(Appropriately risk assessed and safeguarding in place)
From 12th April (subject to final confirmation from the NI Exec after Easter), outdoor gymnastics sessions are permitted. Individual groups should be no larger than 15 including coaches.
Multiple groups may train at the same time if groups remain separate and no mixing or joining of groups takes place. The maximum number of groups permitted on a pitch/sports space is as follows:
• Aged 18 and over – one group of 15 inclusive of coaches
• Aged 13-18 – two separate groups of 15 inclusive of coaches
• Aged 12 and under – three separate groups of 15 inclusive of coaches
The groups must be distinct, with no transfer between groups. Where age groups are mixed, the guidance on numbers will default to that which applies to the oldest gymnasts.
Activities are limited to British Gymnastics endorsed programmes. Activity should not include the development of new skills.
All skills must be performed individually with social distancing in place, unless gymnasts are from the same household or support bubble
No contact is permitted between coach and gymnast (unless in an emergency).
Outdoor sessions require the use of sufficient matting, all outdoor skills must take place on a safely matted surface. Approved hand apparatus can be used throughout the session if it is not shared. Large equipment such as bars, trampettes, mushrooms and beams must not be used.
Indoor facilities must remain closed (with the exception of a toilet for emergency use)
No spectators are permitted. Where possible gymnasts should be dropped off and picked up or parents/carers should remain in cars. Car sharing is not allowed and larger congregations or gatherings in areas such as car parks are not permitted.
Indoor sport is not permitted, other than at elite level. All sports facilities including gymnastics clubs must close.
