To all Titans & Families,
Please see the letter from our President on the status of the 2020 season for Titans FC.
To all our Titans players, families, buddies and committee members
I am writing to provide some information in relation to the Titans participation in the proposed shortened 2020 football season.
After much consideration and consultation with health professionals, Sutherland Shire Football Association and the Titans Executive committee, it has been decided that Titans will not be participating during this shortened 2020 season due to the risks and restrictions associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. It has been a very difficult decision to make as we know how much football means to our players and their families, but the most important consideration must be the health of our playing members.
A large number of Titans players are in a high risk category in regard to their health. The expert advice we have received is that we would be exposing our players to an unacceptable risk on game days due to the close contact between players and also the buddies. Although teams from mainstream clubs will commence playing (with social distancing) in a shortened competition from 4 July, we cannot expect that Titans players will be able to maintain these social distance requirements on the field.
We absolutely understand how disappointing this is for many of our members and their families, as the Titans players love their sport and look forward to the routine of playing every week. However, we feel this is the safest option and the right decision to make for our club at this very difficult time.
All players who have paid the 2020 registration fees ($100) will be refunded in full, excluding the Active Kids voucher.
We will come back bigger, better and SAFER in 2021 and look forward to welcoming everyone then.
Sutherland Titans F.C.
