Covid-19 Guidelines

Following Sport Scotland guidelines, I am delighted to say that Linda Ford and Russell Taylor have taken on the responsibility as Covid Officers. Their role is to ensure that documented risk assessments and all appropriate mitigations are put in place before any activity is undertaken. Copies of Risk Assessments are available if requested.

It is vital that all our players, coaches and parents follow the below guidelines.

We fully appreciate that we all have different circumstances and safety will always come first. 

AT HOME PRIOR TO TRAINING

The main symptoms of coronavirus (Covid-19) are a high temperature, a new continious cough and a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste. There are other symptoms as detailed in the link below.

To protect others, if you or any members of your household are showing any symptoms, stay at home (self-isolate) and get a test.

Those symptomatic should self-isolate for 7 days, household members for 14 days as per info on NHS guidance. No one self isolating should attend any of our sessions in any capacity.

Please notify us if any players or family members have symptoms.

WASHING HANDS

We should all be in a good habit with washing our hands now but after a period of time it is easy to let standards slip. Please follow the NHS guidelines with washing hands and ensure that you wash your hands prior to and after any session.

Washing hands
