Updated September 9, 2021
The Lethbridge Skating Club will follow all COVID-19 related protocol and guidance documents outlined by: Skate Canada, Skate Canada: Alberta-NWT/Nunavut, Government of Canada, Province of Alberta, and the City of Lethbridge. Where there is a discrepancy in the protocol/policies, the stricter protocol will take precedent. Please note that these protocols are subject to change at any time.
- All skaters must complete a COVID-19 Assumption of Risk & Waiver Form upon registration once per skating season.
- The LSC Board of Directors & Coaches must ensure the Rapid Response Plan and all government and facility regulations are being adhered to and that proper PPE is available and utilized.
- If skaters exhibit COVID-19 symptoms (fever, cough, difficulty breathing), they must not participate in their programming.
- Prior to every session, skaters and coaches must complete an online health screening and contact tracing log. You can do this by scanning the QR Code posted in the arena lobby. Overall results will be recorded and kept on file for 4 weeks.
- All individuals older than 2 and those who do not have a medical exemption must wear a mask in our facilities. Skaters are not required or recommended to wear a face mask while on the ice; they may choose to do so, however Public Health recommends that masks should NOT by worn when conducting intense physical activities.
- It is strongly recommended that face masks are worn by coaches on the ice surface when physical distancing is not feasible or when coaching Pre-CanSkate, CanSkate, and lower level STAR group programs.
- We encourage sanitization upon arrival, and ask that you follow posted signage.
- The use of dressing rooms is permitted, and lockers are open.
- Parents/Guardians are allowed inside the arena to help their children get ready and to watch them skate. We still encourage skaters to arrive ice-ready to limit the time they spend in the dressing rooms.
- There are no requirements for participants to provide proof of vaccination to engage in our programming or any competitions, courses, and workshops held by our Alberta Section.
