The Yarrabilba Cricket Association are looking forward to returning to work on bringing Australia’s favorite sport to Queensland’s fastest growing area – Yarrabilba. Everyone involved in our club can not wait to offer our services, and programs to the men, women and children who help make up the Yarrabilba community.
While we are aware that other sports in and around our region are pushing ahead with their seasons, the Yarrabilba Cricket Association has and will always put the interest of public health and safety first. As such we continue to adhere to the medical advice provided to us from the Queensland Government, the Chief Medical Officer in the state of Queensland and advice from Queensland Cricket.
This means that will only resume planning of our programs once we have been provided the all-clear to do so from the relevant bodies. The latest update we have received from Queensland Cricket is:
The staged approach of cricket returning to the field is in line with direction from National Cabinet and Queensland’s Roadmap to easing restrictions. As the end of each stage approaches, the Sport & Recreation Department will review the situation and health advice and directives to make sure it’s safe to move on to the next stage.
Note that Stage 1 restrictions in Queensland now specify “no formal organised individual or team community sport or training (unless an exemption is approved)”. At this stage it is also not guaranteed that all parts of Stages 2 and 3 will be able to be implemented.
It is important to note that at all stages the maximum number of people includes players, coaches, officials, spectators and any other person around the gathering in addition to staff, trainers and instructors.
Due to the current restrictions the Yarrabilba Cricket Association, despite other sporting codes around the area, will not proceed with planning for our upcoming season and programs until it is deemed, at the very least, safe to do so for the health and well being of our players, officials, community members and their families.
