Failte go





Dear Member.

Thank you all for your patience, we have been working hard to get things up and running again albeit in a restricted capacity.

Training Times can be found on our Website www.loughreaathleticclub.com and will be updated as much as possible with the latest training times and dates. We are still working with our Coaches to put times in place in all sections.

Unfortunately we have had to put in place a lot of protocols and guidelines and it is essential that everybody using the grounds comply.

Please do not come to Bushfield if you have been in contact with anyone that has or suspects that they may have Covid within the last 14 days. Or have returned from a trip abroad in the last 14 days.

Please do not attend if you feel unwell in any way.

All athletes have a responsibility to ensure that the club has up to date contact details, phone number and email for contact tracing if required.

All athletes have to pre-book their session on the on-line app 24 hours in advance using the following link-  https://membership.athleticsireland.ie/reservation.html .

An online tutorial is available at https://youtu.be/r-6JstS0qkY .

You will need your Athletics Ireland life membership number. This can be found on the confirmation email you received when renewing your membership. If you have any problems please contact us.

After booking you will receive a confirmation email you must bring this to Bushfield with you..

If you are planning on training with a group (max 15) you must complete booking for all training with you.

Please travel to Bushfield alone or with members of your household.

The clubhouse, toilets and dressing rooms are unavailable at the moment so please use toilet facilities at home and arrive in a training kit changing shoes in the car if required.

Please arrive no more than 10 minutes before your session having sanitised hands etc.

All athletes are to carry their own hand sanitiser and antiseptic wipes along with water and other personal equipment. There is to be no sharing of any equipment.

On arrival you will be asked to fill out a questionnaire please bring a pen with you. A coach will also take your temperature. Athletes who answer yes to any questions or have a temperatures over 38 degrees will be sent home. This can now be completed online when booking

When arriving at car park please try and park at a distance from other cars. If for any reason please allow time for other people to exit or enter their car.

Social distancing of 2m MUST be maintained at all times. If running in single file leave more than 2m between you and the person in front of you.

Remember cough/sneeze etiquette, no spitting or snot rockets please.

All rubbish bins will be removed, you must take all your rubbish with you to dispose of at home.

At the end of the training session please leave promptly.

If you witness anyone using Bushfield not following the guidelines please remind them and if necessary please notify the club.

If you become unwell please contact your GP and notify the club.

These guidelines may change as we get more advice from the HSE and Athletics Ireland. Hopefully in a positive way

Further information can be found on the Athletics Ireland website

Please remember that we are working with a reduced number of coaches who now have increased responsibilities and workload to provide training sessions. Due to this session format, times and frequency may be different from before.

Stay Safe

Yours in Sport
