Victorian Community Sport and Recreation Organisations Guidance and Return to Play Plan
The Australian Camps Association and Outdoors Victoria submitted a Return to Play plan to the VicSport Expert Advisory Panel for review.
The Panel was established to provide a governance model and clear process for following the Chief Health Officer’s (CHO) advice for the development and consideration of Return to Play plans. This will support organisations in the resumption of sport and recreation in Victoria whilst maintaining a safe environment for participants, coaches, support staff, volunteers and the community.
The Plan was reviewed against the CHO Direction (Restricted Activity Direction No 9) that was announced as beginning on 1 June 2020.
We have now been advised that the Plan has been reviewed and will be posted on the VicSport website.
