varies from location to location, there can be no standard approach that applies to all Provinces, climbing facilities, club teams and coaches.
CEC has developed the “CEC Return To Climb Guidelines – Supporting Athletes and Coaches in their Return to Training plan” as a tool to assist in developing a responsible return to programming.
These guidelines should never be interpreted as superseding or providing a justification for not closely following public health directives, government regulations or further climbing specific or general return to sport guidelines in a given member organization’s municipality/province/territory.
Additional COVID-related resources can be found on the CEC Website: http://climbingcanada.ca/en/covid-19-resources/
Coaches and athletes should expect the CEC Return to Competition Plan by October.
