Athletes are reminded that in order to train with the Royals, reactivation of their BC Athletics Membership is required by completing the Athletics Canada Waiver/Attestation Form. Athletes who don’t complete the waiver ahead of practice will not be allowed to train. New athletes will be given their personal link to the Online form by the club administrator after they register for their club membership. Didn’t receive/have deleted the waiver email from BC Athletics? Email Christa at [email protected] to request another
At this stage in getting “Back on Track” athletes will be training using the club’s Safety Plan. Athletes may be competing at select meets as BC Athletics has begun to sanction meets again according to “Back to Training” and “Back to Competition” Guidelines & Addendums
Due to insurance rules, all athletes must have a paid Valley Royals Membership to participate with a Royals training group. A $20 one-week trial membership is available for athletes new to the Royals and wanting to check out a training group before buying the full membership.
