Bendigo Amateur Soccer League continues to work towards holding a 2020 season, but is yet to put a firm date on when it would begin.
The BASL committee met on Wednesday night to discuss starting a season on June 28, a date proposed by Football Victoria for community clubs to return to competition.
"We discussed the challenges the initial return to training will first present for the clubs," BASL president Aaron Shooter said.
"There's quite a lot that needs to be put in place to meet all the required health and safety standards.
"We will then review what the target start date would mean for the league and come back and have an agreement from the committee in the next week or so."
There is also the essential process of clubs seeking written approval from their venue landlord, which for a lot of the time is local council, before they are able to return to training.
"These are some of the signs-offs we must get done to make sure we are all covered," Shooter said.
"Clubs will be in different positions based on where their venue is and how easy it is to have all requirements in place to get back to training."
Shooter was also concerned in regards to how long the league's different clubs had been able to train before the season.
"The committee will work with the clubs to make sure there's some equity as to how long they have all been training for etc," he said.
"We still think we can get up and running by 28 June or shortly after and put some sort of a season together."
BASL and the clubs are also reaching out to players and parents to gauge what their opinions are towards a season.
"We need to see how many people want to come back to train, some players and parents might have their own safety concerns," Shooter said.
"This is a process of the clubs reaching out to members to so see when it is they want to come back."
Financial concerns also exist as there will almost certainly be limits on crowds and other social distancing requirements on game day.
"We are working with the clubs to see what this means financially and what the overall outcomes would be for them."
