Track and Field Club announces cancellations
The East Kootenay Track and Field Club today informed athletes, board members and parents about a series of cancellations.
it is with great sadness due to the COVID-19 virus and the required social distancing requirements we are cancelling the following:
- No track practices until further notice.
- No registrations will be accepted until further notice.
- Wolf Pack track meet and BC Summer Games Trials scheduled for June 13th cancelled.
- Summer Games cancelled in Maple Ridge July 23-26.
We will maintain a strong status with BC Athletics and the College of the Rockies and follow any directives that limit or permit a return to some level of training for the 2020 track season.
At present BC Athletics does not permit any face-to- face coaching, nor is it a responsible approach at this time.
If there is any chance down the road this year to have practices in the fall, we will post it on our Facebook page.
It is unlikely at this time that any track meets will be held over summer but we look to maintain and improve our athletes’ fitness and enthusiasm for track and field; as such, our coaches are prepared to provide guidance via our Facebook for those who want to continue training alone.
We look forward to having our track family back soon! Please continue social distancing, other lives may depend on it.
