Proper Attire for Optimal Performance

To ensure a safe and enjoyable experience during your training sessions, we kindly request that you adhere to the following attire guidelines. Your comfort and well-being are our top priorities, and appropriate attire contributes significantly to your overall training success.

 

Attire Guidelines

  1. Layer Up for Protection: As training involves dynamic movements and potential dives on Turf, we recommend wearing layers that offer an added safeguard for your knees and elbows. The Turf surface can be abrasive, and proper layers can help prevent discomfort.
  2. Mandatory Goalkeeper Gloves: Goalkeeper gloves are a fundamental necessity for training. Please ensure you bring your own pair, as you will not be able to participate without them. There will be no spare gloves available on site.
  3. Footwear: Opt for suitable footwear that enhances your grip and agility on Turf. Metal studs are not permitted, as they can pose risks to both you and fellow players.
