AFL South East met with member clubs this week to review the impact of the current lockdowns on the 2021 season.
We advise that the junior home & away season will be extended to accommodate additional home and away rounds. Previously lost Home and Away Rounds will be reinstated. The number of rounds reinstated will be dependent on when the season can recommence (as illustrated below).
If a recommencement of the season was able to occur on either August 1 or August 8 the following would occur:
If a recommencement of the season was able to occur on August 15 the following would occur:
If a recommencement of the season was not able to occur by August 22nd the official junior season would be abandoned.
Our position is consistent with the AFL Victoria COVID by-law framework and provides a level of certainty for all players, volunteers, and parents as to what the remainder of the season will look like.
