9/1/21: COVID-19 UPDATE
Dear Skate Like a Girl community members,
As you know, the pandemic is still not over. With the news of the variants and infection rates going back up, we have had to make some tough choices to ensure we are continuing to serve our mission without putting our community in unnecessary danger.
For this coming fall, we are excited to continue programs in all 3 chapter cities, including social distance clinics with high-needs youth, community meetups, Women &/or Trans Sessions, and events like Shop Hangs.
With this choice to continue programs, we wanted to ensure our community understands the measures that will continue to be in place to keep our participants, volunteers, and staff safe:
Masks will be required to be worn at all Skate Like a Girl programming and events, for staff, volunteers, and participants of all ages. The only exception to this mandate is outdoor community meetups, as these are hosted at shared public spaces that we cannot control. At these outdoor community meetups, masks are highly encouraged and additional masks will be available for anyone in need.
No Contact! Pad up!
Our staff and volunteers will continue to facilitate Skate Like a Girl programming without contacting participants. Skateboarding is a dangerous activity, and therefore we encourage the use of helmets and elbow/knee/wrist pads for skaters in our programs. Helmets, pads, and skateboards, will be provided to any skater in need, to keep. We will continue to not loan gear out to minimize contact and contamination. If you’d like to request gear please complete our Gear Request Form by clicking here.
Refunds are Easy!
We strongly encourage our community to stay home if they are feeling ill, or if they have been exposed to anyone who is ill. Any participant in a fee-based Skate Like a Girl program is entitled to a full refund if they are potentially experiencing symptoms of Covid-19, or potentially exposed to someone with Covid-19. Additionally, if a program is cancelled due to a Covid-19 exposure, participants will be refunded fully.
Our intention with this memo is to acknowledge that we are still in a pandemic and are taking precautions to keep our community safe while skateboarding with us. We appreciate your patience and support as we continue to navigate our new reality. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please contact us at email@example.com.
