NSW Health has issued guidelines and updated COVID-19 Safety Plans for sporting organisations and community sport across NSW which means only parents or carers will be allowed to attend Canterbury District Soccer Football Association (CDSFA) football matches, effective immediately

After consultation with government agencies and other sporting bodies, the CEO of Football NSW has announced a number of additional restrictions to community football.  A copy of the announcement by the CEO of Football NSW can be viewed here and a further message about the announcement from Chairman Armando Gardiman AM, Canterbury & District Soccer Football Association (CDSFA) can be viewed here

These updates require all CDSFA member clubs including Abbotsford Juniors Football Club, to update their COVID-19 Safety Plans to ensure that additional steps required to comply with the tightening restrictions and to keep everyone safe are taken.

The updated Safety Plan includes:
-  Restricting the number of spectators to a single parent or carer only where a child requires parental supervision. This means strictly no aunties, no uncles, no grandmothers, no grandfathers, no brothers and no sisters attending games on the sidelines.

- All attendees whether players, officials, managers, coaches, spectators or the general public are required to register their attendance.

- For players, coaches and managers attending training, this will be covered by the Training attendance sheet. Please refer to the 2020 Season return to Training Page

- For those playing, managing, coaching and officiating at games, the match sheet is a Register of Attendance

- For any other person attending a field to watch either training or a game, attendance must be recorded using your phone and the COVID registration QR codes which are displayed on red training dummies located around Campbell Park, Lysaght Park and at the Campbell Park Club House.

- Anyone who has visited Victoria or another area, venue or hot spot declared NSW Health in the past 14 days is banned from attending games, whether they are a player, family member, spectator or official.

- Any participant (including spectators and officials) in a game must be excluded if they have attended any of the reported case locations listed here.

- The Club and Association must prioritise the delay of a the game rather than substituting with people from other teams, if sufficient numbers to field teams cannot be achieved.

- Activities that result in the mixing of participants and staff from different regions, for example zone, regional or state championships are not permitted

- Activities that result in overnight stays, for example multi-day trianing camps are not permitted

- Face-to-face social activities including post-training or match gatherings, group dinners or award functions/celebrations are not permitted

- All members to avoid carpooling or bus travel with people from different household groups where possible

- The Club must ensure the number of people in a facility does not exceed one person per 4 square metres of space (excluding staff) to a maximum of 500 people.

Abbotsford Juniors Football Club has updated our COVID-19 Safety Plan published on our website to implement these new guidelines immediately from today, Wednesday 19th August 2020.
