COVID-19 Update #2

Please see the poster via the following link that outlines guidelines that are in place at WACFA Grounds for the upcoming weeks.

WACFA COVID-19 Safety Plan

NOTE: With the spectator rule, this does not include coaches, managers.

The Club has relayed specific requirements to Coaches and Managers, specific to particular age groups, and all players and parents are asked to comply with any request made with a generous heart, rather than a legalistic disposition.

Join us as we pray for everyone’s health and an issue free season.

2020 Season begins

We are very excited to see the start of the 2020 WACFA season.

Games will commence for all teams on Saturday 20 June (fixtures coming soon) with the last round being Saturday 19 September.

Please note there will be some changes to the standard game times from previous seasons and that fixtures will run through the school holidays this year.

Revised fees for the shortened season have been decided. The Club will contact you about a refund if you qualify. Registered players who have not paid fees should do this now.

If you know anyone who has registered to play but for whatever reason is no longer planning to, please ask the to contact the Club’s registrar, Stacey – registrar@greyhoundscsc.com.au.

CovID-19 Update

WACFA Clubs Presidents held a meeting with Executives of WACFA  last week and agreed to the following with regards to training and the 2020 season.

  1. Clubs are to seek approval and comply with Local Authorities with access to training venues.
  2. Ensure training methods and activities comply with WA Government and Health Department rules and guidelines.

To that end WACFA has provided the following critical information presented by the WA Government:

Can I play soccer socially at the park if there are 20 of us?

Soccer is a contact sport and is prohibited, however, non- contact training or kick to kick is permitted for up to 20 people at a local park.

The space you are playing in must be big enough to provide at least 4 square metres per person and participants should practice social distancing of 1.5 metres from other people.

The playing of contact sports remains a prohibited activity.

Are sporting clubs able to return and is full contact allowed?

Sporting activities that are non-contact and involve no more than 20 people are allowed. This includes children’s sport.

Minimal shared equipment should be used and cleaned frequently.

This includes non – contact training for sports that would ordinarily involve contact (such as soccer, football, hockey , basketball and netball)

Contact sports remain a prohibited activity.

For more detailed information , Football West has provided the following link which WACFA recommends you study:

With respect to season commencement, WACFA cannot confirm a start date nor guarantee a competition until the Authorities lift the restrictions.

WACFA’s intention is to collaborate closely with clubs to commence competitions as quickly as possible once the above is confirmed.

The goal will be to maximise the number of weeks that can be accommodated prior to the normal annual closing date of 19 September.
