04-01-21 TRACK CLOSED

Unfortunately, following the Government's announcement earlier this evening, the track will now be closed at all times until further notice. No training is allowed as Freedom have to close the sports facilities at the park.

 

04-01-21 Training Under Tier 4 Restrictions

We have agreed the following arrangements with Freedom Leisure regarding track availability under the current Tier 4 restrictions. Please note that this may change at very short notice depending on Government advice.

 

Athletes over 18 are currently allowed to train individually or with one other person (other athlete or coach) only. Under 18s are still allowed to train in groups in organised sessions.

 

As a club, we can not, therefore, hold sessions for over 18s but will hold sessions on Tuesday and Thursday evenings for under 18s.

 

Track availability is as follows:

MONDAY – Track available for individual training during the day. Payment to be made to Rangers. Park will close at 5pm (no evening training).

 

TUESDAY - Track available for individual training during the day. Payment to be made to Rangers. Individuals to have cleared the track by 6pm. Evening Club session for Under 18s only in prearranged coached sessions. No over 18s allowed. Payment for club session to be made to whoever you normally pay at the club.

 

WEDNESDAY – Track available for individual training during the day and evening until 8pm. Payment to be made to Rangers

 

THURSDAY - Track available for individual training during the day. Payment to be made to Rangers. Individuals to have cleared the track by 6pm. Evening Club session for Under 18s in prearranged coached sessions. Individual athletes are not allowed but there may be the possibility for coaches to attend with one individual athlete if prearranged with Shaun (we are currently seeking guidance on this). Payment for club session to be made to whoever you normally pay at the club.

 

FRIDAY, SATURDAY, SUNDAY - Track available for individual training during the normal park opening hours. Payment to be made to Rangers.  

 

Please make sure you comply with the Government guidelines. Freedom could remove access to the track altogether if athletes do not comply.

 

Freedom will limit the number of individuals on the track to ensure guidelines are complied with.

 

Groups of under 18s must be supervised by a fully qualified coach (or have a fully qualified coach on site overseeing the session) and coaches are not allowed to take part in the session.

 

To clarify:-

  • Tuesday and Thursday evenings are club sessions for under 18s and payment is to be made to the club as normal.

  • Payment at all other times to be made to the Rangers, preferably by contactless payment. Please make sure you do pay if you train on the track. If you can’t find the Ranger, give them the money next time you are there.

 

If you are still unclear, or have any queries, please contact me direct or ask your coach.
