Athletics Alberta has reviewed the current situation as it relates to the Covid-19 virus and pandemic and has issued the following statement to all Alberta athletics clubs:
In response to the Covid-19 pandemic Athletics Alberta is requiring all of its member clubs to cease operations as of today through April 6th, 2020. At that time Athletics Alberta will re-assess the status of Covid-19 as it relates to our sport.
We are therefore suspending all practices effective immediately.
Coaches will coordinate with athletes to give athletes workouts that they can do on their own. If you are a Spartan athlete, please stay in touch with your coach.
We are in an unprecedented situation – we know it will pass, but it will take time, and a great deal of commitment from many people to keep people safe, healthy, and for those who contract the virus to recover. We’d like our athletes to keep training on their own, stay in touch with your coaches, remain positive and healthy, and we will resume training as soon as we can. We hope to pick up training in outdoor season. We will advise as soon as – and whenever we know more.
