Will it be safe?
While there are no guarantees, the Aviators has consistently exceeded AHS recommendations regarding Covid 19 and the recommendations that AHS put forth.
Regular hand sanitizing, physical distancing and masks are non-negotiable requirements when required by AHS. The Aviators has also made efforts to keep our groups small in order to maintain physical distancing at all times.
The Aviators also have volunteers at entrances to ensure that only participants are in the facility. While these measures do not guarantee, Covid won't sneak its way in to our facility, we by far have been the best club in Alberta in regards to player's safety.
Can parents watch in the gym? Only participants, coaches and approved personnel are allowed in the facility at this time.
