COVID-19 Resources for Safety

We’ve collated COVID-19 resources to help protect you and the community around you in this challenging time. Sport is a fabric of society, it brings people together to foster community, belongingness, connection and health. We’re here to support the return of sport, when the time is right and the conditions are safe.

The COVID-19 situation changes daily and it is your responsibility to stay up to date with the latest advice, recommendations and restrictions specific to your area. We want your PlayBook experience to be safe and engaging so if you don’t feel comfortable coaching/training at any time we are happy for you to cancel, decline, or postpone (reschedule) sessions, we ask that you keep us informed so we can support you accordingly.

Don’t attend a coaching session if you’ve recently been exposed to or have symptoms of COVID-19.

If you have recently tested positive for COVID-19 and recently has a PlayBook session please contact us.

Please follow all advice from your State Government, local Police and the World Health Organisation (WHO).
