U12 (2009)

Hi All,

We are training as normal on Wednesdays 5.45-6.45pm (on the all-weather pitch) & Sundays 10.00-10.50am on the grass pitch.

*Please adhere to the below protocols:

  • An online Covid Assessment Declaration Form must be filled in & submitted before every training session, please view this link. Failure to do so will prevent participation in the training session. 

  • Every parent must confirm their child’s availability on Teamer so that we can assign your child to a specific team & coaches prior to each training session.  Arriving to a training session without having accepted via Teamer creates issues & delays.

  • All players & coaches must arrive down 5 minutes before every training session & not any earlier, & leave promptly when the session is over.

  • Please make sure your child has their GUM SHIELD, a strict NO GUM SHIELD NO PLAY rule applies.

We hope to be playing matches (both home & away) in June, details tbc.

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact myself or Warren.
