Phase 3 – Frequently Asked Questions

scottishathletics were pleased to stage three webinars early last week in order to help give clubs further guidance about Covid-19 effects and moves towards the return of group athletics activity.

Dozens of volunteers from across the sport joined a panel of five of our staff for the Zoom meetings on Monday and Tuesday.

We are continuing to up-date advice documents which are being sent out to clubs and published on the website to give as much information as we have available.

To that end, we’ve drawn together a series of Frequently Asked Questions from the Phase 3 sessions and prepared a document with the answers for your assistance.

‘We hope these new documents give more help and guidance to our clubs,’ said Colin Hutchison, Head of Development.

‘The online meetings have generated a lot of interest and from out point of view it let us know exactly where people are looking for clarity. The FAQs document has 23 questions this time so hopefully the answers really do help as we all work to a full return of group athletics.’
