COVID-19 Health Declarations

Dear Richmond Rockets Skaters and Families,

Thank you for your patience as we try to work out the “New Normal” operating routines for the Richmond Rockets Speed Skating Club (RRSSC). It’s been quite a challenge to meet the COVID-19 safety policies of the Richmond Olympic Oval, BC Speed Skating Association, ViaSport and the Public Health Officer.  Ensuring the health and well-being of all our club members, our coaches and our volunteer staff while returning to speed skating is important to us.

At this time, RRSSC has decided that the best way to perform the daily COVID-19 Health Declarations prior to a Richmond Rockets practice session is to use the Health Declaration on the Richmond Rockets Website.

RRSSC has found that making the health declaration on the Rockets website is the easiest way for the club to communicate attendance and health of our skaters to the Richmond Olympic Oval as per the club’s agreement with the Oval to use their facilities. It is also a more secure way of transferring the information without going through multiple volunteers.

Moving forward, please do not use the TeamSnap health declaration. We are currently evaluating how to best use TeamSnap for club communications.

We thank you again for your patience and understanding. Please email if you have any questions.

RRSSC Board of Directors
