Club Update - 24/03/2020
Following a recent meeting of the Joondalup City Football Club's Executive Committee. The club has moved into a state of administrative lockdown. This action has been taken in order to protect the long-term future of the club and its members. As of the 23rd March 2020, all registration payment plans have been paused, no new registrations will be taken and no de-registration requests processed.
Football West is in regular discussions with State, Federal and Local governments, plus Football Federation Australia, to see how they can best alleviate some of the pressures on the clubs, players and volunteers. Until we get a decision from the FFA, Football West and the lifting of any relevant Government-issued COVID-19 measures, we will remain in lockdown.
We will continue to keep our members informed of the latest development and guidelines. It is important that our club, players and volunteers abide by the health and safety requirements, including the postponement of all football activities.
We would like to thank our members for the continued support, patience and understanding that has been shown to date in these unprecedented times!
Finally, please everyone continue to follow the latest COVID-19 expert health advice and stay safe and healthy.

Message from our President - 20/03/2020
Dear Joondalup City FC members as you may well be aware the Football Federation of Australia (FFA) has postponed all activities involving 'grass roots' football clubs until Tuesday 14 April. This includes all competitions, matches, training, programs, coaching clinics, trial and other activations. The applies to every team at the club.
Our committee is looking to the 14th of April as a restart and will continue our season planning accordingly. If the season is further delayed or completely postponed, we will plan a course of action that will protect our members and the clubs cash reserves and other assets and issue a statement on how we will proceed.
We are committed to guiding the club through this difficult time and are very keen to ensure that once things are a little clearer, we are able to bounce back into operation and get our players back to training and participating the world's most favourite sport. Ideally this will still be in the 2020 season!
We will keep you all advised on any updates as soon as we receive them from the FFA and Football West.
Stay safe and we look forward to seeing you all at the club in the near future.
Julian Barley | President
Joondalup City FC
