Important Message from Public Health

PUBLIC HEALTH MESSAGE FOR SPORT & RECREATION

Dear MCA Clubs/Members/Partners,

The following information has been received from Public Health and we ask that you please distribute it as widely as possible within your networks, including facilities and community centres.

 People engage in a number of different types of recreational activities on a regular basis.  Public health officials recognize the importance of physical activity in one’s everyday life and want to encourage all Manitobans to find the safest ways to remain physically active during this pandemic. However, the risk of spreading COVID19 in those who participate in recreational activities is a valid concern. 
 
Different sports have different levels of risk.  For example, playing table tennis with someone where physical distancing can be maintained for the entire game likely represents a lower risk activity. Alternatively, a hockey game with ongoing interactions throughout the game would represent a higher risk activity.  Regardless of time, a single interaction of less than two metres/six feet (such as a body check) could potentially lead to the transmission of COVID-19.
 
Please be advised the definition of a close contact that is used in public health includes:
close contact (within two metres/six feet) with a confirmed or probable case someone for 15 minutes or more;

or


has had direct contact with infectious body fluids of a probable or confirmed case regardless of contact time. It is important to note that if a person who tested positive for COVID-19 was involved in a recreational activity during their communicable period, public health investigations would include everyone involved in that event. This includes before, during and after the event, and would involve players, coaches, spectators, officials and anyone else who may be at risk. 
 
Following the risk assessment, public health may determine there was zero risk and there would be no need for anyone to self-isolate (quarantine). Or, the risk assessment could determine that all those involved would be at risk and would have to self-isolate (quarantine) for 14 days.
 
Example
A game is played where physical distancing was practiced before and after the game. However players awaiting their turn to actively participate (sitting on the bench) did not physically distance during the game.  A player subsequently becomes COVID-19 positive and it was determined that during the communicable period they participated in the game.  Public health may deem all those on the COVID-19 positive player’s team, including coaches and affiliated staff, to be close contacts and therefore everyone may have to quarantine.
 
It’s important to note that the use of a mask would not affect the public health investigations. Public health recommends (and sometimes requires) using a mask to help lower the risk of transmission.  But because the science is still evolving, it is not yet known if a mask has more benefit for others or the person wearing the mask. In addition, there is no way to know if someone used their mask properly. This means public health can not be certain that wearing a mask has provided sufficient protection to lower the risk assessment. This doesn’t take away from the advice to wear masks to lower everyone’s risk. 
 
As the risk of COVID-19 can never be zero we must weigh the benefits and risks in participating in recreational activities. Public health officials have made recommendations to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 for those involved in sport. For more information, visit: https://www.gov.mb.ca/asset_library/en/coronavirus/activities-guidelines.pdf
 
These guidelines have been developed to lower the risk of COVID-19 as much as possible, given the risks that will continue to exist in group physical activities.  Following the guidelines is essential to lower everyone’s risk of being infected.  However, even if all guidelines are followed, there may still be times when public health will consider an exposure to be high enough risk that participants will be required to self-isolate (quarantine).
 
For accurate, timely information on COVID-19, you can also visit Manitoba.ca/covid19.

Multi-sport prep – Jan 28

As we prepare for this evening’s program start, we would like to thank you for your registration and pass along the information you’ll need for your first practice.​

Your speed skating coaches Aaron and Mark will be waiting for you in Club Room 2 at the Cindy Klassen Recreation Centre (999 Sargent Ave).  

Please be sure to dress appropriately for the weather – Environment Canada’s current forecast is for -10c temperatures with moderate winds.  

Remember that your child will also need a helmet and gloves for these skating sessions.

Parents can watch in the warmth from the upstairs viewing area.  Or, if you are feeling inspired, let us know we can get some skates for you to try as well!

Thank you on behalf of MCA, MSSA, CCSAM, and TriMB!

CYCLING CANADA EXPANDS VIRTUAL CYCLING OPPORTUNITIES

Cycling Canada Updates Status of Domestic Events - Ontario Cycling  Association

Ottawa, ON (October 28, 2020) – As national federations around the globe continue to gear up for the inaugural UCI Cycling Esports World Championships on December 8-9, Cycling Canada is excited to announce an expanded multi-platform virtual cycling calendar for the 2020/2021 winter season.

