From the NFNL
On the back of the AFL Victoria return to train memo sent over the weekend, to avoid any confusion, until we have received the protocols and procedures to activate training, training is still banned until further notice.
All leagues are collectively working with AFL Victoria and I expect to have the protocols very soon. As you would appreciate, this only one component of a bigger picture which is still very unclear.
Please stay patient until we have more information, and we will be in touch when we have received the training protocols.
On the back of yesterday’s State Government announcement around easing some restrictions the eight metropolitan leagues met with AFL Victoria today.
The current position around training is that no sanctioned training should take place until “return to training” protocols are established, put in place and accepted by leagues, clubs and local council alike.
AFL Victoria is establishing these protocols and we hope to have these in the near future.
A number of considerations around health and safety protocols and insurance need to be worked through prior to training being sanctioned.
We have also been advised that player transfers will be re-opened soon and we will provide an update on both items as soon as this information comes to hand.
We have teamed up with Watsonia Physiotherapy to help you fix any pre-existing injury and/or importantly avoid future injury when we are allowed to get back on the field.
Players (or potential players) can have a 30-minute physical assessment that will be conducted through Telehealth video consultation. During the assessment, the players will discuss previous injuries, ongoing injuries/deficits and physical goals.
Initial Telehealth physical assessment and PhysiApp personalised exercise plan $30 Any further follow ups $30
Initial Telehealth physical assessment and PhysiApp personalised exercise plan + weekly follow ups over 5 weeks $75
The normal rates for Telehealth physiotherapy are a standard price of $68 so they are offering the above packages to the players at a significantly reduced price. If anybody would like to take up the offer, they can call to book on
0421 969 433 (Andrew – Physiotherpist) or 9434 3088 (clinic reception)
and mention that they’re from the footy club.
