We understand this is an incredibly tough and confusing time for our members, coaches and gym owners around the UK. In 2021 as gyms re-opened there were frequent changes to lockdown conditions – nationally and locally.
Updated February 2022
The majority of the UK has moved to minimal restrictions or the removal of restrictions in 2022.
Our overall advice at this stage would be to learn from previous restrictions and make decisions based on the safety of your coaches and customers with which you are comfortable. As a business owner or coach you have the right to put measures in place that you think are right for your business, and have the right to deny participation to those who will not adhere to your guidance and measures.
We have now removed the regularly update guidance for each of the 4 nations. If you need specific advice please contact us with questions.
Our COVID toolkit with in depth advice around coaching, classes and venues will remain available.
It is important to remember that the COVID virus is still prevalent across the country and Parkour UK will fully support any measures that any organisations decide to keep in place.
Here in our Return to Move page we are supporting members in a number of ways:
- A Parkour & COVID toolkit – this is a downloadable file of examples of best practice from a number of our members of risk assessments, coaches guidance and other examples. These are free to use and adapt for your own gym.
- Regular updates of general guidance from Parkour UK.
- Links to the UK and devolved nation’s live guidance, and that of the corresponding sports bodies
Please note that these are general recommendations and you should refer to guidance regarding any local lockdowns in your area which may have further restrictions.
Current live guidance from governments and sports bodies:
The UK government and each of the devolved Nations have the latest and frequently updated guidelines available, and we would encourage individuals and organisations to look at the relevant local guidelines in the first instance for implementation.
Feel free to contact us directly if you have a specific question or need.
