Next Monday August 24th we will start our new season again. A strange start for everyone:
– De laatste keer dat we trainde in de zaal was in maart van dit jaar, door Corona heeft daarna heel veel stil gelegen.
- We are playing in a (for us) new hall, the Achtse Barrier. The transition to this hall has been silent, apart from a number of announcements in the newsletter and VLOG off the chairman.
- That hall is new for everyone, including the board.
- Also the storage of materials is very different from what we were used to, no own canteen, no own management etc.
From now on, the balls are in a cabinet in the hall. That cabinet is closed with a lock of which the coach gets the code. After collecting the balls, please lock the cabinet again! After the training or match, you must collect all the balls and immediately put them back in the right place in the cabinet. All teams have their own ball bag, so you don't have to leave them for others!
The board will, as in all previous years, be present in the first two weeks to guide you and the players and parents.
There are, because of Corona, a number of measures that we will have to take prior to ALL training and competitions.
The protocol of the NOC/NSF must be followed, as well as the regulations of the municipality.
As a tenant, we are responsible to comply with all measures!
A corona responsible person (from Almonte) will stand at the entrance of the hall:
- At the entrance there will be a check-up where athletes will be asked about possible fever / cold problems. If there are any complaints, admission will be refused.
- He asks athletes to disinfect their hands on entry and shows them where to do so.
The municipality provides disinfectants in the central hall after entry'.
- He draws the attention of sports hall users to the municipal coronavirus precautions .
- Spectators may be present at matches. They must keep a distance of 1.5 metres from each other in the stands. There may be a maximum of 100 people in total. We also count the players who have finished their match. If we exceed 100 people, we must therefore remove people from the hall. That is why we would like to leave the room via the changing rooms immediately after the match.
- After the rented time (in this case training time) the players must leave the room. They are therefore not allowed to continue shooting, as was often the case at The Eckart.
- Changing rooms and associated shower rooms are open for use. PLEASE NOTE: In these rooms the 1.5m rule also applies (from 12 years of age!).
Loops have been explained in de Achtse Barrier and de Mortel, which must of course be followed.
This means that we are all entering at the entrance to de Mortel. In front of the entrance we are separated: sportsmen and coaches to the left into the corridor, spectators straight on in.
After sports, athletes must leave the room (changing rooms) via the same corridor as they enter. The exit is then the emergency exit off the sportshall
As the corona-responsible has to keep an eye on the entry, the trainer/coach is responsible for the behaviour of the players and their parents!
So don't leave immediately after the training, but keep an eye on the rules together, then we all will stay on the right track.
Next Monday (correction: August 28 th) the matches will be consolidated by the NBB. Possibly the same day, otherwise the matches will appear in the app on Tuesday at the latest!
The first WAP with tasks by name (!) will appear on Monday.
Players from U16 and parents up to U18 will be used for jury tasks.
We have new equipment (wireless) and also the tablet is controlled differently.
Please let us know in the first week who is eligible for a (repeat) course.
We need to rent space separately for these moments, or give instructions directly in the hall. Planning is therefore crucial.
