7th December 2020 COVID-19 Training Update

Posted on 7 December 2020

This update is for all athletes training at DEL and with WSEH and the information is based on the latest government and England Athletics guidance from 4th December 2020. All WSEH coaches are being kept up-to-date with the current situation and are planning appropriately. We therefore recommend that athletes who are current club members and/or train at WSEH make contact their coach(es) to find out what they have planned.

Please remember that the club and DEL staff are only following government guidelines so we request that all club members and coaches remain respectful and adhere to the rules so that we can enable as many people as possible to  train during this difficult time.

Coaching Ratios:

Coaching group ratios can consist of 1 coach for 12 athletes or 2 coaches for 15 athletes.
