Welcome 2021 – Welsh Sports Association update
The Welsh Sports Association team would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year. We face some imminent challenges as a sector, but we also have some ambitious plans for 2021. We will look to share information, support and advice to members via the WSA website. If you miss any of these updates, you will be able to access them here or via the News section of the website.
The Welsh Sports Association continues to run an online Covid-19 awareness course for the Sport and Recreation Sector, please click here for further information.
Our helpline service is open, so please get in touch if you have any queries, including Legal support, GDPR advice, DBS assistance, Insurance reviews & future travel guidance.
Please note that the WSA member survey deadline is tomorrow Tuesday the 5th January 2021 and that the next WSA sector Business Continuity call is scheduled for the 13th January 2021 at 14.00 – further details to follow.
Please remember that Wales is already in ‘Alert Level 4’ (Stay at Home), and that announcements expected by the Prime Minister later today are England only. Under Alert Level 4, outdoor exercise is permitted alone or with a member of your household, and should start and end at home.
Just before Christmas, the Welsh Government published guidance on a phased return for sport and leisure, which will for the most part apply when Wales moves to Alert Level 3. Thresholds for each Alert Level are contained in the Welsh Government’s Coronavirus Control Plan, which was most recently updated on the 14th December 2020.
