Return to play - Clubs and Coaches

From Monday 19 July, England moves to Step 4 of the government’s ‘Roadmap’, the point at which most legal restrictions are being removed by Government. In turn, this means that the guidance provided by Triathlon England is also changed.

Please note that this guidance applies only to clubs and coaches operating within England. Any triathlon activity in Wales and Scotland must follow guidance provided for those nations.

In February 2021, the government published their four-step ‘Roadmap’ to guide the relaxation of restrictions across England. On Monday 19 July, England moved to Step Four.

The diagram below was presented by Triathlon England to demonstrate the implications for the sport in England at each step of the roadmap.

Whilst, at Step Four, most legal restrictions have been removed, there are elements of the previous guidance that have helped to provide a safe environment for triathlon activities.

We therefore set out in the guidance the elements to be retained. These are intended to promote good hygiene practice and support the wellbeing of everyone involved in our sport.

The guidance document outlines things that clubs and coaches ‘must do’, ‘should do’ and ‘could do’. These can also be viewed in the summary below.
