Coronavirus - COVID-19 Update

Hello ATAC Members,

We fully appreciate that there are lots of messages and advice flying around on COVID-19. After thorough discussion, our current position is that all club scheduled activities for all age groups are cancelled until further notice. We will take a fresh view as things unfold. If you want to train together, feel free to make that decision as individuals and organise as individuals.

We are obligated by our governing bodies to send out similar messages, detailing their positions which still may change at any time ....
