Hamersley's Plan
Hamersley is suspending all netball activities including training, matches and meetings until 26 May 2020. Currently Netball WA have recommended that the Winter Competition be delayed to 30 May with club training to be postponed until the week immediately prior to the commencement of the season.
On or before 18 May, we will let our members know whether club training will recommence on 26 May. We will continue to monitor advice from the Federal and State Governments, and Netball WA and if the club needs to, we can amend our position at that time.
This decision has been made on the basis that it conforms with the Federal Government's advice to implement social distancing (maintaining 1.5m between each other whenever possible). We believe it is not possible to implement social distancing whilst playing netball in a team environment (including training, scratch matches, gym sessions and meetings). In addition, Hamersley is concerned for the well being of our members, in particular those who are more susceptible to COVID-19, such as those over 60 years old or those with underlying health conditions.
In order to support members during this time, the club will be launching an on-line home program (shooting, footwork, balls skills, strength and conditioning) so that players can take the opportunity to build on their physical competencies and individual skills.
We encourage you to keep checking the Hamersley website and social media platforms for ongoing updates. Thanks for your understanding and continued support. We would appreciate you giving the club time to work through the issues as this situation evolves.
The club is aware that some members will have concerns regarding membership fees. We will be able to advise on this matter once additional information is received from WDNA and Netball WA.
We would like to remind Hamersley members not to contact WDNA or Netball WA directly regarding this situation.
Posted: 18 March 2020
WDNA COVID-19 Information
For the latest news from WDNA regarding COVID-19 go to their website or check their Facebook page.
Please do not contact WDNA or Netball WA regarding this situation, but please be patient and await further news.
Posted: 16 March 2020
Training Cancelled
Hamersley has made the decision to cancel netball training and all other events on Tuesday 17 March including No Limits Session 1 and Compulsory New Parents Meetings. This gives the club the opportunity to gather more information on the situation. We will provide an update next week via email, as to whether training will commence on Tuesday 24 March or not.
We are taking advice on the COVID-19 situation from the Commonwealth and State Governments as well as Netball Australia and Netball WA.
Information on COVID-19 is available from a large number of sources, however we recommend that all members refer to advice on the Netball WA website as it contains useful links, as well as netball specific information.
If you fulfil any of the criteria that requires you to self-isolate or obtain medical attention due to suspected/confirmed COVID-19, it is imperative that do not attend any netball commitments until it is safe to do so, as per the advice on the Netball WA website.
