Covid Safe Footy


It is great news that the 2020 season has been given the green light and we are pleased to be playing footy again this year. It has taken quite a bit of effort to get to this point, and we need to make sure that as a club, we take every precaution to keep players, officials and parents safe for the remainder of the season.


The NSWRL has put together a Resource Hub which is filled with information and resources to help players, parent and clubs better understand the new requirements post Covid-19. You can view these resources by clicking this link.


Overview

There has been a great deal of effort behind the scenes to get the 2020 season restarted and all clubs have to do their bit to ensure that players, officials and the general community remains safe during the season. The NSWRL has put together an education slide show to help all clubs players and parents get a full understanding of the steps we have to take to make our return to footy, Covid safe. You can view this slideshow here and we would encourage all Tigers members, players and parents to view the presentation.


We ask all Tigers players, officials and parents to comply with the following practice:


Good Hygiene

  • Practice good hygiene by washing your hands often with soap and water

  • Use alcohol-based hand sanitisers when you can’t use soap and water

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth

  • Cover your nose and mouth when coughing and sneezing with a tissue or a flexed elbow

Stay Safe-Stay Away

  • If you feel unwell don't come to training, stay home until you feel better

  • If you have been in contact with someone confirmed to have COVID-19 please stay home, get tested and contact us with your test results

There is a two stage plan for all clubs to recommence training, Stage 1 runs from 15 June to 1 July and involves no contact training. Stage 2 runs from 1 July to 12 October and covers full contact training. The NSWRL Hub has more detailed information on this, which you can view by clicking this link.


Based on the feedback we received from Tigers Coaches and Managers the following teams have allocated their training days as below. The JRL has approved this schedule and please let me know if there are any changes to days and/or times so I can update the JRL:

We ask all players and parents to assist us to comply with these regulations by observing the following:
