Further update from Lisa concerning First Aid during the coronavirus
Wednesday 11am – 1pm: I will be at the club for constructive talks (deploying social distancing rules). At present, Steve Sutton, David Spencer, Simon Oldfield and Tony Nelson will be joining me. If there is one more from Exec, Managers or Admin, please let me know asap. Obviously you don’t have to stay for two hours but I have to keep to a maximum of 6 persons. Thank you DH
For those managers considering resuming training: please refer to Welfare statement at the bottom of today’s page
Message from Tony Nelson
Under 9 Dream Team start training next Thursday at 6pm. We will begin with a half hour session but, if the children are enjoying and behaving themselves, we can extend the length.
Message from Alex Hebbes
Under 9s Global: we resume training next Tuesday 5.45 – 6.45pm. Marc and myself will take half each to keep within the rule of a maximum of 6 per group including the coaches.
BGV Adults message from David Spencer
Training will commence this Sunday 7 June from 10am until midday
The following players are attending the entire session:
James Campion (Harrison)
Players are to bring plenty of water as much of the session will involve some fitness training.
Rules: I have the changing room key and will only use the far changing room. We will keep it locked but if players need to use the toilet then at least it’s available. I will bring soap, hand sanitiser and paper towels with me. I will print off the FA Guidelines. I will make sure I have a mask and latex gloves for any first aid.
Apart from this and following the FA Guidelines, I cannot think of any other precautions we need to take.
We look forward to seeing you all.
UPDATE: Statement from Welfare Dept, BGFC
As you are all aware by now, some restrictions have been lifted and we are allowed to commence with training again but with this come restrictions.
We as a club need to follow all rules set up by the FA: ONLY 6 are allowed and that includes the coach.
By that coaches will have to obtain a time with Dave as you imagine we have several teams that would like to start training ASAP and some that feel it is too soon which is the Coaches decision and no-one should feel pressured into coming back if they feel it’s too soon.
This is still a dangerous time for everyone and we need to do our part to stay safe.
Please follow all the rules of the Covid 19 restrictions!
If a player or any other household member has any Covid -19 symptoms which are :-Temperature, dry cough, loss of taste or/and smell). DO NOT ATTEND TRAINING. Please stay at home and contact the Covid help line.
If you have these symptoms, however mild, stay at home and do not leave your house for 7 days from when your symptoms started (if you live alone), or 14 days (if you live with someone who has symptoms). You do not need to call NHS 111 to go into self-isolation.
If your symptoms worsen during home isolation or are no better after 7 days, contact NHS 111 online. If you have no internet access, you should call NHS 111. For a medical emergency dial 999.
Please avoid using public transport to attend training (training is not essential).
Please arrive and depart in your training kit as the changing rooms are not in operation.
Bring enough water/fluids to last the entire training session.
Bring any PPE that they may feel more comfortable using during training (mask, gloves etc).
At all times you must maintain a 2m distance to attend training from anyone outside your household.
No sharing of equipment. Eg boots, shin pads or keeper gloves. **Please bring your own**
Please do not bring your own football.
If you have your own sanitiser you’re welcome to bring this with you. If bringing drinks bags etc with you could you remember please ensure these are also at least 2m apart.
Can all parents please take their child’s temperature before bringing them to their training sessions. And also stay 2 meters apart when dropping their child off with their coaches. It is all our job to stay safe in these times and the more we do the safer we all will be.
There is strictly to be no contact football training just drills and so forth.
The clubhouse will still remain shut until the committee decides it is safe to open.
Good luck and stay safe out there.
Kind regards Lisa (Welfare)
