Training in a Tier 3 City

Lions & Flaming Skulls have had various conversations with players and parents regarding our training sessions if the area they are from or the area the rink is in is entered into a tier 3 lockdown.

We have had a look into the government rules and we are still operating our 4 sessions a week.

The government website states the following for sports:

Sport and physical activity

Additional restrictions may apply depending on discussions between central and local government. Find out what additional measures apply in your area.

You can take part in organised outdoor sport and physical activity, including exercise classes, in any number, provided this follows the relevant guidance (for team sports, or for other outdoor licensed physical activity and exercise classes).

Organised sport, exercise classes and other activity groups are only permitted indoors if it is possible for people to avoid mixing with people they do not live with (or share a support bubble with). Where it is likely that households (or support bubbles) will mix, these activities must not go ahead. Social interaction before and after any sport or exercise should be limited to people from the same household or support bubble.

There are exceptions for disability sport, sport for educational purposes and supervised sport and physical activity for under-18s, which can take place in any number.

Lions senior session will remain a closed session to only Lions registered players and we will be taking measures at this session on Thursday to work out a system with the rink and players to carry on training.

Lions Senior Training

Rules will be updated and announced this Thursday once we have spoken to all the Players, Parents, and the rink.

Lions & Flaming skulls know we are not clear of the virus yet but we also feel that sport is a big part of people’s lives and health too. We will do everything to keep all our sessions as long as it is safe to do so.

We will also support North West Roller Sports as much as we can to as again without then we will not have a hockey rink in Manchester and the hard work we have all put in over the last 5 years growing the sport in Manchester will be lost and we may never get it back.

Lions & Flaming Skulls would like to thank all parents and players who have supported us since we started our sessions again and we hope that this helps clear up the confusion over what we are able and unable to do during the tiered lockdowns the government has put in place.

If you have any more questions or would like to come to one of our sessions please contact us via our contact us page.
