RETURN TO SPORT
Return to Sport/Activity
December 4th - Return to Play Update -
At this time goalball, hockey and tennis have been suspended until we get further notice from the Provincial Health authorities to start up again.
All programs require you to register with a staff person at BC Blind Sports prior to attending a program.
Please also note that the current recommendation for physical activity is to stay three (3) meters physical distance from anyone else during physical activity. Current provincial orders are that no in person group physical activities are to be offered for adults. Please contact us about checking out our virtual activities. There are also activities for all age groups to try available on our website.
For information on when in person programs will start up again, what you need to know to participate or how to register in any of these sports, please contact Mike Lonergan at the office 604-325-8638 or email him at email@example.com and he will give you the details you need to get back in the game. Information on return to sport is also available on our website.
We are pleased to present the following documents regarding our response to the COVID-19 Pandemic:
•Return to Sport Plan for BC Blind Sports
This document includes our return
to sport and program plans. It outlines some of the ways return to
sport may be different than return to other activities and what permissions
will need to be in place. We also have included information about the
impact of COVID-19 on athletes and participants who are blind or partially
sighted as well as information on modified guiding and instruction techniques
which can be used for physical activity. We encourage other provincial
sport organizations who have athletes who are blind or partially sighted
to consider use of these modified guiding and instruction techniques,
and we would be pleased to support you in personalizing this by sport
and individual athlete. Each individual and organization using this plan
should consider their own situation and the inherent risks of sport involvement
in making their decision to return to sport – and what that looks
like for them. This document applies to all of our programs.
•Return to Work Plan
This document outlines our
return to work plan, including how members or the public would visit
if needed. This document applies to all of our programs and covers staff
as well as volunteers. Please note that our office remains at the Joyce
Street location and we would not be moving until early in 2021, however
staff are still working partially remotely so please do not drop in un-announced.

to goalball plan. It will be used in conjunction with the above Return
