viaSport is leading the creation of a set of guidelines on how to resume sport while operating safely during this pandemic – the Return to Sport Guidelines.

As per viaSport's website:

Return to sport process for amateur sport

As outlined in B.C.’s Restart Plan, during Phase Two sport activities organized and operated by Provincial Sport Organizations (PSOs) and Disability Sport Organizations (DSOs) can resume in a limited way.

1.    Once the sector Return to Sport Guidelines are released, PSOs and DSOs will develop sport-specific return to sport guidelines. These sport-specific guidelines need to be approved by their respective Boards of Directors before any activities can resume.

2.    In order to assess all of the possible risks, PSOs and DSOs should understand their current insurance policy in relation to contagion coverage.

3.    Local Sport Organizations (LSOs), affiliated with a PSO or DSO, will adapt and/or adopt the approved PSO guidelines when creating their own guidelines, and it is recommended to have these approved by their own boards before resuming activities.

4.    In order to assess all of the possible risks, LSOs should understand their current insurance policy in relation to contagion coverage.

For the foreseeable future, sport will be more geared towards community participation and training rather than games and provincial competition. Further information will be shared once it becomes available.
