What to bring (Tonbridge)

Residential Camps

Please arrive in Lions tracksuit and wearing a training t-shirt underneath and trainers.                  

Players should bring one training/ sports bag with you (your Lions holdall) and one overnight bag.

If players do not have the Lions kit they should bring their school or club kit instead as well as plain black/ grey neutral sportswear.

Please note that replica club kit is not acceptable for training.

Please add name labels or permanent marker to all your players items: clothes/ bags/ chargers/ valuable personal items.

Holdall should contain:

  • 2 x  large water bottles
  • Sun-cream
  • Medication (Inhalers/ Epi-pens)
  • Hand Sanitiser
  • Pen (important!)
  • Waterproof/ Warm Coat
  • Binbag
  • Non-studded boots (astros/ trainers) as some sessions will be on astro and firm grass pitches
  • Studded boots for playing on grass
  • Shinpads
  • Goalkeeping gloves (if applicable)

It would be helpful if the players’ holdall was already packed ready for training as above.

Overnight Bag should contain:

  • Towel
  • Toiletries
  • Casual clothes (including warm jacket/top) for evenings
  • Pyjamas
  • Lions Tracksuit (wear on arrival)
  • Lions Training T-shirt (wear on arrival)
  • Trainers (wear on arrival)
  • Lions Green match shirt, black shorts and green socks [Playing kit]
  • Second pair of playing shorts
  • Second pair of playing socks
  • Swimwear
  • Flip flops or Sliders
  • Spare laces/studs/stud tightener/boot cleaner
  • Mobile phones (and charger) may be used but will be collected in each evening.

*We strongly advise against bringing any expensive tech (e.g. AirPods/ Ipad)!*

Extra information on what to bring:

  • All bedding and pillows are provided but players will need to bring their own towels.
  • The players will not need any money.
  • During the Camp the players could be playing on a mixture of grass and astroturf. The grass is likely to be quite hard so ‘astroboots’ might be best for both surfaces.
