Wagga District Junior Football Netball League has urged parents to be responsible in their actions to ensure the season runs its course with confirmation games will proceed from this Sunday.
While AFL Riverina has delayed its senior season until next week, WDJFNL executive member and Turvey Park junior president Darren Wallett said he was "rapt" when news came through on Tuesday a season will take place.
"Our club was as keen as mustard for the season to start, and parents were keen for their kids to play," Wallett said.
"To be honest, it was a really good outcome for the kids. Some of the administrators are probably finding it a bit overwhelming with the effort that goes into it, but it's about the kids and that's our job as volunteers.
"I haven't spoken to any parents who wants it cancelled. All these kids go to school together, it would be odd to suddenly say you can't play sport together.
"If the government changes its position and circumstances change with Covid then fair enough, it needs to be reassessed, but at the moment I don't see any reason why the kids can't get back into sport."
Wallett expects little to change for players aside from social distancing, and the requirement to sanitise.
"Training is drop off and pick up only, kids have to sanitise on the way in and social distance and the equipment has to be sanitised," he said.
"Most of the kids will turn up dressed, play their game of footy and go home.
"Our club's understanding is social distancing is the responsibility of individuals, not the clubs. The clubs have to put signage up around the grounds advising what the guidelines are, and then it's up to people to comply.
"That was one of the major concerns with the clubs, that they would have to walk around and police it, but our understanding is that's not the case."
Wallett said it's up to parents to abide by guidelines and avoid putting the season in jeopardy.
"We communicate with parents constantly, our expectation is parents will already know what the guidelines are before they come," he said.
"We've asked all our parents if their child is sick in any way they don't attend training or games. And if any of our coaches notice a child is ill, we'll notify the parents to pick them up.
"The message is pretty clear, if everyone does the right thing we should get through the season. It comes back to personal responsibility, the parents have to be responsible and understand the consequences of not being responsible, and that it affects everybody."
