COVIDSafe protocols

COVIDSafe protocols as at March 2022

Here is the latest government guidance and AFL Victoria COVIDSafe protocols that apply to junior footy:

The key things to remember are:

  • players, coaches, volunteers and parents/carers/spectators should not come to training, matches or club events if they are sick, and everyone is encouraged to get tested and seek medical assistance if they have COVID-19 symptoms
  • although there is no vaccine requirement for players, coaches and volunteers participating in community sport, spectators (including parents/carers who are not coaches and volunteers) need to be fully vaccinated to enter indoor community sport venues (which include change rooms, toilets, social rooms, etc.)
  • drink bottles are not to be shared
  • players, coaches and volunteers are encouraged to use hand sanitiser before, during and after training, and at matches
  • spectators are encouraged to stand 1.5m apart at training/matches, and masks are recommended if they cannot physically distance
  • if a player or official tests positive to COVID-19, they should use their best endeavours to notify the club as soon as possible
