Return to Play Plan

BC Archery regards the health, safety and well-being of our participants (archers, coaches, officials and volunteers) as our highest priority.

Under the guidance of the BC Government and viaSport, a Return to Play plan has been created to assist with the safe reopening of archery activity in the Province. In addition, a workbook has been created to help club administrators develop plans for their specific venues and activities.

It is a BC Provincial Health Office REQUIREMENT that ALL facilities post their plan PRIOR to (re)opening. This is not a suggestion or a recommendation, it is MANDATORY. Whether you have a formal club that meets on specific days, or you have an open range where people can attend when they want, a Plan is still REQUIRED. Failure to do so puts your operation in jeopardy (and potentially your insurance). The saying cannot be more true than in this situation: if you fail to Plan, you plan to fail.

When reviewing the documentation provided by viaSport (Guidelines, FAQs, etc) you must disregard all mentions of "cohorts". Archery does not utilize cohorts; these sections do not apply to our sport.
