Season 2020 Update
Lets the Games Begin!!!
The 2020 season is finally underway with our first round being played this weekend. This newsletter contains very important information so please take the time to read it – it includes the game information for the weekend as well as information about upcoming referee courses but most importantly about how we must all work together to be COVIDSAFE.
As a reminder we all need to still practice social distancing where possible and practice good hand hygiene. Please remember that if you are unwell stay at home. Each player must bring their own drink bottle no sharing at anytime.
COVIDSAFE We are all responsible for minimizing the risks associated with COVID-19. St Pats are a COVIDSAFE Club and we are taking all reasonable steps but we need your help:
•Do not attend game as a player, official, or spectator if you are unwell or have been in contact with anyone that has tested positive
• Officials and spectators must practice physical distancing at all times
• Practice good hygiene at all times
• Maximum of 2 spectators per player
Before this weekend, please read the Return to Play Safety Plan by clicking here: https://footballnsw.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/Return-to-Play-Guidelines-FNSW-Level-C.pdf
In addition, anyone feeling sick should not attend the ground for any reason and we strongly encourage you all to download the COVIDSAFE app
