School building work
With the ongoing building work around the school over the last few months, the entrance to the venue is often ever-changing.
Please enter at the main school entrance, and park in the main car park area
We know space is tight as there are always other things going on. Alternatively, if the side road entrance is open (Next to the barbers) – please try and follow that route down to an extended car park area.
Available playing surfaces
As you are also aware, we have not played outside at Nicholas Chamberlaine for weeks, and it’s looking increasingly unlikely that we will get outside over the coming months. We have yet to encounter the real frost/ice and snow.
Luckily, we have a fully refurbished Sports Hall to use. All the children and parents stay dry and warm and can enjoy their regular football fun. When the outside pitches are unavailable we will try and get in the hall between 11am and 1pm, splitting our younger and older age groups so both groups have enough space to safely enjoy their session.
If the pitches are declared playable, the older group will generally take the normal slot of 11am-12pm outside. We will make a decision on the morning around the younger ones as if it is still a bit on the cold side, we can move indoors to the sports hall.
Sometimes there will be a late call made on the availability of pitches outside, and some time alterations. We apologise for any inconveniences but we are mainly in the hands of what the school decide. Please keep checking this website, our Facebook page and if possible, sign up for the Mini Soccer alerts to keep you informed!
