Return to Play/Training Conditions update (6 Nov)

The Committee are currently discussing the options for a return to training sometime in the near future. We are still waiting on advise from the council regarding the same. We will be in touch as soon as we know more.

From the FFV Website - 11am November 6th 2020

Following the movement of metropolitan Melbourne into the Third Step of the COVID-19 Roadmap, we have released an update to the Return to Play/Training Conditions for Juniors and Seniors.

Metropolitan Melbourne now joins Regional Victoria in the Third Step, allowing contact sport to resume for juniors aged 18 and under.

Senior players aged 19 and over cannot return to play; only restricted non-contact training is possible at this stage.

Please review the changes in detail and to continue to liaise with your Council (or other land owner) in relation to venue and facility access.

A reminder that compliance with the FV Return to Play/Training Conditions is mandatory.

We’ll shortly be launching our spring/summer football campaign, giving players the opportunity to take play our traditional winter sport across the warmer months.

The club will keep members updated as information becomes available.

FFV Update: Return to play conditions

The following content is from the FFV Website

Football Victoria (FV) welcomes the Victorian Government update from Monday 26 November (*We think they mean october), paving the way for a return to play for metropolitan players aged 18 and under, and non-contact training for 18+.

Sport & Recreation Victoria (SRV) will be releasing detailed guidance for community sport following these government announcements. Once received, FV will update and release Return to Play conditions and support around COVIDSafe plans for junior & adult participants. We anticipate this will be in the week commencing November 2.

As part of any return to football, Councils must also grant access to facilities and we anticipate this may take a few days to work through for each Club.

Please note that the current training/play restrictions remain in place for Clubs, until FV publishes an updated set of Return To Train/Return To Play Conditions and Councils advise of their required processes.

We are actively working with Clubs on spring/summer football programs to enable participants across the state to play football in 2020.

We will update our football community once we have further detail from SRV.

Until then, please take care, as we look forward to all Victorians being able to return to the pitch.
