Coronavirus COVID19 Update - 16th March 2020

Dear Member,

The purpose of this post is to provide a current update to all our members in relation to the ongoing situation with coronavirus, Covid-19.

I have had discussions with the WAFC this morning to seek guidance on any updates that we may need to be aware of that would potentially impact Hammond Park Junior Football Club.

During these discussions I was advised that the recommendation to our club is to postpone all non-essential activities and re-assess this stance once further updates are received during this week. We are working on a week by week basis with decisions within the club and should maintain this process as new information is becoming available every few days.

The safety and well being of all our members is paramount and the decisions that we make from the information provided from the WAFC is to ensure we do not compromise this.

It is the decision of the club that we postpone the following planned activities for this week:

1. Training Sessions planned between 16/03/2020 – 22/03/2020
2. Club General Meeting on 18/03/2020
3. Meet the club event at Roar on Saturday 21/03/2020.

We understand this may inconvenience some members, but we feel it best to err on the side of caution and take recommendations from the WAFC.

In terms of our Football season, the AFL have come out today to advise that state based competitions will have a season but it will be delayed possibly to the end of May.

We have yet to receive official confirmation from the WAFC on how we will be impacted and expect to receive updated information in the coming days.

The club will be provided regular updates and we will communicate this to members where possible.

Should you have any further queries then please do not hesitate to contact the club.

Mat Smith
