The BCPFA has been advised by Via Sport that the government guidelines for the next phase of return to sport will be provided to us in the coming weeks (or days). While the specific guildelines remain unconfirmed, we have been notified as follows:
When the review of our recommendations is concluded by [government] officials, We [Via Sport] will be adding an additional section to the existing Return to Sport Guidelines document. Our proposal includes revised guidance for activities involving contact, cohorts, competition, competition hosting, high performance camps and travel.
Once the revised guidelines from Via Sport are received, the BCPFA will move as quickly as possible to update our current Return to Sport Guidelines and make them available to the football community as soon as possible.
We are pleased to advise that 20 of 36 affiliated clubs have completed the BCPFA requirements for a return to training. A list of minor and junior clubs who have met the BCPFA requirements for return to sport can be found on the BCPFA website.
The BCPFA will continue to monitor the situation and work with our stakeholders and partners to help ensure the health safety of all our players, coaches, officials, volunteers and fans.