“Virtual cycling represents an exciting discipline of the sport which allows our community to stay connected in a virtual world year-round” said Josh Peacock, Events & Partnerships Manager at Cycling Canada. “We are thrilled to play a part in helping to grow this discipline in Canada, while at the same time keeping our growing cycling community connected.”

Cycling Canada’s virtual cycling events will kick off on November 2 on the Zwift platform with the introduction of the Cycling Canada “Weekly Tune-up” group ride series and “Wednesday Night Race Series”. Both initiatives will be listed on the public Zwift event calendar, open to all Zwift subscribers.

Weekly Tune-up Ride

Every Monday and Tuesday at 8:05 p.m. EST, Cycling Canada will host 45 minute group rides open to all skill levels and abilities on rotating courses. Monday rides will be co-ed, while Tuesday rides will be exclusive to women. Course offerings will vary from week to week in an effort to provide a well-rounded mix of training opportunities for Zwifters of all backgrounds. The weekly tune-up will be a medium-paced social ride (2.0 – 2.5 w/kg), led by some of Canada’s top coaches and athletes. Zwifters can expect a fun, interactive community atmosphere with regular efforts to build fitness. The weekly tune-up series will also serve as a social pre-ride for Cycling Canada’s Wednesday Night Race Series, offered on the same course as each week’s ride.

Wednesday Night Race Series

Every Wednesday at 8:05 p.m. EST, Cycling Canada will host a public race open to all skill levels on rotating courses in line with our weekly tune-up rides. This series will offer something for everyone while exploring every corner of Zwift’s virtual world. Zwifters will have the opportunity to register in one of five power-based categories, including a women’s specific category. This series will not include a ranking or series points, but is rather intended as a means of offering a fun weekly challenge for Zwifters of all abilities.

For a complete list of Cycling Canada Zwift events, including course maps, click here. Sign up to participate via the Zwift Companion App, or click here for the complete Zwift event listing.

Canadian Junior Virtual Cycling Series

The Canadian Junior Virtual Cycling Series, which saw great success in spring/summer 2020, will return as an exciting virtual racing opportunity geared towards development athletes in the U17 & Junior age groups. With its introduction on the national calendar in 2020, the series experienced excellent participation amongst some of the country’s top development athletes, and will plan to build on that momentum with a return to the calendar in early 2021. Final details regarding the series and exact dates will be confirmed in the coming months.

National Calendar Courses offered virtually

New for 2021, Cycling Canada will work with various national calendar organizers in conjunction with the Fulgaz virtual cycling platform to produce course previews for 2021 real-life events. On this platform, athletes and recreational riders alike will have the opportunity to preview select race courses utilizing real-life video recordings and elevation data from actual proposed 2021 race routes.

National Virtual Race Series

Catering to the highest level of virtual racing competition, Cycling Canada, in partnership with Broadcast Services International, will produce its first-ever National Virtual Race Series in 2021. The inaugural series will contain a live broadcast component, showcasing the highest level of virtual racing and is set to take place in March 2021.

UCI Cycling Esports World Championships – Cycling Canada Zwift practice events

Zwifters will have the opportunity to join Cycling Canada’s National Esports Team as they prepare for the inaugural UCI Cycling Esports World Championships. Cycling Canada will host three public Zwift races on November 14, 21and 28 respectively featuring members of the Canadian squad. Similar to the Wednesday Night Series, categories will be offered for all skill levels, including a women’s specific category.

As all event information is finalized, be sure to monitor the Cycling Canada Events Webpage and Cycling Canada’s social media for all relevant details.

About Cycling Canada

CYCLISME CANADA ACCROÎT LES POSSIBILITÉS DE CYCLISME VIRTUEL

Ottawa, Ontario (le 28 octobre 2020) Alors que les fédérations nationales autour du monde continuent de se préparer en vue de l’édition inaugurale des Championnats du Monde Cyclisme Esport UCI les 8 et 9 décembre prochains, Cyclisme Canada est heureux d’annoncer l’expansion de son calendrier virtuel multiplateforme en vue de la saison hivernale 2020-2021.

« Le cyclisme virtuel est une discipline palpitante de notre sport qui garde notre communauté branchée dans un monde virtuel à longueur d’année, affirme Josh Peacock, gestionnaire des événements et des partenariats à Cyclisme Canada. Nous sommes emballés de jouer un rôle dans la croissance de la discipline au Canada tout en maintenant un lien avec notre communauté grandissante du cyclisme. »

Les événements virtuels de Cyclisme Canada démarreront le 2 novembre sur la plateforme Zwift avec le lancement de la série de sorties de groupe virtuelles « Mise en forme hebdomadaire » et la « Série de courses du mercredi soir ». Ces deux initiatives figureront au calendrier des événements publics de Zwift, ouverts à tous les abonnés Zwift.

