Cricket South Africa (CSA) has announced that training for all forms of amateur cricket can now resume under the adjusted level-four lockdown.
CSA is working closing with members to provide safety guidelines to all participants and venues across the country. All players, coaches and officials wishing to return to small-group or one-on-one training must comply with the health protocols outlined in the safety guide and will be required to:
- provide a supporting letter from the venue owners permitting resumption of one-on-one training
- where schools’ facilities are involved, proof that a formal notification of return-to-train plans have been sent and endorsed by the district office or school governing body
- undergo screening before being allowed entry into the facility.
CSA members will appoint a Covid-19 compliance officer prior to the resumption of the cricket activities as well as a designated venue Covid-19 compliance officer to monitor the day-to-day activities and ensure that the standard of hygiene and health protocols are adhered to.
No spectators are allowed at training under level-four restrictions.
