To all our members, athletes and associates...

COVID-19 - Coronavirus

The following is the updated key-note advisary from England Athletics:

"As per our update below dated 15 May, current guidance from England Athletics is following the government's guidelines as they are rolled out. It is a very fluid situation and we can confirm that our previously stated deadline of 31 May as the deadline for the suspension of all athletics activity in England is now no longer valid. However, the only permitted activity is stated under our latest guidance update (for a restricted return to training) [refers to 1:1 coaching only with parent/guardian present for under 18 year olds. No groups]. This will remain the case until we are able to update the guidance further based on any new announcements from UK government. As soon as the situation changes, we will of course confirm this across all our communication channels. The separate suspension of competitions activity, currently to 30 June 2020, remains in place. Please see below for our guidance documents for athletes and runners, coaches and leaders and athletic venues."

Holland Sports AC are now relaxing training restrictions in line with EA guidelines. Coaching is being offered on a 1:1 basis following strict health, social distancing & safeguarding guidelines. Whilst you can appreciate the practical logistics of a club of our size will be challenging, we will endevour to offer the coaching time to those interested. Your coach will be in touch to plan this further.
Please be aware, there will NO pressure from the coaching team or club for any athlete to return to training under these limited access conditions. We respect individual athlete's personal & family situations.

As you can appreciate the situation is quite fluid so please stay in touch; we continue to follow the guidelines of UK Government & England Athletics.
