Relaxation of COVID restrictions

Monday 19 July 2021

As we move out of the lockdown restrictions that have been in place for many months we are sure you all want to get back to playing stoolball with more freedom. We have identified some key guidance for you from Sport England:
  • Restrictions have been lifted on numbers participating in activities indoors and outdoors.
  • Stoolball can take place without set restrictions.
  • All sports facilities can re-open including the ancillary services.
  • Capacity limits have been lifted.
  • Organised sports can have uncapped spectators.

Please note however you must check the current rules at any venue they use as they may well put in place their own temporary regulations as they see fit. We ask you to kindly follow those regulations. 

Note further guidance is available on the Government website including how to reduce transmission when you are exercising. 

If you would like help with temporary regulations you would like to put in place for your club please let us know and we can help you establish them.

The COVID-19 pandemic has threatened our personal safety, disrupted our daily routines, uprooted our lives and shaken our world. It isn’t easy to maintain mental wellbeing, personal resilience and optimism when we are surrounded and affected by such unsettling uncertainty.

For anyone that needs to find hope and support through the power of shared experiences, Sussex Cricket has developed its new Mental Health & Wellbeing Hub, a free, online resource designed to help.

Completely free to use and totally anonymous with no registration required, the mobile-optimised platform has been created with the support and approval of Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust and developed in partnership with Frog Systems.

Stoolball England “Train the Trainers”

Monday 7 December 2020

On Sunday 7th & Sunday 14th November, Stoolball England launched their new coaching course. Because of COVID-19 restrictions, these were via an online meeting.

Stoolball England’s aim is to develop a team of freelance Coaching Trainers who will deliver exciting, creative and inclusive stoolball sessions. The training programme will enable Coaching Trainers to deliver course content in a classroom environment as well as practical coaching on the ground. Coaches will develop and deliver stoolball sessions at their own pace and fitting-in with their work-life balance. Coaches’ own continuing professional development (CPD) will be expected and encouraged by Stoolball England. Coaching Trainers will help develop this exciting, new programme.

We're backing UKCoaching's Great Coaching Pledge

Friday 2 October 2020

We’re doing this by working with our coaches to help plan their sessions to follow our NGB COVID guidance.

Coaching is about people – and a great coach can change a life.

Over the last few weeks, the government has approved the restarting of outdoor sports which includes stoolball, as long they are practiced within social distancing guidelines but indoor facilities, such as clubhouses, remain closed.As we're expecting government guidance to emerge soon on reopening indoor facilities safely, it's important we prepare for those changes now as much as possible.
