We hope all of our members, volunteers and athletes continue to stay healthy and safe, as our summer is coming to a close. With school resuming in early September, there will continue to be uncertainty and we are all asked to be flexible and adaptable, as our health officials evaluate what is best for our community and it’s people. Your understanding and support is extra critical during this time.
As you are aware, Burnaby Striders started back up it’s training on July 20, 2020 and we’ve been running right through with a record number of athletes turning out. This is extremely encouraging to see, that many still want to maintain active exercise while doing so in a responsible manner.
A reminder that we will have our Burnaby Central track facility available for training up until Thursday, October 1, 2020. Thereafter, the City of Burnaby has not given any further approvals yet on training extensions. Traditionally, Burnaby Striders transitions into our indoor facility at Burnaby South Secondary school for the Fall & Winter months. But at this time, we have not received any confirmation yet.
For the time being, we encourage you to continue showing up to our practices at Central until October 1st. Thereafter, we will be sure to keep you posted on any updates and developments on when our Fall/Winter training can restart. The safety of our athletes is our utmost priority.
Thank you and please continue to stay safe!
Practices are held Monday-Thursday from 6:00 – 8:30pm at Burnaby Central (6011 Deer Lake Pkwy, Burnaby, BC) until Thursday, October 1, 2020
