We are only two days away from starting up our workouts. Again, SIGN UP for a time that you will be able to attend each day. This week we will have workouts Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday! Remember you need to REGISTER for your sport as well.
YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO SWITCH TIMES! ***Very Important***
Here are the safety protocols you will need to follow for attending, during and after workouts.
Student-athletes with high-risk conditions or household/close contacts with high-risk conditions may want to avoid and/or adjust participation to reduce risk of transmission.
- Student-athletes with high-risk conditions or household/close contacts with high-risk conditions may want to avoid and/or adjust participation to reduce risk of transmission.
- Students must complete PRE-WORKOUT QUESTIONS each day before workouts
- Students must take temperatures before leaving home.
The foundations of reducing risk should always be kept in mind:
- Avoid participation and attendance if sick (fever and/or symptoms) – always discuss with your primary care provider if questions or concerns.
- Wear a cloth mask or buff to reduce spread of your aerosol to others (the mask captures some of your aerosol and reduces transmission to other people).
- Do not wear medical/surgical masks or N95 masks for exercise as these can decrease airflow.
- Masks must be worn indoors according to the governor’s mandate while practicing or playing. Cloth masks are safe with exercise, they do not decrease oxygen levels, increase carbon dioxide levels, significantly restrict airflow, or cause heat illness. They will take time to get used to, as they can be uncomfortable and increase the perceived effort of exercise.
- Athletes may wear a mask while participating in exertion, but it is not required. Athletes not participating should wear a mask.
- Coaches and sideline personnel should wear masks at all times.
- Social distancing of at least 6 feet when not participating (sideline, waiting for turn, etc.)
- Continue to train in smaller “pods” of athletes to reduce exposure risk.
- “Close contact” is based on the World Health Organization (WHO) recommendation that 15+ minutes of close (within 6 feet) exposure to another increases risk of transmission.
- Continue to emphasize hygiene.
- Hand sanitization/cleaning frequently (every time on and off field) – each athlete should be encouraged to have their own bottle.
- Do not share water or food/snacks.
- Minimize shared equipment as much as possible and sanitize that equipment frequently.
- Clean all equipment used
- Use hand sanitizer before leaving
- Leave immediately after workouts
- Leave out the appropriate exits
