As COVID-19 restrictions are gradually lifted in each state, Australian Calisthenic Federation (ACF) understands that all clubs and members are keen to resume classes as soon as possible.

It is imperative that as we get back into calisthenics, it happens in a safe and healthy manner and in full accordance with the relevant State Health Department advice.

Sport Australia recently released a Framework for Rebooting Sport. State and Territory Governments will determine when sport can resume at each level outlined within this framework. 

As a National Sporting Organisation, ACF request that all states ensure they understand this framework and develop appropriate return to sport plans. The Sport Australia Return to Sport Toolkit can assist with development of these plans and related resources to ensure clubs and coaches are meeting all requirements to resume activity safely.

Each club will need to appoint one person to oversee the implementation of hygiene practices, physical distancing measures, attendance registers and any other required actions. If clubs have any questions around what level of activity is allowed and what measures need to be put in place, please contact your State Member Organisation to seek clarification.

As always, we highly value the contribution of all coaches and volunteers in our calisthenics community. We appreciate the extra work that will be required to resume calisthenics activity during this COVID-19 pandemic. The health and safety of everyone is always our priority. We thank you for this extra effort and wish you all the best in getting your club back up and running.

Please also note that given the ever changing environment and the uncertainty around state border closures, it is difficult for ACF to make any decisions about events and competitions at this time. Unfortunately we have had to cancel our 2020 National Championships and we are awaiting a decision regarding whether the Pan Pacific Masters will go ahead. We will provide further information as it comes to hand.
