What to bring to the Camp

2 x  large waterbottles

Towel

Toiletries

Medication (if applicable)

Suncream

Hand Sanitiser

Pen

Casual clothes (including warm jacket/top)

Lions training shirts

Lions tracksuit (wear on arrival)

Lions match shirt, shorts, 2 x socks

Waterproof top (ideally a Lions top)

Swimming trunks

Binbags

Non-studded boots (astros) or trainers suitable for playing football on astroturf

Studded boots for playing on grass

Suitable trainers for playing in sports hall

A holdall/backpack (ideally a Lions holdall). Players will need to carry their boots, shinpads, waterbottles and waterproofs to the pitches from the accommodation.

Shinpads

Goalkeeping gloves (if applicable)

Spare laces/studs/stud tightener/boot cleaner

All bedding and pillows are provided but players will need to bring their own towels

Mobile phones (and charger) are not needed or recommended. We do acknowledge that some parents will want their children to have a mobile phone. Players that do decide to bring phones will not be allowed to take them out during the day and phones will be collected in each evening by the coaching staff at around 7.30pm.

We do not expect the players to need any money during the Camp.

The players will be going for lunch before starting training and so should wear their tracksuits with their training t-shirt underneath on arrival.

During the Camp the players could be playing on a mixture of grass, astroturf and indoors depending on the weather etc.

We would expect players to bring one main bag plus their team holdall/backpack. It might be helpful if the players’ holdall/backpack was already packed ready for training with boots, shinpads, waterbottles, suncream, medication, a binbag, waterproof top (and goalkeeping gloves for goalkeepers).
