There are four key rules covering training, social distancing, hygiene and reporting and it is crucial for everyone to understand and follow them:
Get in, train, get out
- arrive dressed to play no earlier than 15 minutes before start;
- leave as soon as play finishes;
- children should be accompanied by no more than one parent or guardian
- parents should not spectate, they are advised to stay in their car
- there will be no change rooms available at Seaforth Oval
Strictly follow social distancing protocols
- People are to stay 1.5m apart at all times – no more than 1 person per 4m²
- All training is strictly non-contact, skills based. No tackling is allowed.
- Training groups must not be larger than 10 people (including the coach);
- Training groups can’t play against or mix with other training groups during the session. There can be no interchange of players between different training groups
- The practicing of throw-ins and heading is not allowed
Maintain good hygiene
- Teams MUST bring hand sanitiser for all team members to each training session;
- Wash hands before and after the session;
- Do not share drink bottles, bibs, goalkeeper jumpers, gloves or any equipment;
- Manage access to drink bottles so that social distancing is maintained;
- Cover mouth and nose with a tissue or your elbow (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze;
- Don’t spit;
- Toilets at Seaforth Oval and Tania Park are public toilets – try and minimise your use of them. They should be stocked with hand soap at all times. Always wash hands after using toilets.
Anyone who is infected or is required to self-isolate must inform the club immediately
- Of course, also follow all the government rules for self-isolating and reporting.
