Our panel members lived and breathed Netball Queensland's COVID-19 response. It was only appropriate that we kicked off LC2020 with our insights and learnings from delivering community netball and the 2020 SSN season during the pandemic.
Ben Mannion - General Manager, Nissan Arena
"Whilst a number of sports decided not to run elite or community sport, netball thrived in Queensland. We showed the country what we can do if we unite and work together. Contract Tracing is without doubt the most import step in recovering from an outbreak and we encourage everyone to implement the EVA Check-in system if they haven't already done so. Finally, Nissan Arena is an indoor venue, which falls under a different set of protocols. The easing of restrictions has, at this point, not been eased and social distancing and the 4m2 ruling must be adhered to whilst at the venue."
Paula Sale - Western Districts Netball Association
"Let the Public Health Unit lead the communitications to the community and be a single source of truth. We encourage every club and association to keep their records electronically, which means they are easily accessible from anywhere. Don't be afraid to over communicate with your members, even if there is no new information to give, keep them informed."
Laura Rathgeber - Chief COVID Safety Coordinator, Netball Queensland
"I hope people walk away with a "forward thinking" attitude and understand how Netball Queensland has already started the transformation process by creating eco-systems where we can work together to achieve greater outcomes."
