As restrictions are being lifted and new updates released daily, we are working very closely with our governing bodies to have everything prepared for when we can get back on the park.

The Board will be meeting on June 25th to discuss all details and will hopefully have more certainty and clarity on defined guidelines which will allow us to schedule and resume competitions.

As soon as we have news for a return to play date you will all know about it! We are hopeful for mid to late July.

We are also awaiting decisions to be announced in regards to if and when there will be any Junior Rep Events rescheduled for later in the year.

In the meantime, we are aware that restrictions have been lifted for small training groups. At this stage, Redlands Touch WILL NOT be responsible for any teams or clubs that use our fields.

It is recommended all those who choose to train should comply with all government protocols and policies, including appointing a COVID-19 Safety officer, a log of all attendees, arrival and departure times, and a valid Covid-19 Safety Plan.

As a matter of best practice, we also recommend for all participants to join the COVIDsafe app LINK: https://www.health.gov.au/resources/apps-and-tools/covidsafe-app

Please also see QTF email below and approved COVID Safe Plan-MEMO attached.

QTF is excited to announce that the Chief Health Officer has approved a Sport Industry COVID Safe Plan that was put forward by State Sporting Organisations including QTF which allows flexibility on the number of people per playing space/zone.

On a touch football field, there is provisions for a maximum of two separate playing spaces/zones per field that can accommodate a total of 20 people per playing space, where you are compliant with the requirements of the approved COVID Safe Industry Plan and relevant health directions.
