COVID Protocols

  1. Parents must complete an electronic Health Check form for their child before every class date. This form confirms that the parent and child have been asymptomatic and have not had a fever within 12 hours before every class. If a form is not completed for a player, that player may not participate on that day. If the parent does not complete the form, the parent may not participate on that day.
  2. Due to the current number limitation, no spectators are allowed inside the Adventist HealthCare Fieldhouse. Our staff will meet your child out front of AHF and escort them to the courts to ensure they are in the correct spot, then after class, we will walk them back out to meet you in the parking lot.
  3. Masks must be worn the entire time participants are inside the Adventist HealthCare Fieldhouse.
  4. Sanitation stations have been installed throughout the Adventist HealthCare Fieldhouse
  5. Class start times have been staggered to allow time for departing players for fewer people around the courts.
