On April 29th, the Swiss Federal Council decided that sports activites can resume, under strict restrictions, from May 11th, if the relevant national sports federation has created an accompanying return-to-sport concept for the protection of participants and their communities.
Swiss Surfing has accomplished the very challenging task of creating and submitting such a concept, with the support of a group of experts, within a very short deadline, and the concept has been accepted by the Swiss Government yesterday (BASPO/BAG).
We are confident that we all can take our own responsibility and work together on the implementation of these concepts, to create a fun, safe, and healthy environment for all surfers within Switzerland.
Here you will find current information from the BASPO on government financial aid in the field of sport, the planned relaxations, dates and deadlines, protection concepts and sports facilities.
On the Vitamin B page you will also find interesting and helpful information, factsheets and recommendations on current issues concerning Covid-19 and the associations.
