JDFSC Members RE: Spring School Update
"With the direction of the City of Langford in regards to the global pandemic of the COVID-19 virus, for public health and safety precautions, City Centre Park (Westhills Arena) is closed until further notice. "
As a result of this new posting the JDFSC received late this afternoon, we have made the decision to cancel Spring School and refund all registrations already posted. These registration refunds will be processed by April 1, 2020.
The JDFSC will continue to post information on the club website that affect any changes to our programs in the near future. The JDFSC AGM will be postponed until summer and the new date, time and place will be posted and also sent out at a later date.
A revised spring school schedule will be posted if and when the health authorities allow arena facilities to open.
We are intending for our summer skating sessions to operate as planned as long as the global crisis is over. The tentative schedule will be posted in these next few days so that you may plan afternoon days camps following the skating times.
The health and safety of our JDFSC members, skaters, coaches, volunteers and our community is most important in our our decisions moving forward with this global situation.
Thank you for your understanding and patience.
Please stay safe and healthy!
Due to the closure of the Westshore Parks and Recreation, JDF Skating Club has cancelled the remaining Winter 2020 skating sessions at Juan de Fuca Arena.
We are also cancelling our Year End Awards Presentation and Showcase on Sunday March 29th.
We will continue to post updated information here on the website for our members.
Thank you for your understanding and for your support.
A message from Skate Canada RE: COVID-19 Off Ice Programming Clarification

Dear Coaches and Clubs,
We have received many questions regarding off ice classes taking place while Skate Canada has suspended all programming.
Under no circumstance are any in person off ice classes permitted to take place. Any in person off ice classes will not be covered by insurance and also goes against the Skate Canada suspension of programming.
Online or live streamed off ice programming can take place as they follow social distancing and other guidelines emphasized by the provincial and federal governments and local public health authorities.

A Message from Skate Canada
Dear members and registrants,
Skate Canada has been closely monitoring the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) situation, and we would like to reaffirm the health and safety of all our members and registrants is of paramount importance. As a national sport organization, we remain committed to ensuring a safe environment for all participants.
As the global situation surrounding COVID-19 changes daily, our skating community is reaching out with questions and concerns. Skate Canada looks to the Public Health Agency of Canada, along with other public health agencies, for guidance as we look to maintain the health and safety of our skaters, coaches, volunteers, support staff and officials.
Domestic activities and events at Skate Canada clubs and skating schools continue to run as normal.
However, we urge our skating community to follow the precautions outlined by the Public Health Agency of Canada and their local venue operators, as well as provincial and municipal governments.
Recommendations for all Skate Canada participants:
If you are sick or have any symptoms of respiratory illness such as fever, cough or difficulty breathing, please stay at home and do not attend any Skate Canada activities, consult with your physician or public heath authorities and follow their instructions. Limit contact with others and avoid interaction with individuals who are ill.
Proper hygiene can help reduce the risk of infection or spreading infection to others. Please use the following precautions:
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after using the washroom and when preparing food. Use alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
Cough or sneeze into a tissue or the bend of your arm, not your hand. Dispose of any tissues you have used as soon as possible in a lined waste basket and wash your hands afterwards.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.
Clean high-touch surfaces frequently with regular household cleaners or diluted bleach (a 9/1 water-to-bleach ratio is recommended)
Avoid physical contact and getting too close to others, including shaking hands and hugging.
If you are a healthy individual, the use of a mask is not recommended for preventing the spread of COVID-19.
As the situation is changing day by day, we continue to closely monitor new developments of COVID-19, in cooperation with the appropriate health authorities. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1-888-747-2372 ext: 703.
