COVID Safety Plan for Training, Season Plan & SCHA Fees

COVID Safety Plan

 

The SCHA COVID 19 Safety Plan can be found here and has been developed in conjunction with Hockey Queensland and aligns with the Qld Government approved industry COVID Safe Plan for Field Team Sports. All members are required to adhere to these guidelines so that training can recommence and for the safety of all members.

 

The key points for anyone attending for training are:

 

IF YOU ARE UNWELL, DO NOT ATTEND TRAINING

  • Training groups are restricted to a maximum of 20 per zone (including coaches and managers)

  • No person is to enter any other zone at any time. If a ball goes into another zone it is to be retrieved at the end of the session or wait for it to be returned by someone in the other zone

  • Each zone has a separate entry and exit point that must be strictly adhered to (Diagrams 2 & 3)

  • Every one attending training must have their name and details recorded on an attendance register for each session by a club representative which then needs to be sent to SCHA (admin@suncoasthockey.com.au) within 24 hours

  • All players must arrive dressed for training and leave immediately after the end of their training session to enable the next group to enter.

  • The car park inside the fenced area and the veranda in front of the clubhouse will be closed. Entry will be via the stairs in front of the clubhouse and exit via the double gates at the canteen end of the clubhouse. (Diagram 1)

  • Training time on the field will be reduced to 45 minutes. SCHA has allowed a 15 minute window to allow 10 minutes for a group to pack up, clean their area and then depart and a 5 minute window for the next group to enter

  • Sanitising stations shall be available at all entry and exit points of the turf facility and fields. Handwashing is available in the changerooms along with toilets.

  • Clubs and users shall also provide sanitiser products for their training sessions.

  • No person (coaches included) can train in more than one zone on the same day (i.e.: Juniors cannot train with juniors and then train with seniors on the same day).

  • The only cleaning requirement we will ask of members is for the tops of the dugout walls to be wiped down by a member of the group once their training is finished. Spray bottles with disinfectant, disposable gloves and paper towel will be made available by SCHA. Please ensure paper towel and gloves are disposed of in the bins provided.

  • Facility will be commercially cleaned after any day that the turf facility has been used

  • No spectators. It is strongly recommended that Parents and Caregivers drop and go or wait in their car. If this is not possible at most 1 x parent or caregiver attend (no non participating siblings) and must remain in the dedicated Parent Zones.

I will be conducting the induction for club COVID Safe Coordinators and any members wishing to attend. This will be on Saturday, June 13, at 3pm. Please let me know via reply email if you wish to attend so we can ensure social distancing guidelines are adhered to.

 

We will also require assistance to set up the zones, sanitising stations, signage etc which we will do at the same time so any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

 

 

Just Hockey Hut 

 

In order to support Just Hockey and their willingness to be open during this training period for our members, access to Just Hockey will be available for anyone during their advertised opening times.  Please ensure, as per Diagram 1 (white arrows), you walk directly to the hut from the entry gate in front of the clubhouse.  Please follow the Just Hockey safety guidelines and ensure social distancing is observed at all times.  Once finished at the hut please proceed directly to the exit gates at the canteen end (southern end) of the clubhouse.

 

 

Season Plan

 

We understand that some members will want to see this information along with fees before deciding if they will return to play this year. Please be aware that this season plan outline may be subject to change as the draw can’t be finalised until final team numbers are known.

 

Brent and the sub-committee have done the best they can with the season plan (attached) to this point based on the team nominations from the start of the year. Subcommittee is to reconvene on 16/6/2020 to update on team nominations and change individual Division structures if required with a view to the draw being released in full no later than 1 July, 2020.

 

It is therefore vital that you let your club know if you are returning to play or not so that they can work out their team numbers to allow a draw to be finalised.

We are currently setting up a business directory on the SCHA website. The reason for this is twofold – (a) SCHA often gets Grants plus require other services and would rather put the business to our members than outsourcing further and (b) it would be a great opportunity for members to be able to utilise other members knowing the business stays within our community.
