Dear Players, Coaches and Managers, Parents and our wider CPFC Family,
As I am sure by now you have read or heard The Football Federation (FFA) the national governing body of our game has suspended all Grassroots Football Activities from Wednesday 18th March until Tuesday 14th of April due to the current COVID-19 (Corona Virus) outbreak:
What does this mean for our Association, our competitions/leagues and our club ?
• Effective immediately, all games, training and other football activities must cease; until 14 April at the earliest.
• No competitions will commence at this stage and the St George Football Association is currently working on a revised competition structure based on this directive. A meeting with Club Presidents is scheduled for this Thursday 19th March, where an update will be provided and discussed.
• Any football activity which takes place during this period is not sanctioned by the Association nor Football NSW and, therefore, the Personal Accident insurance cover that is provided as part of a player’s registration may not apply.
As you would appreciate, we are working with our state governing body, Football NSW, who is in turn constantly liaising with FFA and relevant government agencies, and everyone is committed to keeping you informed and up to date in these rapidly changing times.
While we would all agree and appreciate, we all play our part in minimising its spread so as to bring it under control as soon as practically possible. Parallel to all government and community announcements about ‘social distancing’, good hygiene practices, football and indeed all sport has a role to play amongst our members and all involved in the game.
We will provide updates to all our members via our website and Social Media platforms so that all our members are aware and up to date with the latest news.

Stay safe and we can’t wait to see you soon!
Yours in Football,
Carss Park Football Club President
