COVID-19 Updates

IMPORTANT UPDATE REGARDING COVID-19 (CoronaVirus)  

Wednesday, 18th March 2020

Dear Members and Friends,

I’m sure you have received numerous updates from your child’s school regarding the current situation with the CoronaVirus. After careful consideration with advice from the Yarra Junior Football League (YJFL) and the AFL, the committee and coaches  last night made the arduous decision to suspend all club activities until after Easter, when we will meet again and discuss our direction for the rest of the season.

While the YJFL has yet to decide on when the season will start, we feel it best at this time to cancel all training, allow the school holiday and Easter break to take place, then re-evaluate the situation after this time.

The committee, coaches and sponsors believe in the importance  physical activity plays in keeping our children both physically and mentally healthy.  With this in mind we encourage you to keep a football in your child’s hands as often as possible.  We are currently developing some initiatives to keep your child engaged with football, our club and to keep their physical activity up. We will be working with you and your child to ensure they are ready for the football season, whenever it commences.

Importantly during this time we must stick together as a strong football community. If anyone needs assistance or just someone to lend an ear during this challenging time, please reach out to your friends at the football club.  Myself and the committee are here to support you.

As COVID-19 remains a situation with the potential to change rapidly, we will continue to update you as new information comes to hand.

For more information please see the following resources:

Please stay safe and well,

Greg Schroeders

As per the update from the AFL last night all NAB AFL Auskick Centres must suspend their activities until after May 31st, 2020.
We apologies for the inconvenience and disappointment this causes you and the children, but the health, safety and well-being of everyone involved is paramount, so we have agreed to these measures without hesitation or argument.

Please see the Frequently asked Questions page posted by the AFL today for more information : https://play.afl/covid-19/faqs

We are currently looking at other ways we can engage with your child, through you, during this period and keep their football dreams alive. We will be in touch as we develop these strategies.

Thankyou for your understanding and support.
