All corona info gathered
In season 2020-2021 our club also has to deal with all kinds of measures to prevent the spread of the corona virus. On this page you will find all relevant information for yourself or for your kid as member of IJCE. This information is updated regularly, so please come back from time to time to stay updated on the latest changes.
Latest update: 23 april 2021: spring and summer season
You will find an answer to all your questions related to skating and corona on the website of the Royal Dutch Ice Skating Union (KNSB): "Schaatsen & corona". This site has various Q&A sections (in Dutch) where you can find information about training, skating competitions and activities for sporters, parents, trainers and the club staff. These questions and answers are updated regularly.
Besides the general information, we have made an overview of the frequently asked questions and answers about corona and IJCE and/or our training locations: the IJssportcentrum and OpNoord:
Yes it is possible, but we should act together to make sure it can be done safely. The basic rule at this moment is:
Anyone should keep a distance of 1,5 m from other persons. This should be done everywhere, so also during the sporting activities.
There are two exceptions to this rule:
- youth of 17 years and younger do not have to keep a distance while skating amongst eachother.
- children of 12 years and younger don't have to keep a distance anywhere.
We only allow club events and activities that can be held safely for the participants and our volunteers. This decision is made by the organizing committee together with the board. Of course we will always comply with the government regulations and with the regulations of the IJssportcentrum and OpNoord.
In these times, we are all responsible to prevent the spread of the corona virus. As members of the club, we ourselves are responsible that everybody respects the rules during club hours and so to ensure that we can all enjoy our sport safely in the coming period. The board of IJCE trusts that the club members will respect the rules. If you feel unsafe during one of the IJCE activities due to the behaviour of others, please address them directly on this matter, being polite and understanding. Together, we’ll get corona under control.
The IJssportcentrum holds the clubs responsible for compliance with the rules. A club that does not comply wil loose the right to use the facilities.
