CORONA info page

We are happy to be able to continue to do sport in presence.

For this we still need your help.

  • Please stay at home if you have any symptoms of a cold and thus also protect the other participants.
  • Please be there on time and approx. 5-10 minutes before the start of the course so the group can start together, as the 2G proofs (from 27.11.2021 extended to 2G-Plus - see press release) will be checked by the trainers at every training session before entering the venue.
  • Look out for each other and remind each other to wear masks when you are not exercising.

If you do not wish to or are not yet able to take part in a physical activity, there is still an alternative online sports programme IN*SEITenwechsel.

If you have any questions, please contact us at info(at)

2G regulation (from 15 November 2021)

From 15.11.2021, 2G is mandatory for all those who do sport in the sports hall! Proof of 2G will be checked and documented by the trainers before entering the hall.

Persons who fall under the 2G regulation must
a) have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (at least 14 days have passed since the last required vaccination) or,
b) have demonstrably recovered from COVID-19 disease (at least 28 days and not more than 6 months after a positive PCR test result).

PCR tests: Samples are taken by medical staff - analysis by laboratories.
POC tests: rapid test (at the test centre or as a self-test in a four-eye procedure).

Also covered by the 2G scheme are:
c) Persons under 18 years of age who can prove their own negative test (POC test not older than 24 hours old, PCR test not older than 48 hours) and,
d) persons who can prove by means of a medical certificate that they are not vaccinated for medical reasons AND can prove their own negative test (PCR test not older than 48 hours - a POC test is not sufficient here).

All persons under 18 years of age who are regularly tested as part of their school attendance do not need an additional test, the presentation of the student ID card is sufficient as proof here. For teachers and students over the age of 18, the 2G rule applies and people do not automatically meet the 2G requirements (unless the person is already vaccinated/recovered or cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons).

Children up to 6 years of age are exempt from any verification requirement.

Sports in sports halls
The 2G rule applies to sports in sports halls. Participation in training or competition in halls is therefore only permitted for persons who fall under the 2G rule described above.
This means that all other persons present in the sports hall (trainers, coaches, athletes, spectators) are subject to the 2G rules without exception.

Proof must be provided upon entering the sports hall.
If a person cannot provide proof of 2G, that person cannot be denied access to the sports hall.
Access control is carried out by the trainers.
The effects of the 2G regulation are:

  • the minimum distance no longer has to be observed
  • the use of the changing rooms is possible without any restriction on numbers
  • the obligation to wear a mask outside of sports practice remains as before.

Attendance documentation
Attendance documentation will continue to be kept, even under 2G conditions!

Outdoor sports (e.g. football)
Outdoor sports remain unchanged - i.e. they can still be practised without any proof of
without any proof of vaccination, recovery or test.
We still recommend that you adhere to 3G outdoors.

Please note that as soon as you enter functional buildings - including changing rooms - 2G applies.
The effects of the 2G regulation are:

  • the minimum distance no longer has to be observed
  • the use of the changing rooms is possible without any restriction on the number of people.
  • the obligation to wear masks outside of sports activities remains as before.


Hygiene concept

There is no longer a hygiene concept for sports halls, uncovered sports facilities and spectator operations at competitions.

We continue to follow the guidelines of the Berlin Senate. You can find the latest valid Ordinance on Measures Required to Protect the Population from Infections with the SARS-CoV-2 Coronavirus  in various languages at: Link

When taking part in our sports activities, please always observe the latest regulations of the Landessportbund Berlin: Link (german)

Hygiene frame concept for fitness and dance studios, weight rooms and similar indoor sports facilities

There is still a hygiene concept for fitness and dance studios, weight rooms and similar indoor sports facilities.
We adapted this concept from the LSB: Link (german)

Attendance record

Attendance documentation

The trainers keep an attendance record. In case of Corona suspicion, the person must be reachable via the current contact details. The current address must always be available in the group list and be checked/updated by the trainers. If the names you have chosen yourself do not match the group list, please add an e-mail address or the club membership number so that we can assign the person as quickly as possible. Here you can find a template as an example of how such an attendance list can be used.

Hygiene concept public Swimming baths

Signs of a cold: In case of signs of a cold or illness (even small ones), participation in the training is not possible.

Admission controls / attendance lists: Trainers are required to document attendance and send these to the Seitenwechsel office at the end of the training.

Mouth-nose protection: Obligatory for participants up to the edge of the pool, the trainers for the entire training time, according to the hygiene concept.

Minimum distance: In all areas of the indoor pool, the specified minimum distance of 1.5 m from other persons must be observed.

Hand disinfection: There are dispensers everywhere. Please disinfect your hands upon entering and while in the pool.

Bathing shoes: Barefoot participation is not permitted. Please remember to bring bathing shoes.

Showers/changing rooms: These can be used, provided that the distance regulations are observed. Please pay attention to the notices.

Hairdryers: Can only be used individually according to the specifications of the baths. Please ask in the respective bath.

Corona tests: Testing is compulsory. Vaccinated and recovered persons can, after presentation of appropriate proof, use all offers, which are otherwise bound to the presentation of a negative test, i.e. this group of persons does not have to be tested regularly, but this is recommended!

Please always pay attention to the information and notices in the baths and follow the instructions of the staff on site.
