Player Vaccinations and latest news

Life at RED within the COVID-19 Protection Framework enables us to train & play football in 2022.



NZ Football has mandated that all players aged over 12 years and 3 months participating in any matches and training will require a valid My Vaccine Pass. Participants aged 5-11 are encouraged to be vaccinated, but it is not required. It is uncertain how long we will be operating in the RED setting - however with trials, trainings and the Summer Season already underway, Bay Olympic will be operating under these guidelines meaning all players over 12 years and 3 months will need to provide evidence of vaccination or medical exemption. This is to ensure that the game remains compliant with the Covid-19 Protection Framework and can be played in the safest possible environment. NZ Football has not provided guidance for football under other settings at this stage. Registrations for the season will open on February 21st 2022 - we will provide further details on this via the Club Newsletter.
