Luctonians Rugby – Mini & Junior Parent Information

PLEASE FOLLOW THE RULES

The following guidance has been put in place to keep you and your children safe when you visit Mortimer Park for Sunday and weekday evening training – please read in advance

We look forward to welcoming you back, however

Neither you nor your child should come to Mortimer Park
if any member of your household is displaying any of the COVID-19 symptoms, ie:

• A high temperature
• A new, continuous cough
• A loss of, or change to, your sense of smell or taste

Your household should self-isolate in accordance with Government/NHS instructions
and arrange to be tested. You can do this by clicking HERE

 

Things your child needs to bring to each session

• Hand Sanitizer, Towel and Pre-filled Water Bottle (normal filling areas are not available)

Please DO NOT bring mouthguards to as there will be no contact rugby until further notice

 

When you get to the club

Social Distancing must be observed at all times
You and your children must avoid hugging and greeting one another as previously because it is a New Year

• Park in designated agegroup parking areas (displayed on plans below)
Also see below if you have children in more than one agegroup

• Go straight to your age group managers (next to designated training area – see plans below) and register before each session, for Track and Trace purposes

• Remain at the club (where possible – see below) for the duration of the training session

Click HERE for the Full Tier 3 Rules/Law

• The Clubhouse will be Closed

• To avoid gatherings on the patio, there will be no provision of food or drink

• Outdoors at Mortimer Park you may be in a group consisting of no more than 6 people (including children) and none of that group may mingle with members of another group

• Social Distancing must be observed at all times unless with members of your Household

The Rule of 6 is a matter of LAW
The exception is PLAYERS, whilst ON THE PITCH and engaged in their sport
Off the pitch, they must comply with the Rule of 6. This also applies to Children

This applies whether or not any person has been vaccinated

• Some areas will be closed or out of bounds until further notice including: The Play Area, the Changing Rooms, Grandstand (except toilets), Gym and, as already mentioned, the Clubhouse

• Parents will be asked to remain next to their child’s designated training area whilst they are at the club, unless they wish to use toilets, purchase refreshments or visit their other child’s training area. This is for two reasons:

Firstly, should training finish early for whatever reason, despite Luctonians being an extremely safe environment, it is still a Safeguarding risk to have a child left at the club unattended

Secondly, with the risks around COVID-19, we are asking parents to be the first people to respond to minor first aid incidents involving their children, so not to have to risk interaction with volunteer first aiders other than in more serious cases where specific first aid treatment is required

Please remember that Social Distancing must be maintained, even when out on the touchline

• Mini (U7-U12) parents and players are asked to leave the club following the end of their training to make room for Juniors (U13-U16) arriving. Juniors are asked not to arrive more than 10 minutes before the start of their training

Toilets – Please use designated toilet blocks in the vicinity of your training area

Parents and Players from U7s, U8s, U9s & U13s please use the Grandstand toilets

Parents and Players from U10s, U11s, U12s, U14s, U15s & U16s please use Cricket Changing Block toilets

Training Times

Mini Age Groups: 10am – 11.30am

Junior Age Groups: 12 noon – 1.30pm
Juniors are asked not to arrive more than 10 minutes before the start of their training

Arrival and Training Areas

Please see separate pitch plans for Minis and Juniors. One half of a full-sized pitch is required for maximum 20 players. It also shows you your designated car parking area

On arrival you should first register with your agegroup manager

In order to minimise movement around the grounds and interaction with other agegroups, please only park in your designated agegroup area. If you have players in different agegroups, then select one of the areas and make your way to each training area to register with the respective agegroup managers

Social Distancing must be observed at all times
with the exception of PLAYERS, whilst ON THE PITCH and engaged in their sport
