As Head Coach, I have been debating the situation with my coaches and the potential risks to both coaches, riders and others we may all be in contact with. Although children within our Junior Clubs are low risk in terms of the degree of illness caused by the virus, they can however be super-carriers in terms of spreading the virus to the more vulnerable population. In conclusion, I have decided to suspend all coaching events + the Advance Junior Club and the forthcoming start of the Saturday Junior Club with immediate effect. I cannot state when this situation will change, but we will post updates on the website and social media when I reconsider this decision, which may be some months away.
I trust members will understand and support this decision for the greater protection of the most vulnerable people in our society.
