Dear Member clubs and affiliated organisations,

We have received notification from Welsh Government that following last Friday’s announcement by the First Minister, children will be able to travel out of, or into lockdown areas to participate in sport or other activities from 6pm tonight.

This change will apply to anyone under the age of 18, and they will be able to be accompanied by one responsible member of their household over the age of 18 if required for transport etc.

Coaches facilitating classes for under 18s can travel. Other coaches cannot.

The changes will apply to sport, as well as other activities such as dance and drama classes.

FAQs on what is permitted in local lockdown areas are available here :

Adults are not permitted to enter or leave local lockdown areas to participate in sport.

Please stay safe.
