Phase I Protocols

Updated: September 3, 2020

Interscholastics Re-Entry Plan (in PDF)

All Phases should include the following screenings:

  • Adults and students are screened daily before the start of workout. Temperature check and questionnaire will be taken. Any yes responses on questionnaire is automatic disqualification as well as having a temperature above 100 F is DQ
  • If a student athlete lives or is in frequent contact with someone who is health compromised (family member who has cancer, COPD, asthma, or other immune-suppressing illness, COVID, etc.), he/she SHOULD NOT be participating in conditioning. We do not want to send them home with a possible exposure or have them bring one to our facility.

Phase 1 Conditioning and Practice only - Limitations on Gatherings:

  • No gathering of more than 10 athletes at a time.
  • Locker or weight rooms should not be utilized during Phase 1. Students should report to workouts in proper gearand immediately return home to shower at end of the workout. 
  • Workouts should be conducted in “pods” of students with the same 10 students always working out   This ensures more limited exposure if someone develops an infection. 
  • There must always be a minimum distance of 6 feet between everyone.
    • Make and post schedule so that each group has specific time. This will reduce overlap of students hanging around, or coaches going over their allotted time. Should have 15-30 min between groups to do any cleaning. 
    • Groups of less than 10; although recommendation is 1 person per 100 square feet. Do not place same positions together because if one in group is infectious, all will be out temporarily. Groups cannot change and people cannot move groups. Place siblings or those who live together in same group.
    • No drinking fountains. Personal water containers that come filled.
    • Wear masks/face-coverings
    • No locker rooms- open only bathrooms but monitor that students using restrooms use social distancing and limit number of students entering at once; One person at a time.
    • Equipment is cleaned after each person is finished with use.
    • No gym use until sanitization can be accomplished between groups. Outside is better for conditioning but use spacing.
