Hello SAFL Community !
I hope this message finds everyone in good health and spirits. Covid19 has turned the world on his head, but slowing sport on a global basis is bring some normality back to us. The government regulations currently in place have challenged us to adapt out programs. In the coming weeks and months we hope that regulations will ease further and allow us to get back to competitive games.
For our 2020 season 2 which begins in September, we will organise into 3 age groups and play on Sundays. Currently there is a shortage of community field space, so while our day & time is not our preferred choice, it is what we need to go with for this season.
U12 (grades 3-5th)– 12:30-2:30
U14 (grades 6th-8th) – 12:30-2:30
U18 – 2:45 – 4:45
Start: Sunday 6th September
End: Sunday 8th November
Location: Centaurs Sports Park
Based on the government regulations we need to maintain a 5-1 player to coach group size. We will focus on skills development and learning the playbook. Once we can get to competitive play, we will use our time mostly for competitive games.
For our U18 age group, we will continue to learn the skills in preparation for our tackle/contact season which is planned for early 2021. If we can get back to competitive play, the U18 age group will split their time between competitive games and preparing for the next contact/tackle season.
We are always in need of volunteers, so please reach out if you have time to invest in the your children and the community.
