FLC response to COVID-19 pandemic

March 25, 2020

Hello Footscray Lacrosse Club members and family,

This is an unprecedented time that we are all facing. An issue that is not limited to our community but to every community in the world. The Coronavirus Pandemic has presented and will present many more challenges to all of us.

On March 24, 2020, the Lacrosse Victoria Board met and discussed the implications that this Pandemic will have on the 2020 season. In alignment with government restrictions and health advice, Lacrosse Victoria made the decision to postpone the 2020 season until May 31, 2020. This includes all scheduled matches and club training.

Footscray Lacrosse Club fully supports Lacrosse Victoria’s decision. We will adhere to their direction and cancel all training until May 31, 2020 or until further information is made available to us.

The information provided to us is that the season may still go ahead. We will be posting weekly training programs via TeamApp. There will be different programs posted which will be tailored to either juniors or seniors. These programs will be designed so that you can complete them on your own. We are encouraging our members to post photos and videos to the club’s social media platforms of you all completing our training programs.

Finally, Footscray Lacrosse Club strongly advises everyone to adhere with the social-distancing and self-isolation messaging provided by the government and health experts. The health and safety of the community is paramount and requires everyone to adhere to the restrictions for them to be effective.

The committee and I wish you and your family health and safety over the coming months.

As always, we are available to answer any questions or suggestions you may have at any time. Please direct them to president@footscraylacrosseclub.com.au.

Regards,

Tim Lane

Footscray Lacrosse Club President
