Safely Returning to Hockey in view of the COVID-19 pandemic

Plan

Put plans, processes and systems in place to meet local government and health requirements, and provide safe environments.

Prepare

Once COVID safety measures are in place, clubs resume training in line with advice from their state and territory governments and their COVID-19 Safety Plans.

Respond

When government restrictions are lifted, competitions can resume in a COVID safe manner and respond in line with their COVID-19 Safety Plans.

Recover

When public health officials determine that the outbreak has ended in the local community, clubs consult with relevant authorities to identify criteria for scaling back its COVID-19 prevention actions. Clubs will also consider which protocols can remain to optimise good public and participant health.

You should also stay up to date with the latest information from your state or territory governments, and look out for information from your State or Territory Member Association.
