USAFL Provides “Return to Footy” Guidance
June 5, 2020
Dear USAFL Members,
Please review the “Return to Footy” document for our latest guidelines to a safe return to Footy activities.
As stated in the document, the information provided here is a guide only. It is intended to be a suggested framework for engaging in football activity while meeting local recommendations. Where local information, guidelines, and ordinances differ from anything in the provided guidelines, please follow the guidance of your local health authority. If local health authority guidance differs significantly from the CDC or WHO guidelines, we recommend following the most restrictive guidelines available to maximize safety of players and community.
In addition to these safety guidelines, the USAFL will be forming a Safety Task Force focused on continuously evaluating and updating guidelines for Clubs as they return to football. To do this effectively, the USAFL is looking for volunteers to participate in the Task Force, particularly individuals who have public health and policy experience. If you are willing to participate and have expertise that would be beneficial to the Task Force, please send a brief introduction to email@example.com.
To streamline the communication and to provide the most up to date information, we are asking that each Club nominates a Safety officer. This person’s role is critical for implementation of the Safety guidelines and regular communication with the USAFL Safety Task Force. The details are included in the document under the Club Safety Officer section.
Please contact your Regional VP with any questions at all or concerns.
Thank you and best of luck as you consider a possible return to football for your club.
