Covid -19 Memo
Statement from the Corinthian-Casuals FC
Youth SectionAugust 3rd, 2020
The Youth Section is pleased to announce a return to training but under strict observance of the FA guidelines.
August 25th 2020
Statement from the Corinthian-Casuals Youth SectionJuly 4th, 2020
On the advice of the Youth Section’s Welfare Officers, the committee has decided that due to the continuing uncertainty regarding the Covid-19 Pandemic, no teams should be training at this time. It is simply not safe, and there are no measures that can be taken to guarantee complete safety for our players, managers, coaches and their families.
Any infringements of this decision will be seen as unauthorised and will not be supported by Corinthian-Casuals F.C. Youth Section. Any unauthorised return to training will be judged as contrary to the recommendations, and managers and parents must take full responsibility for any infringements of this decision.
We are constantly monitoring information from The Government, Department of Health and Social Care, Public Health England, Kingston Council, the Surrey Football Association, the Football Association and the Surrey Youth League. We will regularly review our decision and issue notifications once it is safe to resume. However, any resumption of training or games will be subject to strict adherence to the Corinthian-Casuals Youth Section Covid-19 Training Guidelines(YSTG) and the Risk Assessment (YSRA).
We are in the process of creating the YSRA, and it will be distributed as soon as it is ready. (See F.A. Guides below). The YSRA and YSTG will contain guidance on safely returning to training when the time comes. It will provide clear rules and measures that each team will have to follow once training or matches resume.
The YSRA and YS TG will be specific to Corinthian-Casuals and will contain information about our club, our facilities and our teams. It will include guidance such as:
Promoting proper hygiene by providing hand sanitiser at the entrance and exit of our pitches
Advice that each individual player brings hand sanitiser to training and events, marked with their own name
Providing additional waste facilities and removal and disposal of contents at the end of each session
The cleaning of goals, lighting and other communal equipment and the necessary cleaning procedures
Advice on avoiding congestion at training or games and have peak-use times reviewed to stagger activities throughout the week/ evening
Programme all activities with sufficient time (e.g. A minimum 10-minute window) in between bookings, to avoid clustering of groups on pitch-side or in the car park before or after sessions
Underlining the importance that teams should arrive and depart punctually.
Recommendations to negotiate flexible kick-off times with opponents to accommodate distancing measures
Adjusting timings to accommodate the longer operating hours and remaining within those permitted by our local planning authority and the F.A.s and the Surrey Youth League rules for youth football.
Preparation for spot-checks on match or training sessions by the club, the League, the F.A. or the Borough Health Officers. We can expect random checks to be made regularly by health officials
You must understand that things will be different when we return to football. You must be prepared to deal with the differences. Being prepared will allow us to smoothly return to football and safely re-open of our facility. Please read the YSRA carefully, taking time to consider how the guidelines will affect your team, for training, match day and social activities. Not being prepared may have severe consequences for your team, players and families.
We hope to establish a group responsible for implementing our YSRA & YSTG. This group will offer support and advice to all our teams.

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.
Casuals News - April 2020
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...

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.
Managers and Coaches
