The ECB have published guidelines which now allow ‘Small group cricket activity, training or fitness in groups of no more than six (6), whilst still maintaining social distancing of two (2) metres.
This means that we can hold small group sessions of five (5) children and one (1) coach.
It is permissible for two or more groups of six (6) to train at the same time provided they are kept separate, and social distancing and strict hygiene measures are observed.
Bronze Cricket Club intends to run 2 sessions on a Saturday morning starting on the 4th July. There will be four groups of five children at each session. These four groups will be positioned in each corner of the outfield to ensure no contact between groups.
The sessions will be 09:00 – 09:50am and 10:00 – 10:50am. The 10 minute interval is to ensure a safe changeover can take place between sessions.
Timeslots will be allocated when numbers have been finalised.
For Insurance purposes and to enable contact tracing all participants of these sessions need to become social members (as this is the cheapest available option). This is currently set at £5. There will be no charge for each individual session. Paying online via the website is the only option as cash / cheque payments are not allowed. This also ensures that the relevant details are collected for each participant.
If you are unable to comply with these rules then, unfortunately, you will not be able to attend the sessions.
