We are pleased to announce we are returning to training this coming week from Monday 1st June 2020. It’s been a long break since early March, I am sure you are all eager to get back on the field.

Return to Training Requirements
Football as a Sport, NSFA and our Club have been approved to return to training under the framework provided by the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS), the Australian Government Roadmap to a COVIDSafe Australia, and the Public Health COVID-19 Restrictions on Gathering and Movement.
The AIS Framework is a 3 level approach for the Return of Sport for all sports within Australia.
At this stage we are at Level 1 of the AIS Framework. This means we are able to return to training only. At this stage we are still waiting for further announcements on any return to competition. Level 1 allows us to return to training under approved guidelines.
Under Football NSW guidelines, approved by the NSW Office of Sport, football training activity must meet the following restrictions:
LEVEL 1 TRAINING – WHAT IS PERMITTED
- Training to be conducted in small groups (no more than 10 players and/or other personnel in total)
- Social distancing of 1.5m between players
- Spacing so that there is no more than 1 person per 4m²
- Non-contact skill training drills – passing, shooting
