Coaching During Covid-19

Guidance and advice to support your coaching during the Covid-19 pandemic. Including updated Government advice and NGB Return to Play documents.

As you may have seen from the Government's recent announcement, we are again in a National Lockdown. This means that extra restrictions, which have now become law, apply for coaches. The law states that:

  • Elite sportspeople (and their coaches, or parents/guardians if they are under 18) – or those on an official elite sports pathway – will be allowed to compete and train.
  • Indoor gyms and sports facilities, such as leisure centres, swimming pools, sports courts, fitness and dance studios and climbing walls, will be closed.
  • Outdoor sports courts, outdoor gyms, golf courses, outdoor swimming pools, archery/driving/shooting ranges and riding arenas will be closed.
  • Organised outdoor sport for disabled people is allowed to continue.

If you need any further advice, please get in contact with Northamptonshire Sport, or visit the UK Coaching website.
