The guidelines below are based on the guidelines issued by Scottish Athletics (Updated on 08/10/2020), please make yourself familiar with these guidelines before attending training.

Scottish Athletics COVID-19 Guidelines


If you are not feeling well do not attend training.



Contact Details


It is a mandatory requirement that sport facility operators/Clubs collect the name, contact number, date of visit, time of arrival, and where possible the departure time of all those attending facilities or activities. Sports facility operators should store information for 21 days and share it when requested to do so by public health officers.



  • Training groups are being organised in "bubbles" of 8 athletes.


  • Athletes must stay within their designated "bubble" for the duration of the session. "Bubbles" will also be maintained for future sessions i.e. training during the week and long runs at the weekend. Athletes should maintain a 2m distance between each other in training (5m if in single file). 
  • Normal physical distancing guidelines apply before and after the activity takes place (see Scottish Government guidance). This group size is recommended to ensure that physical distancing can be maintained prior to, and following, the coaching session.


  • Coaches and other adults assisting must continue to physically distance as per Scottish Government guidance.


  • A coach will be assigned to each "bubble".
  • Each coach will maintain a register for each training session.


  • Hand sanitisers will be available at training if required.

NOTE: There is the possibility if a member of your bubble has been told to self isolate, as a result of NHS test and trace, you may also have to self isolate. There is no pressure on any member to return to training and doing so is entirely a personal choice.
