Equipment sharing, including balls, is permitted, although should be kept to a minimum and strong hand hygiene practice must be in place at all times.
Two or more groups of six may train provided they are kept separate. RFU guidance is that there should be no more than four groups per full pitch and social distancing and strict hygiene measures must be observed.
Parents/carers observing a training session at a distant from a safeguarding perspective is permitted without them being part of the participating group.
While multiple small groups can engage in training at the same site, clubs must risk assess this properly and ensure that safe and adequate distancing between groups is strictly observed.
People should avoid mixing with too many others from outside their household in a short space of time and care should be taken at all times as there is a continued risk of infection.
As physical contact with anyone outside the same household is currently not permitted, the playing of any games remains suspended.
MRUFC Coach suggestion – have a bucket and washing up liquid to regularly wash your equipment throughout the session. The tap outside Priory Cafe is available for water. Players should wash their hands before training and at any other opportunity.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
The clubhouse will not be open.
