    • Parents and carers of players must complete the contact register at the facility on arrival (more details about this process will be included closer to season start)
    • Anyone attending the facility must adhere to social distancing of 1.5m distance from each other when not participating in the “field of play” (talk to the coach if you are unsure where the field of play is). The field of play incorporates changerooms for players.
    • No sharing of protective equipment (helmet, pads, gloves, protectors). Bats must be wiped down with sanitising wipes if being shared. The club will not be able to provide any protective equipment for communal use within teams.
    • No shining of the ball with saliva or sweat
