Junior small groups

At a local eastern suburb venue seems it's still ok for parents to take there kids to join a small group training with the premier league import who runs these sessions when not playing any sport.

I personally think some are missing the point of reducing activities which are non essential and social distancing in order to slow down the spread.

What do you think ?

Maybe these pro coaches should use the government funds to take a break.

It's an individuals right to decide if they are going to not vaccinate there child.

Why can’t people decide if they are going to let there child continue to do individual workouts.

No individuals putting money ahead of safety... shooting around with a mate and even being supervised yeah ok but to encourage actively training session - not cricket. Aint on...assume be parents there adding to numbers. Then cross over of groups. What might seem insignificance becomes larger and importional to reducing risk the social distancing guidelines. Which clearly state separation spacing... disappointing but same attitude as Bondi. She be right mate but cobber times they are a changing my dingo dimbat fiend. Do you bit. Slip slop and separate.

Was KB a yearly appointment? If not and he has multi year deal how does that work, does he get a payout?
I suspect he is out of contract and trying to build his personal coaching business. To start with it was very elitist, latest dumb venture was just to show up with ball and do some workouts under guise it was safe which it wasnt. But mums and dads would have been starstruck to have Billy or Sally train with him. Either way it was stupid in current climate. Can see how desperate these coaches are, nothing to fall back on financially. Rashad has to fund his cough, cough, lifestyle somehow. And any imports are screwed without these gigs.

Last I saw, the official advice was that personal training groups in a park were OK with a small number (10 or whatever it was) and social distancing. Has that advice changed?

The official advice has been two steps behind ever since this thing started.

We should be in total do-not-leave-the-house-under-any-circumstances lockdown, but schools are going ahead because apparently this is the only illness in the history of mankind that can't be transmitted by children.

Don't wait for the government to ban things. Stay inside.

It is so stupid. If the government had been strong and immediately introduced strong sanctions both Australians and the rest of the world would be praising them. Instead we're bringing in piss weak solutions. The back down of haircuts now being allowed to be longer than 30 minutes is so ridiculous it would be funny if it wasn't so pathetic. And we're a freaking island continent, imagine if we were in Europe or Asia, would be behind the Italians! Can't even agree as a nation to close all state borders.
Really waiting for Pauline Hanson to come storming in, unbelievable but she probably would have been better prime minister in this situation, and yes, I know she's a bigoted racist.

^If we're not behind why do every day we face new restrictions. If in front you would think there would be no restrictions or weeks before something changes. Had the chance to be global leader, even a national leader but state and federal politicians were too scared of pissing the Chinese off as usual.
Schools remain a hot topic, close them. Those that have parents in emergency services, hire a freaking nanny if need be to look after them at home. Chucking money at every new start recipient ain't gonna do much, drug dealers will get their money up front now. And with people home, crime will drop.
Put all persons with or suspected of virus under home detention, sucks for them but saves the community.

Govt couldn't just come out and introduce all measures/controls from the first day there was diagnosis confirmed. That would have created chaos. Things had to be staged to avoid a total meltdown. Look at the greedy selfish panicky bastards that have stripped the supermarkets of most needed items. No regard for others. Had that continued anarchy may have followed.

If there's only one case, or if there are zero cases, you don't have to shut down the entire country. Testing and quarantine at the border, isolate anyone who had contact with anyone who tests positive. Worst case you shut down one city for three weeks. Now the whole country is shut down for potentially years because we let it get out of hand.

When the peak has been reached, things will start returning. Authorities don't want a sharp spike, no way health services would cope, best they can hope is a slow smooth rate of infection and try and give hospitals a chance over a longer period of time. Most will get it and have mild illness, 80% of cases.
We're about to go into our flu season, so the next 6-8 months are done. Around Christmas the worst should be over and this time next year we should be back to normal in a way. Of course virus may have mutated and we're all dead.

There's already reports of re-infection in China, which means getting the disease doesn't give you immunity. If true, we're shut down until there's a vaccine at a minimum, but that news doesn't bode well for a vaccine either.

A Nobel Prize-winning immunobiologist has indicated his strong suspicion that the cases of 'reinfection' were false negatives, before the subsequent accurate result.

There are a lot of unknowns regarding how long we will be shut down but if we can only afford limited social interaction until there's a vaccine, re-booting the economy will take priority over sporting activities.

Reply #801911 | Report this post

Yeah, there hasn't been any confirmation of re-infection, which is why I said "reports" and "if true".

In an ideal world we can get it low enough to contain what we've got via track-and-trace, which will still mean closed borders one would assume. Tasmania's numbers probably allow for that already, I'm not sure if any of them are out in the wild. NSW is a long, long way from normal life.

The issue for me is they only say "State X has Y cases", which in itself is meaningless. For example, Tasmania recorded 11 new cases overnight. Eight were from people getting off cruise ships. Assuming they were appropriately quarantined the risk to the larger Tasmanian population hasn't actually increased as a result of those eight.

Focus on whether or not there's been recorded community transmission is silly, especially since we were only testing those who had been overseas initially so of course they weren't going to record a community transmission. The question is people who were out in the community at any point while they had the virus. If the only cases in a given state were people who were under quarantine before arrival, the risk to anyone else in that state is zero regardless of how many cases they actually have. If there is only one recorded case but that person has been out in public or interacted with anyone at all, then everyone is at risk.

Every day a new rule comes into effect, most of the time just a bigger response to a previous one.
But back to the original issue, courts have been closed down to stop maverick coaches training. But outdoor groups can operate up to 10 people. When will these geniuses seize upon this loophole and find an outdoor basket to train. Or even tennis courts to work on handles. Needs to be yes or no. If it gets banned like it should, those running the session should be fined big time. If parents are working and kids are old enough to stay home alone, parents would have no idea what's going on. One aforementioned coach hasn't got insurance, wonder what would happen if suddenly a kid infects everyone and so on down the line. If they go to visit Nanna on weekend and she gets it I hope the coach gets jail time. But until then it will be grey area. Simple, just ban these small groups training and police it. Not hard for patrols to drive past and see organised activity.

The previous rule was 10 people, that has now been overtaken by the new rule.

It was mentioned by Morrison that means Fitness Bootcamps will now be forced to close unless it is a one-on-one personal training session
