October 2020 half-term training

Fitness, skills and modified match play, all taking place at the Team Bath Sports Training Village this October half-term.

The sessions will run from 9am-12pm Tuesday-Friday (October 27-30) and all will be delivered under current England Netball guidelines which can be found here by clicking here.

Please read the operating procedures below before booking (link at bottom of page).


Players must attend the time slot they have booked onto, with a specific day/time for the training session – this is not flexible due to our requirement to control numbers within our sessions.

The maximum number of people on one court is 24. This includes athletes, coaches and support staff. 

Spectators will not be permitted on the court or within the facility. 

Players SHOULD NOT attend sessions if they are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19 and / or have been in contact with someone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19, or have been asked to self-isolate.

The sessions will be fitness exercises and netball skill related. All players are asked to wash their hands before arriving at the session, and bring their own hand sanitiser to use before, during and after the session.

Each player will be allocated an area for their bottle / belongings (this will be socially distanced from others). Players should be ready to train upon arrival at the session and should bring limited belongings.

There should be no gathering on site after the session.


Equipment is kept in store 3, which is locked and accessible from the key at STV reception. Only one person is allowed in the store cupboard at any one time. Each ‘training’ group will have their own bag of netballs and training equipment to use and stored in store 3. They will wipe down the equipment at the beginning, end and every 15 minutes during the session. Hand sanitiser and required PPE will be made available. There will be very limited sharing of equipment. 

Drinks fountain

These are none available in the Sports Training Village. All players should bring sufficient fluids in preparation.

Changing rooms/ Toilets/ Lockers

There will be no changing rooms available so all players must come in training kit ready to train and depart accordingly. They must shower at home. Toilets are available at the STV, social distancing and hygiene must be followed. 


All personnel using the STV for netball must read and accept the Team Bath Netball code of conduct and waiver. This includes all of the internal University rules and those specifically related to netball as a sport. All personnel must complete a medical/health form before attending any form of activity. 

Access Control

All sessions are pre-booked to control numbers. 

Arrival and departure times will be staggered to allow for players to arrive and leave safely in a socially-distanced manner. 

The sessions will take place on the indoor Sports Training Village netball court. There will be clear markings for entrance and exit to the sessions. Sessions will be maximum 3 hours long. There will be a 30 minute buffer to allow for safe arrival and departure between each group. There will be no crossover between groups. 

Social distancing

All players and coaches are to maintain social distancing at all times and follow the rules of the STV. This includes wearing a face covering in all general areas of the building unless you are aged under-12 or have a medical exemption.

Track and trace

Players will complete a Google Form on arrival with their full details which will be kept by the Covid officer. There will also be a QR code available on the netball noticeboard outside the courts for players to scan and complete. 

Medical Guidance

Players SHOULD NOT attend sessions if they are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19 and / or have been in contact with someone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19. The main symptoms of coronavirus are:

  • A high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature).
  • A new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual).
  •  A loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you’ve noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal.

Most people with coronavirus have at least one of these symptoms.
