Volunteers - We Want you!!!!

We need volunteers to assist with running the QWA State U15 & Youth Championships in Toowoomba 15-16 August. All competitors are expected to volunteer for at least one session, or organise to have someone else volunteer for them.

All levels of referees can officiate at this event, and we will make sure that you have a mentor to guide you if this is your first time. Where gaps have been filled by Senior referees you can email the QWA at qwa@qwa.org to ask to be added to the slot with them. Make sure that you gain experience in all of the roles, and not just select refereeing.

Uniform for Technical officials – white shirt, navy pants/skirt, and a navy jacket – additional layers of clothing to suit the weather can be any colour – we don’t want you freezing to death.

Of course, this time round we also have the additional burden of ensuring COVID Safe compliance. You will see where this role has also been added to the sign-up schedule. If the time-slot is too long for you, you can organise to have someone share the timeslot with you. You will be given on the job training to fill this role.

Remember to bring your Blue Cards. You will receive a free QWA lanyard when you show your Blue card to the Operations Manager Deb Keelan at the event.

Spectator numbers will be limited at the event. The best way to ensure that you can attend a specific session is to sign up to volunteer.

To our sport and recreation community,

Under Stage 3 of the easing of restrictions, it is important to remember that all sport, active recreation and fitness organisations must comply with an approved Industry Covid-safe plan.

Approved Industry Plans restrict access to anyone who has:

  • COVID-19 or has been in direct contact with a known case of Covid-19 within the last 14 days
  • Flu-like symptoms or who is a high health risk (e.g. due to age or pre-existing conditions)
  • Travelled internationally
  • Travelled to a Covid declared hotspot.

With recently reported positive COVID-19 cases confirmed in Queensland, please note the advice below and ensure your organisation and members are aware of these developments.

  1. Individuals who have been in close contact with a confirmed positive COVID case will be issued with quarantine directions by the Public Health Unit which will require them to isolate for 14 days.
  2. The Public Health Unit may be requesting contact tracing information from organisations today which must be provided within 1 hour of the request.
  3. If you or a family member are exhibiting any signs or symptoms of being unwell, please contact your GP or your local Queensland Health Fever and Respiratory Clinic.

In line with the above, any person who has visited affected locations identified by Queensland Health should not attend organised sport, active recreation or fitness activities until further information on the situation comes to hand. These locations can be found here via the contact tracing alerts page. You can also stay up to date with all COVID-19 Queensland Health alerts here.

Clubs are strongly advised to keep monitoring the situation in the implementation of its Industry Plan and ensure that contact tracing is in place in the event of a positive test.
