Risk Management Plan and Emergency Action Plan
Please download and read our Risk Management Plan and Emergency Action Plan in advance of our event. If you have any questions or would like to know any further information regarding the risks associated with the event that you are involved with please contact James Docking as early as possible so we can discuss your questions or concerns. 
Safety Around Water
There is nothing better than cooling off after a spike but we also know that Australian beaches, rivers and lakes can also be dangerous and unfortunately tragic events are too common. Some of our events are hosted near bodies of water. We want to make sure that participants at all our events understand that we are not planning, organising or supervising water-based activities. If people choose to swim they will need to take appropriate precautions and consider the conditions as well as their abilities and experience in the water and surf. Where beaches are patrolled and participants decide to swim, we strongly encourage them to swim between the flags even if that isn't near our setup. We set up based on council approval and our playing requirements which is no indication of the risks in the water nearby. If a Tournament Director, staff member or leader in the roundnet community decides to swim they do so at their own risk. In these situations there is no implied meaning that this is organised, planned or supervised activity as part of a roundnet tournament/event.
