Football NSW COVID-19 Safe Protocols - Latest update
The latest NSW Health advice reaffirms the importance of minimising the number of spectators at all matches, recommending that all community sport:
Cease activities that result in the mixing of participants and staff from different regions, for example by ceasing zone, regional or state championships or competition;
Cease any activities that result in overnight stays (e.g. multi-day training camps) due to increased risk of COVID-19 transmission in residential-type settings with shared facilities;
Cease face-to-face social activities relating to community sports (e.g. award ceremonies, end-of-season social gatherings,
post-training group dinners);
Avoid carpools or bus travel with people from different household groups where possible; and
Limit spectators to one parent only, where the child requires parental supervision during the sporting activity.
What this means for football competitions is:
All Senior Football NSW competitions will continue as scheduled.
All Junior and Youth Football NSW Competitions (U18 and below) will continue as scheduled with the exception of Southern Branch, Western NSW and Newcastle teams.
Local association football will continue as scheduled.
All fixtures must remain compliant with their relevant Covid-19 Safety Plan all participants must encourage to comply with all elements of the plan.
Therefore to ensure that the appropriate safeguards are in place, all players, parents, officials and spectators are required to adhere to the following:
Only 1 parent/guardian is to accompany players aged under 18 years to junior/youth football
Limit the number of family members, partners and other spectators that attend all other football matches
(Check with your club as additional spectator limits may apply to association competitions)
Avoid car pooling and bus travel with people from different households where possible
Cease activities that result in overnight stays
Cease face-to-face social activities, for example post-training or post-match group dinners or awards functions
Wash and/or sanitize hands before and after attending all training and games
Players arrive dressed and ready to train or play
Limit the use of changerooms. If changerooms are in use please adhere to the 4m2 per person rule in accordance with the public health order and minimise time spent in the change rooms.
Players must comply with the 1.5m social distancing rule (except during games)
No shaking hands, team huddles, high fives, or hugging other players, match officials, team officials or spectators.
No player walkouts prior to matches
Do not share drink bottles
Do not share containers of food, including oranges. Players should bring their own food and snacks.
Avoid bringing anyone who is elderly or may be at high or increased risk of illness
Do not attend football if you have flu like symptoms or are feeling unwell
Spectators must observe the 1.5m social distancing rule at all times unless from the same household
All participants and spectators must cover their coughs and sneezes
Players and spectators must not socialize or assemble in groups before, during or after football
Once training and games are finished depart the venue as soon as possible
Get tested for COVID-19 if you feel unwell or develop cold or flu like symptoms
The following should also be noted in relation to outdoor sport participation:
an outdoor environment poses less risk of community transmission than an indoor environment
casual contact (face to face contact with a person for less than 15 minutes) poses less risk of community transmission compared to that of close contact (face to face contact with a person for 15 minutes or more).
Therefore, compliance with the transmission prevention protocols, including social distancing 1.5 metres, good hygiene practices, limiting the number of adults present, not shaking hands and not attending if you are feeling unwell or have cold/flu like symptoms by all participants, parents and spectators is what is effective in minimising the risk of community transmission.
We ask that all participants continue to adhere to the protocols that have been put in place and we assure you that everything that can be done, is being done to keep football safe.
Please no group activities before and after games, one parent to accompany a persons under 18 years old. No spectators at adult games. The rest is as per usual no touching, spitting, hand shakes etc.
Please note that the following cannot be undertaken by Clubs/Teams for the next 6 weeks:
Team Photos (by a professional photographer, by parents, by coaches/managers etc)
Uploads of before game and after game photos on Facebook (during game photos are permitted)
Team huddles before, during and after games
Thank you for your constant help, consideration and compliance.
Any issues please contact the committee/coach and or manager.
