North West Charity of the Year

Young people, their safety and their best interests are at the heart of everything we do, and with this in mind we are still operating at reduced capacity on sessions to minimise the risk of Covid-19.  

When on session members must follow our respect policy and adhere to social distancing guidelines.  Members who are 12+ and are not exempt should wear a face mask when they are not participating in sports.
