It is important that the Club informs you of the following:

  • Any player that has underlying health conditions or is considered a vulnerable person should consult with a healthcare professional prior to returning to Small Group Training.
  • The rules around Small Group Training are strict, a maximum of 10 per group, this includes the coach.
  • Players MUST stay in their designated group/area and there is to be no rotating of coaches or players.
