England Rugby Training Guidance 29/05/20

Welcome Back – KIND OF…

We hope all our members are safe and well during the current lockdown.

In line with Government and RFU Guidance we are delighted to let members know that, from Monday 1st June 2020 Mini and Junior age grades are able to take part in limited training activity at the club.

The following activities are permitted, however please ensure all players adhere to the limitations and restrictions.

Please note due to the evolving situation this advice may change suddenly.  In ALL cases Government guidance takes precedent.

 

Pitches

Please do not use the main pitch.  The groundsmen are currently treating, seeding and preparing the surface.  This includes various chemical treatments, which may cause harm if injected or come into contact with any open cuts / grazes.

ALSO remember the pitches have been out of use for a while.  Please ensure the area is inspected carefully for animal fouling (dog / fox etc),

The Astro is also out of bounds until further restrictions are lifted. Please report any sightings of people using the astro as we have made a number of adjustments to the security due to people breaking into it and causing damage. please report to info@maccrugby.co.uk 

 

Individual Activities

Individual training is permitted at the club (as has been the case for a while).  Please ensure you remain 2m from anyone else not in your household. 

Any equipment you use must be your own.

The clubhouse will not be open.

 

Group Activities

A maximum of 6 players from separate households may take part in small group non-contact training exercises once per 24-hour period.  Note any coach counts as one of the 6.

 

We recommend a maximum of 6 players per half pitch (with one on the grass at the front of the astro) – so a maximum of 7 groups are possible in this format. however if there are not that many on site it is ideal to do any repetitive exercise such as shuttles off the playing ares on the off field grass areas or dead ball areas. 

There is to be NO sharing of equipment (including balls, kicking tees, cones etc).  No tackle pads please.

Players can bring their own equipment however there should be NO equipment removed from the container (let’s keep that area sterile for now).

There will be no access to clubhouse facilities.
