Training

Information about training sessions.

What happens if I can't come to training because I have a cold, the flu or COVID-19?

If you stay away from training because you are or might be sick, you are helping to keep your team mates healthy. We thank you for that and there won't be any problems if you can't be at training if you're sick.

Panthers look after themselves and their team.

What time is Turf training?

Turf teams will train on Monday afternoons. Times will rotate as we can have only two teams on the turf at any one time.

Your coaches will let you know your training time each week.

What time is training at Ferny Grove?

Under 7s and Under 9s will train from 4:45 to 5:45pm on Tuesdays.

Under 11s and U13s will train from 6 to 7pm on Tuesdays.

JGs will train from 5:30 to 7pm on Wednesdays.

Will these training times change?

The training times for Under 7s and Under 9s will remain the same for the season.

The later time slot for Under 11 training is because we can't fit seven teams on the fields at the same time and maintain the current social distancing requirements: Hockey Queensland guidelines state a field can be split into two zones, with a team in each. Teams must be separated and can not  share zones.

When Stage 3 starts, we expect to be able to move the Under 11 training to the same time as the Under 7s and 9s.

Can I stay and watch my daughters train?

We are keen to keep numbers down at training to minimise the possibility of exposure to COVID-19.

If you can drop your daughter off and pick her up after training, we encourage you to do so. We understand that parents would like to remain at training, especially for younger children, so if you do remain, you must stay within designated parent zones and maintain the usual 1.5m physical distancing. If you drop off your daughter, please ensure the team manager has your contact details should we need to get in touch with you urgently, for example if your daughter shows any signs or symptoms of COVID-19.

Hockey Queensland guidelines recommend non-playing siblings do not attend training, but we understand that you may need to bring non-playing children. If you do, they will need to be recorded as attending and will need to stay in the parent zone and maintain physical distancing.

If your daughter is training at Burringbar Park, a maximum of one parent is allowed into the facility and no non-playing siblings or spectators.

What do I need to do when I arrive at training?

When you arrive, everyone {players and parents) must report to the team manager and confirm they are ok to train. This means you:
  • are not feeling unwell (you don't have a runny nose or a cough or a temperature)
  • have not been unwell in the past 14 days
  • do not have a family member who is unwell
  • and no-one in your family are not COVID-19 positive
  • and no-one in your family are not waiting for the results of a COVID-19 test

If a parent/guardian must remain at training, they must also check in with the team manager.

Players must place their gear behind the team hand sanitisation point, maintaining 1.5m between bags etc.

Parents/guardians must remain in the Parent/guardian zone and maintain social distancing.

When should I sanitise my hands at training?

You should use hand sanitiser:

  • every time before you enter your training zone
  • every time you leave the training zone

That includes when you go to get a drink during a break in training.

Will the toilets be open?

Toilet facilities will be available at Ferny Grove and Burringbar, but change rooms will not.

We strongly encourage players to toilet before they come to training to minimise the need to use toilets at training venues.
