SCDA Coronavirus (COVID–19) statement – 17th March 2020

In light of the UK government announcement today, the Directors of SCDA have taken the very difficult decision to cancel all events with immediate effect.

Many of our judges, helpers and drivers will be in the ‘at risk’ category because of their or their parents’ age, or with underlying health conditions.

The government advice has been to minimise social contact and non-essential travel, and the restrictions on the support of the emergency services means that the responsible decision is to take all action necessary not to further burden the NHS or risk members’ safety at events.

We thank all of our members, organisers, officials, volunteers and staff for their support during these unprecedented times.  We will continue to monitor the situation and will resume sporting activity as soon as we are able.
