Official Guidelines

FA Guidelines (updated 20 September 2021)

Our Club COVID-19 Officers are our Welfare Officers, Becky Hayes and Phil Heath.

Risk Assessment:

The Charlbury Town Youth FC COVID-19 Risk Assessment should be shared with opposition teams and the match officials before any match. Likewise, coaches should request the Risk Assessment(s) from opposition teams, read them and make any necessary adjustments that may be required.

Emergency Action Plans:

Protocols for training and matches

Self-assessment: Everyone (players, parents and team coaches/officials) should self-assess for COVID-19 symptoms before every training session or match.

No sharing: Players should bring and use their own labelled hand sanitiser and water bottle to each session. Equipment should not be shared where possible (including goalkeeping gloves and shirts, and bibs).

First Aid during COVID-19

If a player is injured the parent/carer should administer first aid.  However, if the injury is life or limb threatening a qualified first aider should intervene and administer aid. First aiders should ensure they have appropriate PPE with them e.g. face mask and gloves.
