Key Points to Remember
  1. Everyone who trains MUST be registered with Hockey Victoria. There is now a discounted rate, and this also covers players for the rest of the calendar year. Once registered, EGC is informed and that helps us control and organise valuable training sessions.

  2. Please ensure social distancing measures are maintained.

  3. If you have or have been in contact with someone who has  symptoms or have any symptoms within the last 14 days, you are asked not to attend the club for your training session.

  4. Members who have tested positive for COVID-19 will be asked not to attend the Club until such time as a medical certificate provides confirmation the member has satisfactorily recovered.

  5. There is no access to venue at any time unless attending a sanctioned training or involved in sanctioned work. This means no casual use of ground, no jumping fence or using a known key for unofficial trainings.

  6. Access to POW facility will be via one point only. Entry will be via the alleyway between clubrooms and changeroom buildings. The only exit will be via pedestrian gate located on Aquatic Centre side of club rooms.
