viaSport and Province of B.C.

To all BC Alpine members and clubs:

The Provincial Government has requested that viaSport (BC Alpine’s link to government) develop a framework that supports a Return-to-Sport plan for all organized sport. Being that all sports are different, early indications note that the framework will be wide, phased-in, and must comply with any restrictions the health authorities have in place, both now and as they are adjusted over time.

ViaSport’s Sport Framework will require approval from the government. Each sport (Provincial Sport Organization) will then need to develop its own Return-to-Sport plan that fits within viaSport’s Framework and adheres to the health authorities’ requirements. Our individual sport plan will also require approval from the Government through ViaSport before it can be shared with BC Alpine member clubs.

We will publish timelines as we get more information and will develop BC Alpine’s plan as soon as we get the framework from ViaSport.

Stay safe and healthy!
