Today the WA Government released information around the implementation and easing of Phase 3 safety guidelines.
Volleyball WA is working to clarify and update the sport’s road map and will provide further information next week.
It is important to note that while some measures are being eased, other requirements will remain in place, such as each venue having a COVID Safety Plan.
Volleyball WA would like to repeat the WA Minister for Sport and Recreation Mick Murray’s words around the critical work being down by our sports volunteers as we move into Phase 3.
“Volunteers have long been essential to the operation of our industry across the state, however as we begin to return to normal after this unprecedented disruption of activity, their efforts in enabling clubs to function will be more important than ever.”
On behalf of the Volleyball WA Board and Staff group, we would like to acknowledge the work being done in the community by our volunteers. Volunteers are undoubtedly a crucial part of rebuilding the sport and delivering the 2020 season, as Minister Murray’s said without you “a return to play simply won’t be possible”.
The sport is in contact with the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries, as well as the Minister’s Office to establish clearer definitions and will provide these to the community once confirmed.
We appreciate the community’s eagerness to get back out playing volleyball and ask for your patience as we work through the health requirements to do so. Please ensure that you do not initiate any activities that would be in breach of the latest information published by the WA Government.
Based on the information released so far, we would recommend all stakeholders review the WA Government’s COVID-19 information page to help prepare for the relaunch of the sport. CLICK HERE.
It’s also important to note the upcoming changes to sport and recreation, will not come into effect until Saturday the 6th of June.
Volleyball WA would also encourage downloading the COVIDSafe app as a further precaution before playing volleyball.
