Pre-screening

All participants and workforce should take the pre-screening questionnaire before leaving home –and keep the results for 21 days.

Members, coaches and volunteers must NOT attend if they:

Have Covid-19 symptoms. List of symptoms can be found here https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/symptoms/

Have someone in their household who does have symptoms and is in isolation

Have been asked to remain at home by the UK Government track and trace system, or those that are in the clinically vulnerable group. Government advice is detailed here.

 

Pre-screening questionnaire

Before leaving the house to participate in activity, please check you:

Do not have symptoms of a high temperature (feeling hot, feeling cold, shivers, feeling under the weather).

Do not have a new persistent cough.

You have not got a loss of taste or smell.

You have not been in contact with a person with suspected COVID-19 within the past 48 hours.

You have not been advised to self-isolate due to a third party from another setting (i.e. school) that has been infected with COVID-19.

No-one within your household has COVID-19 symptoms as outlined above, which would require the whole household to go into isolation as guided by UK Government.

Individuals must not attend a session if any of the above are true.

 

Meet and Greet

We have always offered a meet and greet service for members for our football sessions from Leyton Tube Station. The current situation makes offering this service a challenge in the short term. Therefore, we would advise players to safely make their own way to the Score Centre wherever possible. If this is not possible then arrangements can be made. We will discuss guiding requirements with those players that have booked in to play 24 hours before the session, via email or text.

If guiding does occur to and from the station, this may be completed at differing times and may include verbal guiding.

The Score Centre requires players to enter the facility as a group and depart from the facility as a group. We ask that players, coaches and volunteers wait safely outside the front doors. Please note, the Score Centre includes other services, including a nursery, and other people may be waiting outside. 

Toilets and changing rooms

Only the toilet areas are in use and the changing rooms are closed, therefore we recommend that you get changed before leaving home and have secondary clothing to wear once training has finished. Lockers are available if required.


Hand Sanitising

There are several hand sanitising stations around the venue, but we ask you to bring your own, and encourage you to take advantage of drink breaks for regular hand sanitising. There is a wall-attached hand sanitising station on the right hand side as you enter the building. You are likely to be instructed by the centre staff to use this on entry.

Centre Changes

There is a one way system onto the courts, and the Score Centre have been asking customers to leave via the fire exits on court. Please not that this is quite dark and therefore please take extra care.

Spectators are not allowed.

Face Covering

It is not a requirement to wear a face covering at the Score Centre and advice is not to wear one whilst playing football, please do however feel free to wear one where you feel that social distancing is not able to be maintained. Face coverings will be required if guiding occurs to and from the tube station.

 

Equipment

Please ensure you bring your own equipment to use. Please ensure that footballs and other equipment is sanitised regularly.

 

Opt-in notice

By attending football sessions, you are personally opting into the session on the basis that you have received relevant information to make an informed choice. If you feel you do not have all the information required, please request further information, or do not attend.

Any person found deliberately or consistently breaking the guidance at the discretion of the Sport Leads or Metro Blind Sport staff set out by Metro Blind Sport will be asked to leave the activity with immediate effect.

In this instance details will be passed onto Metro Blind Sport as the organisation responsible for the measures in line with Government advice.

Summary

We look forward to seeing you all again, we hope these measures will enable you to enjoy the sessions, if unsure about anything please ask using the contact details below.
