COVID-19 Update - January 11, 2022
Red Deer Nordic is taking recommendations from our Governing Sport Body, Nordiq Alberta. Below are the current recommendations for our club participation;
RDN feels very fortunate to be planning a season this year while many other sports have had disruptions to their training and fun. We truly do not want to take this for granted and it is our hope that we can run our program safely this season! Here are a few key things to keep in mind with the new and changing COVID-19 policies.
As we take direction from AHS and Nordiq Alberta, we ask that:
You and your family continue to self-screen and complete the daily health checklists from AHS before coming to practice. If you are sick, please stay home.
All children, parents, and coaches wear masks when in common areas and where it is not possible to maintain a 2m distance. This includes the parking lot when unloading and loading gear. The parking lot is often a congested area during practice nights.
We are looking for ways to build our Jackrabbit community while doing our part to adhere to the guidelines. Thank you for keeping this at the top of mind as we keep the socializing before and after practices safe, distanced, and short. As a ski club, RDN does not want to take advantage of the privilege we have to be able to run a program this year while other programs have been paused or canceled. All parents are welcome to ski with their child as we’ll be physically distanced on skis. Thank you in advance for your help! It is already greatly appreciated especially with the younger skiers under the age of 8. If you are not on skis, we ask that parents stay off the groomed skiing area but near enough to help your child if they are cold or have to go to the bathroom. Older skiers over the age of 8 can ski on their own but you MUST make sure they are with their coaching instructors before you leave. If you are late and cannot find your coach, your child(ren) cannot ski that night
