COVID-19 COMMUNITY ACTIVITIES OR EVENTS RULES
URBOND is running its community activities and events in line with guidance from UK Government, our third party venues and the sport specific action plan from sports governing bodies (such as Volleyball England).
At the heart of our plans is ensuring the safety and wellbeing of each of you attending these activities and events. Therefore, we’ve set out a few basic rules that everyone should follow when taking part so that we keep each other safe. By attending the activity or event, you agree to follow these rules. If people do not follow the rules and put other participants at risk then you may be asked not to attend the sessions.
We will continue to monitor the guidance and any local lockdown restrictions. Should we have to change or cancel an activity or event at short notice we will endeavour to inform everyone as soon as possible. Please do follow the website and social media channels for the latest updates.
You should follow best practice for travel including minimising use of public transport and limiting car sharing. Each of our venues has car parking – alternatively walk or cycle if you can. People from a household or support bubble can travel together in a vehicle. See the government’s safer travel guidance for passengers for further information.
Do not congregate at the venue before activity begins but aim to arrive at the start of the session. If you do arrive early wait in the car park until the start time. You should arrive changed and ready to begin the warm up rather than using the changing rooms at the venue (where applicable).
Ensure you put your belongings at least 2 metres apart from other people in ensure continued social distancing in any breaks and after the activity or event.
Sharing of equipment will be limited as much as possible. You should bring:
– A facemask which may be required to be worn in venue in order to get to your activity. Please follow venue guidelines and requirements for this;
– Your own hand sanitiser with a least 60% alcohol content and you should use this before and after each session and during each break;
– Your own full water bottle which should be labelled or highly distinguishable in order to avoid any confusion (for fitness and sporting actvities) ; and
– Your own sweat/fitness towel, foam roller, resistance band, joint supports or any other equipment you need for warm up/warm down or during activities (for fitness and sporting actvities).
Note some venues are not permitting access to water fountains at this stage so please ensure you bring sufficient water for the whole session.
Follow the instructions of the relevant organiser or coach and take care at all times to respect the other participants and any volunteers. If you have any concerns please speak to the activity or event coordinator or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Avoid all on court contact such as high-fives or handshaking. Maintain social distancing during all breaks. Do not share water bottles or food with other participants that you do not live with.
If you develop any Covid-19 symptoms whilst at the activity or event ensure that the organiser or coordinator present is informed and avoid touching anything. Cough or sneeze into a tissue and put it in a bin, or if a tissue is not available, cough and sneeze into the crook of your elbow. You should notify us on email@example.com and follow the guidance on self-isolation and not return to activity until your period of self-isolation has been completed in accordance with UK Government guidelines.
Please provide firstname.lastname@example.org address to Test and Trace if required so that we can liaise with them and protect all members accordingly.
At the end of the activity or event social distancing must be maintained. You should leave promptly at the end of the session and where possible change/shower at home rather than at the venue.
At the end of each activity or event we will be cleaning all the equipment. Please do play your part in helping with this on a rotation basis to help keep everyone safe.
By signing up to the activity or event you understand that you will provide your contact details to URBOND (via the booking system or otherwise) and you consent to them holding the details and, if required, passing these to the third party venue hosting the session, the NHS or any other Government body as part of the NHS test and trace programme relating to Covid-19. For the junior activities that are booked on a block you are consenting to your details being passed on for Test and Trace relating to any session whether or not that session is attended (if you are contacted you can inform them whether or not you attended the specific session).
Should you develop any symptoms following the session you should immediately notify the Covid-19 officers (Drame on email@example.com or Hans on firstname.lastname@example.org). If you need to provide contact details to NHS Test and Trace please provide this email address and the Covid-19 officer can ensure we comply with our test and trace requirements
In line with current Government guidance, spectators will not be permitted at any activity or event unless specifically agreed in advance with the organiser for outdoor activities or event.
For junior indoor sport sessions no spectators (including parents/carers) will be permitted in the hall. Parents/carers are welcome to remain on site and use the other facilities at the centre (to the extent these are open).
If you have any questions or concerns about attending an activity or event please do speak to any member of the committee or email email@example.com.
We want to keep everyone safe – please do look after each other.
