Up to 30 juniors can take part in outdoor non-contact sport or exercise (training or intra-club competition). This number includes coaches.
3 Travel restrictions
People should stay as close to home as possible, in line with current travel restrictions, however some flexibility will be given to under 18s allowing parents to drive under 18s outside their local area for their regular organised group activity. Adults must stay within their own local area.
Please note that restrictions remain and risk mitigation continues to be paramount in the opening of club cricket – for full guidance please visit the Cricket Scotland COVID-19 page here.
