How Little League Soccer is Providing Safe, Social Distanced Youth Football Training
Since returning to outdoor training at The New Camp last weekend, we’ve had a number of questions about what the ‘new normal’ Little League Soccer training looks like.
Take a look below at the steps we’ve implemented to ensure players can enjoy their return to football in a safe, secure environment that complies with the latest government advice and guidelines.
1. Group Size
Training groups are kept to a maximum of 6 players per coach. This is well below the 9 players to 1 coach maximum allowed by the Ministry of Sport and means each player receives a tremendous amount of attention and guidance from their coach.
2. Individual Training Space
Players have their own individual space of approximately 700 square metres at The New Camp in Bandar Utama, meaning everyone is extremely well socially distanced! Players are assigned these boxes the evening before their session starts and informed of where to go by email.
3. Carefully Planned Drills
All drills and exercises are planned to ensure players are socially distanced and to minimise interaction between participants. But that doesn’t mean there’s no competition – our coaches have done a great job at creating sessions that keep the usual Little League Soccer fun even without close contact between players.
4. Gaps Between Sessions
We’ve ensured a 15 minute ‘turnaround’ window between classes allowing one group of players to leave the field before the next group arrives. U6 and U8 players train 8:00-8:45am; U10 and U12 train at 9:00-9:45am; and U14 and U16 players train at 10:00-10:45am.
5. Temperature Checks
Temperature checks are in place for every individual entering the field. If a player’s temperature is above 37.5C they will be asked to return home immediately.
6. Check In and Sanitiser Stations
Sanitiser stations are placed at both entrances to The New Camp.
Don’t miss out – limited slots available for each training session!
