SUMMER NIGHT COMP INPORTANT INFO 16/10/20
SSNA TWILIGHT AND SUMMER SERIES
From a survey to members, the Twilight/Summer Competition Committee followed responses and Wednesday night was that requested by respondents. This year we have a large number of teams entered, which when taking into account the current PHO, keeps this competition operating in the two playing zones as per our Winter Competition.
The successful team registration numbers for 2020 Summer Competition has provided many challenges, not just for the Committee, SSNA Executive, but also for you, our member Club Executives. One challenge face by SSNA is with the number of senior registrations, moved from a two night to one night only competition, SSNA have hired additional lighting to cover more courts to allow play. The ongoing challenges face by Covid-19, we must continue to:
Follow all appropriate, current PHO’s;
Operate across two distinct play zones with a maximum of 500 persons each zone;
As above, 15 persons, per team, per court, including coach, manager, umpire;
Maintain social distancing, 1.5m apart etc;
Distinct and separate entrance/exit gates;
Arrive at the courts 10 minutes before and leave the courts 10 minutes after your game;
Warm up at home or on the adjacent oval of not being used by other sports.
On Wednesday night the SSNA Executive and Committee members on duty received a number of unnecessary and inappropriate comments, mainly from unhappy spectators, who did not feel they were required to follow the Public Health Orders.
These rules are not of our making. This is not what any of us want. This is all about Covid-19.
If we wish to continue playing, we MUST FOLLOW the Public Health Orders and the management plans provided to NSW Health, NNSW and Sutherland Shire Council.
We made it through the Winter Competition.
We all need to follow the current Covid-19 rules and successfully complete the Summer Competition.
