Competitions & BUCS:
BUCS have released a statement and information page which outlines that there will be no competitive season in Michaelmas Term. The plan is that if things return to normal, the competitive season will run January to April 2021.
Booking Your Facilities & Coaches:
When booking your facilities we advise that you only book on a termly basis at the most. Where possible 1 or 2 month bookings would be advisable to allow more flexiblility if parts of london go into local lockdown. Also when negotiating or receiving booking agreements for spaces, ensuring that the cancellation policy is COVID proof. For support on this, please email our Sport and Recreation Manager, Grace Clare on firstname.lastname@example.org
When booking your coaches, it is important to clarify with them that at the point of local lockdown restrictions coming into effect, you may not need them for thier regular hours and reminding them that .
Being Flexible about in-person activities
The guidance above regarding planning for the future, may lead to disappointment. You may need to cancel in-person activities at short notice, or transititon them to digital events. We are in the process of creating guidance on transitioning events & activities from physical to digital. Check back soon.
Booking & Using the Old Gym & Badminton Courts
At the moment, the old gym and badminton court is closed because we cannot allow the use of the space safely within the COVID restrictions
We will use the Government Guidance and LSE's information to decide whether our clubs are able to use the space again. Once the Union decides the space is able to be used again we will contact all clubs to let them know and update our committee hubs page with next steps and further information.
You can discuss what bookings you would like to make for Michaelmas Term with Steve Butter, Head Groundsman, on email@example.com. Please bare in mind, Steve will need a copy of your Union approved risk assessment and then may ask you to add futher risk mitigiation actions to it, inline with LSE's policies for using the spaces at Berryland.
