Camperdown Little Athletics Centre COVID-19 Protocols
Last updated 5/04/2021.
There are many changes to the way we will have to run Camperdown LAC activities this year. Please be familiar with these protocols and abide by them. This is the only way we are able to run our season and have our children participating in athletics this year.
Our clubrooms will be restricted access, committee and first aid will be exempted. Toilets will be open and cleaned prior to competition times. Athletes should be changed prior to arriving where possible.
All family members are required to sign in on arrival, including children accompanying parents but not participating in Little Athletics. We must keep these records for 28 days. Please arrive early.
All adults must socially distance from other adults and children that are not part of their household by at least 1.5m at all times.
Athletes must socially distance from each other between events and whilst waiting for their turn in an event. This does not apply when participating in an event. In running events all lanes may be used.
All athletes must be registered with LAVic at least 24 hours prior to competition days to allow the committee to work out group sizes and events. No walk-ins on the night will be allowed this year.
New members can register without paying for 2 weeks.
All event sites will have sanitizer and wipes available, these will be provided by the club.
After long or triple jump, athletes must clean their sand from their hands and then hand sanitize after each jump.
Following each high jump attempt, athletes need to sanitize their hands. We will clean the bar when it has been touched. Mats will be wiped down between groups.
Hurdles must be wiped after each change in height, and after an athlete knocks a hurdle down.
Parents directly supervising children or completing a duty are allowed to stay with groups (whilst socially distancing), we encourage this with the younger age groups. Spectator Limits may apply.
Athlete must bring their own water bottles and other personal equipment. Sharing of food or drinks between athletes is prohibited.
We can no longer have age group bags to carry hats or drink bottles. Athletes will need to keep bottles with them for field events, or have a parent carry the drink bottle. We will have a designated area for each age group to keep their drink bottles and other personal belongings if a parent is not able to do this.
Age group managers cannot carry athlete’s drink bottles/jumpers/hats.
The protocols will make this season look a little different to previous years, however these are the conditions that we must abide by if we are to be able to run our program.
We thank everyone in advance for abiding by these protocols.
