Welcome to Hatfield Netball Club
Have a look through our website and hopefully we can provide you with all your netball needs.
By now you would have seen the exciting news that the Government has given the green light to accelerate the return of netball through a modified version of the game according to the England Netball’s Roadmap for the return of community netball (Stage 4a). The recent approval also permits leagues and competitions to return using the modified rules from 26th September (Stage 4b). The committee has completed our own risk assessments so that we are ready to begin training week commencing 14th September as outlined in the member emails you should have received recently.
The health and safety of our club members, coaches and support volunteers is our number one priority. The Coronavirus (COVID 19) outbreak is a very fluid and rapidly changing situation. We will continue to follow advice from England Netball (EN), who themselves are responding to guidance from Public Health England, the World Health Organisation and both local and national government on this matter. In order to ensure we are following the advice and guidance from EN, we have created a designated role of COVID 19 officer – Lesley Chapman. This role will be responsible for communicating the guidance from EN to all of those involved in the club, in order that all netball activity undertaken by Hatfield Netball Club has the health and safety at the heart of any planning. Should you have any questions related to this subject please complete the enquiry form via the link below selecting COVID-19 as your enquiry:
As previously mentioned, this pandemic is a rapidly changing situation, and as such the advice and guidance is subject to frequent change. On 3rd August 2020 England Netball released the RiseAgain Campaign which includes the guidance towards a staged return to training and competition. We request all our members, parents/guardians of our junior members, coaches and our support volunteers read and follow the Club principals, pending any future developments or changes being communicated, please follow the link below for the COVID-19 Club Policy and Care Package:
England Netball Opt-in Confirmation: England Netball have devised an Opt-in Confirmation that MUST be signed by all members, players, coaches, officials and volunteers within the club, it is designed to ensure that the risks of netball and Covid-19 are fully understood by all individuals and ensures they have the choice with regards to netball activity.
