Dear Parent / Carer

On 1st June England Athletics issued updated guidance for restricted return to activity – step 2.  For more information please click here:

The guidance states:

  • Coaching can take place between one coach and up to five (5) athletes.

  • Coaching of young athletes on a one-to-one basis should only be undertaken in sight of the parent or guardian. *Updated 15/09/2020: In order to keep numbers to a minimum, you are able to leave your child as long as you have supplied us with a next of kin contact number on the Track Passport declaration form and the Track Booking form should we need to quickly get in touch.  

  • Social distancing guidance must be maintained at all times.

  • Coaches must ensure they have the permission/agreement of the responsible parent or guardian of an athlete who is under the age of 18 to coach that athlete.

If you wish for your child / young person to take part in coaching sessions you will need to complete the below consent form:
