Safety Guidelines for Athletes

Protocols and event specifics may change based on the changing circumstances, ordinances, or other applicable laws.

  1. Workouts are voluntary. Students should discuss their participation with their families regarding their own specific family health, needs and concerns.
  2. Athletes should refrain from participation if they exhibit any symptoms associated with COVID-19.
  3. Each day athletes should take their temperature at home (we will check it again when you arrive). If it is above 100.4, stay home.
  4. Each athlete must bring the following items with them every day: 
    1. Full water bottle
    2. Towel
    3. Face mask: Athletes will not be expected to wear them at all times but should have them available. (We strongly encourage a brand called "Gaiter")
  5. If possible, students should arrive to practice in a vehicle of only immediate family members.
  6. No locker rooms will be available. Athletes should arrive ready to practice.
  7. Social distancing should be adhered to at all times. Students may not gather even in small groups without social distancing.
  8. No spectators or parents in any of the practice areas.
  9. Hand washing/sanitizing often will be mandatory.
  10. All personal clothing and equipment must be taken home each day for sanitizing.
  11. Families who may need specific accommodations should contact their coach to begin discussing their individual needs.
