Great news! We’ve just finished a meeting with Netball Victoria and………we’re on for this weekend!! Hooray!!!!
Please take the time to thoroughly read the information below as it’s all poignant to our weekend being a safe and successful one for everybody. Please pass it onto all of your members with the utmost urgency and thank you for their patience (and yours) as well.
FRIDAY NIGHT – 11/U COMPETITION
Our final round of the 11/U competition will be going ahead tomorrow night (Fri 18th) as planned. All players will receive a
participation medal from the umpires at the end of their match.
We will be playing both our Semi-Finals and our Grand Finals on the day this Saturday (19th) and every team will get to play two games, regardless of the Semi-Final results.
As with all of our Grand Finals, game times are slightly different to our usual weekly match times. We have done our very best to have
teams as close as possible to their usual game times.
COVID SAFETY PROTOCOLS
The following guidelines are from the Government, Sport and Recreation Victoria, the Council and Netball Victoria, all our governing bodies and all of which must be adhered to for the safety of all of you.
People need to be aware of the exposure sites that around Melbourne and need to get tested and/or quarantine if they have been potentially exposed. Please take a look through the list: https://www.coronavirus.vic.gov.au/exposure-sites
CHANGEROOMS – important
As we are also under the governance of the Council, we have been told that no more than 10 people can be in our pavilion at any time and
change rooms cannot be used. With staff already working in there, this means our change rooms will not be opened over the weekend and
people will be directed to the other toilets near the athletics entrances. There are two separate ones they can use – we will put signs up
**** PLEASE NOTE *****
This great news is due to the fact that there is NO CAP on participants in outdoor metro community sport at this very moment. HOWEVER, Netball Victoria have flagged with us that there is a very slim chance that there may be once introduced tomorrow morning. If this is the case (fingers crossed), we will have to re-assess then. But, for the meantime, we have been advised to plan ahead as if this is what we are all doing. Remember, this is all in place to keep us all safe – which we all want for each other.
We want to thank you again for your flexibility, understanding and support through all of this and know that you all share the excitement of having everybody out on court again – that is really the main thing!! Just remember that we still expect a high standard of behaviour from everyone – we should all just be stoked to be out there again!
Please don’t hesitate to be in touch if you have any questions at all about anything. I will be up all night and very early tomorrow changing MyNetball and ensuring the score sheets are ready to go.
Thank you all again.
