Effective immediately, and until further advised, the key changes that we encourage all members of the football community to respect are as follows:

  • Based on NSW goverment directive adult teams and players registered to play must be fully vaccinated by the time we kick off around 20 October. Teams will be asked to show proof of full vaccination. We will let teams know how this will be done prior to kick off. 

  • Players aged 13-18 -We are currently waiting on advice from NSW government regarding  particpation of this age category. We suspect that one dose  will be ok to play, while waiting to get second dose. 12- 18 year olds that do not have at least one dose and who are not intending to get vaccinated will not be permitted to play in our competition. Junior Players aged 5-12 will be permitted to play.
  • Parents, supporters and clubs are asked to limit the number of people attending games to a minimum so as to avoid the congregation of large crowds around our football pitches. Where feasible, it is suggested that only one parent/guardian should accompany children to games. Furthermore, grandparents, aunts/uncles and other family members and supporters should remain home to assist in the prevention of community transmission. For those attending games, please practice good hygiene, social distancing of 1.5 metres between individuals, and as quickly as possible, ‘get in, play, and get out’ so as avoid any unnecessary co-mingling.
  • Similarly, all participants including players, match officials and spectators should exclude themselves from any football activity if they have attended any of the reported case locations on the NSW Health website
  • Where sufficient numbers to field a team cannot be achieved, work with the respective competition administrator (the club or Association) and prioritise delaying the game or event to another date, rather than using and mixing players from other teams
  • Players, team officials, parents/guardians and other club members must not attend training or games, if in the past 14 days they have been:
    • been unwell or had any flu-like symptoms, or
    • been in contact with a known or suspected case of COVID-19, or
    • any sudden loss of smell or loss of taste, or
    • are at a high risk from a health perspective, including the elderly and those with pre-existing medical heath conditions.
  • The number of people in a facility should not exceed the ‘one person per 4 sq metres of space to a maximum of 500 people. For games played at major recreational facilities and sporting stadia, QR codes should be used to record details of attending patrons and these can be developed for key games by Football NSW. 

Once more, Super 6 Soccer encourages everyone to respect the NSW Government’s amended guidelines and work with their respective Clubs/Association in providing a safe environment for our sport.
