As per NSW Government guidelines and directives from the NSFA and NSNA, all football and netball activity has been suspended until further notice (30th July at the earliest).
What does this mean for Chatswood Rangers?
- No matches will be played.
- No team training will take place.
- No players involved in training activity will be covered by the Personal Accident Insurance.
- All XLR8 (football) Programs have been cancelled.
- Club meetings must be held via Zoom or other video platforms.
It may still be possible for you to train and exercise alone, with family members or in small groups but you need to check current guidelines to ensure you are not breaching the public health orders. https://www.nsw.gov.au/covid-19
Below are some resources that might come in handy during this period…
Have a Zoom Session with Your Team
Consider setting up a one-time or weekly Zoom session with your team, to keep the players connected and maintain that dynamic. This might also inspire your team to stay fit, to continue football/netball skills individually but support one another virtually. It might be as simple as a check-in conversation, or perhaps add a bit of sporting trivia, a poll of players’ favourite teams and players, etc.

NSFA INSPIRE Coaching Resources (football)
INSPIRE aims to provide coaches of all levels access to a platform that will host coaching resources, video content and discussion forums to assist coaches in their season-long journey. Our mission is to better the footballing experience of both the coach and players by providing relevant, progressive and easy to digest content.
INSPIRE members receive a weekly email during regular season, providing coaching tips, interesting reading, and connections with other clubs and avid football volunteers. This is a great resource for registered coaches as well as for parents/carers/footballers keen to learn more.
Check out the Skills Hub for some drills and ideas you can incorporate into your coaching and/or your backyard/oval individual sessions.
