The following comments are attributed to Greater
Geelong Mayor Stephanie Asher:
What obligations do clubs need to meet
before training can start?
We are helping
clubs to resume outdoor training through a Return to Play process, which is in
line with guidelines issued by their relevant state sporting associations. As a landowner,
the Council has a responsibility to ensure that public facilities are used
safely and that all members and visitors adhere to current guidelines. Safety
is always our priority. The process
will address how they can most effectively resume training, modified where
necessary, to meet the Victorian Government’s restrictions.
When is Council hoping to give approval
for clubs to start training?
that clubs are keen to resume training and we are assisting them to do so
safely and as quickly as possible. It will ultimately depend on the individual
clubs as to how long this takes, given there are differing considerations
across sports in terms of social distancing and physical contact with
What documentation/communication has
been issued to clubs about a restart?
Clubs have been
contacted this week about the Return to Play process.
