2020/21 Season

Entry to the Hunter Sports Centre Glendale – Friday Competition Nights:

With our 20/21 season up and running, as you would all understand there are guidelines that need to be adhered to for COVID compliance as outlined below. Please familiarise yourselves with the process to enable an efficient carnival night:

  1. Access to the centre will be via the car access double gates, at the eastern end. (Access for major carnivals)
  2. One spectator entry per athlete unless volunteering (max 2 guardians/parents per family)
  3. Trial nights are not permitted this season, therefore only registered athletes are able to compete so please get your registrations in ASAP.
  4. Everyone (including athletes, parents/ guardians, and siblings), entering the centre is expected to sanitise and “sign in” via the sign in sheets which will be at the entry and controlled by COVID officers. (These records are for the purpose of tracing COVID if required and not for marketing).
  5. Steps after signing in and sanitisation:
  • Athletes – head directly to grass area in the centre of the track, age areas will be designated.
  • Volunteers – head to track meeting area on grass centre field and collect a .
  • Spectators – Turn right and move around the grass banked spectator area. Spectators must ALWAYS be behind the black fence surrounding the track, move clear of the access area. The seating area is not available and will be closed.

6. All spectators MUST comply with social distancing requirements, maintaining a minimum of 1.5m physical                 distancing.

7. Limited numbers allowed in toilets so please abide by the signage rules.

8. If have ANY symptoms of COVID-19 you must remain at home and follow the relevant health advice.

9. If you have been to any COVID-19 identified hotspots, please stay at home and follow the relevant health                        advice.

10. Sanitising stations will be located around the facilities, please utilise these.

11. If you have any queries, please discuss with a committee member or COVID Officer.

12. If any member is found to be not complying with these or other safety directions on the night, they will be                     asked to leave the facility immediately.

 

Please remember to view the results tab above which will be updated soon after Friday night carnivals.
