Following our communication with parents regarding the restart of football at South Park Rangers, we are here providing links to our club risk assessment, and the government and FA guidance that has informed our decision making. Please do not hesitate to contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com) should you have any questions.
Government Guidance from DCMS: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-guidance-on-phased-return-of-sport-and-recreation/guidance-for-the-public-on-the-phased-return-of-outdoor-sport-and-recreation
“People who play team sports can now meet to train together and do things like conditioning or fitness sessions but they must be in wholly separate groups of no more than 6 and must remain 2 metres apart at all times. While groups could practice ball skills like passing and kicking, equipment sharing should be kept to a minimum and strong hand hygiene practices should be in place before and after. Physical contact with anyone outside of your household is not permitted, therefore playing of any games (small sided or full) is also not permitted at this time. Avoid meeting in groups of 6 in busy or overcrowded areas, if it is so busy that it is not possible to maintain social distancing at all times.” (DCMS, 1st June 2020)
