**2020 season postponed**


Please find attached a statement relating to the postponement for all 2020 AFL Barwon competitions, including Auskick and school programs in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

This decision has not been made lightly and has been made in full consultation with the AFL, AFL Victoria, Netball Victoria, Government and health authorities.  We understand that there will be further questions related to this outcome and have begun planning for the changes.  Over the coming days and weeks, AFL Barwon staff will work with you all to provide further clarity and advice that can help prepare you for the changes. 

AFL Barwon has set up a frequently asked questions section on our website that clubs can utilise and navigate through the changes.  This will be added to as more information is clarified.  Please click the following link to access this here https://wp.me/pacu8E-2aW

On behalf of AFL Barwon, I would like to personally thank the many people I have spoken to prior to this announcement for their unwavering support given the current situation.  The safety and welfare of our players, volunteers, officials and their families, along with all stakeholders remains AFL Barwon’s number one priority.
