* All relevant parties within your club should be made aware of who their “Club Admin” is, their role and responsibilities.

* Club Admins should email the completed form to by July 18th 2020.

Please note this expression of interest is not a guaranteed team entry. This will only be confirmed when all required administration and registration criteria is met.

-11 aside divisions will strictly be limited to 1 team per club at all age groups.

-Given the expected requests for entry volumes across all age groups and SSGC pitch restrictions, we may have to restrict and prioritise entry to certain age groups.

* Club admins will be expected to oversee the online KlubFunder, Club and League registration process.

*Each club will be asked to submit the details of a nominated “Child Welfare Officer”. Your clubs should now start sourcing someone if you do not currently have one in place, that holds the required qualifications prior to a possible late August / early September kick off, COVID-19 lock down restrictions permitting.

-This role will be to ensure all child protection criteria is adhered to throughout the season, including assurances that all club coaches and volunteers will complete or hold the required child protection/access NI certifications.

- Each team entered should have as a minimum, a Level 1 coach listed who is child protection and first aid trained and Access NI checked.

Registration/ Entry fees are currently under review with a mind to reflect last seasons incompletion.
