2021 Season COVIDSAFE Plan

Share

IMPORTANT PLEASE READ

Feeling unwell?

If you are unwell, or experiencing any symptoms such as runny nose, sore throat, cough or fever PLEASE STAY HOME.  We know everyone loves playing football, but for the safety of your Coaches, Parents and Team-Mates and of course ensuring the season continues without interruption, we urge you to stay home if you are unwell.

Checking in/Contact Tracing

When arriving at Redbacks FC home ground, View Street you will be required to check in via the Service NSW app.  This is a critical step in our Covid Safety Plan in the unfortunate event we need to respond to a potential exposure.  We request all Coaches, Parents, Players and Supporters check in and out of the grounds. 

This applies to Game Day and Training Nights effective immediately.

QR Codes Placement

We have provided your Team Manager and Coach with a copy of the QR code for checking in, or alternatively, the QR codes will be placed around the grounds on the black fence and near the canteen for your use.

Social Distancing

In line with Public Health orders, please ensure when supporting your team that you remain 1.5m apart.  We know that it is a good time to catch up with friends at the Football, but please do so safely and responsibly by keeping your distance.

Please keep your distance when lining up for Canteen purchases also.

End of Game Celebrations & Snacks

Please do not shake hands with your opposition, rather do the elbow bump to limit contact.  Any communal game day snacks i.e. half time oranges should be avoided or please use tongs to distribute.

2021 Pre-season Muster Update

As communicated earlier in the week, the weather has not been our friend and our Muster plans have needed to be revised as a result. Despite the recent sunny weather, Council has advised the grounds will remain closed so we will not be able to proceed with our player activities as originally planned. 

The following activities WILL continue as planned:

1:  Merchandise Sales  **The canteen will be open from 6pm for sales**

2:  Manager & Coach Information Sessions incl. Uniform and Kit Bag distribution

Please note: Only a nominated Manager or Coach can collect the Team Kit Bag and Uniforms so please make sure at least one of you can attend the info session. Below are the session timings for your relevant age groups. Please arrive on time:

  • 6pm:         U6-U7 Age Groups
  • 6:45pm:   U8-U9 Age Groups
  • 7:30pm:   U10, 11,12,13 Age Groups

All sessions will provide the Coach and Manager with the following:

  •  Manager and Coach Information Brief incl. President’s Welcome
  • Age Co-ordinators introduced
  • Team kit bags and Player jerseys distributed
  • Training information (incl. NSWFC requirements)
  • Manager/Coach shirts

Our Kids entertainment, sausage sizzle and team meet and greet gatherings will no longer go ahead which is disappointing. As it’s our Club 60th Anniversary Celebration this year we will commence planning another event to celebrate with our members….. Watch this space!

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the Redbacks FC Committee. 

We look forward to return to the grounds soon !


NWSF – 2020 Season Update

Return to Training

We thank you for your patience during the suspension of football and understand you would be eager to get back on the field.

We are excited that Football NSW has advised that, provided clubs and participants comply with the revised NSW Govt Public Health Order and by adopting the FNSW Return to Training Guidelines (available here), clubs can resume training activities. This is also subject to local Councils confirming fields will be available (and we note some of our Councils are yet to confirm).

Please check with your club about arrangements for training and remember you must stay at home if:

1. You have been unwell or are displaying any of the following symptoms similar to flu:

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath
  • Breathing difficulties

2. You have been exposed to a person who has tested positive to Coronavirus

3. You have a sudden loss of taste or smell

4. You have been placed in quarantine or self isolation

 

2020 Competition Arrangements
Based on the Return to Training confirmation, NWSF is planning on a Return to Play and season commencement date of the weekend of 4/5 July.
 
We are also in discussions with Councils and summer sports and hopeful that we will have access to fields through to the weekend of 3/4 October.This means all competitions will play 13 or 14 matches and 1 vs 2 grand finals may also be possible if we can get access to fields for an additional week.

 
 
2020 Fees
Based on the above arrangements, NWSF will be charging clubs the normal registration fees. Also please note the following arrangements for registrations/de-registrations:

  • Players currently Active in Play Football will have until 5 June if they wish to de-register. Those who de-register cannot re-register with NWSF in 2020
  • Players wishing to de-register need to initiate the de-registration in Play Football. A guide is available here.
  • Clubs may determine if they wish to charge de-registered players a minimal admin fee (to cover equipment and admin overheads) for those who de-register prior to 5 June
  • The Association will liaise with clubs to confirm the amount to be refunded and will process refunds to players who de-register prior to 5 June. NWSF will send players seeking de-registration a form to collect bank details for the refund payment
  • Active Kids Vouchers cannot be refunded to players as per NSW Government requirements
  • Players who wish to de-register after 5 June will not be entitled to a refund
  • Registrations for new players will close for the year on 31 July
  • There will be no refunds if the season is reduced by wet weather

The process above is required so that clubs can confirm whether they need to withdraw or merge teams, and so the Association can complete the draw process.
