With the announcement from AFL Riverina that Community Football has been given the green light to resume training for the 2020 season, we are one step closer to getting some sort of football and netball underway. But - before we get on the track or court, there's some important strict protocols that need to be met.
These protocols relate to safety, sanitising, spacing, numbers, sequencing, scheduling and the list goes on. We need to put in place an accredited Club COVID safety officer, and must have strict procedures around attendance and recording. And we must report back to AFL Riverina on all these things. Basically, now we know the rules, there is a bit to do to get our house in order before we are ready to go.
The Club's plans are to sort through these issues over the next few days and schedule a roll out of training commencement. Meetings will be held with senior coaches in the first instance, and to ensure we have our processes right, Club sanctioned training will involve the senior most grades only for at least the first couple of weeks. Once that's firing ok, we'll look to expand the list to other grades / teams.
More announcements on what groups are commencing training first, and when it starts, will be made early next week and we'll update you then with further details.
