Currently, the government guidelines state we should not be meeting in groups, and until we receive firm guidelines on progressing those rules, we don’t plan to review our current position. Instead, we ask that clubs and societies run all activities and events fully online. We appreciate that this is not ideal, but our main priority is to keep both students and staff safe.
UPDATE from the Scottish Government from the 12th March:
From now on "adults can take part in outdoor non-contact sport and organised group exercise in groups of up to 15 people"
This is the infographic for more general information on the update .
As a reminder, non-contact sport is “a sport or activity in which the participants are physically separated by playing rules such as to make it difficult for them to make physical contact during an activity. Examples include Tennis, Cricket, Boccia and Curling." This is the complete list of sports where you can see which sport is permitted and which is not. All updates in regards to your sport, please consult Sport Scotland's page.
If you are a fully non-contact sport, and are within your Sports Governming Body guidelines, please make sure that you follow the steps required! (For more information please consult the info document) This is the blank Sports Risk Assessment needed in order to continue operating as a club.
We are still here to support you. If you have any questions or if you are unsure about anything please get in touch with us on HISAactivities@uhi.ac.uk.
We will keep updating this page with further information.
