Step 2 of the Restart Plan is in effect as of June 15th

Major confirmed changes included in this update are:

For any sport activity:

  • Travel for sport is aligned with recreational travel and is allowed within B.C.
  • Games and practices for both adults and youth group/team sports are allowed.
  • Physical distance is not required on field of play (i.e. contact is allowed). Off field of play, physical distance of 2 meters must be maintained.
  • Safety plans: To simplify the process, adjust your current safety plans with Step 2 of B.C.’s Restart plan in mind. 
  • Please remember, the intention of the restart is to slowly return to activities. We are asking clubs to "turn the dimmer up slowly" when planning activies.

Outdoor sport activities:

  • For childrend and youth (under 22 years of age) as well as CSI-P identified athletes there is no maximum group size.
  • For adults a maximum group size of 50 is allowed. That 50-person count includes participants, coaches, managers, trainers and other persons involved in an official capacity.
  • Up to 50 spectators allowed.
  • Masks not required.

Indoor sport activities:

  • A maximum group size of 50 is allowed regardless of age. That 50-person count includes participants, coaches, managers, trainers and other persons involved in an official capacity.
  • No spectators permitted.
  • On field of play: no masks required.
  • Off field of play: masks required.
