The Apollo Partnership Trust is dedicated to ensure the protection and safety of all users of our facilities. At all our sites we have rigorous risk assessments in place which are shared with our clubs/groups and, where applicable, we hold the risk assessments of all club/groups.
The cleaning regime across all sites has been increased considerably. Touchpoints along access routes including goal posts are cleaned every morning, during the day and at the end of the school day prior to clubs/groups attending for evening sessions.
Access routes to individual facilities have been carefully thought out and, where appropriate, a one-way system is in operation. All clubs/groups have been sent links to videos to share with their participants showing the access routes and what to expect when they arrive on site.
Where toilet and changing facilities have been reopened a through cleaning programme has been put in place.
We advise all clubs/groups to follow the guidelines for social distancing and hand hygiene and all participants to bring their own hand sanitiser. Hand sanitisers are also available on site at appropriate entry points.
At our indoor facilities, ventilation systems follow guidelines, participants are requested to wear masks until the start of their activity and spectators are not allowed indoors and are discouraged at outdoor football training/matches.
The NHS QR posters are clearly displayed and available to all users.
With all participants respecting their own and each other’s safety we have successfully reopened our facilities for all to enjoy.
