 The following was decided effective immediately:

  • Premier division training is to continue on Thursday 19th March however the following applies
    • Training is not compulsory
    • Attendance is restricted to 20 people per group – training sessions are being modified to accommodate
    • Hygiene practices are in place: hand washing, no use of club bibs, no attendance if unwell
  • Senior – all other grades training has been cancelled for Wednesday 18th March however can continue* on the 25th March but the following applies:

    • Attendance is restricted to 20 people per group – training sessions are being modified to accommodate

*This situation is changing rapidly, and we are monitoring the situation continuously. As soon as the situation changes you will be informed immediately.

 

Currently we cannot make any financial decisions until we know more around the 31st May. Rest assured we will do the right and fair thing by all members once we know what is in store for the future of the season.

TO OUR MEMBERS:
COVID-19 is transmitted from person to person, usually when an infected person coughs or sneezes. Transmission may occur from contaminated surfaces, so it is important to frequently wash your hands.

 

Any members who have been in contact with a person with confirmed COVID-19 must not attend any training, grading, games or events conducted by Reds Hockey or any affiliated entities until 14 days after exposure to the infected individual, providing they do not show Coronavirus symptoms.

 

If you have recently returned from overseas, please ensure that you self-isolate and exclude yourself from all Reds Hockey events for a period of 14 days in line with the Australian Government’s notice on mandatory self-isolation.

 

 

PRECAUTIONARY MEASURES:

To protect yourself and others from infection practice good hand and respiratory hygiene including:
• cleaning hands with soap and water or alcohol-based hand rubs regularly;
• covering your nose and mouth with a tissue or flexed elbow when coughing or sneezing;
• to avoid additional contact we suggest teams don’t shake hands after games until the risk subsides;
• do not share water bottles or other items that require personal contact;
• do not share food containers between team members;
• avoiding contact with anyone who has symptoms such as fever, a cough, sore throat, fatigue, and shortness of breath;
• staying home if you are unwell – we recommend self-exclusion from training, games or spectating for any flu like symptoms

If you are feeling unwell, please see your doctor immediately. Before your appointment, please call ahead and advise of your symptoms and recent travel so necessary precautions can be undertaken.

As a club, we’re quite a close knit family type. The friendliness really helps with our on-the-pitch performance. Being part of Reds is really fun, I just enjoy the whole atmosphere.

We all get along, we are pretty good mates and a very social club. Reds also provide some great opportunities for those with the drive and passion to succeed.
