The following has just been sent out to al of our weekend club and team contacts, to help outline our procedures if we are able to play this weekend
Given how close we are to the end of the season we wanted to give you all information about how we will be managing the last games scheduled for the season – specifically the 21/22 August (though not impossible, it does seem very unlikely we will be in Level One or Two this Weekend, so want to be as prepared as possible):
LEVEL 3 or 4
For teams still scheduled to play, the thing that will be the most help in making this happen smoothly is to communicate with your teams, and their family/friends – “if they are not named on your team list, they cannot come to the game and expect to be able to come inside”. If you can get these lists done today and tomorrow (42 or 22 total depending on the venue) it will allow us to operate as smoothly as possible on Saturday. I will be generating team lists after Tomorrow’s announcement (if appropriate), so please make sure your team members are accurate before then. Even if these are not needed for this weekend, it is likely we will be in Level Two when we resume playing, so the lists will be needed for that anyway.
We are lucky that we know our systems to play in Level Two work extremely well, and our procedures can be implemented far easier than other sporting-codes who have already cancelled their competitions this weekend.
Lastly a few numbers – 75% of all of our winter teams had completed their season before going into lockdown, and we only have 36 games scheduled to go to complete all of our grades (out of 1346 total games needed for this entire winter club season) – which means we got through over 97% before having to stop this year!
Stay Safe everyone, and look out for each other 😊
