Additional Safety and Hygiene
As part of our commitment to keeping your child safe, we have put in place additional safety and hygiene practices for all program participants. The following have been added to our already comprehensive practices:
- Participant numbers per day will be limited to ensure adequate social distancing.
- Hand sanitisers will be available in prominent places throughout our venues and all participants in the program will be encouraged to use it before and after each sport activity throughout the day.
- The sharing of sporting equipment will be limited, and all equipment used in activities will be cleaned and disinfected before and after each session throughout the day.
- There will be no physical contact permitted by participants. This includes no high fives or handshakes.
- We will not be providing a water container for use in our Carnaby Kids program. Children will be permitted to fill up their own bottles in designated locations. Alternatively, they are able to bring another bottle for the day.
- All children, parents/guardians and staff attending the program MUST NOT ATTEND if they: have any flu-like symptoms; have been in direct contact with a known case of COVID-19 in the past 14 days; have travelled internationally or have been in direct contact with a known case of COVID-19 in the past 14 days, and/or are at high risk from a health perspective, including the elderly and those with pre-existing medical health conditions.
We look forward to seeing you soon.

Leadership – To always demonstrate positive behaviours for others to follow.
Respect – To always treat others the way you would like to be treated and to think of how your actions or words may make others feel.
Courage – Have the courage to try new things and give everything a go.
Teamwork – To work together as a team to achieve more; no one individual is bigger than the team.

When picking up and dropping off your children each day for the Carnaby Kids Sports Program you can use the Pickup/Drop off bay at the end of Curtin Stadium in Carpark A3 (for up to 10 minutes). This allows you to park your car, walk your child into the facility safely and sign them into or out of the program. After this is completed you will then need to move your vehicle from the pick up/drop off bay. If you wish to stay and watch your child for a duration of time you will need to pay for parking in A3 or an alternative carpark using the CellOPark app.

Unfortunately, participants in the Carnaby Kids School Holiday Sports Program do not qualify for childcare rebate as the program is “Sport Based” and as such cannot be registered under the National Childcare Accreditation Act. We do however have a very thorough Policies and Procedure guideline that the Carnaby Kids program abides by.
If your child is unwell, please notify the Stadium as unwell children will not be accepted into the program. In order to receive a credit, a medical certificate needs to be provided.
If your child is not quite of age or is having their birthday during the holidays you may ask for discretion to be accepted into the program. This can be done through contacting our Carnaby Kids Team on (08) 9266 7052 or firstname.lastname@example.org
All children will not be allowed to use mobile phones, iPads or any other electronic devices during the Carnaby Kids programs. Children using these such devices will have them confiscated and they will be returned to their parents/guardians when they are picked up at the end of the day.
