Netball WA COVID-19 Protocols

Netball WA has welcomed Premier Mark McGowan’s latest announcement that as of 5 December 2020, particular businesses must maintain contact registers for WA Health Department COVID-19 contact tracing, if required.

If COVID-19 is detected in the WA community, contact registers help to protect us all by enabling the WA Health Contact Team to quickly identify and assist anyone that may have been exposed to COVID-19. To help, the WA Government has developed a free app, SafeWA, which will provide businesses with a digital contact register system. SafeWA is an efficient and safe way to record patron and visitor contact details where they can check-in, using the app. 

Under the latest restrictions, the state government has advised that Western Australians must continue to keep up physical distancing where possible and use good personal hygiene to better protect themselves and the general health of our community. 

Netball WA will continue to support our Clubs and Associations to implement and manage the protocols required for competitions to continue, and also provide ongoing information and support.

To ensure our sport continues to meet the conditions and restrictions of the WA Government, and to protect the health and wellbeing of our members, Netball WA has developed a number or resources as part of this framework to guide our Clubs and Associations:

These documents are supported by the State Government’s COVID Safety Plan Phase 4, COVID Sport and Recreation Guidelines Phase 4, COVID Sport and Recreation Safety Plan Phase 4, COVID Food and Licensed Venues Safety Guidelines Phase 4, COVID Food and Licensed Venues Safety Plan Phase 4 and Netball Australia’s Community Return to Play Guidelines.

This framework aligns to the Australian Institute of Sports recommendations to Government, and has been developed alongside our key stakeholders including Netball Australia, the State Government, other state sporting bodies and our Clubs and Associations, to determine the best approach for netball to continue under these parameters.

The health and wellbeing of our community remains at the core of our decision making, and it is critical that all players, spectators and officials adhere to this framework to ensure safe and sustainable netball.

Thank you again for your ongoing support, and we look forward to seeing you on courts.
