Skill Development Program (SDP) Vaccination Guidance

The Cross Country Ski Ontario Board of Directors passed the following motion regarding Skill Development Program leaders, coaches and volunteers.

Cross-Country Ski Ontario (XCSO) continues to encourage its member clubs to diligently follow the government of Ontario and local public health guidelines in the delivery of their programming. With our youngest members newly eligible for vaccination, XCSO recommends that all coaches, program leaders, volunteers and athletes be vaccinated against COVID-19, and that clubs remain diligent with physical distancing, masking when 2 metres cannot be maintained, hand hygiene, and to follow existing mask and vaccine mandates for indoor spaces. Furthermore, all clubs should develop contingency plans in the event any program leader or volunteer contracts COVID-19, or public health guidelines change in order to minimize the effect on program delivery. XCSO also recommends that clubs ensure that all eligible athletes, coaches, volunteers and parents be vaccinated against COVID-19 for team travel to out-of-town events.
