Game Rule Changes

Training Times and Guidelines
The following is what we need Coaches and Trainers of our teams at De La are implementing as part of our Covid-19 safety plan to assist with the safety of our players for training –
- Training Schedule
- Training Zones
- NSWRL Training Session outline – designed to help maintain physical distancing as much as possible.
- Good Hygiene guidelines
All players that attend training will need to record their attendance by the WhatsApp group created by the Age Group Co-ordinator.
Key rules to be followed at this stage include:
- Groups of 20 only, with no cross over
- Each group must have their own balls
- No sharing of anything – equipment, clothing, towels or drink bottles
- All balls markers etc must be cleaned after each training session
- No use of tackle bags hit pads etc as they’re too hard to clean afterwards
- Only essential spectators. One parent/guardian per child
- No parents on the field
- Players and staff must observe hygiene requirements when training, including washing hands before and after any training
- ‘Get in, train, and get out’ – all participants should arrive dressed and ready to train and leave straight after
The NSWRL Return to Play Roadmap, gives an overview of the rules at each stage. More guidelines and information from the NSWRL as to what is being implemented can be found here.
