2021-2022 Sports Safety Procedures

At the YMCA of Greensboro, the health and safety of our program participants, members and staff is our top priority. We will implement COVID-19 transmission prevention protocols based on guidelines from national, state and local health officials, including those from the NCDHHS, the CDC and local health departments.

1. Players and coaches will sanitize their hands (using soap and water or hand sanitizer) upon arrival, during water breaks and after games. A staff member will be checking on participants throughout the activity to ensure the proper use of hand sanitizer. Hand sanitizers used will contain at least 60% alcohol.

2. For sports that take place indoors, coaches and players ages 5 and up must wear a mask.

3. If a player or coach has been exposed to or diagnosed with COVID-19, they must quarantine for 14 days and follow the NCDHHS’s guidelines.

4. If a player or coach experiences symptoms of COVID-19, they must remain home until they receive a negative test result.

5. Players and coaches must bring their own labeled water bottles.

6. Storage areas for players’ personal equipment will be marked. All shared equipment will be cleaned and disinfected between uses and at the end of each session.

7. Markings on the field will designate where spectators may sit. All spectators should practice social distancing and bring their own chairs.
