The Committee thanks players, coaches and parents for following Council’s instructions to stay off the training venues this week, ensuring that the grounds are ready to be used this weekend. The result is that the grounds have had some relief and minor improvement.
At this stage and unless the situation changes due to more inclement weather, the home games scheduled this weekend will proceed as planned.
We will inspect the grounds after this weeks games have completed and await further instructions from Council regarding ground availability for training next week.
Some teams have already booked indoor venues for next week which is a huge assistance to again relieve the pressure on the playing surface and also provides the team with a confirmed indoor training venue. If teams have booked indoor sessions the information should be entered into the TeamSnap schedule for your reference.
Please note that the weather we have experienced this winter if affecting playing surfaces all around Melbourne and we are fortunate that we haven’t had any home games called off to date, as has been the situation at other clubs.
