NC Coastal Volleyball Club COVID-19 Safety Protocols and Return to Play Guidelines

 

First, we hope that you and your loved ones are safe and well. Like you, we are looking forward to getting back to enjoying time together in the gym.

In the event that all governing authorities and all parties involved decide that returning to play indoor volleyball can safely proceed, we will be implementing the following safety guidelines. Please note that these guidelines will be updated regularly as we navigate this ever-changing landscape and new or additional guidelines are published by the CDC, USA Volleyball and the State of NC.

 

Before Entering The Gym

  • All participants and coaches should be symptom free for at least 21 days prior to entering our gym. If anyone in your household has shown symptoms over the past 21 days, please stay home.
  • If you experience any COVID-19 symptoms or do not feel well during activities in our gym, please report this to your legal guardian and arrange to return home immediately. If you feel sick while at home, please stay home.
  • Be aware of any potential contacts with affected individuals, and stay home if participants have had any known contact with infected persons within the last 21 days.
  • We ask that only parents transporting players enter or remain in the gym; no other spectators will be permitted in the gym at any time.

 

Entering/Departing The Gym

  • All persons entering the gym must check in with club staff on duty and be screened. The screening process will include: a temperature check with a non-contact infrared thermometer (any person registering a temperature of 100.4 F or higher in two out of three readings, will be asked to return home and not admitted to the gym that day);   2. questions about personal symptoms and/or recent contact with persons known to have symptoms or a diagnosis of COVID-19;  3. confirmation on our check-in sheet that the players & adults requesting entry have pre-registered no later than the day before the session (for contact tracing records).
  • All coaches and athletes should wear face masks when entering/departing the gym each day.
  • Please disinfect your phone before arriving at the gym each day.
  • We ask that all players and coaches wash and sanitize their hands often (do not gather in large groups during hand washing).
  • There will be hand sanitizer available in the facility, but we are recommending that all athletes bring their own personal bottle of hand sanitizer.

 

During Activity

  • No sharing water bottles, towels, clothing, knee pads, whistles, giving high fives, huddles, and/or physical contact.
  • Bring your own water and bring enough – there will not be water available for players to refill their bottles
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, mouth, and face.
  • Please cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue or your shirt.
  • Our coaches will use hand whistles if they need to be used as opposed to regular whistles.
  • NC Coastal coaches will wear masks during activity. Players are not required to wear masks during on-court play, but may do so if they choose to.  
  • All volleyballs will be sanitized after each two hour group session or one hour lesson. Players should only touch and use the volleyballs on the court they are playing on and not touch or take balls from other carts or courts. If you are not sure which balls are available for you to use, ask the NC Coastal staff
  • Water breaks should be taken observing the social distancing guidelines of 6 feet apart from other persons on the court.

 

Additional Precautions and Resources

  • When your session is over, please gather your belongings and leave the facility immediately. Adults staying in the facility should assist with encouraging players to move quickly to leave once volleyball activity has ceased.
  • If you are staying for the next session, you must leave the court, inform the staff member on duty that you are checking in for the next session (you do not have to be re-screened), and wash your hands with soap and water before returning to the court for the next session.
  • Please read the CDC Guidance for group gatherings https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/large-events/index.html
