COVID-19 Procedures

The novel coronavirus, COVID-19, has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization. COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is believed to spread mainly from person-to-person contact, including individuals without disease symptoms. As a result, federal, state, and local governments and federal and state health agencies recommend social distancing and have, in many locations, prohibited or limited the congregation of groups of people.

The health and well-being of our staff and athletes remains our top priority. In order to minimize the risk of COVID-19 entering our environment and spreading amongst our community, we will only allow staff assigned to work and athletes scheduled to participate to be in our gym. Parents wishing to remain on site can use outdoor common areas or the parking lot to wait for their athlete(s). Athletes waiting to attend a session will need to wait outside while maintaining social distance from others.

Furthermore, all athletes and spectators in sponsored activities at Vision Volleyball Club must agree to and abide by the following:

PROCEDURE for Athletes, Coaches, Staff, and Spectators:

Eligibility for attendance: Be symptom free for at least 14 days prior to any activity. Stay home if you are sick or do not feel well. Be aware of and disclose any potential contacts with affected individuals. Keep a list of people you have been in contact with each day.

Please be aware that if at any point you or someone who you have been in contact with becomes sick, you will be asked to self quarantine for 14 days.

Athletes: Every Athlete will be required to properly disinfect their hands before starting each training. Athletes will only be allowed to enter the facility at most 10 minutes prior to their session. After completing and passing the proper screening measures athletes will be allowed to enter the facility. Once the session ends, Athletes will be picked up at the back of the facility. No waiting will be allowed in the facility. 

Extensive Screening Measures: Athletes, Coaches, and Staff will have their temperatures screened prior to entering the facility. Each Athlete will have their temperature checked by a staff member. If the temperature is 99.9 degrees or below, they will be allowed inside the facility. 

Spectators: To limit the number of people in the facility, spectators are not allowed to enter the facility.  Once a session ends, Athletes will be picked up at the back of the facility; no waiting will be allowed in the facility. The Club encourages parents to wait in their cars but if they must get out, practice safe social distancing and remain 6 feet away from non-family members.  When local and state restrictions are lifted to allow spectators, they must wear face coverings to enter the facility. 

Safety Equipment: It is at the discretion of the athlete to wear some type of face-covering  

Bathrooms: Only one person, whether Athlete, Coach, or Staff, are allowed in the bathroom at once.

Cleaning:  Coaches and Staff members will disinfect any  touch points upon arrival and exit of their shift. They will also disinfect touch points as needed every hour or sooner if needed. They will use hand sanitizer after working with each customer to help eliminate cross contamination between customers.

Hand sanitizer will be provided and is required at each court for additional safety measures. Coaches and Staff will clean courts with a bleach solution once a day. All equipment including volleyballs used during each training will be cleaned and stored to dry. Volleyballs will be divided in two groups and rotated between each scheduled training session. Restrooms and all contact points will be cleaned in between every training session or sooner if needed while the facility is limited to Coaches and Staff only.
