COVID-19 Update 29th June 2020

Training Postponement

Dear Members,

In light of the current developments with the COVID 19 situation in Victoria the club has made the decision to cancel all training, at least until the VAFA meet on the 6th of July.
Once we know their position regarding a return to play date, the club will be able to decide as to when we recommence training.

I trust that everyone understands that for the safety of our members the club needs to err on the side of caution given the current situation.

REGARDS

David Park|President OAFC.

COVID-19 Update 22nd June 2020

The VAFA Board met this evening to determine whether a season will proceed in 2020.
The Board wish to advise that they have decided that until AFL Return to Play (RTP) protocols are finalised and state government announcements about the ‘Return to Contact Training’ and permissible competition dates are confirmed – no decision can be made about the VAFA competition for the 2020 season proceeding.

The Board will meet on or about 6th July to determine whether to proceed with a 2020 season. The earliest date that the season can commence is July 25 and the latest date – August 1, and will only proceed upon the satisfaction of the above requirements.

We thank our clubs for their continued support and understanding in relation to the delay in this decision, especially in light of the weekend announcements from the State Government.

The VAFA Board and Administration remain committed to the 2020 season, making certain we can provide a safe environment for all to be part of.

The VAFA implore all of our community to maintain their role in reducing community transmissions at this crucial time, as we endeavour to return to the field “for the love of the game”.

COVID-19 Update 11th May 2020

Dear Members,

The club has just received the following correspondence from AFL Victoria. We will pass on any updates as they become available.

REGARDS

On the back of today’s State Government announcement around easing some restrictions, AFL Victoria’s position around training is that no sanctioned training should take place until further notice.

AFL Victoria will seek clarity from the State Government around what today’s announcement means for community football and be in contact in due course.

A number of considerations around health and safety protocols and insurance need to be worked through prior to any training being sanctioned.

AFL Victoria will provide a return to play protocol for community leagues and clubs once it is approved by the State Government.

As soon as I have more information I’ll be in touch.

Regards,

Steve
