- Athletes and coaching staff are reminded of the current NSW PHO around the compulsory wearing of Masks until at least March 1, 2022. This includes all indoor events and recreation facilities, unless involved in exercise. (That is unless participating in drills or games on the court, all athletes and coaching staff should be wearing a mask)
- Any athlete who is unwell, has COVID related symptoms or is a close or casual contact should refrain from attending any Academy session and follow the relevant health advice. ie RAT / PCR testing and isolation requirements.

We are committed to implementing the appropriate responses to the COVID-19 pandemic, to ultimately protect the most vulnerable members of our community and to ensure the health, safety and well being of our staff, volunteers, stakeholders, service users and the broader community.
Our Administration service currently remains open, as we regularly re-assess our operations in line with these changing guidelines and circumstances.
Like many other like organisations, the Academy is continuing its Business Continuity Plan, alongside rigorous risk management processes, to implement a range of measures to keep our service, its people and the wider community safe, when sport does return to 'normal'.
The Academy, its Board and Staff, remain committed to following the NSW Government and its Office of Sport's advice and policies regarding return to play, vaccination requirements, and COVID safe plans.
Where possible, we encourage you to support the local businesses and organisations in our community, particularly those who support your local Academy.
