The Ricki Herbert Football Academy has resumed training activities for the last week of May, after meeting appropriate guidelines from government and NZ Football.
The academy has updated its timetables for its programmes starting the week of May 25, and will use this website to share information. Please keep checking here for updates.
The RHFA programmes will adhere to health and safety guidelines, and contact tracing requirements, as provided by NZ Football in consultation with Sport New Zealand and the Ministry of Health.
New Zealand Football says it is aiming to start the 2020 winter season during June but training has resumed in late May, with sessions capped at 10 participants, including players and coaches. Group sizes can grow to up to 100 from noon on Friday May 29 as level 2 restrictions ease.
Meanwhile, our academy’s holiday programmes planned for April will be moved to the July school holidays, with dates to be confirmed nearer the time.
These will provide programmes for boys and girls at Kamo, Warkworth, Papatoetoe, Hamilton, Cambridge, New Plymouth.
If you have already registered for these programmes for April, your registrations will automatically carry forward for July.
Otherwise please check our website for when we confirm new dates and re-open registrations.
RHFA founder Ricki Herbert said nothing was more important to the academy than the welfare of its players and their families, and the academy’s staff.
“As much as we would like to continue training we feel we have a responsibility to follow the guidelines given to ensure the safety of your family, which is paramount.”
