Netball training sessions suspended as a precaution

Precautionary measures: the Bermuda Netball Association has suspended all training sessions at Bernard Park

The Bermuda Netball Association has ordered all clubs to cease all training at Bernard Park out of caution over a recent spike in Covid-19 cases.

The association issued a statement yesterday advising all clubs “to cease training at Bernard Park for the week of December 7”.

BNA added: “This decision has been made out of an abundance of caution, as a result of the current increase in Covid-19 transmission cases in Bermuda.

“The health and safety of our stakeholders and their families are absolutely paramount. Please continue to do your part in keeping yourselves and our island safe!”

The news just days after the association were forced to delayed the start of the Winter League season until January 9 as a precaution after a member of staff at Dellwood Middle School, in Pembroke, tested positive for the coronavirus.

“In light of the new information released from the Ministry of Health as it relates to Dellwood Middle School students and faculty, we regret to inform you that the BNA will be suspending the start of the Winter League Netball Season,” Kimale Evans, the BNA president, said in a press release. “In an effort to safeguard our players, coaches and affiliates, out of an abundance of caution all divisions will start January 9, 2021.

“Please continue to do your part in keeping yourselves, your loved ones and our island safe, by staying abreast and adhering to the Bermuda Government recommendations as it relates to Covid-19.”
