What we are doing to keep you safe:
- For each training session, players must sign up to their sessions through the link provided by their captains each week. This allows us to run Track and Trace and keep tabs of who played when.
- There will be 30 minute intervals between training sessions to provide the appropriate time to allow us to wash down equipment and ensure there is no crossover of training groups. Equipment also shall not be shared with each training group being given their own set of balls/bibs/other equipment.
- Players will enter through the gates next to the CFS and exit through the gates at the other end of the pitch by North Enterance.
- Please be aware, changing facilities and loos will be out of bands in the CFS.
- All players must complete this form https://forms.office.com/FormsPro/Pages/ResponsePage.aspx?id=NvkYmuiQxU--asEa8eSc6g-NqKCAUipGoe_luyiEaiZUMlE4NUVKRDZENzJGNUtNVEE5NVlXME9ETC4u&fbclid=IwAR3L3JvqmtfJ-_oDJs-8HhxgvKbYiu6ON6xIwx687PyMz9YTLjAbIIP0jho 
as stated by England Hockey.
