COVID 19 Health and Safety Information

Turf Access Plan

All training groups must enter from the designated access points.

Turf 1A & 1C: Access at either end of the turf, not the middle gate.

Turf 2A & 2C: Access from the dug out. Relevant side must be used. I.e. do not enter Turf 2A from the side of Turf 2C.

DO NOT cross the halves.

Contact Tracing

When you return to Gallagher Hockey Centre, you will notice that we have split the entrance tunnel in two. On entry to the venue everyone (no exceptions at all) will need to sign in. There is a digital solution for this, using your phone to sign in through the QR Code system and signing out on departure as well. The QR code will recognise your details on subsequent visits, meaning you will only enter your details for your first visit to the turf. Waikato Hockey can also 100% confirm that this information collected will not be used for anything other than for its intended use, that is ‘contact tracing’, should a further outbreak occur. This tool is to keep us all safe and there will be no exceptions to the sign in process. If anyone is not prepared to sign in, then unfortunately we will have no option but to turn that person away from the venue.


After signing in, on the way into the venue you will be asked to clean your hands. There are sanitiser stations that you will be required to use before fully entering the ground.

Group Limits

Half turf bookings are now available, with a maximum of 10 people (including a coach) as set out by the gathering restrictions. Groups can not book a full turf and have a coach floating between two training sessions.
