Skate Canada advice on H1N1

Filed under: Announcements — admin @ 2:23 am

There has been a lot of news lately on the best prevention and treatment against H1N1 Infection but unlike other medical conditions, the information is changing quickly and often conflicting from week to week. It is sometimes difficult to know what is true and what to do!

Currently, Skate Canada is advising that all clubs increase member awareness of proper hygiene to reduce the transmission of respiratory infections like H1N1 and seasonal flu. We are not recommending any additional measures such as infection surveillance or enforcement of cancellations of lessons, competitions or social events at this time.  If these Skate Canada recommendations change based on government notification, we will issue another communication to keep you up to date.

We encourage you to post the information we have included below at your club.

Technical package updated

Filed under: Announcements,Competitions — admin @ 3:03 pm

The updated technical package for this year is now on-line, containing eligibilities for the triathlon categories at Provincials, and the Newfoundland & Labrador Winter Games. These modifications were approved by the Board at the September meeting. It was decided to retain the triathlon categories at Provincials using the same test criteria as last year. Decisions on the categories to be skated at Winter Games were constrained by a limitation on maximum team size for each zone, a requirement that competitors must be 11 years old as of the opening day of the games, and that at least 5 zones (women) and 3 zones (men) must be represented for a category to be skated. Any questions on these revisions should be directed to the chair of the technical advisory committee, Dave Liverman.
