**UPDATE - SAFETY GUIDELINES**

From Shakopee Facilities:

Please note that starting July 26 and moving forward all persons entering the facility must have a face covering. NO FACE COVERING EQUALS NO ENTRY TO THE BUILDING.

Athletes may remove the face covering once their activity begins. But once their activity is over the face covering is again required. Simple way to say it is that outside of their activity a face covering is required.

Coaches like all others must have a face covering to enter the building. We would ask that coaches leave a face covering on whenever possible.

Also to continue, unless we speak otherwise, parents are still dropping kids off and not allowed in the building for practices, scrimmages or camps.


PARENTS, PLAYERS & COACHES SAFETY PLAN

Parents and Players Safety Guidelines

  1. No parent, guardian, family member, sibling, or friend will be allowed into the gym/field house.   **Parents of 1-4th graders: Someone will meet your kids at the Field House doors to assist taking them to the gym and then bringing them to the doors after the session.**
  2. Before you leave the house, parent or guardian must complete the following symptoms checks:
    • Insure player temporal temperature is below 100.4
    • Confirm players does not have a cough, shortness of breath, and/or lack of smell/taste
  3. Players with elevated temperature over 100.4 or other symptoms must refrain from participation, self-quarantine, and wait 7 days to see if symptoms resolve. If after 7 days they are symptom-free, they may return to the gym.
  4. Players must bring their own hand sanitizer and use before starting activity and post activity, bring their own water bottle.  Drinking fountains will not be available.  
  5. PLAYERS MUST BRING THEIR OWN BASKETBALL OR THEY WON’T BE ABLE TO PARTICIPATE.
  6. Players must stay within their assigned group/pod for each session and for the duration of the camp.   
  7. Masking, as appropriate, while following social distancing and maintaining proper health etiquette, in particular, hand washing must occur.  Social distancing (6 feet or more) must occur between all players and coaches.

Coaches Safety Guidelines

  1. Coaches are required to ensure that NO player parents, guardians, family members, siblings, or friends are allowed into the gym/field house.
  2. Coaches need to complete the following system checks on themselves:
    • Ensure your temporal temperature is below 100.4
    • Confirm you do not have a cough, shortness of breath, and/or lack of smell/taste
  3. Coaches with elevated temperature over 100.4, must refrain from participation, self-quarantine, and wait 7 days to see if symptoms resolve. If after 7 days they are symptom-free, they may return to the gym.
  4. Coaches must bring their own hand sanitizer and use before starting activity and post-activity, and ensure players use sanitizer before starting activity and post activity.
  5. Coaches will focus on skill development, no scrimmaging, no contact drills, or games. This may be revised pending Governor Walz’s orders, as may be updated.
  6. Groups/Pods must be limited to 10 players or less.  Players need to stay within their group/pod and not intermix into another group/pod.  For the time being, the plan is that we will have one player per basketball hoop.
  7. Masking, as appropriate, while following social distancing and maintaining proper health etiquette, in particular, handwashing must occur.  Social distancing (6 feet or more) must occur between all players and coaches.
  8. Coaches must take daily player attendance so contact tracing can be conducted if needed, should anyone become ill with COVID 19.  Before beginning any activity, the coaches of each group/pod must ask each player the following questions.
    • Were you self-screened at home for temperature and was it above 100.4?
    • Have you been asked to self-isolate?
    • Have you been in contact with anyone you know that is a COVID 19 carrier or been in contact with anyone who is self-isolating due to COVID 19 concerns? 

*** If the participant answered “yes” to any of these questions, they must leave immediately.
