Netball - Information and Registration

Harbourside Netball Pandemic Plan

Harbourside Netball have asked that all parents & caregivers of students confirm prior to registration that they understand any requirements that may be asked of them.

Please read the following and consider the commitments prior to registering your child.

Spectators will likely need to be kept to a minimum. If this is the case, you may only be able to have one spectator per player. We will be updated on this prior to games commencing.

Harbourside will be using the app iDMe for contact tracing. All spectators will need to download this app or be required to sign in at the manual register. At this stage they are looking at setting up registrations at both gate court enclosures and entry into the pavillion. 

Team Managers/Coaches will need to register their team at the office by ticking the team attendees on the team list that will be provided (this will replace the back of cards). Team Managers/Coaches will need to supply their own pen and will need to download the iDMe app to enter the court enclosure.

Umpires will also need to download the app to enter.

Time will be allocated between each round (40mins). Teams will be given 10-15 minutes to leave the facility following their games. The next round's teams will not come into the facility until 20 minutes prior to their game.  Team talks must be held off the netball grounds and surrounding areas.

Port a loos may be placed around to keep the facility clear of crowds. If courts are allocated to port a loos; members must use them & not other ones.

Teams may be allocated team duty to assist with contact tracing at the gate, cleaning rubbish off the courts, sweeping, and / or utilised as wardens to clear the grounds of people for the next round. Obviously, some of these tasks cannot be carried out by students so help will be required from parents/caregivers.

The canteen will not be used for teams to meet and eat. The canteen will be open; however, the food will only be consumed during the allocated time of the round you are associated with and will be eaten outside.

If any games need to be cancelled due to safety reasons, the points will be tallied as a 0 for all teams.
