Information for sports clubs and organisations
With some sports/activities starting to return, although with limitations, we’d encourage you to keep an eye on news from your national governing body who are issuing regular updates as the situation changes and advice is received from government. Keep your members updated with any progress and timescales (if known) and any steps you will be taking to ensure social distancing/safe practice. If your national governing body has any posters/guidance that you display or post on your website/social media please use this to help spread messages. We’ve heard of local authorities very keen to ensure that all measures are followed especially if you rent the facility so please adhere to the rules. This does remain a period to ensure that you are in the best possible shape when the green light is given for activities to recommence so we would encourage you to take advantage of any online CPD you can complete within the club and ensuring that behind the scenes you are well prepared and organised. Finances are of course key so again keep members posted with decisions you make about reduced fees, deferments, extending the current membership period to take into account lost time etc. We’ve been amazed at some of the ways clubs have continued to engage with their members, online training sessions, social catch ups and helping others in the community. Keep up the good work as we edge ever closer to a return to action.
