Covid-19 Player Policy

With Covid-19 creating so much uncertainty, all participants are aware of how it has impacted our ability to provide representative experiences and the potential scenarios participants/players could find themselves managing. A number of these scenarios have additional financial costs that must be agreed to on selection.

I accept that on selection, I have one week to withdraw with no costs incurred. At one-week post team announcement, I carry the risk of any charges not able to be recouped through NHHA’s best endeavours in the event of the withdrawal or exclusion of NHHA Teams from any tournament or festival NHHA may be participating in. Charges include but are not limited to any non-refundable costs associated with accommodation and travel.

Any participant that has a Covid-19 test at any point in the campaign must inform NHHA. Any participant awaiting the results of a Covid-19 test on the date of departure must not travel with the team. Any cost linked to changing the participant’s flight that sees them join the team later than scheduled departure will be invoiced in full to the said participant.

All participants must not display any Covid-19 symptoms 48 hours before to departure to travel with the team.

All participants to the best of their ability must avoid or minimise their their involvement at/in social gatherings, large events etc. two weeks prior to Tournament departure dates.

NHHA reserves the right to withdraw any player who does not follow instructions given regarding the management of Covid-19; participants will be excluded from attending the tournament/festival or sent home at their own expense.

I accept that tournament experiences may at NHHA discretion be equalised across tournaments/festivals when calculating participation fees. I understand the determination to equalise or not is solely a decision to be made by NHHA in advance of any tournament.  

Where Covid-19 impacts any tournament/festival experience I accept that if the experience is equalised or subsidised; non-recoverable costs are spread across all registered participants within each age group. 

Should the U18/NHC National Tournament or any U16 Tournament experiences be cancelled when the team is already in attendance, NHHA will take the following approach:

Localised Travel (teams that left Auckland via van/car)

Teams that have travelled by vehicle will depart at the next most appropriate time.

Should the U18/NHC National Tournament or any U16 Tournament experiences be cancelled when the team is already in attendance, NHHA will take the following approach:

Localised Travel (teams that left Auckland via van/car)

Teams that have travelled by vehicle will depart at the next most appropriate time.

Non-Localised Travel (teams that fly)

Teams that have travelled by flight will have the following approach applied if NHHA involvement in the tournament is compromised. The Covid-19 Level combined with the stage of the tournament has been considered to create the following management approach to provide transparency:

Cancelled before Day 4 of tournament Play (U18/NHC) and Day 3 of Tournament Play (U16):

For any change in level that sees the tournament cancelled (Level 2-4) NHHA will book the participants on the next available flight that does not cost more than $200 additional per person. On agreeing to the T&C’s you approve that NHHA can invoice retrospectively an additional $200 per person to cover the cost of getting any team home. This cost is shared across all participants.

If a player wants to arrange their flight outside of the team arrangement:

NHHA will assist in seeing if the allocated flight cost can be amended and then will charge the new booking, but any increased cost will be that of the participant. Any increased cost in doing so will be at the expense of the participant.

If the flight change is over $200 the participants will stay the duration of the tournament and return to Auckland on their pre- booked flight.

Cancelled on or after day 4 of tournament play (U18/NHC Only):

Cancellation at Level 2 – the team will stay the remainder of the Tournament and return on their scheduled flights.

Cancellation at Level 3 – NHHA will book the participants on the next available flight that can be achieved if there is no additional transfer cost. If there is an additional cost, the team will remain at the location for the rest of the tournament duration and return on thier original flight.

Cancellation at Level 4 – NHHA will book the participants on the next available flight that does not cost more than $200 additional per person. On agreeing to the T&C’s you approve that NHHA can invoice retrospectively an additional $200 per person to cover the cost of getting any team home. This cost is shared across all participants.

I accept that I must follow any MOH, or Government guidance related to pandemics. If I am required to isolate, any expenses related to this will be charged directly to me as the participant. The individual’s management needed to isolate will be discussed with parents, and a plan will need to be put in place to support the participant.

I also accept that NHHA reserve the right to charge any other additional expenses up to the value of $300 per participant that sit outside of the initial campaign charge that is incurred due to a pandemic response management strategy. Any expense above $500 will be discussed with parents/guardians and will be at the cost of the individuals/teams impacted. The cost would not be covered by participants/teams that are not required

Example: A Team is required to stay an additional night at the location awaiting covid-19 test results. This expenditure would be shared across the participants/teams impacted.

This Covid-19 Management Policy Clause applies to the management of the U18/NHC Campaign and has been signed off by the NHHA CEO. It will be reviewed at the completion of each campaign.
