Sport is returning to British Columbia in accordance with the phases outlined in B.C.’s Restart Plan. At the request of the Province of B.C., viaSport has led the creation of a set of guidelines on how to resume sport while operating safely during this pandemic. 

viaSport is hosting a webinar open to all – municipal and recreation leaders, local sport organizations, facility operators, community stakeholders and interested parents on Thursday, June 4, 2020 at 1:30 pm.

Jared Kope and Heather Beatty, viaSport Return to Sport leaders will:

  • outline how sport will return to your community in a phased approach during the pandemic
