COVID-19 Return to Play

Cricket Tasmania in line with State Government advice provides COVID-19 Return to Play Guidelines and Resources, including a Return to Play Process Plan for clubs and Associations.

Included in the resources are protocols to support cricket training and games, supported by relevant checklists to ensure clubs and associations can implement effective COVID-19 safety practices.

Our advice regarding COVID-19 safety:

  1. When preparing for a new season or competition, it is strongly recommended that Clubs and Associations liaise with local council before completing a COVID-19 Safety plan using the Cricket Tasmania template provided.
  2. It is also strongly recommended that Clubs and Associations elect a COVID-19 Safety Officer to be responsible for the implementation of safety practices at training and games during the season. Cricket Tasmania have formed a position description for this role.
  3. The COVID-19 Safety Officer as well as volunteers and coaches are also encouraged to complete training on this subject, available here.

Please note that all information in this webpage and documents provided is subject to Tasmanian State Government advice. Please ensure you visit https://coronavirus.tas.gov.au/families-community/sport-and-recreation for up to date, general information.
