Team Hardwood takes the safety of our athletes, coaches and families very seriously and our Program offerings are tailored to conform to the guidelines provided by Public Health authorities and our governing sports bodies, Nordiq Canada and Cross-Country Ski Ontario. We successfully operated a summer dryland training program in accordance with all COVID-19 guidelines and will continue to ensure we prioritize the safety of the Team Hardwood family as we transition to our Fall/Winter Programs.
Now that vaccinations are available for everyone, Team Hardwood mandates that all athletes, coaches and anyone else working in a volunteer capacity be fully vaccinated (which is defined as two doses of a vaccine) to take part in all Team Hardwood training sessions, social activities and races, as well as disclose their vaccination status. We also encourage everyone to stay up to date with recommended booster does when eligible.
COVID Protocols for dealing with positive cases, contacts with positive cases and returning to training will adhere to the current provincial public health guidelines.
