Northern sporting clubs can return to the paddock for training from next week


FOLLOWING updated advice from the NSW Government, Wollongong City Council will allow access to sporting clubs to return to training on fields from tomorrow (Monday, May 25) .

The Council has been working with a number of state and local sports associations to support their return to training on outdoor sportsfields.

The clubs will need to liaise with their local association to ensure they adhere to the individual sports return to training framework to address the NSW Public Health Orders, and meet physical distancing guidelines. The clubs will also need to comply with the strict record keeping health and hygiene practices that will be audited by the individual sports.

The Council is advising participants to contact their clubs and associations directly for updates managing their individual response to coronavirus.

On NSW State Government advice no timeframes have been determined on a return to any sporting competitions and Leisure Centres remain closed at this time.
