Currently our facilities remain closed to the public while we prepare for re-opening. As we navigate these new practises for our facilities the below may need reviewing and adapting- check back regularly for any updates.
Over the next week our preparation for re-opening will be a thorough cleaning of the whole facility including:
- Exterior – high touch points and dugouts
- Changing rooms
- Clubhouse – upstairs/downstairs – toilets
- Community House
- Turf surfaces
To ensure a manageable process, the opening of our facilities and ‘returning to play’ will be staged. Initially, there will be NO access to all Turf 1 facilities and Turf 2 dugouts, water fountains/taps, spectator stands & seats. These areas will be cordoned off for your safety.
NOTE: With NO access to dugouts – there will be NO covered space for your gear, only bring the bare essentials – leave stick-bags/bags at home or in the car! Bring a small waterproof bag for phone and keys.
Public toilet facilities ONLY will be available for use at this time.
Strict and ongoing Hygiene & Contact Tracing practises will be required for entry and use of the facilities – please see below for the protocols and processes.
Please check with Club Delegates for revised allocated training days during this time.
To ensure players are prepared for the Competition phase there will be a 3 week ‘Training Phase’ ONLY with competitions potentially scheduled to start June 6th for Seniors, June 8th for Secondary Schools and June 12/13th Youth & Juniors – Subject to change – please keep checking back here for updates.
At Alert Level 2 the current restriction announced by SportNZ is no training in groups (bubbles) larger than 10 persons – this is inclusive of coaches and spectators. We can have more than one “bubble” training at a time, however, those bubbles may not intermingle at any stage of the training and must observe social distancing rules. You may change the ‘bubble’ makeup for the next training day. This is subject to change on MAY 24th.
