Following recent information from Scottish Athletics and a Q&A session with them we are providing the following update There is no immediate change to training but we expect sessions for Junior athletes to resume soon. Restrictions still apply to all Senior Athletes 12 – 17 year olds are anticipated to be allowed to train from 15 March onwards but we have no specific details yet of group sizes, physical distancing etc. We are planning for a return initially for groups of 8 with 1 coach. Any further changes will be advised as soon as confirmed . We will be looking at risk assessments & re-issuing Covid Guidance for sessions for athletes and parents. We understand that travel restrictions will still apply and athletes will be unable to travel outwith their local authority area. Therefore we will be organising training sessions for Glasgow athletes in Glasgow and E Ren athletes in E Ren. We are checking track availability for a proposed return w/c 15 March. At this time we are still unsure whether all tracks will be available as some schools may not be fully open by that date. Giffnock North has decided that the U11s, while able to train at the moment, will not return immediately and will, therefore, also return w/c 15 March at the same time as the older age groups. There is no proposed return on this date for athletes aged 18 and over and they should not be taking part in formal sessions. They are allowed to train informally adhering to the household guidelines in force just now, two adults from two different households. You will hear soon, we hope, regarding arrangements. You can direct any further enquiries to your coach/ coaches Thanks for your understanding Stay safe everyone Clare Stevenson 27 Jul 2020 Log in to Reply GROUP TRAINING HAS RESUMED Under Phase 3 of the Scottish Government and Guidance from Scottish Athletics we have been able to resume some Group Training within the Junior Section of the club.

In the interests of safety for all and the challenge of COVID-19, this requires us to adhere strictly to smaller training groups, to the Pre-Booking of classes,to ensuring our Data is updated for any Contact and Trace Needs and to hygiene measures at sessions to prevent any transmission of the virus. These arrangements are complicated administratively.You will receive or have received details from coaches . Please be patient and follow the advice carefully. Our CLUB COVID Co-ordinators are Jackie Alexander [email firstname.lastname@example.org] & Sara Lang [email Sararusselllang@btinternet.com] Most queries re training will be dealt with by your coaches but we add these contacts here for information for any queries not related to Training issues. The COVID Co-ordinators have been appointed by the Board of the club to help us ensure we adhere to the Scottish Govt Advice and of course, that of our governing body- Scottish Athletics. On the SA website you will be able to see the extensive information which has been made available to all Coaches, Parents, Athletes, Officials and Club Committee and which has required substantial updating as each Phase of the easing of restrictions has occurred.
