    Assam allows Non-Contact Sports activities

    Physical contact of any form shall be avoided as part of training routine, for example handshakes, high-fives, tackling, sparring etc

    Guwahati:  Sports enthusiasts and athletes in Assam can now train in more outdoor sports activities at playgrounds and sports complexes as the state government in its latest relaxations on Sunday allowed resumption of non- contact sports from Sunday evening till August 14.

    The latest order said, “Non contact sport in open space with social distancing shall be allowed.”

    Sources in Dispur said that it would allow for sports activities as per the Sports Authority of India (SAI) guidelines.

    Earlier, SIA in its SOP said that resumption of non-contact live sporting events like cricket, tennis, badminton, table-tennis etc. with athletes and staff practicing social distancing guidelines specified by government and WHO.

    “These events should be restricted to a very few locations with lower manpower and may be played in sanitised empty stadia, thereby minimizing travel, and minimizing the congregation of fans,” the SOP said.

    As per the SOP, all individuals who participate in, and contribute to, sport and recreation will be considered in resumption plans, including those at the high performance/professional level, those at the community competitive level, and those who wish to enjoy passive (non-contact) individual sports and recreation.

    Athletes and staff shall be screened before being allowed access to common field-of-play/training facilities.

    All personal training equipment belonging to an athlete shall be disinfected while the athlete is inducted into the training centre. Physical contact of any form shall be avoided as part of the training routine, for example, handshakes, high-fives, tackling, sparring etc.

    “Spitting and clearing of nasal/respiratory secretions on the pitch or at any place within the facility other than toilets shall be prohibited.  Training shall be planned in a manner that prevents the need for physiotherapy or recovery post-training,” it added.

    Use of swimming pool shall be avoided, SAI SOP said.
