The utterly INSANE ‘new normal’ for kids football – ‘don’t touch the ball’ and other monumental madness from the FA that destroys the whole experience (as they have with professional football)

‘Children must be guided not to touch equipment e.g. cones and footballs. The focus should be on kicking the ball and limiting any touching of the ball with hands.’
‘Equipment should be handled as little as possible by as few people as possible. Where equipment is handled by more than one person, they should wash their hands immediately afterwards, taking care not to touch their mouth or face in the meantime. For goalkeepers, it might be sensible for players to have their own individual ball for the session, with the frequent wiping of the ball with disinfectant wipes if it is being handled by more than one person.’
‘Ensure your child takes their own water bottle and their own hand sanitiser, both clearly marked with their name. They must not share these with anyone else.’
‘If your child gets injured, a member of their household can aid them but others will still need to socially distance unless a life or limb-threatening injury necessitates breaking guidelines to provide emergency care. If there is a first-aider or other medical personnel present, they should be equipped with the appropriate PPE to protect themselves and others if they need to break social-distancing guidelines to provide medical assistance.’

Yes, the Football Association is clinically insane, but then you don’t me to tell you that.
