COVID-19 Information- 27 April 2020

OISC like so many in the community is buoyed by the “flattening of the curve” and the reduction of COVID-19 cases in the community. With these fantastic results surrounding the reduction of COVID-19 in the community we hope that we can get back out on the field as soon as it is safe to do so. While we want to get back to Season 2020 as soon as possible, we cannot afford to race back too early and undo all the good work that has been done so far and so we are continuing to work with all our partners including SAASL, FSA, FFA and government to see us get back together as soon as it is deemed safe to do so.

There have been a number of media reports surrounding the potential relaxation of some restrictions surrounding outdoor gatherings and the recommencement of community sport in coming weeks. We will continue to monitor these and advice that is issued by both the federal & state governments and our associations and communicate any changes to members as soon as details are provided to us.

In the meantime keep safe and keep doing what you are doing to keep fit. We have set up a OISC Strava group to help keep everyone active and fit, hit the icon below to join up and be part of it.

SportSA has developed a list of six tactics to support your mental health through the COVID-19 situation. Check them out here: https://www.sportsa.org.au/news/the-six-stream-tactics-to-support-your-mental-health/

COVID-19 Information – UPDATED

Updated 11:00am, 18 March 2020

Given the quickly changing situation around COVD-19, OISC are keen to keep members updated around the status of trial games, competitions and training. The SAASLFFA and FSA have all issued updated communication on March 17 and 18, which provided the following advice:

  • Current Football SA administered “grassroots” competitions, including the FFA Cup Preliminary round  (OISC Vs. Adelaide Uni SL2) and Women’s Division 2 have been suspended until 14 April 2020.
  • Official Men’s SAASL competitions, including the Cup Rounds 1 & 2 scheduled to be played on March 21 and 28 and league competitions scheduled to commence on April 4, have also been postponed until after April 14 2020.
  • As stipulated by the SAASL and FSA communications, all clubs must cease ALL training (official and unoffical ad-hoc get togethers of players) until after April 14 2020. As a result there will be no training until after April 14, pending further notification from the leagues.
  • The Men’s SAASL season start date of April 4 is now impacted by this extended suspension and as such the league will not be commencing on that date. At this time SAASL propose a league commencement date of 2 May 2020 which will allow for a short pre-season period where trial matches can be played ahead of the season start. We are awaiting advice from the league in regard to any changes to the league fixtures. The Cup competition will remain suspended until further notice.
  • The Women’s League start date is further impacted by this and as such we will await further details from Football SA as to when the league will commence and impact to the league calendar with relation to postponed fixtures.

OISC is keen to ensure the safety of its members as well as the broader community during this important time and will continue to keep its members updated as the Australian Government and relevant football administration issue updated advice in the quickly changing circumstances. Please contact one of the committee for further information.
