BTSC Vaccination status Update

BTSC Marketing

BTSC members and families,

We are so excited to kick off the 2021-22 competitive season as of Monday September 13th and I wanted to connect to provide updates regarding vaccination status, timelines and proof of vaccination for our athletes.
As you will have read from our member communications sent September 4th, per provincial directives   all BTSC member athletes who are eligible for the Covid 19 vaccine must provide proof of vaccination to enter City of Barrie Recreation and YMCA recreation facilities.    This pertains to all eligible athletes who are in their 12th year of age or older. 
As of today, we do not have additional provincial guidance to assist in meeting this directive.  The BTSC has continued to be in ready consultation with our City of Barrie and YMCA recreation and aquatic partners and we will implement the following policy, and amend as needed as clarifying guidance  becomes available from the province:
In order to gain access to the YMCA and City of Barrie recreation facilities and train with the Club, all BTSC members who will be age 12 or older by December 31, 2021 will be required to:
1. Provide proof of dose #1 of their Covid 19 vaccination which has been administered by September 30, 2021.
2. Provide proof of dose #2 of the Covid 19 vaccination, administered by November 15, 2021.
3. BTSC athletes are able to download or print copies of their vaccine certificates from to then show upon entering City of Barrie and YMCA recreation facilities.
We will be opening our 2021-22 competitive season with the safety of our athletes, staff and community partners as our top priority and we want to thank each of you for your commitment to this.
Please don't hesitate to connect with myself or any member of the board should you have any questions.
