Cross Country Ski Ontario has made the difficult decision to cancel our 2021 Ontario Cup Series and Youth Championships due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and uncertainty regarding travel restrictions. We know our community will be both disappointed and understanding given the gravity of our current situation with respect to the pandemic. We are working towards ‘stay at home’ racing and skiing challenges for our clubs & teams to engage with fun and enthusiasm. Our sport is well positioned given it’s outdoor nature and our strong protocols in place to guide competition and participation.
Here is a snapshot of our plans. XCSO will be reaching out through staff, our Board and Committees to engage clubs and teams in making the 2020/2021 season a memorable one based on what WE CAN DO.
Goal: Get all clubs/teams engaged in competition weekends throughout the winter in lieu of OCUPs and Youth Champs. A place for clubs to focus on the PROCESS of racing and a race weekend.
Goal: Engage everyone in the club to record their km and ski as much as possible over the course of the season
Goal: Engage the ski community in a challenge to work on speed in both sprint (or short) and distance. Clubs will provide a sprint course and a distance course and people will challenge themselves over the winter.
Stay tuned for more details.
