Procedures for training & games

  1. The Club will ensure all relevant COVID posters provided by BaseballNSW are on display at Murray Farm Reserve.  Muirfield is a rented field, so managers of senior teams are responsible for ensuring all team members and spectators are aware of COVID safe rules
  2. The Club will appoint a COVID Marshall to enforce these rules.  Each team will appoint a COVID officer for that team.
  3. All volunteers and club officials must acknowledge and follow these procedures.  If you have not spoken to the COVID Marshall (Mark Highfield or delegate) to be inducted in these procedures, then you cannot participate as a club official.
  4. Each player and 1 parent/carer will be treated as having checked-in for COVID attendance purposes by the recording of the child’s name on the team line-up pad and results sheet.  The club’s database has contact details for each registered player so families can be contacted if required.  Spectators are now permitted (from 26 September), however any spectators outside of the family group of each player must be recorded on the reverse of the results sheet with name & phone number, or encouraged to check-in using the QR code at the canteen.  All spectators must exercise appropriate physical distancing.  By attending parents make an ongoing declaration that all attendees with them are well.
  5. Each team will have a COVID Officer (the team manager or delegate) who is responsible for ensuring the reverse of the results sheet is complete, as well as ensuring all team officials including manager and home umpire’s name are recorded on the front of the results sheet.  Both sides of the results sheet must be photographed and emailed to the Club’s Recorder for Juniors (and to Peter Handel for Seniors).
  6. All players, team officials and helpers must use hand sanitiser on arrival.  Players must not share personal bats or helmets.  Each team’s COVID officer will sanitise helmets and bats for any players that don't have their own.  Fielding teams must supply their own balls.  Catcher’s masks will be issued to each catcher and must not be shared.
  7. All team officials and parents must observe social distancing as much as possible.  All players must avoid unnecessary physical interaction with other players and coaches.  No handshakes, high-fives or other interaction.  Elbow bumps are acceptable.
  8. The COVID Marshall or delegate will sanitise toilet door handles, taps etc before and during the morning. 
  9. All players, team officials and helpers must use hand sanitiser on departure.

FAQs

  1. Social distancing is not required for kids in junior sport (same as at school).
  2. Spectators are no longer limited to one parent per child.
  3. By sanitising all hands upon arrival, we intend to create a “mini-bubble”.  This reduces the need to sanitise balls, bats and helmets.
