SNV Covid-19 Guidelines (updated January 13th, 2022)

Volleyball is on! However, it is essential players follow the guidelines in order for community sport to continue.

As always, please follow the current guidelines from NSW Health regarding contact status and isolation requirements and all aspects of the Public Health Order. Please also read the SNV Covid Safety Plan before attending.

Masks are required on entry to any SNV venue and must be worn at all times unless you are on court actively participating. This includes wearing a mask if you are on the bench or doing duty.

ALL venues used by SNV require everyone to check in via the Service NSW Covid Safe Check-in QR Code. For more information please see the Service NSW website.


Whilst we are very enthusiastic about again being able to provide playing opportunities we do acknowledge things are not quite as they were, with additional rules and safety regulations in place. We need everyone to play their part in keeping our community safe and able to continue the resumption of activities. Below are the expectations of anyone attending SNV activities, although they may become more or less restrictive as government and venue guidelines change and may vary somewhat from venue to venue.
