Wednesday 3rd June 2020

England Athletics have reviewed the guidance offered to athletes, coaches and facilities in light of changes to Government guidance. Further details are on the EA website and can be found at https://www.englandathletics.org/athletics-and-running/news/guidance-update-step-2/ . We still do not know when Stevenage Borough Council will recommission the Stadium but when they do it will be a month before it is open to allow for all systems to be tested and full risk assessments carried out by both SBC and the Club. The Club will not be able to return to any form of training at the track until these risk assessments reach EA standards so we have full insurance cover. Some coaches may be offering 1-1 sessions and small group sessions in public spaces but only after they have carried out the necessary risk assessments (which must be available for athletes and parents to see). Individual coaches will contact athletes if they are offering these.

Small group training will not commence until SNHAC know which coaches are able to coach and when they are available. Some may not be able to return due to ongoing health issues or family self-isolation. It is likely that capacity on the track will be significantly less than normal due to self-distancing guidelines and a booking system may be in operation. Further details will be available once we have a possible date for reopening.

In the meantime please see the Home Training plans and list of Zoom sessions listed on the website.

Keep well and keep checking the website.
