Hands will be sanitized upon entry and exit by everyone!
Masks will be worn at all times by spectators, coaches, referees, and players. This includes players while playing on or off the court
In an effort to not have to limit the number of spectators per athlete for this tournament we ask teams and parents who are not playing or reffing a match to please leave the facility and wait outside or in your cars to reduce the total number of people in the gyms and around the court.
Due to the city putting limits on number of courts inside the convention center, we have secured additional sites/locations close to downtown to host additional courts for additional space and courts
Players , Coaches, and spectators will not be allowed into any location until 30 min prior to the start of THEIR DAUGHTER'S pool play. To meet spectator social distancing requirements, each location will have bleachers and chairs spaced out appropriately and we ask everyone to PLEASE leave chairs where they have been placed. Each location will have a "Covid Cop" patrolling the courts to make sure chairs stay where they were placed and that people do not gather. If asked to move or separate please understand that we ALL want to see the athletes have a safe season.
Please bring pens and pencils for reffing assignments. Bookkeeper and libero tracker will sit at opposite ends of the score table while the score flipper will sit in a designated chair distanced between the table and one of the benches.
Teams will not switch sides during the match.
Sanitizing spray will be provided at each score table to sanitize tables, scoreboards, benches and game ball in between matches.
