The coaches have missed the opportunity to coach your athletes over the last few months and have been looking forward to having them return to the club, when safe to do so.
With that in mind we had a Zoom meeting last night (3/6/2020), wherein we discussed the possible return of some coaching sessions for the under 11’s endurance squad. England Athletics now state that groups of up to 6 can train.
With the guidelines changing, the coaches and I have in mind to return on Tuesday 23rd June 2020. Depending on numbers we will initially run 2/3 groups, following strict social distancing guidelines, with one coach per group of maximum 5 athletes, but all groups within the same general area.
We need to establish numbers, to ascertain if there is any interest for the above proposal. So could parents/carers contact either of the telephone numbers below?
If athletes are keen to return to training, then we encourage parents/carers to prepare them for the sessions by taking the athletes on some runs.
Once the first sessions have been put in place, these will be posted on the website, and will then operate on a first to reply basis. We would ask that no athlete should turn up if they have not had a training place confirmed.
Please monitor the Club website/Twitter, for any updates and changes to the regulations.
We all at RSCAC are looking forward to seeing you all again soon.
