Just a gentle reminder now that the football season is upon us, that while sportsgrounds are in use, there are to be no dogs on the fields. This includes leashed dogs.

For further information, see the ACT Government website or their Frequently Asked Questions on Dogs.

To summarise:

Dog prohibited areas
Dogs, except for assistance dogs with permits, are not to be taken:

  • onto the grounds of a child-care centre, preschool or primary school

  • onto a field or playing area where formal sport is being played
  • within 10 metres of a designated play space (if children are playing on it) or a fireplace (or heating appliance) designated for cooking

First Aid and Emergency Response Co-ordinator Training

The AFL season is fast drawing upon us and the Belconnen Cats and Magpies Junior AFL Clubs are working together to provide access to a one-day training course for parents, carers and players.

Two very experienced presenters who are working in the field of Sports Medicine and Exercise Science will provide training and information in First Aid, CPR, Concussion Management and Emergency Response Co-ordination.  The course will be facilitated by Sports Medicine Australia, a Nationally Recognised Training body, hence attendees will receive formally recognised First Aid and CPR qualifications.

There has been a significant reduction in the course price for our clubs. The clubs are also hoping to be able to provide some subsidy to attendees in return for services to the clubs.

We are working to have 2 nominated people who hold first aid training for each team this year.  These are life skills which we all should possess as one never knows when they will be in the situation where intervention is required.  This is a simple way to upskill and support your club.

Registration: https://sma.jobreadyrto.com.au/apply_to_course/12797

To register you will need a USI (unique student identification number)
