2021 Winter Training

On Saturday, January 16th, we will be skiing.  Athletes should be aware that, due to Ontario’s lockdown situation, athletes will be divided up into groups of five or fewer, including the coach. Coaches will strictly enforce the 2-meter rule.  We are continuing to operate under the following provincial provisions:

  • Outdoor recreational amenities permitted to open include parks and recreational areas
  • Outdoor organized public gatherings and social gatherings are restricted to a limit of five people with limited exceptions

Additionally, in order for our outdoor workouts to fully comply with Ottawa Public Health’s new regional restrictions, we are taking the following precautions:

  • Our meeting place is now the Roy Hobbes Centre soccer field, giving us more space for social distancing
  • Athletes are divided into five distinct groups, of no more than 5 people each, including the coach
  • Each group has its own space and (staggered) meeting time
  • Athletes will remain in his/her own assigned space prior to/after each workout
  • Athletes will be required to wear a neckwarmer, buff, scarf, or other similar neck covering, which they will use to cover their face when gathering before/after workouts, when passing others on the trails, or any time they are within 5 meters of another person
