Football for young kids

Don't really see why a kids football team couldn't potentially start training again soon (June 10th is the end of the SFA ban). My 5 year old son's son's team is circa 10-12 strong, with three or four coaches in attendance. The training sessions are an hour long and once a week and held outside. One thing the scientists agree on is that passing the disease on outside is far less a possibility than inside. Granted social distancing couldnt be adhered to 100% of the time between the kids, but in reality the chances of them passing it on to one another are so remote (I can't see how you could pass Covid-19 to someone by a tackle) the positives outweigh the negatives

Why the contribution is important

Children have been cooped up indoors for weeks now which obviously is not a good thing. Allowing this to go ahead would do wonders for both their mental and physical well-being
