Covid-19 Update

We are all well aware that the impacts of the COVID-19 Pandemic have been felt near and far by every amateur athlete in Canada and while we enter our 3rd month of COVID closures we are starting to get a clearer picture of what the 2021 season may or may not look like. We are focused on the things we can control at this time, working with our stakeholders and creating return to activity and sport protocols for all of our high performance teams and clubs. As information continues to change daily at the municipal, provincial and federal level, our plans will need to be nimble, flexible, aligned and in the best interest of our athletes and coaches.

The most critical priority for AOA is getting our community back to training and racing in the most prudent way possible

while keeping the focus on the health and safety of our athletes. The stakeholder group that comprises advises AOA is full of experts from various fields and the sectors that they represent will ensure our successful return to fitness training centres and ski clubs across the province. AOA is in continuous discussions and information sessions with government agencies at all levels including the Ministry of Heritage, Sport, Tourism and Culture Industries, the Canadian Sport Institute of Ontario, the Canadian Olympic Committee, Own the Podium, Sport Canada, Alpine Canada Alpin, Canadian Snowsports Association and the Ontario Ski Resort Association just to name a few. All of these stakeholders input, regulations and procedures will be utilized by AOA to build a best practice document for the specific needs of our sport in Ontario – a solution that works best for our community all while ensuring the safest and healthiest environment for all.
