Coaching limits

  • All activity should be consistent with the government guidance regarding health, travel, physical distancing and hygiene at all times
  • Coached sessions should be limited to groups comprising of no more than three households (including the coach), and no more than eight people in total
  • Activity should not be run for more than two other households in a single day

Physical distancing

  • Physical distancing between players from different households, and between the coach and players should be maintained at all times

Equipment
