The Victorian State Government changes to restrictions from 11:59pm on Thursday 10th June will allow more physical recreation and community in both metro and regional areas.
The Restricted Activity Directions (Metropolitan – Regional) released overnight to provide specific directions on activities and requirements for community sport.
Some key points include:
QR Code check-ins are required for all facilities. This may be setup by your venue owner alternatively if you require further information on how to setup a QR Code see https://www.coronavirus.vic.gov.au/register-to-use-vic-gov-qr-code-service
Metropolitan Melbourne Area
Outdoor training can take place at facilities for all juniors and seniors (still no competitions)
Density quotas are still in place for participants:
1 person per 4sq meters, with no more than 100 at a facility in groups of 10 or less (i.e. a ‘gate’ at a BMX track or motorpace training at a velodrome would be consider a group)
Spectators are only permitted for the purpose of supervising children or dependents
No more than the minimum number of people required to run the training are allowed in the venue
You can only travel up to 25km from your home for community sport
All members of the public participating in the training are from a single sports team
For cycling this means all members must be a member of the club conducting the training
Club rooms remain closed (unless they meet the criteria to operate under hospitality guidelines)
Masks are required to be worn
Participants training are not required to wear masks while riding, but are required to wear a mask at all other times
The Regional Activity Directive (Regional Victoria) advises that outdoor community sport for all ages, including training and competition, can resume with the following considerations:
The activity does not involve a participant who ordinarily resides in Metropolitan Melbourne
No more than the minimum number of members of the public required to conduct the sport attend
The total number of members present at an outdoor facility is limited to the density quotient and must not exceed 150 (volunteers required to run activities and infants (under one year) of age are not counted towards this limit)
No more than twenty (20) members of the public participate for individual events
Please note that DISC Velodrome will remain closed as indoor facilities are still unable to operate in metro areas.
We also encourage all clubs to ensure they are aware of any requirements from local councils in relation to the returning to activities.
We appreciate this is a tough time for many and we will provide any additional information as it becomes available.
