Strictly only 1 parent/guardian can attend sessions. 

 Indoor Sessions – Parents/Guardians must wear face covering to the class and should adhere to Scottish Government social distancing guidelines.

Outdoor Sessions – Parents/Guardians must follow social distancing guidelines. 

2. 3 - 16 years sessions:

Indoor Sessions - Parents/Guardians should wait outside the venue in a social distancing queue, a coach will come out and take all participants into the hall/studio for each coaching session. 

Outdoor sessions – Parents/Guardians should wait at the entrance of the pitch/track in a social distance queue and your coach will take participants onto the pitch/track. 

The coach will also let you know a collection point for collecting your child which will adhere to the one way system operated within the venue.

7. To allow our equipment and halls to be thoroughly cleaned between each class we are changing class times slightly;

1 hour classes will last 55 mins and 45 minute classes will now last 40 mins.

This will give us time to ensure all equipment is cleaned and sanitised for the next class coming in and to make sure all participants are safely picked up at the collection point.

8. Can all parents/guardians please arrive on time for the session, do not enter the class early.
