The South African Gymnastics Federation has released a set of rules and regulations for the safe return of the sport after being given the green light by the Department of Sport, Arts and Culture.
In a media release, SAGF outlined guidelines which clubs are expected to follow to ensure that gymnasts will be able to safely return to training following strict rules to contain the spread of Covid-19.
Only clubs who have been granted a Covid-19 Safe Certificate from SAGF will be allowed to open.
SAGF Registered clubs will be issued a monthly Covid-19 certificate which will indicate the maximum number of people allowed at the venue at one time based on social distance required in accordance to the Alert Level and a phased approach.
At the end of each month the clubs will be required to submit a copy of all of their logs collected for the month that adhere to the Covid-19 Health and Safety Regulations showing all particulars of each person together with their indemnity for a particular session.
This will then be submitted to their Provincial Compliance Health and Safety Officer who will sign off for the next month’s certificate to be issued to the club.
Gymnastics may run competitions in Alert Level 3 behind closed doors and will thus be scheduling events in the upcoming times at District, Provincial and National Levels following completion of updated COVID-19 Technical Regulations for each discipline.
No competitions are allowed take place in hotspot suburbs. This will be monitored and updated in accordance to information provided.
