Training Restart

There has been a lot of work going on in the background as a result of the State Government’s easing of restrictions. The executive and sub-committees have designed plans, processes, and systems to meet local government and health requirements in order to provide a safe environment for training to recommence.

Several trial sessions will be conducted next week with select groups to test these procedures.

Subject to receipt of final approvals by the City of Monash, all teams will be able to recommence training on a modified schedule from the week commencing June 1st in accordance with these policies and guidelines.

You will receive further communications directly from your playing unit committee’s, however, please find below links to these policies and guidelines for modified training:

Note these policies and guidelines will be updated as regulations and conditions change.
