UV levels

Don't be fooled

When UV levels are 3 and above, the sun's rays are strong enough to damage your skin and put you at risk.

Don’t be fooled by cooler weather or by cloud cover, you are still at risk of sunburn when playing sports in spring and autumn! Even in winter in many parts of NSW, UV levels remain 3 or above for some or all of the day and sun protection remains important.

Sydney AQI

Air Quality Index

The Air Quality Index (AQI) is a scale of air pollution. It's a measure of how clean or polluted the air is.

The AQI will help you understand the current level of air quality with a number value and colour code; a lower value indicates better air quality and a higher value, worse. Hover over the number value for details.

Cumberland City Council Grounds Information & Closures

You can check if a sporting ground is open or closed by calling the information line or visiting the 'Sports Ground Closures' website page; details below. This information line is available to the public 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.

Cumberland City Council

Sports Ground Closures Information Website

Club Responsibilities

When Council determines that grounds are open users remain responsible for determining the suitability of grounds for use of individual grounds in terms of player safety and potential ground damage and are requested to exercise discretion in the event of any wet weather.

If sportsgrounds are closed by Council, clubs and organisations do not have the authority to approve their use.

Council’s decision on whether to close a sportsground will be based on the likelihood of injury to players, the likelihood of damage to the playing surface and the prevailing weather forecast.

If Council’s ground closure instructions are ignored and play goes ahead, the user will be responsible for the full cost of repair to the field(s) and their usage arrangements may be terminated.

Even if Council deems a sportsground to be open at 12.00pm on Friday, clubs and organisations don’t have to play if rain occurs later that day or during the weekend and injury to players or damage to the sportsground becomes a possibility.

City of Parramatta

Sports Ground Closures Information Website

Club Responsibilities

City of Parramatta provides up-to-date sports ground closure information in the local governmental area. Users are encouraged to monitor the information daily, as grounds can remain closed for several days after a period of rain.

The use of a sporting field following significant rainfall can damage the playing surface and raise risk management issues with emphasis on player safety. To ensure that our sporting fields are maintained at a safe standard, it is necessary for City of Parramatta to close grounds until they are suitable for use again. 

All users and hiring users must observe sporting field closures, as liability for the cost of rectifying any wet weather damage will be incurred.

When a ground is closed it is closed for that night and the following day, until the Wet Weather Line is updated again in the afternoon. Sports ground floodlighting is not operational when fields are closed.

hot weather policy

sun thermometer
Nice aussie weather...
don't forget Slip, Slop, Slap

Applicable to all Football NSW competitions and events.

With high temperatures consideration must be given to the effects of heat and humidity on amateur athletes, particularly children, involved in football activities.

Football NSW recommends the following in accordance with duty of care and information as issued by Sports Medicine Australia.

Recommended Temperatures

Recommended temperatures for cancellation or postponement of events including games, training or any other physical activities. Cancellations or postponements at the recommended temperatures should be applied in consideration of local conditions.

Postponement or cancellation is recommended for events involving adults at a temperature of 37° celsius.

CHILDREN (up to and including 16 years of age)
Postponement or cancellation is recommended for events involving children at a temperature of 32° celsius.
CAUTION: These are the maximum cancellation temperatures. Cancellation of games, training or events at lower temperatures may be necessary depending on factors such as: humidity; local conditions including radiant heat from synthetic surfaces and lack of ventilation at indoor centres; player wellbeing; and player acclimatisation. Note that young children are especially at risk in the heat and should not be forced to continue playing or training if they appear distressed or complain about feeling unwell.

wet weather policy

Member Protection Information Officer

Greystanes FC has a Member Protection Information Officer (MPIO). The role of the MPIO is to be the first point of contact for anyone with an enquiry or concern about a member protection issue.  The MPIO is a sounding board for these concerns and can offer information on complaint resolution, policies and other aspects of the issue being discussed. 

The MPIO does not offer advice, suggestions or recommendations and the MPIO does not investigate complaints or reports.  It is the responsibility of the Club (President and/or Executive) to decide who investigates complaints or reports but it should never be the MPIO who conducts the investigation.

Member Protection encompasses several areas: Harassment, abuse, victimisation, racial vilification, child protection and bullying. Any matters outside of this scope are not member protection matters.
