BATAWA SKI RACING CLUB COVID-19 OPERATING PROTOCOLS – WHAT TO EXPECT THIS UPCOMING SEASON WHEN YOU ARRIVE AT BATAWA SKI HILL.
BSRC has established a 5 step plan as part of our operating protocols. They include Racer Self Screening, On-Site Screening, Contact Tracing, Notification of Results and Operating Safely. Below are the protocols being required of our racers and member families in order to safely participate in our ski racing program.
Step 1: Self Screen. On the day of a practice or race, at their residence, each family will be required to self-screen their racer as well as the person transporting the racer to the facility where the activity is occurring. Before leaving your residence, please use this link for our self screening tool:
or you can follow the COVID-19 online screening tool provided here:
Step 2: On-Site Screening/Attendance. When you and your racer arrive at Batawa Ski Hill or a BSRC/AOA event, you must proceed directly to the dedicated ski racer meeting area and maintain social distancing. Your Team Manager or other assigned person will ask your racer some screening questions and record your attendance. Please note, this person will be required to make a determination if you are permitted to participate based on your answers to these questions.
Step 3: Submission of Attendance, Results and Lift Tickets: The on-site screener will take the results of the racer attendance and screening results into the BSH chalet and report those results to BSH and obtain the necessary lift tickets for that training session or event. Those will be distributed to the racers in the racer meeting area.
Step 4: Notification of results: In the event of a failed screening, the racer will not be permitted to participate for that practice or event.
Step 5: Operating Safely: During training sessions or races, BSRC will follow the COVID-19 measures outlined in the Alpine Ontario Return to Sport Plan included earlier on this web page. For reference, those items are specifically referred to in parts 2 and 3 of this document:
