MARKETING TOOLS

The CEC has produced a marketing kit to support climbing gyms in educating their clientele. 


LOBBYING

The CEC and the PSOs have sign an open letter of support for the climbing industry. When lobbying to provincial government and public health authorities, climbing gym owners should add this letter to their package. This will provide a national voice to their lobbying campaign. We are always stronger together, and government respond better when local efforts are supported by recognized Provincial and National Sport Organizations.


ABOUT THE TASK FORCE

The National Pandemic-Response Task Force has agreed on two mandates:

Lobbying & Marketing

Objectives:

  • Empower gym owners to lobby on behalf of the national and provincial sport organizations by providing them with a letter to support their outreach.
  • Echo the gym owners request to government by utilizing the CEC political network.
  • Message the climbing community about the efforts currently in place.
  • Offer marketing tools to gym owners in an effort to reduce their costs to implement proper education in their facilities.

Guidelines & Resources

Objectives:

  • Review guidelines provided by local health authorities and government (municipal, provincial and federal).
  • Review resources shared by National Climbing Federations.
  • Develop a Guidance Document and tools to help gym owners navigate through the many recommendations and guidelines, while providing flexibility for provincial and local adaptations.
  • Offer clear suggestions on how to implement guidelines into the climbing facilities, should gym owners be looking for additional support.
