After the Firebreak: Sport and physical activity in Wales 🤽 

06/11/2020

OUTDOOR SPORT 

  • Up to 30 people can take part in organised outdoors activities, but the organisers will need to take all reasonable measures to reduce the risk of spreading the virus. 
  • Children aged under 11 plus those organising the activity (such as coaches) are NOT INCLUDED in these numbers.  
  • Guidance issued by governing bodies must be followed. 
     

INDOOR ACTIVITY 

  • Up to 15 people will be able to take part in an organised indoor group activity, whilst individual indoor exercise is still permissible as before the firebreak. 

However, there are two important additions to note: 

  • Children aged under 11 plus those organising the activity (such as coaches) are NOT INCLUDED in these numbers. The number of children aged under 11 who can legally participate is constrained only by the boundaries of the setting (space) and the need for sufficient adults to be present to supervise. 
  • Simultaneous groups of 15 people will be able to take part in organised activities indoors, using the UK Active guidance to determine the maximum capacity for the available setting (space). 


ELITE SPORT 

Elite sports that were suspended during the firebreak will be able to resume. Athletes and coaches designated in this group should liaise with their governing body for further guidance and support.
