News

SLSA Wales has received a notification from Welsh Government that following last Friday’s announcement by the First Minister, children will be able to travel out of, or into lockdown areas to participate in sport or other activities from 6pm tonight – 16th October 2020.

This change will apply to anyone under the age of 18, and they will be able to be accompanied by one responsible member of their household over the age of 18 if required for transport etc. For the purpose of this change, the regulations define "under 18" as "a person who was aged under 18 on 31 August 2020.

It has also been confirmed with the Welsh Government that the regulations also allow volunteers & coaches, who are required to facilitate activities for under 18s to travel.

We still encourage clubs to make provisions that minimise travel across lockdown area boundaries by adults – including utilising alternative locations, and where possible using adult coaches/volunteers from the local area. If this is not practical then adult coaches & volunteers will be able to travel, but only to facilitate activities for under 18s.

We have provided the latest information including the Updated Welsh Government Regulations – shorturl.at/bjAX3 (copy and paste into web browser) and the FAQs on what is permitted in local lockdown areas – shorturl.at/hoTW3 (copy and paste into web browser)

We will inform members of any additional information we receive.
