The purpose of this COVID-19 Safety Plan (Plan) is to provide an overarching plan for the implementation and management of procedures by NETFIT Netball (NETFIT) to support community Netball Clubs and Associations (Clubs & Associations), their members and participants in the staged resumption of community sport and club activities.
The arrangements set out in this Plan are intended to prevent the transmission of COVID-19 among NETFIT staff, and it’s members, participants, coaches, officials, administrators/volunteers, visitors, families and the broader community. The Plan provides the framework to govern the general operation of NETFIT’s School Classes, Club & Association Clinics and any facilities they attend, in partnership with the authorised body controlling that facility, the playing/training behaviour of all members and participants and the monitoring and reporting of the health of attendees at the facilities that they attend.
This Plan includes, but is not limited to, the conduct of:
a) staged training and fitness activities (sport operations); and
b) facility management and supporting operations (facility operations).
At all times the Plan is subject to all regulations, guidelines and directions of government and public health authorities.

4.1 AIS Framework Arrangements
The protocols for conducting sport operations and facility operations under Level B and Level C of the AIS Framework are set out in the Appendix.
4.2 Roadmap to COVIDSafe Australia
NETFIT will also comply with the Australian government’s Roadmap to a COVIDSafe Australia, which places limits on the type of activity that can be conducted and the number of people who can gather at facilities, notwithstanding the activities permitted by the AIS Framework (see below).
When public health officials determine that the outbreak has ended in the local community, NETFIT will consult with relevant authorities to identify criteria for scaling back its COVID-19 prevention actions. NETFIT will also consider which protocols can remain to optimise good public and participant health.
At this time the Executive of NETFIT will consult with key stakeholders to review the delivery of its return to sport arrangements and use feedback to improve organisational plans and systems.
