Level 4 Latest Update re Grassroots Football

This email has been sent to all League and Club Secretaries.

It is essential that clubs ensure the information it contains is passed on to all of your teams.

The Scottish Government and sportscotland have provided updated guidance following the First Minister’s lockdown announcement on Monday. We would ask all members to please read and familiarise yourself with this guidance:


While there is still some scope for under 12s to participate in non-contact group activity, the SYFA strongly recommends that clubs and parents give serious consideration to whether or not such activity is necessary, especially given the pre-existing break for small-sided teams. Should clubs decide to run any sessions for under 12s during this lockdown, it is essential that they adhere to all protocols as detailed within the updated guidance.    
Should the situation or guidance change, we will ensure to update you accordingly.

Kind regards,

Florence Witherow  
National Secretary
