We expect to be getting back out on the pitch again soon!
We are anticipating advice from the state government, Football NSW and NSFA this coming week. The Kisso committee are working to ensure everything is ready, once we get the green light to play. Back in March, we were set for a great season; our teams were formed with managers/coaches lined up and getting trained, some training had started, and good growth in player numbers. All of those pieces are still in place, ready to be revived as soon as we can.
If you don’t have a manager or coach/assistant for your Miniroos team yet and think you might be interested, please contact Richard at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Players and teams will need to modify their training sessions to accommodate the government guidelines. This will mean breaking larger teams into groups of 10 during training; thankfully our coaches have INSPIRE coaching sessions tailored for that (all coaches please sign up for that great resource). NSFA have also applied rules on the number of teams training on a ground, requiring no use of change rooms, and staggered sessions to reduce the number of people at a ground at one time. The health and safety guidelines we are adopting to ensure a safe return to football are here. Stand by for news from your team’s Manager.
Finally, I want to say that it feels great to be able to email you with positive news. I’m hopeful things will start happening very soon. In the club’s long history, there has never been a year quite like this, and I’m grateful for the support of a strong committee and our fantastic Kisso community as we navigate these challenges together.
