Latest BR Advice issued this evening here – text below.
Advice for Clubs
Following today’s announcement by the
Government, British Rowing advises that all Affiliated Clubs should cease all
club-based activity as soon as reasonably possible tonight and not reopen
tomorrow until further notice. This advice will be reviewed, on an ongoing
basis, in line with Government guidance.
In addition, British Rowing is now in the
process of closing the National Training Centre at Caversham and transitioning
our athletes to home-based training programmes.
- How will British Rowing
support clubs during this period?
Our Club Support team is
still available via the usual channels. Any clubs who require help or
support during this difficult period should contact email@example.com
in the first instance.
- How can we help support our
members during this time?
We recognise our
responsibility to help keep the nation and the rowing family active and
healthy even in these difficult circumstances. We are working to provide
content (workouts etc.) and ideas to help individuals keep fit and active
away from rowing clubs and at home and to help keep a connection between
your members. To start with, our Go Row Indoor newsletter will become a
weekly email from next week with workouts both on and off the machine –
further details of other content and initiatives will be released shortly.
- What about the financial impact of closing our club for
an unknown period?
We are very aware that closing
for this extended period could cause financial concerns for some clubs. As
the situation becomes clearer, we will be working to signpost any funding
or advice which could help your club. In the meantime, if this
applies to your club, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
to let us know.
