Boxing Scotland would like to thank you for your patience during these difficult and unprecedented times. It has been heart-warming and encouraging to see clubs using their social media pages to reach out to the boxing community with training plans and some innovative activities for those self-isolating. Please keep this going and share your latest updates with us on our social media.
We have taken the decision to close the High Performance Centre until further notice, we will continue to answer any queries you may have via email firstname.lastname@example.org
Our RDOs have spent the past few days contacting clubs and will continue to do this until we have made contact with every single membership club across the country with a view to gaining an insight into your induvial circumstances and what support you require.
All Schools across Scotland have now closed and the most up to date advice has been for people to avoid all non-essential travel and practice Social Distancing. The health, safety and wellbeing of our volunteers, membership and wider community is paramount and we would ask that everyone adheres to the government and NHS guidance and guidelines
With this in mind Boxing Scotland has taken the difficult decision to cancel all membership boxing activities until further notice, this is in line with the latest guidance. To clarify, this means there should be no organised training activities either indoor or outdoor or any other type of boxing related event taking place.
We are aware that our membership is varied and each club is individual with their own unique needs and circumstances. The Scottish Government has created a business helpline which may be of use to our member clubs who rely on boxing activities for their income.
If you think that your club may benefit, contact the business helpline number on 0300 303 0660. The helpline will be open Monday to Friday 0830 hours to 1730 hours. Callers should select option one to speak to the COVID-19 team. Further information can be found here. https://www.gov.scot/news/covid-19-helpline-for-scottish-businesses/
We are continuing monitor the latest news, advice and information being sent by the Scottish and Westminster Governments as well as the NHS with regards to the COVID19 and will continue to provide updates and communications as soon as we can after the latest guidance has been issued.
If you have specific concerns about the corona virus you should contact the NHS https://111.nhs.uk/covid-19 for further guidance.
On behalf of everyone at Boxing Scotland, stay safe, look after yourself and your family. If you can, help with your neighbours and wider community while ensuring that you are keeping yourself and your family safe.
