We are ready to commence Junior training at MPSC with the release of the Return to Training conditions from Football Victoria.
MPSC will be trialling return to training guidelines initially with the following age groups. U13 (Vlado), U15 (Raul), U16 (Walter), Senior Women (Ilidio and Phil) and Senior Men (Jason, Pietro and Don). Training for these age groups will be on Tuesday the 26th of May and Thursday the 28th of May. A review of these training sessions will be completed after these 2 sessions with a view to adding further teams in the very near future.
Parents dropping their children off are requested to stay off the field, ideally in the car-park. As we are currently having the youngest age group of U13, this should not be an issue. All players are required to reply to their coaches to confirm attendance at training to be able to train.
These conditions relate to the return of football training in the current state of restrictions and may change as restrictions change.
The major points are:
10 players plus one coach per half-pitch. Unwell players MUST stay home. No sharing of water bottles. No spitting. A minimum 15-minute period between one session and the next. A record of attendees must be kept. Players should not be on the field any more than 10 minutes before the start of the session. Players should leave the field immediately at the end of the session.
You can read the full document and statement on Football Victoria’s website. Link below.
NOTE: IT IS EXPECTED THAT ALL PLAYERS (OR THEIR PARENTS) HAVE READ AND UNDERSTAND THE CONDITIONS BEFORE RETURNING TO MPSC TRAINING.
