Message from Club President

Hello everyone,

 

With the ever changing landscape regarding the corona virus (Covid-19) I have had enquires regarding what will happen with training and playing this season and how we will be impacted.

At the present time the club is taking the advice from Football Federation Australia, Football Victoria, BASL, the WHO and the National Health Organisations in making sure that our priority is and will remain the health and safety of our players, coaches, parents and staff.

Below is the latest from Football Victoria regarding the continued involvement of people in Football at present, please take the time to read it as it affirms where our sport is at the moment. In the meantime we are continuing with pre-season training and hopefully the season ahead. If anyone has concerns about training or having their child or children at training during these times please let your coach know and or myself as nothing is more important than everyone health. I ask coaches at this time to consider modifying training to limit the amount of physical contact and concentrate more on skill development and fitness.

 

Kind Regards

Ron Cole

COVID-19 Guidelines for Football

All football participants must play a role if we are to help slow the spread of COVID-19, including people organising, attending or supporting attendance at football activities. Effective 16 March 2020, the following guidelines should be adhered to for all football activities, including training and matches.

    2. (b)  have been in direct contact with a known case of COVID-19 in the past 14 days;
    3. (c)  have travelled internationally or been exposed to a person with COVID-19 in the preceding 14 days; or
    4. (d)  are at a high risk from a health perspective, including the elderly and those with pre-existing medical heath conditions.
  1. Attendance at football activities
    • Only essential participants should attend football activities, i.e. players, coaches, match officials, staff and volunteers involved in operations and parents/guardians of participants;
    • Only attend as close as practical to the start of any football activity and leave as practically possible after;
    • Children to be accompanied by not more than one parent or guardian, if possible.

 

  1. Practice social distancing at football activities
    • Amend pre and post-match protocols so players and officials do not touch each other, e.g. no shaking hands, no walk out with player mascots;
    • When spectating or attending at a football match/training, ensure you keep a distance of 1.5 metres between yourself and others;
    • Restrict access to changeroom areas to only players, officials and essential staff;
    • If watching football and confined to a small area nearby other people, seek to move around the facility to avoid close contact with others.
  1. Hygiene and Behaviour Hygiene
    • Ensure spaces at each facility, surfaces and objects are regularly cleaned with disinfectant;
    • Provide hand washing guidance (http://www.who.int/gpsc/clean_hands_protection/en/);
    • Promote regular and thorough hand washing by staff and participants;
    • Provide sanitising hand rub dispensers in prominent places around the event (particularly entry or high use areas such as a registration desk, change rooms,toilets or kiosk);
    • Make sure hand rub dispensers are regularly refilled.

Behaviour

    • Cover mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze;
    • Provide bins and put used tissues in the bin straight away;
    • Wash hands with soap and water often;

 

  • Use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available;
  • Try to avoid close contact with people who are unwell;
  • Do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean.

Organisation of football activities
