The GOTAFE Goulburn Valley League (GVL) remains committed to running a modified junior competition for the under-16s and under-18s football and 15 & under and 17 & under netball. At the last pr esident’s meeting, a working group made up by club representatives and GVL Board members, was formed to work through the action plan to return to play.
The start date will be July 25. The reasoning behind this is to allow clubs and the league time to correctly implement the updated Return to Play Protocols that were released earlier this week by AFL Vic and today by Netball Victoria.
The working group, chaired by GVL board member, Amy Marshall, will seek feedback from clubs and will then reconvene to make their final recommendations to the GVL Board.
GVL operations manager, Josephine Spencer said, “How a GVL Junior’s competition will look will be dependent first and foremost on State Government advice. We hope to be able to release details around how the competition will look as well as the fixtures as soon as possible. We know from feedback from clubs, that our juniors are ready to play, and we are doing all we can to ensure that we have everything in place at league level and club level to ensure the safety and wellbeing of everyone.”
