2021 Practice Session Bookings & Protocols

UPDATED May 26 2021 – The following information has been updated to reflect current guidelines and approved sanctioning. Information will be updated as it changes as required.

The Globe BMX team has reviewed all current policies and recommendations put forth by the Government of SK as well as the Saskatchewan Cycling Association. Below you will find revised detailed plans that outline our updated practice format.

FORMAT OVERVIEW & SESSION SIZE

  • Two groups of 50 riders (more spots in each group will be added if needed). Groups are purely from a coaching management perspective, no age limits or restrictions in each group.
  • Striders welcome in either group, no strider coaching
  • Signup required for contact tracing
  • Coaching broken into potential smaller groups per session if coaching availability arises

TRACK SETUP

  • Parents still need to remain socially distanced from each other while arriving, helping their riders (especially if helping in the gate) and while spectating.
  • Registration check in will be contactless and maintain distancing
  • Registration check in will be positioned so that as riders/parents arrive at the entrance of the track, riders can be positioned for briefing and parents can be directed to spectating/gear area section.
  • First Aid will have a standard kit with first aid supplies, that will also consist of gloves, mask and sanitizer.
  • Volunteers during practice will consist of Check In, Gate Operator, First Aid & Coaches. Track safety optional.

SUNDAY – COACHING SESSION TIMES:

  • 1:00pm – 2:00pm
