Updated Return to Sport and Physical Activity Guidance (Scotland) 12th March 2021

Scottish Fencing provides an update on return to sport and physical activity in Scotland.

Following the First Minister’s announcement, the updated guidance for Scotland can be found here.

Changes are highlighted in yellow and as a quick summary the key points are:

  • Children under 12 years of age can take part in outdoor contact and non-contact organised sport including training, group exercise and competition within their usual club or facility environment. (note this is not intended to support inter club training, competition or events).

  • An outdoor sporting ‘field of play bubble’ for under 12s consists of up to 30 people including children and coaches at any one time (over 12s ‘field of play bubble’ is up to 15 people).

And with regard to sections 34 – 36 please note:

  • Children aged under 12 should not travel to other clubs or venues for sessions or activities they do not usually take part in. Over 18s must also remain within their local authority area.

Please find here a document from the Scottish Government highlighting key dates over the next few months as Scotland continues the exit out of lockdown.
