Guidance for the return to Inclusive Skating during an anticipated period of Social Distancing
In preparing for returning to skating, working with rink managers and other Ice Sport's National Governing Bodies, a number of documents have been produced. These documents have been adapted for the purposes of Inclusive Skating programmes and disciplines. Review of this document and the Covid-19 risk assessment is currently being requested by DCMS and other relevant government departments to support a safe return for Inclusive Skating.
These documents will be supported by the risk assessment as adapted for Covid-19 and on-line training sessions and courses to support all participants to return to Inclusive Skating activities taking place at rinks. In addition, Individual, rink and activity risk assessments and the best practice contained within this document and the inclusive Skating Safety Policy will provide further guidance.
By following these guidelines as well as those from the government and health agencies and your rink and facility operator; all participants, including skaters and their families and carers, volunteers and coaches will be able to make informed decisions as to how and when they can return to skating activities.
