Minimum standards of behaviour and conduct:

  • All participants must maintain social distancing while entering the venue, preparing their own equipment and leaving the venue.

  • All participants should sanitise their hands prior to the start of activity.

  • Volleyballs can be shared but the sharing of other equipment should be limited where possible.

  • Where equipment such as volleyballs are shared, participants must practice strict hand hygiene before and after use and the equipment must be cleared before use by another person.

  • Players should refrain from spitting or rinsing out their mouths and should maintain respiratory etiquette if they cough or sneeze.

  • Players, coaches, officials and spectators should refrain from shouting.
