In order to avoid too much traffic in the building or lingering before and after, there will be no spectators allowed at practices for the time being.
Every staff member will take and record their temperature before practice. Every player will have their temperature taken (with digital thermometer) before entering the building. If a player has a temperature above 100.4, they will not be allowed to enter the building.
If the player has a fever over 100.4; feels sick or is displaying symptoms; has been exposed to anyone diagnosed with COVID19; or has underlying health conditions that could put them at greater risk, they should not attend.
Bottles of hand sanitizer will be available and we will require all players/coaches use the sanitizer before, during (water breaks) and after practice.
Ball and General Cleaning:
There will be 20 balls available per team for practice. Following practice, these will be sanitized and only used for one team’s practice. AAO Staff and Ozark Juniors staff will also be completing additional sanitizing of common touch surfaces throughout the facility.
No high fives, fist bumps or touching player to player or player to trainer. Maintain social distancing among all players and coaches in the gym of 6ft. minimum (12ft when possible).
The current guidelines set forth by the state of Arkansas REQUIRE a face covering when not actively exercising. All staff must wear a mask the entire time they are present in the building. Players do not have to wear a mask when they are on the court participating but are required to wear a mask when entering the building, setting up nets, taking down nets and in extended periods of non-activity. The current recommendation is for players to wear a mask at all times, if it is not inhibitory to the activity, in order to avoid being quarantined or contracting the virus. Players may wear masks the entire time if they are more comfortable, but this is not required during active participation at this time.
Please use common protective practices: cover your mouth if you cough; sneeze into your elbow or your armpit, wash your hands, etc.
