Summer 2021 Mask & Spectator Policy

MASK POLICY

  • Everyone entering & exiting the facility for Avalanche Athletics must be wearing a mask.
  • Avalanche Staff, Coaches, and Spectators must wear a mask at all times.
  • Athletes, once actively engaged in practice may remove their mask.
  • During match play, athletes who are on the court may be without a mask if they choose to do so.
    • Athletes waiting in rotation, must keep their mask on until entering the set (rotating in).
    • Once an athlete rotates out, they must put their mask back on.

SPECTATOR POLICY

  • Practices: Due to limited space in the gyms and the number of athletes we have, we will only be allowing 1 spectator per player for practices for the 7/9u, 10/12u, 13/16u and our 4s program for the summer. However, parents/spectators do not need to stay for practices. You may drop and go.
  • Matches: We will be allowing 2 spectators per athlete in for Thursday matches. This will not necessarily be strictly enforced, as long as all spectators, coaches, staff, and athletes are adhering to our mask policy.
  • Temperature Checks: Everyone entering the facility will still have their temperature checked prior to entering either gym.
  • All parents who are attending either practices or matches must enter with their athlete. Once practices and matches have started, the doors will be locked and I will not have any Avalanche staff monitoring the table or doors. Therefore you will not be let in until a staff member is back at the table. Non-Avalanche staff many not let anyone in the building.

 

POSITIVE COVID TEST

Should an athlete or coach test positive for COVID-19 during the season, these are the immediate protocols that must and will be followed with no exceptions.

  1. Player or Coach test Positive: Immediately notify Avalanche Athletics. Avalanche will then notify his/her team. The team (athletes & coaches) must either/or:
    1. Quarantine for 14 days before you’re allowed back into the facility for practices or matches
    2. Get tested and you may return to practices and matches with proof of negative test results
  2. Player or Coach Cautionary Test: Should a player or coach deem it necessary to go get a COVID test out of a precaution, regardless of the reason why, they will need to sit out until a negative test is returned.
  3. Time missed due to COVID are not eligible for refunds or credits.

 

Avalanche is committed to moving forward with our spring season. I truly feel we’re able to keep the athletes, coaches, and staff safe to the best of our ability. Should I feel that Avalanche is unable to keep everyone safe, for any reason, I will immediately stop and suspend all programming. The health and safety of our athletes and their families come first.
