Return To Train Protocols

SDNA has worked with the Bayside City Council and Sandringham Youth Club to ensure strict protocols are in place as we return to train at Thomas St.

We are very excited to be welcoming everyone back to the courts to start training. SDNA has provided a comprehensive return to training plan, which we encourage you all to read, but here is a snapshot reminder of the important messages. More detailed information is available to be downloaded below.

If a player or a coach is unwell then they must remain away from training sessions. In accordance with Vic Health Advice, any person showing signs of respiratory illness will need to leave or be asked to be collected immediately. If you are symptomatic and awaiting COVID-19 test results or if you have been in direct contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19 you are required to be tested and you must self isolate. SDNA or your club must be notified immediately.

Players must be dropped off at the start of their session at the drop off point (court entry), no sooner than 10 minutes prior to their start time and picked up promptly at the completion at the marked pick up point (side car park).

Both car parks need to be used as drive throughs… no parking allowed
