Training for under 18’s while in Tier 3

Posted on in News

From this Wednesday 9th December we will be running under 18’s classes only, due to current tier 3 restrictions. We will be at the temporary venue at Newman House (details in post below). We will continue with this up to Christmas (last lesson Wednesday 23rd December) and in the New Year (first lesson back Wednesday 6th January). This will be the case while we are in tier 3. If our area does change tier’s, I will update you on any changes to training.

Classes will be usual times, under 11’s from 6.00pm until 7.00pm, and over 11’s from 7.00pm until 8.00pm. Please note that parents will be able to bring their children to the normal entrance on the side of the hall, and will also be able to pick them up from there, but will not be able to enter the building – the only adults allowed in the building are the Taekwondo instructors and any building staff. Everyone should also follow the COVID-19 protocols as detailed in post below.

Also note I will still be running the Zoom classes every Thursday for anyone who wants to attend them (details in post below). Last Zoom class this year will be Thursday 17th December and will resume in new year from Thursday 7th January.

Finally, I wish everyone a merry, happy, healthy and safe Christmas and let’s hope the New Year is a good one.
