Nomads COVID 19 Policy:

From Friday 3rd December 2021, Christchurch will move to the 'Orange' traffic light setting under the NZ Govt COVID-19 protection framework. In order for our programmes and events to continue, Nomads will be requiring any participants and/or spectators in or around Nomads events to display their "My Vaccine Pass" either as a paper copy or digitally. 

Please note that these are mandated rules from the Government to ensure that we can continue to operate under the orange traffic light guidelines. Nomads passes no judgement towards your individual choices. 

All children under 12 years and 3 months are exempt and do not need to provide a vaccine pass. 


Some key points to note are:

  • To participate in any Nomads organized events or programmes, members over 12 years and 3 months must display their vaccine pass and have this verified at the designated sign in desk by a member of our staff. Signage and posters will be available to point you in the right direction.

  • The clubrooms are open only to members with a vaccine pass and this must be displayed on entry. This includes the upstairs area, balcony, changing rooms and toilets.

  • Ensure you scan in via the COVID-19 tracer app or use the sign-in spreadsheet - this is still a requirement at orange.

  • Face masks are encouraged but not mandatory.

  • If you do not have a vaccine pass, you are not permitted to participate in any of our programmes / events at this time.

Hygiene Safety

Even though we are a highly vaccinated country, COVID-19 can still spread in our communities.

To slow the spread of the virus, and continue to help protect you, your whānau, and your community, it is important to keep up the healthy habits we know.

  • Regularly wash and thoroughly dry your hands or use hand sanitizer.

  • Sneeze and cough into your elbow.

  • Keep your distance from people you do not know.

  • Clean or disinfect shared surfaces often.

  • If you have cold, flu or COVID-19 symptoms, stay home and get a test.


Football Training Programme Handbook:


Nomads has prepared a lockdown training handbook designed to help keep the players active and fit during lockdown. There are a number of different football activities and challenges within the handbook as well as some information on mindfulness, resilience and other mental strength and character building activities.
