BFA PARTIAL RESUMPTION
Dear BFA Members,
We hope everybody has been staying safe and well during the lock-down. We can imagine how difficult it has been for you all, especially having to home-school your children. We know many of you are itching to get them out of the house and back to football or other sports as soon as it’s safe & possible.
As you all know, last Monday, the Tokyo government started to ease the restrictions due to COVID-19 and businesses are starting to open up again but observing ‘social-distancing’ and other safety measures. Many Japanese public/private schools are resuming slowly/partially from today.
As for the British Football Academy, we are at the mercy of the grounds/venues as to when we can start again. Even when the schools re-open, extra-curricular activities are not high on their priority for restarting, with some places not wanting ‘outside people’ to use their facilities, so the restarting of BFA classes will be staggered depending on the locations. (see below for details).
We will also be trying to secure other locations (like Shibuya Sports centre) to hold some ‘drop-in’ classes until our regular venues are available again. We will contact you all by email with details.
We look forward to seeing you all out on the football pitch very soon.
Yours in football,
1st June 2020
