Following on from the FAI’s announcement around a return to football, the Management Committee has carefully reviewed the guidelines and the logistics around implementation. There are a number of items that need to be taken into consideration before we can get back to football in a safe environment.
The appointment and training of Covid Compliance Officers will be of paramount importance to ensure all parents, players, managers and coaches will play their part in ensuring we follow the guidelines.
Given the current social distancing guidelines, we will most likely need more facilities. We are unsure at this stage when the all weather facilities are reopening and when they do, we need to ensure that they are safe to do so.
Given these circumstances, we have decided that the earliest date training may safely resume is the 29th June rather than the 15th June as outlined by the FAI. This will give us time to ensure we are properly prepared and be able to ensure that all guidelines are in place and hopefully adhered to by all participants.
We will have to stagger the number of teams training over the first few weeks to make sure that we can implement the guidelines correctly. Please bear with us as we work through this.
We will keep you informed as to progress and once again thank you for your patience.
