GB Snowsport today announce that the British Alpine Children’s Championships 2021, which were due to be held in Tignes, France between April 5th – April 9th, 2021 has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 virus pandemic.
Following weeks of continued monitoring of the global pandemic, the GB Snowsport Board has made the decision to cancel the event.
With current Government UK Guidelines stating that only elite athletes can travel, GB Snowsport is awaiting further clarification from officials, before making a decision on the FIS British Alpine Championships due to take place in Tignes between March 28th – April 4th.
Vicky Gosling OBE, Chief Executive Officer of GB Snowsport, said: “We acknowledge that it is enormously disappointing that we’ve had to cancel the British Children’s Championships for a second year, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
We take the safety and well-being of all children, officials and spectators extremely seriously, which is why we had to make this difficult, but necessary decision. I want to personally thank Tignes for their continued partnership, and we look forward to returning in 2022.”
