COVID-19 Phase 1 Guidance from Scottish Athletics

We hope all our athletes, coaches, parents, families, officials & supporters  are well.

All members will have today recieved the email from Colin Hutchison Head of Development at Scottish Athletics outlining the guidance for Club Athletes etc following the introduction of Phase 1 Easing of Lockdown Restrictions  announced today .

We are all hoping and looking forward hopefully to the continued easing of the restrictions over the next period of weeks . Phase 1 is obviously limited.  The Coaches Committee will be convened asap to discuss the implications and consider how we go forward in the club.  This will be then cascaded to all coaches and then to athletes .

The full guidance is attached with links to the proposed Exit Plan Framework and the refinements which will be agreed at each stage.

Any queries in the meantime please raise with your coach.

Dear Member

I hope this e-mail finds you well.

scottishathletics have been closely following developments as we begin to emerge from lockdown, and have now updated the scottishathletics Exit Plan Framework. We have also created our own ‘route maps’ for clubs, coaches and athletes that adhere to the Scottish Government’s latest advice.

The guidance will come into effect from Friday 29 May 2020.

The key advice for Phase 1 is that one-to-one coaching is permitted if it is outdoors, physical distancing can be maintained, and is with members of your household and/or members of one other household. A coach should not deliver training to more than one household at any one time or provide training to more than one household per day.

All documents are available to download from scottishathletics – exit plan framework and guidance documents

Kind regards

Colin Hutchison
Head of Development
