NSW Oztag Re-Introduce Covid-Safe Measures at Community Sport

Following the NSW Public Health announcement, new rules and restrictions have been enforced across Greater Sydney, affecting the sport and recreation sector.  

The NSW Government have ordered individuals whom reside in Woollahra, Waverley, Randwick and City of Sydney Councils to stay home for one week; from midnight tonight, until Friday 2 July.

As a result, all Oztag competitions in those areas will be shut down next week.

All other areas within the Greater Sydney Basin including Wollongong & Newcastle have been given the green light to go ahead, provided they adhere to their Covid Safety Plan and enforce ‘No Spectators’.

Any player residing or working in the lockdown areas must not attend competitions still running outside the lockdown areas.

The following will apply at all local Oztag competitions across Greater Sydney:

  • No Spectators
    • Parents who need to be there for minors must stand away from the field with a mask on or preferably remain in their car.
  • Players are requested to arrive no more than 15 minutes before their game and leave immediately on completion. 
    • If they have multiple games they should return to their car or wait in an area away from the field within the venue but wearing a mask.
  • Hand sanitizing before and after games will be compulsory
  • Associations will wash tags and balls at the end of every competition night

Associations across the Greater Sydney Basin have been advised to return to their Covid Safety Plans and ensure they are up to date for immediate use.

If you have any further questions or concerns, please contact your association directly.

NSW Oztag will continue to monitor the NSW Health regulations and will keep the public updated as deemed necessary.
