Lets play football again!

The long wait is almost over! Aunty Cindy and Daddy Bloomfield announced that we can play football again! With mass gathering restrictions will be raised to 100, Capital Football have confirmed the 2020 season is finally kicking off.

It’s now time to clean off your boots, go for a run (or in my case casual walk) and make sure you are registered in Comet.  See our registrations page of seniors & juniors

Key dates –

  • From midday 29th May – your team can train together again in groups larger than 10 (talk to your manager, coach or grade coordinator for specific details relating to your team)
  • 6th/7th June – Senior and Youth seasons kick off
  • 13th June – Junior season kicks off

 

First round draws will be published once Capital Football release them on the 30th of May!

 

Thanks to our volunteers, our fences have been put up and we are currently restocking the bar. Our club rooms will be open for post-match shenanigans from 6th June. There may be a few limitations but we will do what we can.

 

The health and well being of our club members is paramount, so keep an eye out for health and safety requirements. It is a key focus for Tawa AFC so we have invested in some things to help – watch this space, more to come.

 

We can’t wait to see our football family.

Tawa trains again

We are excited to announce that our teams can hit the fields again!

WCC and Tawa have agreed a safe way to train again. There are a couple of things that we still have to do. That being said, the blistering speed of chasing down a through ball can once again be had. Pleased for all of us to get back out there with our mates to play the game.

Few things that we have to do:

  • Training groups can not be more than 10: If you have 15, split into 2 groups. Make sure those groups don’t swap or change. They must maintain 2m social distancing
  • Sanitise our hands: Tawa have purchased plenty of sanitiser for all teams junior and senior. If in doubt, SANITISE. Sanitise before and after training
  • Contact Tracing: For now, a paper form will be circulated around. We are registering for iDMe, the New Zealand Football app. We only need one, if worried though lets use both. With the paper forms, please take a photo after every training and send to admin@tawafootball.org.nz
  • Wash the equipment: Keep the equipment clean and don’t share the equipment between groups of 10

These are all in line with the guidance of MoH and the government. We think these are prudent steps for us to stay safe during this time. I am so very pleased to be able to hit the football pitch again and I hope you are too!

COVID 19, Tawa & Training

Wow what a year 2020 is turning out to be. I hope everyone is keeping well and looking after themselves through the COVID crisis. I want to provide as much information as I to share with you what Tawa is doing to keep our community safe in the transition back to football.

Tawa AFC doesn’t endorse any training under level 2 until the 25th of May. We are going to review this regularly and will update you as things change. There are many things that we must do as a club to get approval prior to starting club training.
