At Brunswick Zebras, the health and well being of all of our members is our number one priority. Your committee has been liaising with Moreland City Council, Melbourne City Council, Football Victoria and other relevant bodies to determine the how we might best restart football for our members.
With the recently announced easing of restrictions, we have reviewed what options were available for us to meaningfully return to training conditions. Unfortunately, we have determined that this is not realistically possible at this stage, for example, there is a Council requirement of a maximum of 10 participants on the entire pitch at any one time, parents and any others are required to keep a reasonable distance or will be included in the group of 10, maintaining physical distancing of 1.5 meters, no use of communal facilities, no shared equipment etc.
We will be reviewing this situation again on 31st May 2020 at which point we are hoping for a further easing in restrictions.
