Happy New Year Sharks - Juniors, Womens and 5ths are back in action this week
The Washington Park Cricket Club is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for all of its members, supporters, families and stakeholders. Our SHARKS Values has a focus on Health and Wellbeing and in response the current COVID-19 pandemic and restrictions we are fully committed to providing clear and current information to our members.
This will be continually updated with all the relevant information to manage our safe return to playing cricket so please keep visiting here for the most current information. This webpage has been established to provide a one-stop shop for all the information you need for the return of cricket and all of the safeguards that we have implemented for the safety of all.
The dates for our return to training and playing are defined by the Cricket Victoria Roadmap for the Return of Community Cricket.
As you will appreciate, there are many changes to how cricket will operate in season 2020/21. One of the most critical aspects is that all Senior Players, Parents and Club Officials are required to sign a Player Commitment Statement prior to taking part in any club activities. These statements will be held by the club and must be made available for view by SECA, Cricket Victoria or DHHS if required. We will provide further details on the process for submitting your form in the next few weeks, however all club members are asked to be aware of this requirement for the coming season.
All players, parents, officials and members should also take the time to read the following three documents:
These documents are a comprehensive guide to all of the protocols, controls and information to guide the safe return of cricket. Please take some time to familiarise yourself with these details.
In accordance with the WPCC Return to Train and Play document we have prepared a WPCC Return to Training Guide for Packer Park. This document describes the specific steps to be taken by players, coaches and officials participating in training sessions at Packer Park.
Please note that the presentation from our online Zoom meeting on October 28 is available at this link.
Now that the season has started and, as per state government requirements we can train in groups of up to 50, we have moved to the “normal” club training program. If you are unclear as to training times for yourself or your team please contact your coach, team manager or captain.
The Sharks have established a Covid Sub Committee to manage our response to cricket in season 2020/21. As part of our governance of the season we have established a Register of COVID Officers. These people have completed the free on-line COVID-19 course and are the key representatives of our
organisation to help ensure that cricket activities (on-field and off-field) are being conducted in a COVID-19 safe manner.
The following document defines the duties and responsibilities of the COVID Officers at training - WPCC COVID Officers' Duites at Training.
