Northern NSW Football will return to training from May 27, after the code's governing body released its 'return to training guidelines' on Friday.
David Eland, the Northern NSW Football CEO, said the guidelines have been distributed to all clubs and each club is now working with their local Zones and Councils to resume training when they are able.
"We understand that not all Clubs will return to training at the same time. There will be a staggered affect throughout the region due to individual Council requirements and communication with players and participants. However, we hope to see the vast majority back to training by early to mid-June," Eland said.
Football has been suspended since March as a result of the coronavirus outbreak. Northern NSW Football said in a statement on Friday, its priority since that time had been "to safeguard the health and wellbeing of the community and to undertake its social responsibility to do everything it can to slow the spread of COVID-19".
"Given that football is played outdoors the risk of infection is minimal and with the rate of infection greatly reduced, it is time to cautiously reintroduce football-related activity in a staged approach," Eland said.
Clubs and players will need to strictly adhere to the NSW Public Health Order to return to training from Wednesday next week, the code said.
NNSWF has developed its 'Return to Training - Level 1 Portal' to assist clubs in doing so.
The guidelines recommend training to be conducted in small groups of no more than 10 players and personnel, social distancing of 1.5 metres between players, non-contact skill training drills, minimal sharing of sporting equipment and no contact including tackling.
