IMPORTANT COVID-19 UPDATE FROM MFA [31ST OF JULY 2020]

Herlp stop the spread  Covid 19


Dear Members,

 

We are contacting you in relation to the closure of three Sydney schools due to reports of students testing positive to COVID-19.

 

Those schools are:

 

1.     Fort Street High School – Petersham;

2.     Freeman Catholic College – Bonnyrigg; and

3.     Mary Immaculate Catholic Primary School - Bossley Park.

 

We have spoken to representatives from NSW Health regarding players (not from Macarthur) who attend these schools and have been advised as follows:

 

·         Fort Street High School

o    The player at this school has tested negative however has been advised to self-isolate as a precaution.

Therefore:

-          any players who attend the above school can continue to participate in football as usual; and

-          all players should continue to monitor for symptoms and self-isolate and get tested if they become symptomatic.

 

·         Freeman Catholic College and Mary Immaculate Primary School

o    NSW Health has completed contact tracing at these schools and has identified students who are “close contacts”;

o    Students identified by NSW Health as “close contacts” have been advised by NSW Health to self-isolate and get tested;

o    Students and families at Mary Immaculate Primary School in Stage 3 who are currently self-isolating have been advised to continue isolating up to and including 7 August 2020;

o    All other students are required to monitor for symptoms and self-isolate and get tested if they become symptomatic.

 

Therefore:

-          any players who attend the above two schools who have been identified as “close contacts” and are self-isolating are not permitted to participate in football until they are no longer required by NSW Health to self-isolate;

-          the teams that players who attend the above schools usually play in can continue to participate in football as usual, minus any players who are self-isolating;

-          all players who attend the above schools can continue to participate in football as usual, except those who are required to self-isolate;

-          players who are siblings of students in self-isolation are permitted to continue to participate in football as usual, unless advised by NSW Health to also self-isolate; and

-          all players should continue to monitor for symptoms and self-isolate and get tested if they become symptomatic.

 

Affected clubs who are unable to field teams as a result of the above should contact us immediately to discuss the possible postponement of matches this weekend.

 

Please share this information with your members.

 

Regards,

Salv

Any clubs that may experience such issues are encouraged to contact the MFA as early as possible so alternative arrangements can be made (if possible).
 
One recommendation that we do make is that clubs refrain from opening changerooms (with the exception of toilets) if this is not currently in place.

Please also refer to your emails for further COVID-19 updates that have been sent from Macarthur Football Association (e-newsletter - Update July 2020).

return to play guideline summary

Returning to the sport we all love might not look the same as it did before COVID-19, but it is really important to adapt and be flexible. 

Before we return to play though, we have to shift our focus on return to training. It is time to dust of the joggers with group sport and fitness to officially resume for our club week commencing 15th June (subject to phase 2 restrictions of <20 people per group). Campbelltown Council has given us approval to use the fields in accordance with FNSW guidelines and our return to train safety plan.

Please familiarise yourself with the new norm by clicking this link so you know what we are expecting of our members, supporters and volunteers when they arrive at our grounds.

Also please check your training location to ensure you know where your team will be training and use either team app, majestri or a physical copy (click here to download) to track attendance of your players as per requirement.

tuesday v 3

Really important is to remember to have registered on both our website and on playfootball.com.au. You need to have payed your registration or have a payment plan in place as well as a FFA player ID card, as otherwise you will not be able to take the field.

Help Stop the Spread - COVID19 FFA update


TO ALL OUR MEMBERS, 
PLEASE READ THE BELOW  COPY RECEIVED FROM THE SALV, GM MFA and the FFA CIRCULAR from today (updated 17 March 2020)

Herlp stop the spread  Covid 19


The MFA can confirm that the FFA has suspended all football related activity until 14 April 2020, as detailed in the attached circular.

 

The suspension commences midnight tonight (18/3/2020) and includes:

 

  • All training, trials and official matches, inclusive of FFA Cup, NPL, SAP, AYL and MFA Competitions;
  • All Meetings, events and gatherings; and
  • All Education and participation programs.

 

For the avoidance of doubt, there are no exceptions. All activities scheduled prior to 14 April are not to proceed. Some activities, such as meetings, may be conducted virtually.

Any football activity which takes place during this period is not sanctioned by the Association nor Football NSW and, therefore, the Personal Accident insurance cover that is provided as part of a player’s registration will not apply.

We all share the same passion for our game and are all equally disappointed by the position we find ourselves. Unfortunately this unprecedented situation requires drastic action.

The COVID-19 outbreak has clearly affected us all. That said, and as I am sure you would all agree and appreciate, we all play our part in minimising its spread so as to bring it under control as soon as practically possible. Parallel to all government and community announcements about ‘social distancing’, good hygiene practices, football and indeed all sport has a role to play amongst our members and all involved in the game.

 

The FFA, Football NSW and local Associations are engaged in regular dialogue and will continue to update the Football Family as new information comes to hand.

 

We do not have answers to many questions at this point, however we are developing a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) guide to assist you all and will have this available shortly.    

 

In the interim, our priority is to develop an enjoyable competition for the Football Family within the timeframes we have available.

  

Again, the MFA will continue to keep members informed on this continuously evolving issue.

 

We thank everyone for their understanding and cooperation.

 

Information on COVID-19 is available at the Office of Sport website . This includes advice and resources for sport and recreation organisations which may be of use.

What is our goal

Eschol Park Football Club was officially formed in 1983 (as Eschol Park Soccer Club) and has been a proud member of the Macarthur Football Association since that time.   The club was setup to provide a safe place for the local children to go and play soccer.   This has been achieved and is proudly maintained by the ongoing committee, testament to our success is the number of past members who are now bringing their children back to play at the club.   Our club participates in the Macarthur Football Association winter competition, hosting players in all age group competitions from Under 6 to Over 35.   We also host our own summer competition with competitions for Under 6 Mixed, Under 7 Mixed, Under 8/9 Mixed, Under 10/11 Mixed, Under 12/13 Boys, Under 12/13 Girls, Under 14/15 Boys, Under 14/15 Girls, Under 16/17 Boys, Under 16/17 Girls, All Age Mens, All Age Ladies and All Age Mixed.   Why not give Football a go this year, come and join a great family club!
