KEEP GRASSROOTS FOOTBALL GOING THROUGH LOCKDOWN
On 31st Oct, Boris Johnson announced a national lockdown in England until 2nd Dec (no guarantee it will end then).
It is well known that outdoor transmission of the Covid 19 is minimal. All grassroots football clubs have guidelines & processes in place to make football safe.
This petition is to fight to keep grassroots football for YOUTH going throughout the new restrictions.
- Physical health maintained or increased during restrictions
- Mental health maintained or increased due to the social aspect of sport & looking forward to the activity each week.
- Improves parents mental health. Taking your child & watching your child will support adult mental health.
A really good article here on the risk of Covid transmission playing football football
