Welcome to the Training Information for Season 2020. Please check back in to this page for updated information as the season progresses.
“Level C” Training Restrictions will be in place from Wednesday 1 July, 2020. All coaches must be familiar with the guidelines described in the Return to Football Guidelines – Level C document from Football NSW.
All coaches should now be aware of their responsibilities to host appropriate training sessions and must strictly follow the Covid-19 rules described on the “Return to Training” guidelines page below. You should also review the Checklist to ensure you and your team is compliant with these rules.
Please do not run coaching sessions that disobey these rules.
NWSF has provided us all with some suggested “Covid19-safe training exercises”. There are nearly 90 pages of training ideas you can use to hold an engaging, but safe training session for your teams.
The training schedule for both Ruddock Park and Oakleigh Oval is posted here. Coaches, if your team is not listed here, please send an email to CoachingCoordinator@thornleighsoccer.com.au and include the following information (preferably provide a couple of options).
Please note that Oakleigh Oval is almost at capacity, and remaining teams will probably need to train at Ruddock Park on Wednesdays or Thursdays as Tuesdays at Ruddock are also full.
Please stay off the baseball diamond AT ALL TIMES. The Baseball Club have invested a lot of time, effort and money into improve their diamond for the summer months and its essential that we as a football club respect that. If you see any kids playing on the diamond, please ask them to move away.
The floodlights at Ruddock and Oakleigh are scheduled to come on 15 minutes prior to the first training session of the day (or 5pm, whichever is later) and then turn off automatically 15 minutes after the last scheduled team to train.
If there are any issues with the floodlights, please contact one of the Floodlight team who may be able to help:
Note that if the floodlights are turned off, they can take up to 15 minutes before being able to be turned back on again.
The club has not yet filled this role for the year and it’s a very important role to ensure that all of our coaches are assisted the best possible way. If you’re interested in knowing more about the role, and think you can help out, even in a limited capacity, please reach out to a Committee Member or email CoachingCoordinator@thornleighsoccer.com.au for more information.
