Today, AFL Victoria released its ‘return to training’ protocols, following on from Saturday’s announcement.
Along with the protocols (click here to view), there are a number of education sessions and courses to ensure that personnel are equipped to run sessions safely.
Whilst May 25 is listed in the official AFL Victoria release as the date when clubs are able to return to training – following the new protocols – the EFNL’s current suspension of training (until at least May 31) remains in place.
This is to allow clubs time to review and understand these protocols properly and plan for a safe return to training. It is important to highlight that we do not have a Return to Play date, something that only the State Government can provide us with.
As per our previous release around a ‘return to training’, we still encourage players to get out of the house with teammates for a kick – whilst following COVID safe practices – to ensure both physical and mental wellbeing.
