Club Doncaster Titans have been finding innovative ways to keep in touch during lockdown.
While grassroots football is still paused due to the pandemic, the Titans – like most people around the country - have been keeping in-touch via Zoom and WhatsApp.
With weekly quizzes, online sessions, and team challenges – the players have been able to enjoy football and hanging around with their team-mates despite the difficult conditions.
Every Monday, Wednesday (U12s) and Thursday (U16s), coaches hold online sessions which involve small skills which can be done indoors or out and don’t need much room to take part while the players in the senior teams have been taking it in turns to set daily football challenges for their team-mates via video messages on WhatsApp.
Chairman and manager of Titans Darren Warner said: “It’s very humbling and heart-warming to see how all our members have embraced the challenges and each other through this pandemic and it’s a joy to see their friendships growing stronger every day.
"It was important to us that we found ways to stay connected throughout what would be a very challenging time and I am extremely proud how no one has let the situation break their spirits. I know I speak for everyone when I say we can’t wait to see everyone again when we are safe to return.”
The Titans are a club committed to supporting any player disabled or non-disabled or those who suffer from any type or degree of mental health in their journey of playing football.
