We train on a Friday night

We train in small groups, grouped by ability

Apart from the U8s, all training groups are made up of children from two school years – U10s, U12s and U14s. To ensure that each player benefits from focused training, training groups are split into smaller groups based on ability, as determined by the coaches, during the training sessions. This ensures that each player develops to the best of their ability and at their own pace.

We’re responsible for players when they’re on the pitch

Players should line up by the pitch five minutes before the start of training, with their gum shields, shin pads, sticks and water. It would also be really helpful if players visit the bathroom before heading out on the pitch. Coaches are unable to accompany players to the toilet during training or matches. The Club is not responsible for any child who is on a pitch, (eg. before training starts) and has not obtained permission from a coach or Club official to be there.

If you are going to be late collecting your child for any reason, please ring:

07956 277340 to contact Balcarras registration team

07513 291250 to contact Cheltenham College registration team

07513 291249 to contact Dean Close registration team

If you have warned us that you will be late, players will remain supervised until you arrive. Please note that this is to cater for emergencies only and this phone will only be switched on for the duration of Friday night training.

Due to the number and age of our players we do not have the resource to supervise them whilst they are not on the pitch in training. Players left unsupervised in the Balcarras Pavilion or elsewhere off pitch, on all three sites, are left at your own risk.

We will email parents if a training session is cancelled

We train in all weathers unless the conditions make training dangerous. If we need to cancel training we will let you know by email. Please check your email before leaving home, particularly on frosty evenings.
