Warrnambool and District league president Kylie Murphy says other clubs, besides Nirranda, are weighing up whether or not to participate in 2020 junior competitions.
The WDFNL board and club presidents met on Monday night.
"There were a couple (of clubs) sitting on the fence but clubs were going to go back to talk to their committees," Murphy said.
"Otherwise we're still going for August 1."
The number of clubs involved in the junior competitions has reduced from 10 to nine with Nirranda opting not to play.
The Blues withdrew from junior competitions due to the uncertainty of the coronavirus pandemic.
Murphy said it would be a simple change of fixture.
"We'll just allocate Nirranda games a bye," she said.
It means Allansford will have a bye on August 1.
The WDFNL will have an eight-week fixture without finals so the bye won't effect the fairness of competitions.
It may impact the leagues' plan to have a junior club championship as one team won't have a bye.
Murphy said the board supported the Blues' decision to pull out of the junior competitions.
"I support their decision," she said.
"The board will support any club that makes that decision."
She said it was important to look after each other and the community.
The league president said she wasn't surprised by Nirranda's decision given she knew the club had been considering its stance for some time.
Murphy said the meeting was otherwise about preparations for the season which starts in less than a fortnight.
She confirmed there was no league meeting planned for next week so clubs would have to contact the board if they wished to opt out of competitions.
