Return to Play Guidelines
by posted 07/02/2020


SUMMER PROGRAM RETURN TO PLAY GUIDELINES

 

As activities resume, the Peters Township Basketball Association (“PTBBA”) is committed to the health and safety of all players, coaches, parents, families and residents within our communities. These Return to Play Guidelines set forth the precautions that the PTBBA intends to undertake for the resumption of basketball activities in our Summer Programs in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.  These guidelines are based on recommendations from the CDC, the PA Department of Health, and the Peters Township Parks & Recreation Department.

Individual decisions as to whether a child should participate in any PTBBA activity is solely the decision of that child’s parents and the PTBBA respects all parents’ decisions regarding the health and safety of their children.  If anyone is not comfortable returning to play, then they should not participate.  To the extent anyone decides to participate in PTBBA activities, then, in addition to all applicable state and federal health guidelines and protocols, the PTBBA requires compliance by all involved with these guidelines for the health and safety of all of our members.

  • Each session will be limited to 30 kids maximum. 
  • Sessions will be schedule with a 15-20 minute break between to allow all participants to exit from the earlier session before participants for the next session arrive.  Participants are not to arrive more than 5 minutes earlier than your scheduled time and are asked to immediately depart the court/gym area immediately after all practices and games.
  • All coaches, players, and parents must conduct a self-health assessment before attending any session.  Do not attend any session if you do not feel well, have a cough or fever, or have been in contact with anyone with COVID-19 in the last 14 days.
  • Anyone who acts or looks ill or has been in contact with an individual with COVID-19 in the last 14 days will be sent home.
  • Coaches and players should wear masks at all times when possible.  Players do not need to wear masks during play.
  • Social Distance (6 ft) whenever possible.  Team huddles should observe social distancing.  No team huddles or meetings after practices or games as players and coaches should promptly leave the court/gym.
  • No post game handshakes lines.  Sportsmanship should be maintained in another manner within the confines of social distancing and these guidelines.
  • Wash hands with soap and water frequently.  All players are required to bring hand sanitizer to every session.  The sharing of hand sanitizer is prohibited.
  • Players are required to bring their own adequate supply of water to each session.  The sharing of water bottles is prohibited.
  • To the extent possible, players are encouraged to bring their own basketballs to each session.  Any basketballs that are shared will be sanitized after each session.
  • The use of scrimmage vests, or pinnies, is not recommended at this time.
  • All participants should shower and wash all clothing and washable items upon returning home after every practice and game.
  • All participants should disinfect non-washable equipment (shoes, balls, equipment, etc.) after every practice and game.
  • Parents, relatives, and siblings will not be permitted in the court/gym area or the common areas of the Community Rec Center (“CRC”) during sessions.  Parents should drop their children off no more than 5 minutes before the scheduled start time and wait in their cars until the session has ended.  Notwithstanding, anyone who is a member of the CRC may use the CRC as permitted by the current CRC rules and guidelines for all members.
  • If you, your child, or anyone your child has been in contact with is diagnosed with COVID-19, immediately notify the PTBBA President, Jim Malloy (president@ptbasketball.com).  Jim Malloy will immediately inform the Parks and Recreation Director.
    • Any individual diagnosed with COVID-19 will not be allowed to return to activity until providing a written clearance from a doctor and have met CDC’s criteria to discontinue home isolation.
    • Any area used by a sick or infected person will be closed immediately.  After 24 hours, the area will be cleaned and disinfected before anyone is permitted to return to the area.
  • All posted signs, rules, and guidelines at any given facility where a PTBBA session is held will be followed.
  • Familiarize yourself with and follow CDC guidelines as well as those of the local health authorities. See https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/schools-childcare/youth-sports.html.
