FROM THE PRESIDENT
17 March 2020
Season suspended until 31 May 2020
To all PBCJAFC players, parents, carers and supporters,
The health and safety of our football community – participants, players, coaches, umpires, volunteers, officials and fans is paramount.
PBCJAFC is determined to be part of the whole of community response to slow COVID-19 virus down – and in doing so, help the broader community and our health systems to cope.
Following a series of meetings involving the AFL and all State and Territory CEOs, the 2020 season will be postponed unto 31 May 2020.
This will impact Community football, State League football and the national and state talent programs, all AFL and AFL State association managed or operated leagues along with the NAB AFL Auskick Centres programs currently operating or set to begin.
The AFLhas also strongly recommended that independently governed junior and senior leagues and associations postpone the commencement and/or operation of their leagues/associations until the same date.
This decision and recommendation covers AFL community matches, AFL community training sessions and face to face AFL, WAFC and SANFL education courses.
We are a game, but we are not the main game.
The main game is looking after the community and that is the clear priority for everyone at the moment. For football families like all families.
The AFL said it will continue to meet with state and territory associations in relation to community football and will continually review this decision based on the changing circumstances and advice from government and relevant health departments and medical experts.
We will communicate any updates as soon as they are available.
Thank you for your understanding. Please stay safe and healthy.
GROUND STATUS: OPEN
