COVID-19 Wynnum Bugs – Return to Training
Golden Rules - Please read this all carefully
1. Be considerate.
A lot of work has had to go into getting things up and going again. The rules and conditions are not made locally, and we have done all we can to ensure they are as practicable as possible. We understand that this may cause frustration and feel clunky, but we are working through it. We will openly accept any positive feedback and welcome any offers of assistance.
If we cannot meet these obligations our ability to operate will be removed.
If you feel sick or are experiencing and Flu like symptoms “Stay at Home”
No training if players are unwell.
Make sure your child is ready to train upon arrival, has their own water bottle and does not need the toilet (only public toilets available)
Support the club’s “GET IN – TRAIN – GET OUT” Policy
Arrive just before training starts and be ready to pick up at the end of training
Use the “Drop and Go”
Kids to arrive ready to train
Drop off (entry) is via the Emergency Entrance gate near the big bins
If you must stay:
Stay in your Car or go for a walk
Do not park in the Drop and Go area’s
No Tailgate parties
Club and Canteen will not be open
“Pick up and Go”
Will be situated at the southern end carpark between the toilet block and the Mens Shed
Please do not hang around
At all times and for all parties the 1.5m and 1 person per 4m2 rule must be obeyed
Download and use the COVID Safe App (this is not mandatory) but the more that do the sooner we may see further easing of restrictions.
Obey all signage and follow all Traffic flows
Sign in at front of club, clean your hands and head straight to your designated training zone
Use the bathroom before you come down, the club will not be open and only Public Toilets available.
No contact with other players (high fives, handshakes etc.)
No spitting, clearing nose and cough into elbow
Don’t share your water bottle
Stay in your training zone at all times
After training head straight to the pick up zone
COACHES and MANAGERS
Regardless of what night you train your area must be roped off (cones will not suffice) with the appropriate signage in place. Cones can be used to create separate training zones within the roped areas. The Committee will ensure there is support and direction for this but please try and organise some help if you are the first group training.
If you are the last group training you will need to dismantle all equipment and place back in shed
Ensure you are registered as a volunteer, manager, coach etc on the Rugby Xplorer App as this ensure you are insured for COVID and other implications.
Complete the attendance register for yourself and your team (on table in front of club)
Attendence register – once complete, take a photo of hard copy; either slide hard copy under front door of clubhouse or or scan and email to email@example.com
Control participant numbers in your training area’s
Max number inside your space is 20 that includes all players, officials and parents for the young ones in the case of an anxious child. Parents should be encouraged to remain outside the roped area
Maintain safe distances between players at all times during training
Make sure players remain in their training zone at all times (no co-mingling)
Leave the training zone at the conclusion of training and take the players to the pick up zone.
You are responsible for the hygiene of your kit (balls and cones etc.):
Bleach Solution - Majority of rugby equipment
Alcohol Solution – Unsoiled hands and for making wipes for metal surfaces
Soapy Water Solution -Soiled hands and surfaces
Some useful guides are contained at:
The QRU also has a number of links on their website under the COVID section from a number of suppliers covering their specific equipment.
As for Training:
BYO equipment – balls, cones etc. (equipment in shed will not be available)
Non-contact including no touch football
Receiving and distribution skills in line with the 1.5m social distancing.
Defending with 1.5m distance
No contested drills, tackling, grappling, wrestling, body on body drills, no rucks, scrums or lineouts.
Training drills must be designed with social distancing measures in place
No standing around close to other participants during or in between drills (e.g. when waiting in line / at a cone)
No team huddles, handshakes, high fives etc
We would prefer that training at this stage is confined to the use of footballs (the Gear shed will not be opened)
Ensure no sharing of personal equipment including water bottles
Use the provided sanitation stations pre & post training
It is okay for kids to bring their own small bottle of sanitizer to use
