Covid Statement

Andy Butcher is our Covid officer and has been following up the recent gov announcements and information from Sport England regarding government guidelines to taking part in organised sport/training.

Members attending training MUST ensure that they follow the track and trace protocol and make sure they have been recorded as attended, a number of people are turning up late and not ensuring that they are registered and this is part of the clubs Covid secure protocol! If people are not follow these rules it could result in very large fines to coaches and the club and being unable to keep everyone safe.
As you will see from the information below, we can still carry on as normal unless a local/regional/nationwide lock down is in force.
An updated Risk Assessment is also attached here.

Information from Sport England:

While social gatherings of more than six people will be banned in England from 14 September, the government’s confirmed that organised sports and activities that have been through return to play protocols can continue, as can organised outdoor sports and physical activity events such as parkrun, which is due to return next month”

People can also continue to use leisure facilities, including gyms and pools – classes within these venues can continue as they are now. People should not go to these venues socially in groups of more than six.

That’s because these sports and activities have stringent plans in place to reduce the risk of Covid-19, and because these venues are classed as Covid-secure given the measures they’ve introduced. The importance of sport and physical activity to people’s physical health and mental well-being has also been recognised by the government.
