COVID Safety

COVID-19 Safety Plan

The COVID-19 Safety Plan provides an overarching plan for the implementation and management of procedures by Gymsports Management to support its members and participants in the continuation of community sport and club activities.

This Plan includes, but is not limited to, the conduct of staged training and activities and facility management and supporting operations. At all times, the Plan is subject to all regulations, guidelines and directions of government and public health authorities.

This Plan is based on, and accepts, the AIS Framework for Rebooting Sport in a COVID-19 Environment (AIS Framework) and the National Principles for the Resumption of Sport and Recreation Activities (National Principles).

The Plan also accepts as key principles that:

  • The health and safety of members, participants, coaches, officials, administrators/volunteers, visitors, families, and the broader community is the number one priority;
  • Members, participants, coaches, officials, administrators/volunteers, families and the broader community need to be engaged and briefed on Gymsports Management’s return to sport plans;
  • Facilities are assessed and appropriate plans are developed to accommodate upgraded hygiene protocols, physical distancing, and other measures to mitigate the risk of transmission of COVID-19;
  • At every stage of the return to sport process Gymsports Management must consider and apply all applicable State and local restrictions and regulations.

Our COVID safe procedures

The following currently applies to sport, exercise and recreation activities in Tasmania. Gathering limits are now determined by the density of the area. For sporting and recreation facilities with multiple indoor or outdoor spaces, the gathering cap applies separately to each single undivided space. For example, a multi-purpose sporting venue with multiple, separate, undivided indoor spaces, could have up to 250 people in each of these spaces (the density limit applies).

Sporting activities permitted based on Level C of the AIS Framework for Rebooting Sport, meaning the following are permitted:

  • full contact training;
  • full competition sport (contact and non-contact);
  • sharing of equipment where necessary
  • use of all equipment, including hand-held and foam pits
  • use of change rooms and other shared facilities.
