In light of the government’s announcements during the last week England Athletics have produced guidance notes for athletes, coaches and facilities. The link for this is below. However the situation for the Club is as follows:-
SBC have decommissioned all their pavilions including Ridlins Stadium. In effect this means there will be a 3 to 4 week delay in re opening the facility when such facilities can be reopened. All systems at the Stadium will need testing and full risk assessments completed before any use of the stadium and track will be allowed. SNHAC’s committee are in the process of working out the processes which will need to be in place before small groups of users will be able to use the facility and these will include risk assessments, social distancing, equipment cleaning and facility cleaning.
In the meantime additional suggestions will be added to the Home Training page (under Club information on the website), Zoom sessions will continue for the Year 4, 5 and 6 group, LJ/TJ group and older PV athletes. Club members can contact their coaches to discuss training issues.
We will continue to keep you updated as the picture becomes clearer but currently we do not envisage Ridlins Stadium being open for training before late August or early September.
