Vaccination Requirement Ages 12+ Step




The health and safety of our students, their families, and our staff are at the forefront of every decision we are making at this time.   As we return to training after the disruption of the COVID-19 outbreak, every decision, policy, and procedure are made keeping all of the below as our guide:

Safety

Caring 

High Five 

Entertainment

Innovative Systems

Everything about this disease, its spread, government guidelines, social responses, the needs of our families, and the economic impact has been in constant change. Our plans and procedures for how we address these issues must be adaptable. We will constantly evaluate our policies and procedures, and adjust our responses accordingly.

We will do everything we can to meet and exceed, provincial, federal, and our sport’s governing bodies guidelines, while also minimizing interruption of ‘normal life’ as much as possible. We understand that certain solutions and policies will not be the most appropriate for each family. While we try our best to create the optimum environment for everyone to safely participate, we of course will respect those families who have had to make the difficult decision to delay their return.

Given the above statements, and in the interest of protecting the health and safety of our students entrusted to our care, their families, and our staff, we will be enforcing all policies and procedures listed within Protocols. If a student, their family, or a staff member is unwilling to abide by these policies and procedures they will not be allowed to participate until their willingness to do so has changed.
