It has been a confusing and concerning year for all our members and families alike, we have been training in solitary and alone, but as things move on from our hugely successful Turbo challenge, Sinead’s Turbo sessions and our current running challenge we are now getting ready to meet clubmates again.
As a very social club the COVID period has been both difficult and challenging for people to stay focused on training for races that have been pushed out or cancelled, but thanks to our creative Clubmates, technology and some coaxing through inter Club competition we have managed to keep in touch with most of our membership.
As always the safety of our Club mates and families and the community at large has always been the focus of our dedicated committee and to this aim, most of our face to face training for the last number of months has been cancelled.
In order to return to club training, there are a number of steps the Club has to take to ensure the safety of participants going forward for all events for the foreseeable future.
The first is for any member to attend a training event they must first fill in a Training Attendance form. This form allows you as a participant self check your health and wellbeing in relation to COVID, it also enables the COVID Officer to keep track of people attending events should there be a COVID case amongst any club member or an associate of that member, this will aid in the contact tracing should it be necessary.
This form should be filled in on the day of the event before you meet up with any other clubmates. The form must be filled in for every event, training meetup or group swim.
The data collected from this form will be confidential to the COVID officer in line with Triathlon Ireland guidelines.
