The Covid-19 pandemic poses significant challenges to NENSA’s 2020-21 winter event schedule but we are as committed as ever to our New England community and making every effort to host safe events and support our clubs as best we can during this time. Our primary goal is to keep our community safe while our secondary goal is to host our events albeit with new formats that put health at the forefront and comply with all state, local, and venue COVID policies. Skiers are encouraged to limit their travel and attend events that are within their region and state.
We understand that the course of this pandemic, and thus the guidelines put in place to keep us safe, might not progress linearly. While the nature of competition will remain the same, we must operate our events in a manner that ensures the safety of all athletes, volunteers, staff and the communities in which our events are held until the end of the Covid-19 pandemic. Below you will find detailed information outlining our event plans - please note all of these outlines require that participants abide by the New England Cross Country Promise (NECCP) - failing to follow these guidelines may warrant removal from an event and jeopardizes our community and the entire event calendar. Our goal is to be transparent and keep our community informed and up-to-date on our evolving thoughts and plans.
