Welcome to the 2022 Navshield registration page. This page is for emergency services teams entering the 1 day event only. This includes SES, RFS, Police, Ambulance, VRA, Military.
Other groups (rogainers, bushwalking clubs, outdoor groups, education groups), or teams for the 2 day event should choose the appropriate option HERE.
If you are attending as a supporter (eg non-team member) please register HERE for COVID tracking purposes. Please note that while Team member registration closes on or before 6/7/22, registration of supporters will be open till 14/7/22.
Important Requirements so we can be COVID safe
It is a requirement of entry that attendees including teams and supporters:
- Test negative on a Rapid Antigen Test taken within 24hrs prior to entry (test to be taken at home);
- Are double vaccinated (unless medically exempt or ineligible);
- Are not Covid-19 positive;
- Do not have symptoms of Covid-19 & are not a close contact.
If you are unable to meet these requirements, you cannot attend Navshield2022. Staff at the entry gate will ask you to declare you meet the requirements before granting entry. please also bring a mask to navshield for use when social distancing isn't possible.
On the next page you will be asked if you wish to set up a RegisterNow account, or login using Facebook or Google. You can set up a RegisterNow account if you wish, but we suspect most people will proceed without setting up an account by simply selecting "Continue as Guest".
You must enter as teams. You cannot enter as individuals. When you start registration you have two options:
- "Join existing team" (you will need to know the team name)
If you are starting a new registration, you will need to select "Create Team" then enter a team name, whether you are part of the team & your details as team captain. The team captain is the person who registers the team and adds / edits team member details. The team captain may register a team with all team members in one session or add team members later. During registration, you must also nominate the "Team Join Type" - please select "PRIVATE" rather than 'public' or 'password'.
When registering team members, the following team member details should be available before proceeding:
- Email address;
- Mobile phone number;
- Meal choices (meat/vegetarian) and any meals to purchase (see here for details);
- Whether this is their first time competing in a Navshield event.
Individual participants can request to join an existing team by selecting the "Join Team" button on the registration page. You will then be asked to select which team you wish to join and the captain of that team will get an email requesting them to add you to that team. Only the team captain can add members to a team.
Assuming you are from an emergency service, NSW SES has paid for your entry fee and the meals listed below at the event. Please register as normal, including selecting your options for meals. If this is all you select your amount payable will be zero.
1 day team participants get:
- Participant fee;
- Saturday breakfast;
- 1 day field ration pack;
- Saturday dinner.
If you wish to have additional meals beyond these you will have to pay for them yourself. Support team members will also need to pay for their own meals (which should be included as additional meals against a registered participant). Payment can be made by credit card or paypal. RegisterNow will add a booking fee of 3.3% of the total to the purchase and a payment processing fee of 0.6-2% depending on how you make the payment (approx amounts Paypal=1.2%, Visa-Credit=1.14%, Visa-Debit=0.69%, Mastercard-Credit=1.16%, Mastercard-Debit=0.63%). These fees will increase to a flat 5.5% on 1/7/22.
Please note NPWS have imposed a maximum limit of 500 participants so registrations will close early if this limit is reached. To ensure your team is included in this limit, please finalise your registrations when all details are entered by stepping through the process of 'making a payment' on the team summary page even if the amount owing is zero (this will not incur any charge if the amount owing is $0).
All participants will be required to sign an acknowledgement of risk and risk waiver form.
Finally: For NSW SES teams - the NSW SES asks that you do not decline the catering options offered here but then claim a meal allowance through your unit. NSW SES policy is that the SES provides meals for personnel whether they are at base or in the field which is why ration packs are provided for teams.
