Posted by Kat Coatesworth on Mar 13 2020 at 12:06PM PDT

Due to concerns about the global spread of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) the BCSSA Board has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 BCSSA Coaches Conference. All those who have already registered will be issued full refunds as soon as possible.

Board President Danny Schilds commented today, “First and foremost is the safety of the community, the athletes and their families. We continue to monitor this rapidly changing situation and will be looking at alternative means of supporting coach education and development in BC.”

The BCSSA will continue to monitor the Provincial Health Authorities for guidance on activities and events, and will provide updates. The Regional Page will continue to share as much information as possible and please also continue to check the BCSSA website at for news and communications on an ongoing basis.

Ross is proactively working with each team in our Region to undertake risk assessments and develop potential mitigation plans for holding Meets to look out for the well being of all of our membership and still leave opportunities open for our children.
