Return to play guidelines

If you are not comfortable with returning to play please don’t feel any pressure to do so.

PRE-TRAINING SESSION

All players, coaches and spectators must undergo a self assessment for Covid -19 symptoms.

No-one should leave home to participate in football if they, or someone they live with, has any of the following:

– A high temperature (above 37.8°C);
– A new, continuous cough;
– A loss of, or change to, their sense of smell or taste.

Parents are asked to inform the club if their son/daughter has been asked to isolate.

Before entering the pitch players are required to apply hand sanitiser. (Players must use there own supply).

Players will ONLY be allowed to enter the training fields using the designated entrance. ONLY players are allowed to enter the training field.

TRAINING SESSIONS

Training Is Under FA guidance restrictions

We follow all guidance and restrictions provided to us by the Government and The FA. All coaches are briefed and will carry out all sessions in line with these guidelines.

Teams will train in their “designated zones”. These zones are separated in accordance to current government social distancing regulations. Football is considered a sport which does not have close contact

NO SHARING OF DRINKS. Sharing of equipment will be kept to a minimum and only where necessary. If bibs are used, they will only be used once and will be washed before another use.

NO close physical contact between players or coaches (this includes high-fives, fist pump, etc.).

POST-TRAINING SESSION

Sessions will run to time to ensure there is limited crossover of players and spectators at busy venues.

Players will leave the training session under their coach’s direction and will only be allowed to use the designated exit.

Upon exiting the training area, players should wash hands or apply hand sanitizer. Players proceed directly to their cars after training.

PARENT GUIDELINES / INSTRUCTIONS

Parents/Guardians, siblings, friends or players (before or after practice) will not be allowed to congregate in common areas at anytime.

All spectators are kindly requested to wear masks at all times – Young children may struggle to maintain social distancing. Please continue to do your best to help your child recognise what two metres or ‘one-metre plus’ look and feel like

Parents/Guardians, siblings, friends are recommended to stay in their vehicles. This precaution is until government regulations allow for larger groups.

Parents/Guardians must not leave the player and must remain at the facility for the duration of your player’s training session.

Players must not attend training if they or any member of the household feel unwell in anyway. All Government guidelines must be adhered to at all times.

All spectators are requested to complete the NHS Test & Trace app for each visit to one of our sessions.
