We have received approval for the Cintra – Level C Safety Plan from HNSW. There has been easing of some regulations, however with more of the clubhouse facilities now being open there has been an introduction of new safety measures.

PLEASE click the link below and READ the Cintra Safety Guidelines in preparation for attending training and competition matches. These regulations must be followed by all Briars members and visiting clubs.

The 3 key regulations to remember are:

  1. Every person entering the Cintra Hockey Complex MUST complete the digital attendance register on arrival and departure or have someone complete it for them.
  2. Maintaining 1.5m social distance is required in all areas of Cintra excluding the field.
  3. Hygiene – Everyone is encouraged to sanitise/wash their hands when they arrive at Cintra and frequently while onsite.
