Training can only commence when the club has fulfilled the obligation of a Government Mandated COVID Safe Plan. We will be aiming to have this done over the weekend – However, you will be notified once you can commence training. Those who have training scheduled on Teamstuff for next week, be aware that if we haven’t fulfilled our obligations trainings will be cancelled until we have done so.

There is to be no more than 20 players in a group. If you have more than 20 you will need to roster off the extra players each week. This can be done in Teamstuff.

You are not at any time allowed to move your designated zone – even if no other team is on that zone. Each team will have a training in front of goals, if you have been giving a second training it will be in the middle of the oval). You will receive a new training schedule asap.

Henley Sharks COVID-19 UPDATE - APRIL 2020
With the COVID-19 pandemic evolving at a rapid rate, we as a club are following the latest guidance from the Adelaide Footy League and SANFL Juniors. We are taking extra precautions to ensure the safety of players, members and our local community. Both the Adelaide Football League and SANFL Juniors have suspended all competition until May 31st with a tentative new start date proposed for the second weekend of June.
With player membership, registrations and any fees that we have received for the 2020 season the committee are currently reviewing the situation and will be communicating information to all its players and sponsors in due course.
As a club, we have taken the step of cancelling/postponing ALL trainings, trial games and club events until Monday 4th May, at which point we will reconvene to reassess the situation for our club. This includes all junior and senior trainings, all trial games, all Auskick sessions, and all club events.
This decision has not been made lightly, but we are confident that we are acting in the best interests of our members, players, supporters and the broader community and have made this decision after consultation with all the necessary evidence regarding best practice at this time. The welfare of our players, members and community is the foremost priority in our minds at this time.
We encourage all our club community to stay safe and to reach out if there is anything we can do to help lend our support over the next few weeks.
