Cricket Victoria welcomes news on restrictions in regional Victoria

Cricket Victoria welcomes the news that regional Victoria will move to the third step of the Victorian Government’s coronavirus roadmap from midnight tonight.

Outdoor contact and non-contact sport will be permitted for regional Victorians aged 18 and under, as well as outdoor non-contact sport for adults. Cricket Victoria will continue to liaise with the Victorian Government, the DHHS and other agencies to finalise return to training and play protocols to support the move to the third step.

Cricket Victoria recommends clubs and associations in regional areas consider a start date of Saturday 17 October which will allow time for COVID-safe plans to be in place, grounds to be prepared and teams to complete a shortened program of pre-season training.

That four-week period will also allow clubs and associations to liaise with local councils, prepare their facilities and provide relevant education to players, coaches and volunteers.

Cricket Victoria’s Head of Member Services Paul Milo said cricket was in the process of finalising the plans to return with authorities.
