Petition Allow children to enter lockdown areas to continue to train with their existing sports clubs.
Child athletes, gymnasts, swimmers, footballers are being prevented from maintaining their training in their chosen sports with their clubs because of the local lockdown boundaries.
Clubs have introduced Covid safe procedures and children within the county boundaries are permitted to train whereas those outside the areas cannot. This means that sports facilities in Newport, Swansea and Cardiff are only available for the children in the county area, whereas children who live just 5 miles away are prevented from training. We would like the Senedd to permit child members to attend their sports clubs and to make it a “reasonable excuse” for entering a lockdown area so that children can continue to train during the winter months.
