The FA has now permitted contact play, assuming certain procedures are in place and guidance followed, which the BAFC team have been working on over the last week.
Please find BAFCs updated guidance for parents below and the FA code of behaviour. These should have already been received from your coaches.
For all parents :
Please ensure you have read these carefully.
If you are happy for your child to return to contact training & matches please reply to your coaches message stating ‘I have read the BAFC guidance for parents and FA code of behaviour and agree to follow the guidance. I consent to my child returning to contact training and matches. I agree to completing a COVID-19 self-assessment on myself and my child prior to attending any training sessions and matches.’
Your child is not obliged to return to contact training or matches during the current pandemic and we will support whatever decision you make.
Feel free to drop any of the coaches a private message if you have any questions.
