We have had some tremendous success stories throughout the Association during the first five weeks and we hope these continue to flower over the coming months. Ahead of this weekend we ask again that you take responsibility of yourself, your team mates and our NSFA community by following and encouraging the below restrictions and COVID safe practices.
The restrictions enforced this weekend will include:
Persons who have visited Victoria in the last 14 days are excluded from participating in NSFA football activities (including spectators and officials).
Persons who have attended any of the reported case locations listed in NSW Health website, are excluded from participating in NSFA football activities (including spectators and officials).
A maximum of ONE spectator is permitted per player, where possible. We trust you!
Spectators are required to position themselves on the opposite side of the field to the technical area (Manager, Coach, Players), or stand behind a fence where possible.
Northern Suburbs Football Association and all member Clubs continue to enforce the following restrictions:
- Do not attend practice or matches if you are feeling unwell
- Player must arrive ‘match ready’ and avoid any loitering around the field pre & post-match
- Maximum ONE spectator per participating player. Only parents and carers permitted. If non-essential, please stay home!
- All spectators must social distance 1.5m – This is roughly the length of your umbrella, please use it!
- No sharing drink bottles or food (ie. Half time oranges)
- No changerooms can be used.
- Portable pitch-side BBQs are not permitted.
- NSFA encourage the use of face masks for spectators
Any person found to be acting in breach of the above NSFA directive will be investigated and the matter will be put forth before NSFA Player Disputes and Disciplinary Committee.
With over 16,750 participants in 2020, we have a responsibility to ensure each other are safe and the wider community of the Northern Suburbs. You have a responsibility to manage yourself, your teams mates and your associated spectators. Please exercise this responsibility.
NSFA staff and volunteers will be reporting on all grounds this weekend. Further restrictions may be applied in the coming weeks to ensure we remain COVID safe. Please keep an eye on the NSFA facebook page for live updates.
Yours in football,
CEO – Northern Suburbs Football Association
