Caulfield & District Netball Association have the health and wellbeing of our community at the forefront of our minds and are diligently staying up to date with the continual developments as they arise.
The directive from the government is that from today, all non-essential, organised mass gatherings of 500 people or more must be cancelled. Due to the State of Emergency being declared in Victoria this morning, this is now a compulsory and sanctionable ruling. Whilst our competitions don’t always reach this figure, our community as a whole must be taken into consideration. Our great netball community is not only our players and coaches but is also our parents, supporters, managers, umpires, volunteer committee members and our valued staff members too.
We, alongside many of our other netball association colleagues, would like to support Australia’s efforts to slow the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19).
We have therefore made the decision to cancel matches for this weekend (20th / 21st March) and until further notice.
We would like to thank all of you for your understanding and patience during this unprecedented and constantly evolving time. We can assure you all that we all look forward to returning to our great game of netball as soon as possible and will continue to keep you updated with any further developments as they come to hand.
*** A full statement has been emailed to all club / team delegates ***
In the meantime, take care, look after yourselves and each other. ... See MoreSee Less
Caulfield & District Netball Association would like to ensure our members that we are staying up to date with all of the information and recommendations provided about Coronavirus, as per the Victorian Government Department of Health and Human Services, the and the Australian Government too.
You will appreciate that in the current health climate, we are all wanting to support and protect our great netball community.
Following the recent government announcement this afternoon, we can confirm that we are an entity conducting a "non-essential gathering" such as our weekend sport competition. Therefore, after much deliberation and as a proactive precautionary measure, CDNA has made the decision to cancel our all of our competition matches for this weekend, which includes tonight (Friday) and tomorrow (Saturday).
This will enable us to work through with the Committee and then with our clubs what our plan will be moving forward.
We will be in touch with all clubs and team delegates as soon as possible via email.
