But there are still very strict procedures to be followed to reduce the risk of the spread of Covid-19, which include adhering to social distancing as well as hygiene measures.
For that reason, even though gatherings are now allowed of up to 30 people, small is beautiful.
For team sports, that means training in small groups, including a coach, with the focus on developing skills and fitness.
Close contact with others that would undermine the two-metre social distancing rule is still prohibited.
So, hockey, football, cricket and rugby teams are back in training, but not together as entire squads. Instead, in advice developed with and overseen by the respective governing bodies, football and hockey teams can train in small groups of no more than six.
It’s drills and skills, not tackling.
In rugby, the figure is slightly higher at 10 to 15 people but the emphasis is still on low level, non-contact, skill-based activity.
Hand sanitisers should be provided, the sharing of equipment should be kept to an absolute minimum, players are to have individual drinks bottles, and showering and changing is to be done at home.
You won’t be grappling anyone in a maul, getting close to them at a corner kick, or sitting with other rowing crew in boat just yet, but the techniques and skills for those can be safely practiced.
The return to sport in Wales has been overseen by a number of groups, involving governing body staff, medical experts, and others.
Chairing the group responsible for outdoor sports has been Beverley Lewis, chief executive of Welsh Triathlon.
“All outdoor activity is now open, which is great,” says Lewis. “It’s a case now of how each sport is managing the return of club activity for organised sport.
“Events, competitions and matches will come further down the line, but it’s currently about the degree to which sports can work within the social distancing rules and the level of facilities which are needed.”
Individual club members should seek information and guidance from their club officials, and those officials should take their lead from the national governing bodies for each sport.
