Update – Our COVID-19 Guidelines

A reminder on the below for all parents and players –

• Everyone should self-assess for COVID-19 symptoms before every training session or match. If you are symptomatic or living in a household with possible or actual COVID-19 infection you must not participate or attend;
• Players should sanitise hands before and after training session; if possible they should bring a santiser with them at training
• Players need to ensure their water bottles are labelled, coaches will be reminding players to social distance as much as possible when not training and for scheduled breaks etc
• As a club we keep a record of all attendees at training sessions, including contact details, to support NHS Test and Trace;

As part of this, we have taken the decision to not play any friendlies or games with external teams until September as part of these guidelines. We may hold in-house games between age groups as long as these do not exceed 30 participants.

We will not be bringing our Goalkeeping or Physiotherapy staff onsite until September due to the fact these staff members normally work with multiple age groups and represent a higher risk of cross-infection between teams.

No trialists are allowed on the premises unless they have fully completed a “Request to Trial” form which must include contact details for a parent (if possible we require two contacts). This information is used as part of our guidelines to support the NHS Test and Trace protocols.

Please ensure that you follow all UK Government Guidelines, this includes restrictions on quarantine when returning from certain countries etc.

We ask for all parents support in these matters to ensure we are able to provide a safe environment for our players.
