GROUP 4's 2020 season is still alive but remains at the mercy of the coronavirus pandemic.
Group 4 chairman Ray McCoy said the intention is still to kick off the season on May 2 but that depends on what happens with the coronavirus.
"We have got to be flexible and remain positive," McCoy said after a Group 4 board meeting on Tuesday night.
The NSWRL has postpone all Community Rugby League until at least May 1, effective immediately, while all major competitions have been suspended until May 31.
The decision was made in partnership with the NRL and all affiliated states, and after carefully considering the advice from widespread consultation with the NRL's chief medical officer Dr Paul Bloomfield, government agencies and other key stakeholders.
NSWRL chief executive David Trodden said the recommendation covers all matches, trials, training sessions, courses and other club activities in NSW.
He said the decision was made to help slow down new coronavirus infections.
Community Rugby League involves more than 100,000 grassroots players across NSW - from under-6 to open age - and was due to kick off on April 4 but will now be delayed until at least May 1.
NSWRL's 13 major competitions have been suspended until May 31. The later date will allow teams to train and prepare earlier in May if Community Rugby League is cleared to resume.
These competitions include the Laurie Daley Cup and the Women's Country Championships, which involve Greater Northern Tiger sides.
Trodden said: "The situation regarding COVID-19 continues to change daily and we are very mindful of the need to be prepared, and take the practical, necessary measures required to maintain hygiene standards. At the same time, we also need to remain calm and not add to any sense of public panic."
