    Covid-19 Guidelines for each school.

    This situation is evolving by the hour. Every school is struggling with what decisions are the “right” ones to make and, in many instances, we may not know what is “right” until we have the benefit of hindsight. Even then, we may not know. With that in mind, the “right” decision is one that considers public health guidance, the law, your school’s mission and culture, and your community’s safety. What is “right” for one school may not be right for another. Please keep this in mind as you review each schools Covid-19 policies  as you visit their campus for home games.

    leaving decisions regarding precautionary measures such as mask wearing and social distancing up to

    West Florida Baptist Academy

    In an effort to provide a low-risk environment for the transmission of COVID-19 during the current pandemic, WFBA coaches and administrators are asking that the following guidelines, procedures and recommendations be followed at all WFBA sporting events until further notice:

    • Please do NOT attend if you are feeling sick or have been around anyone who has been sick!!
    • Cloth Face Coverings (masks) or face shields are REQUIRED to enter the gym.  Once inside the gym, each spectator will get their temperature checked.  You must have a temp below 100.4 to enter.  You will receive a wristband or sticker after entering, and you must wear this all day, or pay and get temp checked again!  Once inside the gym, masks may be removed, only when social distancing has been achieved in the stands or with the people you came with.  We ask everyone to wear a mask when going in and out of the gymnasium and where social distancing is not achievable (in lobby, restrooms, etc.).
    • Players will all have temperatures checked before their games or immediately upon entry into the gym at a specific area.  After this, we expect coaches to monitor temperatures for their own players.
    • Social Distancing is a key to providing a safe environment for our players and fans. Please be respectful and stay with your group/team as much as possible.  Sanitation stations will be available behind each bench and throughout the gym. Each bench will be sanitized in between games when multiple games are being played.
    • Concessions will NOT be provided.  Feel free to bring in food/coolers, etc.  Please use trash receptacles provided in the gym.
    • Players should arrive with masks on and take them off at their bench to compete, and re-cover after the games.
    • Players do not need to shake hands with opponents after the game, please verbalize “good game” or congratulations from your bench areas.
    • We will NOT provide water stations.  Please have each player bring their own water bottle/drink and have their name written on it, if it is reusable.  Do NOT share water bottles!
    • Locker rooms are available for changing/restrooms or team meetings.  They are small locker rooms, so their use is optional.  The school hallway (behind the benches) may be used for stretching/warmup or team meetings.  A coach MUST accompany any players in this hallway!
    • We will attempt to live stream all games for fans wishing to stay home and watch, or to check the schedule of games while outside the gym.  (YouTube search for West Florida Baptist Academy, or go to wfbacademy.org for a link.)

     

    NOTE: We understand that these measures might not be agreeable to every person entering the gym.  However, we want our sons and daughters to have a full season of sports this year and will do anything in our power to mitigate the risk of missing weeks of playing time for a player or an entire team!  Please be considerate to our administration, staff, coaches and volunteers who are trying to make sure these students get the season they deserve!

    Gulf Pointe Latin School

    COVID-19 protocol and response policies for sports games are intended to mitigate, not eliminate, risk. No single action or set of actions will completely eliminate the risk of COVID-19 transmission, but implementation of some coordinated interventions can greatly reduce that risk. It is our desire to help mitigate the risk, while still enjoying the benefits of competitive play.

    RISK MITIGATION- MASKS

    • Wearing of a mask shall be determined by each family and/or individual, this includes players, coaches and spectators.
    • We will not require masks to be worn by players or coaches entering or exiting the building. 

    RISK MITIGATION – PHYSICAL DISTANCING

    • All visiting players and coaches, as well as all spectators will be screened with a few questions and have their temperature taken upon arrival.  Anyone with a temperature of 100.4 or higher will kindly be asked to leave.
    • We will ask spectators to be wise and to seek to physically distance themselves from others outside their family/group while viewing the games.  Seating in the gym should allow for proper spacing between families and groups.

    RISK MITIGATION – SANITATION

    • Bathrooms and other common areas will be disinfected during school and every day after school, so as to be sanitized for each game in the gym.
    • We ask that players wash their hands before exiting the locker room prior to the game, and utilize hand sanitizer periodically throughout the duration of the game. Each visiting team is asked to provide hand sanitizer for their players and coaches on the bench.
    • GPLS will provide hand sanitizer at the entry/exit door.
    • We ask players to not shake hands prior to, during, or after the game, but fist bumps or elbow bumps are permitted.
