The Scottish FA have released guidance to reflect the Government’s transition to Phase 3 – as a result, subject to approval from the SFA and ELC, we are planning for a safe return to football from w/c 27th July. We have worked hard behind the scenes to ensure proper measures are in place to provide a safe and secure training environment for our Coaches and players.
We have submitted a risk assessment and drawn up a series of guidance documents, with an aim to host a staged return to football. The Guidance determines one session a week, typically no longer than 40 to 45 minutes. As such, we are proposing a return to football for our 11-a-side teams initially.
We have gone through a planning phase and the return to training will see us move to the execute and monitoring phase. All going well with Government guidelines and if we (the Club, Coaches, Players and Parents) are happy with the protocols in place, we will reintegrate and introduce a training rota covering our younger age groups.
Our aim is to have all teams training at least once per week by w/c 10th of August.
The Committee and the Club’s Growth and Development Officer have been busy but diligent in ensuring a safe return to football while also being mindful of the fact we still want to provide a fun environment to play football.
