DV Member Update – December 2020

COVID-19 Community Football Update

Below are the protocols that DVSRFC have put in place regarding training and COVID-19:

We have registered a number of COVID Safety Officers who have completed the relevant training and who have also been registered with the league being, Tony Hachem, Mick Houllihan and Jason Tarascio.

We can also confirm that both Dr Joe Juhasz and Chris Richardson have volunteered to be our club COVID Safety Officers who will be available at each training session.

Training will be on Wednesday evenings/nights and over 3 scheduled times:

4.30 pm to 5.30 pm

5.45 pm to 6.45 pm

7.00 pm to 8.00 pm

Note that the change-rooms and other facilities at Shelly Reserve will not be accessible.

In regard to the above sessions, there will only be 20 persons on the field in each scheduled time in 2 training sections plus coaches, i.e. 2 groups of 10 plus coaches.

We have a booking section on our website for the above sessions and it is imperative that you do register online for one of these time options. You can’t just turn up to training and expect to be included in one of the sessions.


Spectators at training will be limited and must stay behind the fence of the ground and respect and practise the social distancing requirements.

If you don’t feel well, i.e. you have a sore throat, dry cough and a fever, then please do not come to training and advise one of the COVID Safety Officers of your condition.
(This is very important and please practise respiratory etiquette)

If you have been at training and subsequently have the above symptoms, please do not come back to training and please get tested for COVID-19. If you do then test positive to COVID-19, please advise one of the COVID Safety Officers. The officers will then advise those who have trained with that person via the training register and those players will be required not to return to training and to get tested for COVID-19.

Other important key messages and items that will help protect you, your mate, your family and others in our community from COVID-19 that the club will implement:

There will hand sanitiser available at each session for players to sanitise appropriately.

  • Footballs will be sanitised prior to each training session.
  • You must practice social distancing while training which means no contact.
  • There will be no sharing of personal items so please bring your own water bottle.
  • There will be no high-fives, handshakes or other physical contact.
  • Players will be responsible for their own strapping.
  • Players and coaches must not spit or clear nasal passages while training.

Note: We are all still waiting on the powers of above to make their announcement after the 31st of May as to the direction of how the 2020 season will unfold for community football moving forward.




Dear All Members, 


With the spread of COVID-19 increasing across Victoria the Diamond Valley Super Rules Football Club has made the decision to IMMEDIATELY SUSPEND all training, practice matches and events until further notice.


The safety and welfare of our players, volunteers, officials and their families are our number one priority.


The Vic Metro Superules Board also met tonight to discuss the COVID-19 Pandemic, and would like to advise our position as a matter of urgently.


They also agreed that the safety and welfare of our Players, Official, Volunteers and their Families are our first priority.


The Board have therefore taken the precautionary step of postponing the start of the Season.


Please communicate throughout your teams and take the necessary action to ensure we as a club are not by our actions spreading COVID-19 throughout the community. 


We will update and keep you all informed on a weekly basis. 


Yours sincerely 


Tony Hachem
