BC Wheelchair Basketball has updated our Return to Sport plan as of January 18th.
In order to align with the Government of BC’s guidelines and incorporating the PHO order and new BC Vaccine Card requirements BCWBS will be implementing the following policy:
All people, age 12 and upwards who are eligible to be vaccinated and who are taking part in BCWBS programs/events and BCWBS club programs/practices
– must show proof of vaccination before taking part in these programs/events and practices.This includes participants, athletes, coaches, staff, officials, and volunteers.
BCWBS policy requires all parents and spectators to wear a mask at all times and show proof of vaccination whil in the gymnasium. Please be advised that facilities may enforce their own requirements above and beyond BCWBS policy.
Wearing a mask, while not required when exercising and playing wheelchair basketball, it is highly recommended in order to keep everyone (including staff and their families) as safe as possible.
Masks continue to be required to be worn when not on the court.
Thank you for your continued dedication to safe programs.
Please see details and updated documents:
We have endeavoured to make the recording of this information as streamlined as possible for all, especially the Club leaders.
We will also be circulating and publishing the amended RTP polices.
We know this may have some challenges for some of our members and participants and will discuss these on an individual basis.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to email the committee
Please note, that BC Public Health Orders supersede any BC Wheelchair Basketball Society Return to Sport policies.
If you would like further clarification, please email Marni to set up a time to discuss.
Thank you for your patience and we hope everyone stays healthy and safe in their own communities.
