Light at the end of the tunnel – a COVID Update

Hervey Bay Bombers FC


Hello Bomber family,

Yes we have a start date to the season for all of our sides to resume on and after July 12!

It has certainly been a tough couple of months with no sport and especially no AFL. We have a training start date of June 8TH ** (updated)
This start date comes with restrictions however and we will work together as a club to weave ourselves through this process.

I will be calling a meeting of all head coaches on Tuesday 2nd June at 5pm to discuss and work through a training schedule to satisfy all sides with the current restrictions that we have to negotiate. It will mean training for divisions will be staggered over every day of the week at the start. This schedule will be decided by the coaches themselves and our players will be notified accordingly.

A slide show on all relevant COVID 19 instructions & protocols to commence training will be presented to coaches at the meeting. See attached posters for main guidelines.

I agree at the start this may look cumbersome but this situation we find ourselves in is a fluid one and restrictions are changing and being lifted all the time so we are optimistic by July 12th we will be back to some normality.
As for functions we are waiting for the green light for 100 people to be in attendance to commence functions. I apologise for the infrequent communication but it has only filtered to us intermittently.
We done to all Bomber players that are consistently training on their own to be fit and ready , we are certainly hungry for local footy action.

To our sponsors again – a big thank you for your perseverance but rest assured we have been promoting all of you through our social media sites and shortly will be giving you a huge profile on our new website which is nearing completion and will be ready to launch very soon.
We have some exciting news coming up and I will be filling you all in as the season draws nearer.

So please see posters attached & digest the information set out by the AFL so we are all on the same page. When fixture is released ( should be in the next 2 weeks) we will forward it immediately to all members.

Until then – ….GO BOMBERS!!!!!!
