Club Ongoing Steps
Our risk assessment is every changing in terms of making a decision as to whether we think it is safe to open each programme or club. We must all understand this can change at any point depending on Government advice and updates we receive.
Please note, as a sports provider we are not experts in the science behind COVID-19. Our risk assessment relates to whether we are able to follow the guidance from the Government. In terms of the risk the virus presents to coaches and children who attend, I believe it is for the Government to make a decision. I would ask parents to bear this in mind when considering whether you wish to send your child to a programme or club. You may also wish to look at our T&C before booking.
- Coaches will continue to attempt to remain at a distance from pupils, but this will not always be possible when supporting children with their skills, especially the younger ones.
- Hygiene and cleaning will continue to be of the utmost importance. Children will wash or use alcohol gel on arrival to Boom, before and after activities
- Frequently touched surfaces such as door handles will be cleaned throughout the sessions. Coaches will be cleaning equipment as well.
- It goes without saying that no one should come to Boom if they are displaying symptoms of COVID-19. If children appear to have symptoms during a session, we will call you and ask you to collect your child and any siblings, take them home and seek medical advice, including seeking a test. Government guidance on isolation should be followed if still required.
- If there is a confirmed case of COVID-19 in your household, please phone us immediately. We will then contact East Sussex and Public Health England and follow their advice.
- If your child is ill for any reason, please ensure you let us know by phone.
- We will continue to keep rooms / halls well ventilated by opening windows / doors etc where possible.
- Guidance on protective equipment from the Government indicates that facemasks should not be needed or worn in Primary schools other than in exceptional circumstances. We do not anticipate our staff wearing them routinely and we would not advocate attendees doing so either.
- Parents should drop children at the venues/classes as normal but please attempt to remain at a distance from each other.
- Government guidance is that there is no need for anything other than normal personal hygiene when children return home I.e. clothes don’t need to be washed after each day, but it is obviously up to you as to what you decide to do in your own home.
I thank you all for your co-operation, patience and understanding in this matter.
