We hope this finds you and your family well and would like to take this opportunity to update you regarding the latest situation.
England Athletics have released further guidance regarding training and subscriptions.
Training: As a club we will not be training up to 31st May at the earliest and all competitions up to that date have been cancelled or postponed. Coaches are not to train any athletes personally, but of course can give advice remotely for athletes to keep up their fitness while training on their own.
Subscriptions: Our subscriptions are due on the 1st April, however England Athletics have extended the renewal window for competition licences to 31st August, so LWAC are going to delay requesting payments until we can get a clearer picture of when we can resume training.
To help everyone at this difficult time England Athletics have launched Athletics @home https://www.englandathletics.org/about-us/athletics-at-home/which has lots of resources for all ages. Here you will find the 365 Athletics Handbook is free for a limited time, and for the 4 to 11 year olds there are activity ideas in the Funetics section. British Athletics have some downloadable kids activity sheets https://www.britishathletics.org.uk/news-and-features/fun-activities/ which may be of interest to our younger members in 515.
