The purpose of this COVID-19 Safety Plan (Plan) is to provide an overarching plan for the implementation and management of procedures by the ACT Broomball Association to support its members and participants in the staged resumption of community sport and club activities.
The arrangements set out in this Plan are intended to prevent the transmission of COVID-19 among members, participants, coaches, officials, administrators/volunteers, visitors, families and the broader community. The Plan provides the framework to govern the general operation of the ACT Broomball Association, any facilities it controls, the playing/training behaviour of all members and participants and the monitoring and reporting of the health of attendees at ACT Broomball Association events facilities.
This Plan includes, but is not limited to, the conduct of:
At all times the Plan is subject to all regulations, guidelines and directions of government and public health authorities.
This Plan is based on, and accepts, the AIS Framework for Rebooting Sport in a COVID-19 Environment (AIS Framework) and the National Principles for the Resumption of Sport and Recreation Activities (National Principles).
The Plan also accepts as key principles that:
The ACT Broomball Association retains the overall responsibility for the effective management and implementation of the return to sport activities and operations outlined in this Plan.

As at the date of this Plan, participants are training/competing at Level C of the AIS Framework. The Plan outlines specific sport requirements that ACT Broomball Association will implement for Level B and Level C of the AIS Framework.
The ACT Broomball Association will transition to the training activity and facility use as outlined in Level B of the AIS Framework and the training/competition activities and facility use outlined in Level C of the AIS Framework when permitted under local restrictions and regulations.
The protocols for conducting sport operations and facility operations under Level B and Level C of the AIS Framework are set out in the Appendix.
The ACT Broomball Association will also comply with the Australian government’s Roadmap to a COVID Safe Australia, which places limits on the type of activity that can be conducted and the number of people who can gather at facilities, notwithstanding the activities permitted by the AIS Framework (see below).
When public health officials determine that the outbreak has ended in the local community, the ACT Broomball Association will consult with relevant authorities to identify criteria for scaling back its COVID-19 prevention actions. The ACT Broomball Association will also consider which protocols can remain to optimise good public and participant health.
At this time the ACT Broomball Association will consult with key stakeholders to review the delivery of its return to sport arrangements and use feedback to improve organisational plans and systems.
