UPDATE November 24th 2021:

The club’s Covid 19 Officers continue to update advise to keep our members and their families safe. The current rate of infection in the country is obviously of concern to all. As a club we must continue to be cautious and minimize risk. The club’s Covid Officers continue to be of the view that continued caution and personal responsibility is of paramount importance.

The dressing rooms/showers/hall will continue to remain closed at this time.

Outdoor training and competition thankfully continues. We recommend that coaches wear face masks/coverings and athletes wear face masks/coverings for meeting up/taking instructions and only remove face masks/coverings when training commences.

It is vitally important that we all continue to observe the following:

Do not come training if you have any Covid or flu like symptoms or indeed a cold.

Please observe coughing and sneezing etiquette.

Please refrain entirely from spitting.

Wash your hands before you leave home to come training, bring a hand sanitiser with you, do not press any pedestrian crossing buttons with your hands (that’s what elbows are for!) and if you are stretching do not use a railings or park bench or similar to support you while you stretch.

Do not share drinks, be absolutely careful that your drink bottle does not touch against another athletes drink bottle, do not handle another athletes drink bottle, it is vitally important that cross contamination is avoided.
