Dear SBJFC members,

On Sunday 31st May, the current club sanctioned training ban will be lifted. This means that community football clubs, while adhering to State, AFL, EFNL and Council guidelines can re-introduce club sanctioned training from June 1st, 2020.

Please know that we understand the highs and lows families have been experiencing throughout the COVID19 situation. The safety and wellbeing, physically, mentally and socially is the priority of our club.

We appreciate that some children are longing to kick the footy with their friends while others may not. As a club, we will provide the opportunity for those families who wish to resume training, however in doing so, are required to meet specific safety guidelines for our community’s protection.

To resume training, there are strict guidelines stipulated by State, League and Council to optimise the safety of our community. All clubs require a COVID Safe Officer and it is recommended that a representative from each team completes the Infection Control Training – COVID19 which is a free online 15 min course.

If you choose to undertake this course and be the team’s nominated COVID Safe Officer, please forward your certificate to Ross Collins:

Attached here are the AFL guidelines which illustrate the requirements around club training sessions. Please note that the EFNL expects the groups of 10 to be extended to 2 groups of 20 by next week.

Here is a summary of the guidelines:
• Training sessions are strictly non-contact.
• Parent/guardian recommended to activate the COVID safe app.
• Maximum of 2 groups of 10 (excluding coaching team) on the oval at any given time, please note this is expected to lift to 2 × 20.
• Coaches/volunteers and parents to maintain 1.5mt physical distancing.
• Attendance of participants recorded.
• Hand sanitizer to be used before and after training.
• Minimal equipment used with balls being cleaned before and after training.
• Clubrooms/toilets will not be available. Please plan accordingly.

Each of our coaches has generously offered to run training for our teams, a great opportunity to practice the fundamentals skills, interact with friends and to be physically active in a fun and safe environment. It is critical that anyone unwell stays at home to protect the safety of our community.

Training: Please note your coach or TM will be in touch with you to confirm details, if you have not had contact, please don’t hesitate to contact either myself, members of the committee or your coach/TM directly. 

The SBJFC sincerely thanks its members for their patience, flexibility and unity throughout these changing times.

Any news on competition developments will be communicated. Please know the EFNL are working extremely hard to provide opportunities for our children to play footy safely.

Kind regards,

Shay Cosgrave
President South Belgrave Junior Football Club

As the end of the season has passed and a new one begins, can we please ask that you don’t throw away any footy boots that may not be required.  Please bring them in on Registration Day and donate them to the club so we can offer them to kids that may need a pair at a far cheaper price than the shops can offer. Some boots may be only 1 season old. All proceeds as usual go towards the kids.
