We hope you are all safe and well.
Following the release of Football Victoria’s refund policy, the club has been able to process a partial refund to those who responded to our request to provide payment details.
In line with the FV policy, the average refund is just shy of 50% of the membership fees paid.
Given the circumstances which are unprecedented, the BSC committee has worked tirelessly to ensure any fees returned are made accounting for any fixed costs. These are significant and were paid as they always are ahead of the season start and before we knew the season would be cancelled. They included:
Season Ready items such as pitch hire at the Reserve and Beaumaris Secondary College, purchase of balls, playing shirts and training equipment, pre-season preparation costs, fees and permits
Covid restart costs including hand sanitiser, signage and other items to ensure we could resume safely.
Normal accounting, website and software fees
Our income was decimated by the loss of sponsorship, canteen and fundraising revenue.
Your committee’s overriding objective is to ensure we maintain the viability of the club. We are working on our 2021 plans as government restrictions change and to get all back playing again when possible in 2021. Look forward to seeing you in 2021, when we all hope we can get back to playing, in the meantime please stay safe and healthy. Kind Regards BSC Committee
