Friday 23rd April 2021

Spikes on track

Covid-19 section (documents dated 22 April)

It has been great to see all the club activity restarting on social media over the past few weeks.

Thanks to you all for your efforts in keeping your athletes and volunteers engaged and hopefully the momentum continues to build in the coming weeks as more adults return to training and competition resumes across all age groups.

You will be aware of the impending changes to restrictions across Scotland from Monday 26 April, and scottishathletics has now received an update from sportscotland and Scottish Government with further guidance for sport.

The key points to note from Monday 26 April are:

*All of Scotland should move to Level 3

*Adults can travel between Level 3 areas for organised sport (including training sessions)

*Competition is permitted with maximum numbers of 200 athletes per day and bubbles of 30. The total number of 200 excludes officials and volunteers.

*Adults must still physically distance in training and competition. However, track races exclusively in lanes are permitted for adults during competition and each lane can be used

*Where facilities are open, indoor athletics activity can resume in line with group size guidance and physical distancing requirements as set out in our Framework.

Further guidance for event organisers can be found in the Covid-19 section on our website.

Within the documents lodged thereon (dated 22 April 2021), the most recent changes are highlighted in yellow.

‘I want to thank all our members for their patience and continued support over the past year or so,’ said chief executive Colin Hutchison.

‘We are also very grateful to sportscotland and the Scottish Government for their hard work and guidance in recent weeks and indeed throughout the pandemic.’
