URGENT COVID-19 UPDATE - 14th APRIL 2021

 

A new update has been issued by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) and Sport England regarding the guidance on the return of indoor sport.

 

Further to the communication that we issued last week, The British Roller Sports Federation has received another update in relation to returning to indoor roller sports for U18 players from 12 April.

 

DCMS have confirmed that, in line with guidance issued by the Department for Education, the maximum number of people allowed on an indoor playing surface remains at 30, however:

 

They must be in bubbles of 15 people (2 bubbles per playing surface maximum)

The two bubbles must not come into contact with one another.

Maximum 30 people includes coaches, staff and officials.

 

While this new guidance does not significantly change the ability for clubs to train indoors, it does have an impact on the return of indoor competition.

 

It is still our intention to move to Level 4 of our Return to Play roadmap, reintroducing indoor competition for all participants, from 17 May 2021 (subject to Government guidelines).

 

A new Roadmap and guidance for England will be available shortly.

 

We can confirm that the below is now applicable for all roller sport participants:

 

What is permitted from 12 April in England?

 

(UNDER 18 - as of 31st August 2020)

Phase 3 – Outdoor and Indoor organised roller sports permitted, maximum of 30 per playing surface (bubbles of 15 if indoor, bubbles cannot mix), no spectators other than those needed to supervise under-18’s that they have a responsibility for.

Competitive roller sports in outdoor settings only

The Prime Minister's statement to the House of Commons today provides positive news about the winding down of Covid-19 restrictions.


The British Roller Sports Federation will now consult with the DCMS about exactly what this means for our sport and update the roller sport community as soon as possible.


We will revise our Return To Play Roadmap and guidance for roller sports and communicate it as soon as possible.


Below are the key points from the Prime Minister's address today.


What will be allowed in England


From 8 March

  • Under-18 sport can take place at school as part of educational provision, or as part of wraparound care.
  • The stay-at-home restriction will continue but will be amended so people can leave home for recreation as well as exercise outdoors - with their own household, support, or childcare bubble, or with one person from another household. Social distancing and other safe behaviours should be followed.

From 29 March

  • Outdoor sports facilities can reopen. Formally organised outdoor sports - for adults and under 18s - can also restart and will not be subject to the gatherings limits.

No earlier than 12 April

  • Indoor leisure centres/rinks can open for use individually or within household groups.
  • All children will be able to attend any indoor children's activity, including sport, regardless of circumstance.

No earlier than 17 May

  • Adult indoor group sports and exercise classes.

We are waiting for the devolved nations to provide details of their roadmap and will update as soon as possible for Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland.
