OSA PELLA LEAGUE COVID-19 GUIDELINES
–OSA Staff: OSA staff goes through a mandatory COVID-19 prescreening prior to each of their shifts. They are required to wear masks and gloves at all times.
-Player/Spectator Screening: We ask that all those entering our facilities do their own screening at home and anyone showing signs or symptoms of COVID-19 must not enter OSA facilities. For detailed guidance on home screening, go to www.cdc.gov/screening.
-Masks: ALL who enter all game facilities MUST wear a mask. If you do not have one, you will not be allowed in. This includes all players, coaches, referees, and spectators. Coaches and Spectators must wear masks AT ALL TIMES. Players and referees may remove their masks ONLY when they are on the court and must wear masks on the bench and at all other times. As a result of our enforcing face coverings at all times, NO FOOD OR DRINK will be allowed into the gym, with the exception of player water bottles. Those who do not comply will be removed from the facility without any warning.
–Social Distancing: All participants must practice the recommended 6 feet of social distancing between families in all areas of the facility.
–Pre-Game / Transition from Game to Game: We understand that the timing of this can be somewhat challenging, and we ask for your patience with this process. Participants should not show up to their venue until 15 minutes prior to their game. In the event you arrive early, participants must wait in the commons area while socially distancing and wearing masks until the gym doors open. Teams will not be allowed to take the court until the conclusion of the previous game, and until the player benches have been vacated and sanitized. It is the coaches responsibility to ensure this process is strictly adhered to.
–Post-Game: There will be no handshake lines after the game, and post-game huddles will not be allowed. Players, coaches and spectators must exit the facility immediately following their game. Coaches must be sure all trash is cleaned up and must double check bench areas for any and all belongings left behind. All items left behind will be thrown away immediately. Participants must maintain social distancing while exiting the courts.
—Sanitation Procedures: High touch point areas will be sanitized after every game.–Water Fountains: The water fountains will be turned off. Please make sure that your athlete brings their own personalized water bottle, as the filling stations are open.
–Basketballs: One Coach per team will be allowed to bring three basketballs in a secured net or bag. Basketballs may be used from the start of warm-ups until the start of the game and then throughout half time. Absolutely no other basketballs will be allowed in the facility and violators will be required to take their ball back to their car. Home team will provide the game ball, and we will have sanitization materials available for coaches to sanitize the game ball before and after the game.
