Winter Season - Update 22nd July

BNA COVID SAFETY COMMITTEE

REMINDER OF OUR COMPLIANCE OBLIGATIONS


As a Netball provider Fever Netball Club is bound by the guidelines and regulations of Netball Australia, Netball Queensland and Brisbane Netball Association.  We must follow their directives to be in compliance with the requirements of the Queensland Government to be allowed to continue playing and training for netball.


What this means for everyone involved - including parents is;


  • Any Family Illness - If anyone in your household is potentially exposed to Co-Vid 19, displays any symptoms of Co-Vid 19 infection, has travelled overseas or within Australia to a hot spot area or has been ordered to self isolate/quarantine - you MUST notify your team coach and manager IMMEDIATELY and NOT attend any games or training sessions until you have tested negative to Co-Vid 19.  As a club we are strongly encouraging anyone feeling unwell at all not to attend and risk infecting others.

  • Players during play - Should a player show symptoms of Co-Vid illness during a match they will be sent to the sick bay area at BNA, the match will be cancelled and all participants from the game including players, umpires and officials will be sent home and ordered to self isolate until testing negative to Co-Vid 19 and providing a medical clearance.

  • Five Spectators rule - every team (except Falcons) are only allowed FIVE spectators per match TOTAL.  This includes parents, siblings, players from other teams etc.  Each week team managers are allocating the families allowed a spot to attend.  So far compliance with our families has been pretty good however BNA are going to have to remove this rule and not allow any spectators if breaches continue to occur so please ensure you only attend when permitted.

  • QR code - if you are the permitted spectator we need to track your attendance via the QR code or register available on Court 8.  Please ensure you sign in and out to allow for contact tracing.  This details are only held for tracing purposes and only for 56 days.

  • Allowable Zones - Each court also now has defined Spectator Zone, Player Zone, Coach’s box.  NO PARENTS are to be in the Player Zone and players MUST stay in the Player Zone. The Coach must also stay in the Coach’s box.  Reminder that all players/coach’s/managers are to socially distance themselves when off the court (1.5m).   The Spectator zones are clearly marked and ensure social distancing.

  • Meeting Point - Finally observe the CLUB MEETING POINT.  For teams playing/training on courts 1-4 this will be on the footpath of Rode Road at the end of Court 1.  For teams playing on Courts 5-14 it is the grassed area below the bottom car park.  For every match and training session please assemble here and do not move to the courts until the roll is marked for attendance and the coach/manager escorts you to the court.  This is also where the team will move to at the end of matches for post game conversations before leaving.  We ARE NOT permitted to have teams on the sideline at matches and/or training if other teams are on the courts.  The mantra is Get In, Play/Train, Get Out.  Parents are welcome to wait in the car and collect children by driving to the meeting point for drop off and collection - please ensure the adult supervising is aware your child has arrived/ is leaving.


Please know the purpose of these regulations are to ensure we all keep safe and healthy while still permitted to continue enjoying our sport of netball.  If we fail to abide by the regulations we risk the cancellation of the netball season at BNA.
