UPDATED GUIDANCE ON PERMITTED GRASSROOTS FOOTBALL ACTIVITY

NOTE: PLEASE GET PARENTS WRITTEN PERMISSION TO ALLOW YOUR PLAYERS TO TRAIN. THE YOUTH SECTION CANNOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR POTENTIAL LITIGATION AT A LATER DATE.

The FA has today issued further guidance to all grassroots football and informal football activity outside the professional game following The Government’s relaxation of COVID-19 restrictions from 1st June 2020.

Consistent with Government advice, published on Monday 1st June, the following outdoor football activity is currently permitted:

  • Playing football individually e.g. practice of individual skills or fitness activities;
  • Playing football with your family or other people living in your household;
  • Football training or fitness activities in groups of no more than six, keeping two metres apart at all times. Sharing of equipment should be kept to a minimum and strong hand hygiene practices should be in place before and after. Physical contact with anyone outside of your household is not permitted, therefore, playing of any games (small-sided or full) is also not permitted at this time. Avoid meeting in groups of six in busy or overcrowded areas, if it is so busy that it is not possible to maintain social distancing at all times.
  • Football coaches can now undertake small group sessions up to six people (including the coach) but are reminded to follow The FA safeguarding policy when coaching/working with children. This must include risk assessing the activities, gaining consent from parents/carers and ensuring you are in sight of another adult e.g. parent/carer or another coach and that the ratio of coach to different age-groups of children is appropriate – see download 5.5. For clarity, the additional parent/carer or coach is not included as part of the group of six but must remain in sight of the activity.
  • It is permissible for coaches to organise a training session that has two or more groups of six (including the coach) involved as long as the groups of six are kept separate, everyone is socially distancing, and strict hygiene measures are in place with any equipment.
  • Football coaches working with people with impairments must ensure they can adequately cater for any additional needs whilst still avoiding physical contact and maintaining social distancing. Individuals should follow Government guidance relevant to their own impairment or health condition.

Please be reminded, if an individual is symptomatic, living in a household with a possible COVID-19 infection or if you are classified as extremely vulnerable on health grounds, the guidance is that you should remain at home.

The FA continues to work closely with the Government and Sport England, and Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS) in order to provide good practice guidance for those responsible for delivering different aspects of grassroots football and we will share further information as soon as possible.

Team sports

People who play team sports can now meet to train together and do things like conditioning or fitness sessions but they must be in wholly separate groups of no more than 6 and must remain 2 metres apart at all times. While groups could practice ball skills like passing and kicking, equipment sharing should be kept to a minimum and strong hand hygiene practices should be in place before and after. Physical contact with anyone outside of your household is not permitted, therefore playing of any games (small sided or full) is also not permitted at this time. Avoid meeting in groups of 6 in busy or overcrowded areas, if it is so busy that it is not possible to maintain social distancing at all times.

The Football Association – Guidance on permitted grassroots football activity during COVID-19

May 13, 2020: The FA has today issued guidance to all grassroots football and informal football activity outside the professional game.

Consistent with Government advice, published on Wednesday 13 May, the following outdoor football activity is currently permitted:

      • playing football individually e.g. practice of individual skills or fitness activities;
      • playing football with your family or other people living in your household;
      • an individual can play football with one other person who is not from their household.
      • coaching an adult player one to one.

All social distancing guidelines must be followed.

Additionally, maintaining a grass or artificial football pitch is permitted, as long as social distancing and appropriate hygiene practices are adopted.

If an individual is symptomatic, living in a household with a possible COVID-19 infection or if you are classified as extremely vulnerable on health grounds, the guidance is that you should remain at home.

The following football activity is not permitted at this time, consistent with Government guidelines:

      • coaching a child (U18) from a different household one to one. In order to comply with The FA’s safeguarding policy, a child must have a parent/carer with them, which doesn’t comply with Government social distancing requirements;
      • two or more people from one household playing with one person or more from outside their household.

The FA will continue to work with the Government and Sport England in order to provide guidance to grassroots football as the Government’s COVID-19 recovery strategy moves to the next phase.

Coronavirus - All Football Halted!

Following an announcement from the Football Association the executive committee of the Surrey Youth League have taken the difficult decision to postpone all league games and league events cup finals etc. until after the Easter School Holidays at the earliest.

This action, which will be kept under constant review, has been taken due to the increasing numbers of clubs taking steps to isolate their players and staff because of the Covid-19 virus. The decision is being made purely on the number of cases requiring self-isolation and the impact on facilities. Given the obvious concern from clubs and parents, there is no alternative but for today’s action. However, we are committed at this time to trying to complete this season’s fixture programme and are now looking at ways to establish appropriate options to do so.

We will continue to monitor all Government advice with the situation under constant review, with the priority being the health and well-being of all. Further updates will follow in due course.

Introducing the Corinthian-Casuals Under 9s Reds!

September 2, 2019

U9s Reds End of Season Presentation and Foot Golf!

After a long, hard season which saw the Under Eights promoted to the 3rd division, it was time for the boys and management to have some fun! The team, plus the new players, graduating from the under Eights Blues, enjoyed a round of 9 holes foot golf at Horton Park. Team building is an important part of their preparation for the new season!

After the 9 holes which saw Team Corinthians victorious over Team Deadpool the players were presented with their end of season trophies and report on the past season.

Manager Paul Hill, delivered the End-of-Season report and presented trophies to all the players!

A significant characteristic of how the Under Eights performed throughout the season can be seen in their smiling faces!

Win, lose or draw, the players behaved impeccably and remained positive and cheerful throughout, bringing credit and distinction to themselves, their team, their manager and the Corinthian-Casuals Football Club.

The culture for development is all about having fun and progressing together as a team. As well as acknowledging individual performances during games and training, the under nines manager, Paul Hill, also recognises other contributions by players to the team throughout the season. Tasks such as clearing up, carrying equipment and always being helpful without being asked, were recognised. For their effort and support last season, individual awards were presented to Bobby N. and Charlie H.

The Club wish the Under Nine Reds all the success they deserve in the coming season!

We are proud to have such a great group of players continue to represent the chocolate and pink and all that is great about this club. We also recognise the immense voluntary contribution of the team's outstanding manager and coach, Paul Hill.

Good luck this season and...

VAI CORINTHIANS!!

CORINTHIAN-CASUALS F.C. YOUTH SECTION

PROVIDING GRASSROOTS FOOTBALL TO OUR COMMUNITY

FOR 40 YEARS

Corinthian-Casuals Football Club, Youth Section provides grass roots football to children from under six to under 18 years old (and u21!)

We promote the CORINTHIAN SPIRIT in all our teams and have been recognised by the Football Association as a 'CHARTER STANDARD DEVELOPMENT CLUB, for providing the highest standards of grass roots youth football.

All our teams play in the FA Award winning SURREY YOUTH LEAGUE and we play our home games at King George's Fields, Tolworth.

PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION!

As many Grassroots clubs and teams struggle to survive in these difficult times with ever increasing fees and a lack of affordable facilities both indoor and out, we call on government to impose a 5% levy so that the £billions at the top of the tree reach the roots, the starting place for every football player.
