Mohale told Metro that the association has submitted a drafted plan on how it wishes to return to action under the prevailing COVID-19 pandemic.
“We completed drafting the document and submitted it last week to the Lesotho Sport and Recreation Commission (LSRC) and we are awaiting approval. The plan was drafted through the assistance of the association’s doctor, Dr Mahao Mapepe, our lawyer and the technical team,” he said.
Mohale showed that they have also requested permission to start teams’ training sessions in compliance to the COVID-19 regulations, while the LSRC reviews their proposal for approval.
“We requested to first be allowed to train jointly but outside the halls in spacious venues to observe COVID-19 regulations before indoor sports are officially given the green light,” he added.
Mohale said they also requested to train jointly outdoors to prepare their players for the African Union Sports Council Region 5 Youth Games set for 2021. The plan he said is to prepare the teams on time as players currently train individually.
“The preparation is strong. The players train individually, coaches visit them frequently to observe their progress and to guide them during the training sessions.
We initially selected 13 boys for the competition but did not select the ladies’ team because there were no girls’ boxers. We hope that by the time we go for the competition next year, we will have identified some who can build a team,” Mohale said.
