We are pleased to announce that we are now moving to our COVID Stage 2B Training Plan.
Under the Stage 2B Plan we will be able to continue to train with additional venues. Field 2 has been broken up into Zone A, B and C. We will also be extending the Hawks FC Site Plan to include Field 6 - see Site Plan - COVID Stage 2B
Each Zone will be allowed a MAXIMUM of 20 participants (this includes players and parents at the venue). Therefore we are requesting that PLAYERS AND OFFICIALS ONLY ENTER THE RESTRICTED ZONE (defined as the red border on the site plan).
Players must go directly to their allocated ZONE after sanitising on entry. Players must remain in their zone (they are not to cross through zones and they are asked to walk up along the clubhouse and then enter their zone. Players must not mingle with other zones and there is NO SWAPPING of players between zones.
These are very strict guidelines that all clubs have had to agree in order for training to be allowed. We are asking parents that if you are not willing or able to abide by these restrictions that you wait until Stage 3 when restrictions are further relaxed.
Training Allocations have also changed effective Monday 22 June with training now being more consistent with our normal training allocations (although there are still some age groups such as Komodos will be using what was previously the Development night until Stage 3).
Please see the Training Allocations for your team. Please note that in Stage 2B THERE IS NO CONTACT so training sessions have been cut back to focus on fundamentals and core skills only.
PLEASE NOTE: New ENTRY and EXIT will apply and your entry will be based on the field allocation. Field 2 Zones A and B (F2A & F2B) will enter and exit via the Klumpp Road end (parking adjacent to Child Care) and Field 2 Zone C (F2C) and Field 6 (F6) will enter and exit via the Scoreboard end (parking in the adjacent car park).
Hatchlings and Fledglings will NOT start until Stage 3 which will be from Thursday 16 July (this is when full contact will be allowed).
ALL EXISTING PROTOCOLS AND RESTRICTIONS REMAIN UNCHANGED UNTIL STAGE 3!!
