COVID-19 Event Updates

COVID-19 EVENT UPDATES

Updated: July 19th, 2020

As we continue to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and each province moves into various phases of “re-opening”, I think we can all agree there is still much uncertainty. We would like to assure you that the safety of our participants, volunteers, staff and spectators remains a priority.

NEW FORMAT
Our events have taken on a new format with strict protocol to accommodate and respect the health and safety of others during the COVID-19 situation. New Event Format

EVENT STATUS
The COVID-19 challenges have been real and nobody would have predicted how severe it would affect not only our everyday lives, but our Femsport events as well.

In the beginning, we truly thought that we would be able to move forward with our events with only a few speed-bumps along the way. Those speed-bumps have now become extreme obstacles that we are having difficulty overcoming, but we are doing our best. However, some of our events have needed to be rescheduled or cancelled.

Here is the current Event Status:

  • Kamloops, BC (May 28, 2020) – CANCELLED
  • Calgary, AB (June 20, 2020) – RESCHEDULED….August 22nd, 2020
  • Spruce Grove, AB (July 18, 2020) – COMBINED with Calgary…August 22nd, 2020
  • Moose Jaw, SK (August 8, 2020) – CANCELLED
  • Vancouver, BC (September 12, 2020) – CONFIRMED

If an event is postponed/rescheduled your entry will automatically be transferred to the rescheduled date.

If an event is cancelled your entry will be automatically transferred to next year (2021).

UNABLE TO PARTICIPATE
If athletes are unable to, or choose not to participate because of COVID-19 you must let us know via our online “Transfer/Cancel Registration Form” before event date. We have set up some options:

  • Transferable entry to another event.
    You can transfer your entry to any event taking place either this year (2020)
    or any year after.
  • Transferable entry to another un-registered athlete.
    If you know of someone who has not yet registered and would like to take your place, you can have them pay you directly for that event. Your substitute can simply complete the online entry form which has a section that asks…”Are you replacing a pre-registered athlete?” When they answer “Yes” the form will then ask…”Who are you replacing?” and then their entry fee will be waived.
  • None of the Above
    Your entry fee will contribute to rebuilding the Femsport community.

Please complete the online “Transfer/Cancel Registration Form” and we will take care of the rest.

DISCOUNTED ENTRY FEE
Entry fees have been reduced to $89 + GST for all participants. Those who have already registered will receive a refund for the difference of original entry fee paid.

Let’s work together, support each other and stay healthy. In the meantime if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Nancy at [email protected]
