COVID-19 coaching information and resources

In keeping with sportscotland and Scottish Governing Bodies (SGBs) guidance, we are working to get our clubs back up and running while also planning for new activities. It is important that coaches, deliverers, volunteers, leaders, personal trainers and instructors (hereinafter referred to as “coaches”) are aware and can adapt to changes in guidance at short notice.
