Inter-school sport

For inter-school sport where there are fewer than 500 people, the event convenor is to complete the Queensland Government COVID Safe Event Checklist (PDF, 324KB) for each sporting event.

For events hosting 500 to 10,000 people, the event convenor is to complete the COVID Safe Plan Checklist for their relevant sport under an approved COVID Safe Industry Plan, e.g. appendix 4 of field sports (PDF, 986KB), for each sporting event.

Gatherings for sport activities and competitions at external venues are permitted to be held at venues that have approved COVID Safe Industry Plans.

Representative school sport

For representative school sport where there are fewer than 500 people, the event convenor is to complete the Queensland Government COVID Safe Event Checklist for each sporting event.

For events hosting 500 to 10,000 people, the event convenor must complete the COVID Safe Plan Checklist (PDF, 324KB) for their relevant sport under an approved COVID Safe Industry Plan, e.g. appendix 4 of field sports (PDF, 986KB), for each sporting event.

Gatherings for sport activities and competitions at external venues are permitted to be held at venues that have approved COVID Safe Industry Plans.

Planning for all representative school sport events will include consideration of the Roadmap (PDF, 175KB), AIS Framework and Industry Framework for COVID Safe Events (PDF, 1.5MB).

If parents and spectators are permitted at an event, they will be required to provide their contact details prior to venue entry for the purpose of Queensland Department of Health COVID contact tracing.

Sport in the non-state schooling sector

COVID Safe Event Checklists (PDF, 324KB) (for events with fewer than 500 people) and COVID Safe Plan Checklists (for events with 500 to 10,000 people, dependent on the Approved Safe Industry Plan, e.g. appendix 4 of field sports (PDF, 986KB)) will apply to events managed by Department of Education representatives, including state school sporting competitions.

Competitions overseen by an independent body or school jurisdiction other than state schools should refer to these checklists as a guide and observe additional directives that may be in place from their governing body, including gathering restrictions.
