With the season just one day away, I'd like to share with you of some AASA policy changes for the season. Some of these will affect your athlete and others may affect you as parents/volunteers. It is a good document and I suggest you all have a read through it as there is plenty of good information in there that touches on all aspects of our sport of ski racing here in Alberta. As a club we will be following all of these rules and policies while hosting club events and on all our training venues.
DRUG FREE SPORT:
All members will abstain from participating in AASA sanctioned events while under the influence of alcohol, tobacco products, cannabis, illegal drugs, or prescription drugs when such prescription drugs might impact the member’s performance and potentially risk the health and safety of the member and other participants attending the AASA event; this includes within the competition area, spectating areas, awards ceremonies, and offices associated with AASA events. "under the influence" here is defined as zero consumption.
Other notable changes:
Cold Weather Policy
Alberta Alpine Race Levy
Start Order for U12, U14 and U16
No more hiking in SL
Fluorinated wax ban
Please see the full document attached below. I look forward to seeing you all very soon!
