Local sports associations are working on various strategies to get the ball rolling after they were given the nod to resume training sessions from this Monday.
With government having played its part in terms of allowing sport to resume, those who have satisfied all the requirements in terms of Covid-19 protocols have been allowed to go ahead and resume training sessions.
While not much has happened in the football sector where the Premier soccer league is understood to be waiting for clubs to submit their Covid-19 tests, other sports associations have hit the ground running.
The four Division One regions have since agreed to resume competitive action on the 29th of next month before taking a Christmas break on the 17th of December.
In swimming, the board chair Tracy Doorman says plans are underway to adjust to the new normal in line with Covid 19 protocols.
We are extremely pleased at the resumption of training especially in the sports competitions.
We obviously have been planning to return to a normal summer season, she said.
In basketball, Harare City Hornets Women Head Coach Andrew Chitauro revealed that their training session will resume next week.
We are waiting for the National and provincial association to let us know of the revised calendar, as when the games shall begin, for us, Harare City Hornets we’re most likely to start training next week, said Chitauro.
The Covid-19 era saw sport being put on hold to halt the spread of the pandemic but now it is up to the respective sports associations to get the ball rolling after being given the green light.
