Sport NZ has released Alert Level 2 Sport and Recreation guidelines!
Great news… Following on from yesterdays announcement, from Thursday, a wide range of play, recreation and sport activities can resume within level 2. Playgrounds, gyms, pools and public courts can re-open. Water sports can restart.
For now, Government regulations mean only groups of 10 or less will be able to train or play together, however that restriction will be revisited on May 25. As we change seasons, the winter codes will be preparing to play by working through public hygiene, gathering, physical distancing and contact tracing requirements.
Make sure you stay in touch with your local club or organisation to understand how you can support them by playing it safe and following the rules.
Sport NZ Guidelines
Following yesterday’s announcement on the transition to Alert Level 2, Sport NZ can confirm that the 10 person gathering limit does apply to all community sport.
“We have worked closely with major winter codes around how and when they are best able to get their seasons underway, and what has come through clearly from those discussions is the importance of having an initial phase of preparation before play can commence,” says Sport NZ CEO Peter Miskimmin.
- Gatherings must be restricted to a maximum of 10 people initially (both indoor and outdoor facilities), this will be reviewed on 25 May. For sport and recreation,
a gathering includes spectators, players, officials and support staff. Gathering restrictions do not apply to professional sport players, officials or support staff.
- A system to record and retain the contact details of all people involved in, or attending your activity, must be in place ……
