Football is back!

26 May

Kia ora everyone,


Great news this afternoon from the PM that group sizes will be increasing to 100 at noon this Friday.

This is a great leap forward to getting the season underway in June. At this stage this still looks like our Saturday Junior and Youth (including Fed) on the 6th June, with our Seniors on 13th June. NRFL is looking like June 20th. We'll let you know as this is confirmed.

We are now waiting for updated information from NZ Football on mandatory contact tracing for all clubs and the council on field availability. We should have this information ready by the end of the week to share.

For those teams waiting to start training, we know you're itching to go. We are going to have limited training space for a few weeks as Ocean Downs (our new ground) isn't quite ready as they weren't able to complete this during COVID lockdown. We are working on alternate plans and will contact your coach and/or manager to advise the plan soon.

For those teams who have had clearance from us to start training, please note that the current restrictions and contact tracing requirements are in place this week still.

Thanks for your patience - not long now!
