Minyip-Murtoa has opted for stability in its pursuit of back-to-back Wimmera Football League premierships, with the entirety of the coaching group re-signing.
John Delahunty will remain at the helm as senior coach next season, with Tim Mackenzie and Dan Smith by his side as assistants.
The premiership-winning coach said he was happy to stay in the role, though football's future remained unclear.
"I'm happy to go around again, and hopefully we do get to go ahead, because who knows what's going to happen before round one," he said.
"It's going to be a long wait before we get to have a kick again, by the sound of it."
The Burras held restricted training sessions while the season hung in the balance to offer a chance for players to train and socialise.
Delahunty said the playing group would put the cancelled season behind them and re-group ahead of their next premiership tilt.
"It was a bit of a challenge (during the break) just with the unknown; like every aspect of life at the moment really. We still managed to catch up and train. We still got 15-to-20 people there just to give them an option (to do something)," he said.
"The general feeling within our playing group is that we'll treat this year like it never really happened and it sounds like we'll have the majority of our playing group organised for next year anyway."
Minyip-Murtoa president Scott Arnold said a majority of the playing list had committed to returning next season.
"It looks like we'll have a very similar playing list. Everyone seems to be really happy and content, so it just makes things easier," he said.
"Hopefully guys can just switch off now because it's been a long, drawn-out year for not a lot of outcomes."
Delahunty - a homegrown player - led the club to its first flag in 21 years last season, and has strong support by his side for the premiership defence.
Tim Mackenzie returned to the club in 2019 after a spell with Glenelg in the SANFL, while Dan Smith is a Burras veteran and previously oversaw the club's football program.
Though an overdue premiership flag unfurling was put on ice, Delahunty said the break would be a distant memory when they get to run out and represent their communities again.
"That was one of the real disappointments for me. It took me a long time to realise that until someone actually reminded me," he said.
"It's a bit of a shame.
"It will be special when we get to do that, and all of this will seem like a lifetime ago."
