Firstly, I would like to thank you ALL for being very patient during this extraordinary time and hope that you and your families are all safe and well.

Also thank you to everyone who has completed our first-ever online survey, this has enabled us to ask our members the necessary questions which have helped us with preparing the return to the training schedule, extra help we may need from parents/guardians of our players and prepare our team entries which are due by Monday 15th June 2020.

I take this opportunity to also assure you all that the Melton Phoenix FC Committee have worked tirelessly off-field to prepare and implement our “Return To Play Plan” (RTPP). Our RTPP is very thorough, and although some of the new ways of operation may seem tedious, we need to adhere to all measures to ensure everyone’s safety is paramount and the longevity of the 2020 Season.

We have had regular correspondence from our governing body Football Victoria to ensure we adhere to the strict guidelines to enable the return to football.

This document communicates to our members just how we intend to implement our RTPP and to reiterate that we need to work together for this to work. I ask that you are patient and understand that everyone on the Melton Phoenix FC Committee, including myself, are volunteers and are working very hard to get all of your children and their smiling faces back onto the football field.

If you have any questions relating to our RTPP or any further concerns, please read the FAQ’s at the end of this document, or alternatively do not hesitate to contact me on 0406 420 890.

Looking forward to seeing you all soon.

Regards

Michelle Williamson

Club President
