COVID Precautions

The closer we get to January, our Medical Advisory Team will look at the COVID numbers and come up with a plan in December.  It is our goal to offer a safe environment for all players, coaches, parents, and family while having an opportunity for the kids to play basketball.

For the player evaluations that will take place in November, we plan on:

  • Limiting the number of people in the Family Life Center by having players take a number and wait outside (or another location) until it is their time for evaluation.
  • Will limit one adult per child to cut down on the numbers during evaluations.
  • Will wipe/clean balls after each use.
  • Will recommend everyone wear a face covering.
  • Hand sanitizer will be available.
