UPDATED: COVID-19 Health & Safety at Owairaka Athletics

The club is operating in a limited capacity under the Covid-19 Protection Framework (Red).


We have completed a risk assessment for club activities, and a Covid-19 Health and Safety Plan according to Athletics New Zealand guidelines, most recently updated on 16 Dec 2021.


This plan details measures taken so we can:

• Keep our volunteers healthy and safe

• Keep members and participants healthy and safe

• Reduce the chances of COVID-19 recurring in the community, and

• Minimise the possibility of further lockdown periods being required


We will review this plan in January 2022.


Current club activities

  • Senior distance running training (adults, health and safety measures in place as detailed in our health and safety plan).

  • Murray's comp squad (high school age athletes, health and safety measures in place as detailed in our health and safety plan).

  • Junior athletics for athletes 7+ (health and safety measures in place as detailed in our health and safety plan).

Key measures taken

  • Group sizes limited in accordance with current restrictions and managed by pre-registration

  • Activities outdoors only - clubrooms remain closed

  • Contact tracing in place via pre-registration and government COVID app

  • Regular communication to members, via email, website, social media and poster display onsite.

  • Valid Vaccine Passes required for all coaches, volunteers, parent helpers and athletes aged 12 yrs 3 months + involved in junior athletics.
