First, and most importantly, to the front-line and essential workers who have gone above and beyond around the clock to keep Canadians safe – a simple thank you is not nearly enough for what you have done over the last Four months.
Second, to our Members, partners, local broomball associations, volunteers, and fans across Canada, thank you for keeping the spirit of broomball alive. Unprecedented times have called for unprecedented efforts at every level of the game.
With governments throughout the country lifting restrictions caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, provincial/territorial Broomball organizations will be working closely and intensively with us Ballon sur glace Broomball Canada to provide their members with a plan and guidelines on what returning to broomball will look like.
Return To Play Plan will be put into action by provincial and territorial broomball organizations once they receive permission from governments and public health officials for associations, teams and athletes to return to the ice to play broomball.
This plan will include everything from health and safety regulations to communications, customer engagement and national teams.
Before returning to play broomball, we encourage all associations, families, athletes, coaches, officials and volunteers to familiarize themselves with the return to play guidelines that will be put in place by provincial/territorial broomball organizations with regards to safe practices before, during and after your time at the arena. We commend all our members who are working and continue to work tirelessly in keeping the health and safety of their members at the forefront while coming up with creative ways to have broomball activities back as soon as possible. We wish the entire Canadian broomball community a “soon” return to play when it is deemed safe to do so.
The health and safety of everyone involved in the game will determine when we return, not our desire to get back on the ice. When our country is ready, Ballon sur glace Broomball Canada will be ready. Until then, continue to follow the guidelines set by your provincial and territorial government to help limit the spread of COVID-19. Only by working together will we be able to make a difference and safely return.
Thank you for your passion and dedication to our game, and we hope to see you around the rink as soon as possible.