Sorties de mise en forme hebdomadaires

Chaque lundi et mardi à 20:05 h (HE), Cyclisme Canada organisera des sorties de groupe virtuelles de 45 minutes ouvertes aux adeptes de tous les niveaux d’aptitude sur une rotation de parcours. Les sorties du lundi seront mixtes tandis que celles du mardi seront réservées aux femmes. Les parcours varieront d’une semaine à l’autre afin de fournir un mélange diversifié d’occasions d’entraînement aux abonnés Zwift de tous les horizons. Ces rencontres de mise en forme hebdomadaires seront composées de sorties sociales de rythme moyen (2,0 – 2,5 w/kg) menées par les meilleurs entraîneurs et athlètes au pays. Les abonnés Zwift peuvent s’attendre à y trouver une atmosphère communautaire amusante et interactive avec des efforts réguliers visant à bâtir la condition physique des participants. La série de mise en forme hebdomadaire servira aussi de préparation à la Série de courses du mercredi soir, offerte sur le même parcours que la randonnée hebdomadaire de la veille (ou de l’avant-veille).

Série de courses du mercredi soir

Chaque mercredi à 20:05 h (HE), Cyclisme Canada tiendra une course publique ouverte aux participants de tous les niveaux sur les mêmes parcours que les sorties de mise en forme hebdomadaires. Tous les participants trouveront leur compte dans cette série tout en explorant tous les coins du monde virtuel de Zwift. Les abonnés auront l’occasion de s’inscrire dans une des cinq catégories reposant sur la puissance, notamment une catégorie propre aux femmes. Cette série ne comprendra aucun classement et aucun point n’y sera attribué. Cependant, elle a pour but d’offrir un défi hebdomadaire amusant à tous les abonnés Zwift, peu importe leur niveau d’aptitude.

Série canadienne de cyclisme junior virtuel

La Série canadienne de cyclisme junior virtuel, qui a connu beaucoup de succès au printemps et à l’été 2020, sera de retour offrant une occasion emballante de courses virtuelles et ciblant les athlètes de développement de catégories junior et moins de 17 ans. Introduite en 2020 au calendrier national, la série a attiré un nombre impressionnant de participants parmi les meilleurs athlètes de développement au pays et compte bâtir sur cette vague avec un retour au calendrier au début de 2021. Les détails concernant la série et les dates exactes seront confirmés dans les mois à venir.

Parcours du calendrier national offerts en mode virtuel

Cyclisme Canada offrira une nouveauté en 2021 de concert avec les divers organisateurs d’événements du calendrier national et la plateforme de cyclisme virtuel Fulgaz afin de produire un aperçu de parcours des événements qui seront disputés en 2021. Sur cette plateforme, les athlètes et les cyclistes récréatifs auront l’occasion de profiter d’un aperçu des véritables parcours de courses proposés en 2021, grâce aux enregistrements vidéo réels et aux données d’élévation de chaque site.

Série nationale de courses virtuelles

Afin de répondre aux besoins du niveau le plus élevé de compétitions virtuelles, Cyclisme Canada en partenariat avec Broadcast Services International produira sa première Série nationale de courses virtuelles en 2021. La série inaugurale comprendra un élément de diffusion en direct et devrait démarrer en mars 2021.

Championnats du Monde Cyclisme Esport UCI – Épreuves d’entraînement Zwift de Cyclisme Canada

Les abonnés Zwift auront l’occasion de se joindre à l’équipe nationale esport de Cyclisme Canada en préparation pour l’édition inaugurale des Championnats du Monde Cyclisme Esport UCI. Cyclisme Canada organisera trois courses publiques sur Zwift, les 14, 21 et 28 novembre, mettant en vedette des membres de l’équipe canadienne. Tout comme avec la Série de courses du mercredi soir, des catégories seront offertes pour tous les niveaux d’aptitude, notamment une catégorie propre aux femmes.

Assurez-vous de consulter la page des événements du site Web de Cyclisme Canada et les comptes de médias sociaux de Cyclisme Canada pour tous les détails sur ces événements qui seront régulièrement mis à jour.
