To meet government restrictions, we require attendees to complete additional opt in and medical declaration forms and for a full medical risk assessment to be completed. Attendees will also have to undergo temperature checks upon arrival at the venue and complete daily online medical checks.
In order to be on the list to use one if these venues please complete the attached doodle poll and await forms upon completion of all BIS checks that you have been added to the list.

Unfortunately, at this time we are unable to allow synchro teams as the government have clearly identified that this is only allowed for Olympic Disciplines. We are still challenging the government in relation to synchro.
We are currently awaiting guidance on the travel restrictions on Welsh and Scottish skaters and will amend the documentation accordingly.
