Football Clubs across the state have done tremendous work to return to training safely since Monday 18 May.
The hard work and dedication from our Leagues and Clubs adhering to the various protocols have demonstrated that we are capable of delivering the required safeguards to continue to safely deliver football for South Australians.
Please see below link to the current Return to Play protocols.
In the off-season, clubs and individuals should continue to monitor restrictions related to activities and gatherings. Please refer to the resources and information made available by the State Government.
SANFL has developed two new education videos to support clubs transition to competition with spectators.
We have also made slight updates to the Testing, Isolation & Sanction video which reinforces the process for a player/coach/club official in the unlikely event they test positive for COVID-19.
Each video runs for approximately five minutes.
There is also a fact sheet to outline key principle protocols such as "Get In, Play, Get Out", Hygiene and Testing.
We continue to encourage all coaches, match day managers and other interested parties to undertake the Infection Control Training provided by the Federal Health Department.
SANFL has a range of new resources and templates to support transition into full squad training and the commencement of competitions.
Feel free to view, download and print any of these resources to support your club.
The following resources were updated on 10 September 2020 to support clubs and leagues prepare for finals:
- Finals FAQs
- Key Messages for Spectators
As we move through our Return to Play Roadmap, previous stage protocols become redundant.
Critical to our return to play framework will be the COVIDSafe App to ensure we are able to quickly trace and manage any outbreaks in the community.
We therefore urge everyone associated with football, including players, coaches, umpires, officials, volunteers and supporters, to download the COVIDSafe App.
You can use the links to download the app below, as well as download and use our graphics to share with your football network.
