Many of you will no doubt be aware of further changes announced by The Scottish Government on Monday 4 January related to COVID-19.

In general, this places all judo clubs under the direction of the Tier 4 guidance, until at least January 31, outlined in the JudoScotland Strategic Framework Guidelines with the following notable exceptions or amendments:

  • To minimise the risk of spreading the virus you must stay at home as much as possible, only leaving home for an essential purpose (Scottish Government Stay at Home Guidance).
  • Outdoor non-contact sport and physical activity only is permitted for children aged 11 years and under in groups of up to 30 people.
  • In such circumstances the number of coaches involved must not exceed household limits i.e. maximum of two for any given session.
  • Outdoor Non-contact sport and physical activity is permitted for those aged 12 years and over but is limited to a single household group or a maximum of 2 people from up to 2 separate households (including the coach).
  • All travel for club led activity should remain local i.e. within your Local Authority area.


Member clubs on Harris and Orkney should adhere to Tier 3 guidance in keeping with the JudoScotland Strategic Framework Guidelines.
