    If we get the green light for a start at the end of May or early June. How many weeks will teams need as a preseason before the season starts

    Double edged sword isn't it. More prep time = an increase in congested fixtures whereas less prep time = reduced congestion. Considering injury risk would be biggest worry I would probably prefer a couple weeks prep and then realistically treat the first 2-3 games as 'trials' physically and mentally rather than have a little extra training but have to play 3 games every week

    In the NPL this season, reserve grade and 18's are able to use 5 substitutions off the bench. Maybe adopting this rule for one season would alleviate a lot of pressure on fitness levels and injuries in the lower divisions

    I think thatís a fair idea. 2 weeks pre season then into it

    Does anyone know how some ZPL or ZL clubs will manage physical distancing rules if a comp re starts? Grounds like Kotara, Swansea, Connolly are public space. Is Newcastle Football leaning toward pulling the entire season for their Interdistrict clubs from 6s to Zone? Surely Senior Zone League games could be relocated to grounds with one entry/exit. Not NPL grounds but if Mayfield Girls are cancelled on Sundays could it host an alternate week and host Kotara? Garden Suburb? Administrators need to think big picture.

    I donít think they pull that big a crowd that people canít just spread out. Before the lockdown one of the original rules were 500 people in an outdoor area. This would cover it off

    No plans that I have heard to pull the seasons for U6 through Zone. Once you get to U12's the issues for crowds are the same as Zone. If one comp goes ahead they all will.

    I think the biggest issues for social distancing will be the mini-roos games. Going to need to be some big changes in scheduling at some of the bigger clubs to make that work.

    The National Cabinet meeting last Friday also said children's sport should be prioritized.
    I'll be interested to see how the plans develop for miniroos, NPL youth & community football.

    I'd put money on them all being started at roughly the same time.

    I hear some talk of not all 10 teams are going to play in this years comp once it starts back up. Could be a 7 or 8 team comp. Donít blame any club for pulling out if itís half a season with no final and clubs still having to pay full freight to the association. Plus all the other restriction.

    ZPL is blokes that want to play decent football but enjoy the social side. If you canít have the social side of it the majority of club will lose what makes them special

    It's just the Dudley ZPL and that clubs all age teams. The club based out of Redhead with the ZL3 and juniors is still in ATM. The ZL3 Will make a decision based on tonight's meeting. Although we feel July is too early to start giving the restrictions
