Frequent Q&A’s

Are parents/ other spectators allowed to come watch programs?
Spectators are now permitted, but must not interact with the program. Spectators will be expected to keep a large distance from the field of play, practice physical distancing from other spectators, and not interact with coaches or athletes before, during, or after the practice. Any members who must interact with their athlete will be required to attend as a 1-1 support, and will be screened and included in the contact tracing process at the start of each session.

Are masks mandatory?
YES! Every member of a program is required to wear a mask to and from the program. Depending on your sport, you may not need to wear a mask during physical activity. Every member is required to bring their own mask, however, we will have emergency masks on hand at each program.
