A Message from: Jane D. Blaine, Executive Director
Subject: Programing and Contact Information During the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic
Dear Members, Participants, Supporters, and Partners:
All of us at BC Blind Sports and Recreation Association hope that you are staying well and healthy, practicing physical distancing, and following all of the guidelines and regulations set by the provincial and national health authorities. We are open in a remote way while our Joyce Street office is closed – so we are still here to support you in being physically active.
At this time all of our regular programming has been suspended due to the stay at home orders. We are taking measures to implement some online programs to help our members and other British Columbians who are blind, visually impaired, or deaf blind, keep active at home. Staff are currently working remotely to keep communication open, and develop alternative online services where possible.
BC Blind Sports will be providing some ideas of activities that can be done around your home, which will support you in building your physical literacy and movement skills. Check our website to find out what you can do to continue developing your physical skills. We will include information on:
- activities for you to try
- how to adapt equipment that will be useful and affordable
We also hope that you will share your ideas with us, and we will review them. We will have new updates on our website every Monday. The first posting is up already at www.bcblindsports.bc.ca
Please also check with us if you have specific questions or want additional information – we are here to help you remain active as best as you can.
Our staff are monitoring phone calls and emails at this time. Please use the following contact information if you are not sure who to contact:
You may be asked to leave a message. Please indicate who you would like to speak to, if you know, or leave a detailed message and one of us will get back to you within three business days.
Please use this general email address if you do not already know who to contact, or do not have their email address. State the nature of your enquiry and one of us will get back to you.
Please stay healthy, well, and safe; and feel free to reach out to us with your physical activity questions.
