We welcome today’s announcement from First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, confirming the movement into Phase Two of Scotland’s route map out of lockdown from Friday 19 June.
The extension of exercise guidelines in Phase One has allowed individuals to participate in outdoor non-contact boxing activities, providing benefits to physical health, mental health and wellbeing. It has also been uplifting to see wide participation in our ‘at home’ training sessions. This has displayed our community’s commitment to benefit from the physical aspects of the sport whilst protecting the health of the wider public, which remains our most pressing priority.
We are currently working with the Scottish Government and sportscotland to update necessary guidance documents, tailored towards phase 2, which will be published in coming days. Once the details of today’s announcement have been fully considered, we will ensure that the updated guidance documents are made available to our members.
In the meantime, please continue to stay safe and best regards
