It’s been a very strange and uncertain time over the last few months, so we are delighted to announce we reopened Swords Boxing Club on Wednesday 5th August (with limited capacity and with a phased approach to return to training) but we are very excited to be back!Each member will be assigned a training group to facilitate this and members/parents will be contacted in advance of your groups return to provide all relevant information.Training sessions will be adapted to comply with existing Social Distancing measures (this means there will be no sparring, schoolboy boxing, pad-work, etc.)Only boxers who competed for the Club in the 2019/20 season will be allowed to resume training. Unfortunately, we cannot take on any new members until next year at the earliest.Adult and Kindergarten classes will not be recommencing for the moment.The following measures and procedures will be in place: We will have reduced and restricted parking spaces so parents are asked to enter the car park to drop off or collect members only. Parking for the duration of training sessions will not be permitted.Please arrive as close as possible to when you are due at the club (no more than 15 mins) and leave promptly after training. Members should only travel to training by car with members of the same household, so please refrain from car-pooling.Members should arrive ready to train as there will be no access to changing rooms. If possible, members should use toilet facilities in their own home prior to arriving at the club as access to club toilet facilities will be restricted. Please only enter the club through the front double-doors and exit through the side door (off the floor).Entry and Exit signs will be marked on the doors.Members should bring exact amount of subs due as there will be no change given. Please use the hand sanitizers provided, before, during and after training. There is also hand washing facilities available on the floor. Members should, ideally, bring a small bottle of hand sanitizer/antiseptic wipes with them to train. There will be no personal equipment provided by the club. All members will need to bring and use their own equipment only, no sharing of equipment will be allowed. For initial phases members will need their own kit bag containing gloves (14/16oz), hand wraps, skipping rope, towel, water bottle, exercise/yoga mat and hand sanitizer. Member’s names should be clearly marked on all equipment where possible.Any and all personal equipment left behind in the club after training will be disposed of immediately after the training session, there will be no ‘lost and found’ in operation.We have COVID-19 signage throughout the club and members must abide by all of the guidelines. Only coaches and boxers due to attend training will be allowed to enter the club. There will be no access for parents / family / friends / spectators etc. We ask any member displaying any symptoms of COVID-19 to stay at home and contact your doctor, please do not attend the club.
