Pre Event Info
To meet the current Covid-19 guidelines for running club training sessions it will be essential for everyone attending to sign-up ahead of the day and there will be a maximum of 30 people allowed at each session. An email with a link to a sign-up form will be sent by email later this week. Last date for signing up is Friday 20th November, 12 noon! The maximum number includes coaches and any non participating adult that accompanies a child. You will be required to supply personal details including a contact phone number to comply with Trace and Protect requirements. Please supply a phone number at which we could also contact you during the training session if needed.
To allow as many spaces as possible for people to actively participate in the training, parents that are not training themselves should drop their children off at the Potarch carpark, and there will be a meeting place with the coaches at one of the benches on the green next to the car park for participants only. Coaches will then walk with the participants to the training base in the forest, and bring them back to the meeting place at the end of the training. We will stay until all children have been picked up. A club training consent form will be required for any children being left alone at the session. If this is a problem for younger children that may not be confident to attend without a parent, please email me.
You will receive an email confirming your space at the training.

A comprehensive risk assessment will have been carried out by the organiser, but participants take part at their own risk and are responsible for their own safety during the event.
