Hello everyone, sorry for the lack of updates since the club closed in late March.
We have had several requests in recent weeks about when the club will re-open as normal, unfortunately that answer isn’t as straightforward as many people think.
We have worked hard behind the scenes for the past couple of months trying to implement all the guidance from the Government, England Athletics and Burnley Leisure to allow Burnley AC to recommence training in some form whilst ensuring the club is as safe an environment as possible.
During this time, we have had trial sessions with very small groups to test our risk assessments and procedures robustly and we are now able to recommence training as a club but with limited group sizes.
Training days will remain as Monday and Thursday evenings from 6pm but will initially be for athletes in the over 11’s age groups who were fully signed up members during the 2019/20 season. The athletes in these age groups will be contacted directly asking them if they would like to return to training and advising them of procedures.
We know this is an unprecedented time and guidance is constantly changing so please look out for further updates. Thank you for your co-operation through this difficult time and we look forward to hopefully seeing you all soon.
