• Only athletes in the current session will be allowed in the facility until further notice. Athletes should wait inside their car and avoid gathering outside of CP3BA until a staff member has signaled they may line up.

• When a new session is about to begin a staff member will signal to athletes that they may form a line utilizing social distancing designated by markings on the ground. CP3BA will also have a drop off lane where we will screen athletes in their parents vehicle and once they are cleared they can enter the building.

• All athletes will be properly health screened, if negative they may enter the facility

• Athletes will immediately sanitize their hands when they enter the facility

Daily Procedures for Entering CP3BA Facility and Participation


• Athletes may only bring a change of shoes, a towel, a water bottle, and their own ball into the facility until further notice

• The water fountain may be used to fill bottles, but no drinking directly, therefore all athletes should bring a water bottle


• Athletes will set their limited items on a designated space on the bleachers that is properly distanced

• Athletes will go to the basketball bin where they will be handed a sanitized basketball by a staff member if they do not have their own ball, this will be their ball for the duration of the class until phases allow equipment sharing

• Athletes will proceed to their assigned basket, with the assigned developer where they will stay for their full class, properly socially distant. This will be the athletes assigned goal and group for the duration of the session.

• If an athlete needs to use the restroom, they will enter a socially distanced que, only one person will be allowed in each restroom at a time

• If an athlete needs to fill up their bottle from the water fountain, they will enter a socially distant que, only one person will be allowed to use the water fountains at a time

• At the end of each class athletes will place their basketball in a designated “dirty” bin, basketballs will be sanitized individually before they are returned to a clean bin

• Athletes will return to their assigned space on the bleachers and will be dismissed to exit the facility while maintaining social distancing. Athletes will enter from the front door and exit via the door on the side of the building to avoid contact with new athletes entering the gym.

• Athletes will be directed to sanitize their hands as they exit. The facility will be entirely cleared of athletes before the next group will be allowed to enter

• Players and staff members will not make contact with each other, including handshakes or high fives

• Athletes will be asked to participate in the same group each week to minimize their exposure and allow for limited disruption to the entire program if there is a positive case, making contact tracing as easy as possible *Similar procedures will be followed for all camps, including assigned basketballs and designated spaces, as well as athletes will only interact with others that are in their group (max of 10 in each)

• Courts will be broken up into halves with one developer and 10 athletes per court, their will be no changing courts or developers during a session. 

Response to Positive Covid-19 Symptoms on Screening

 If an athlete/coach/official has positive finding on their COVID-19 screening they will be sent home immediately. If their parents are not present they will be escorted to a designated isolation room or area away from others and will wear a mask/face covering. They will then be directed to contact their primary care pediatrician, family practice, or internal medicine clinician for evaluation and potential COVID-19 testing. The individual will not be allowed back until they have documentation demonstrating the SARS-CoV-2 test was negative or a note from their healthcare provider indicating they do not need to be tested and their symptoms are not due to COVID-19. Individuals Who Should Consider Delaying Their Participation in Sports Personally, or living with someone effected:

• Diabetes

• Chronic Lung Disease including Asthma

• Severe obesity (Body Mass Index >40)

• Chronic kidney disease

• Heart conditions

• Immunocompromised (e.g. any transplant recipient, needing immunosuppressant medications (e.g. steroids, biologics, etc.), patients receiving chemotherapy, etc.)

• Age greater than 65 years

Positive COVID 19 Case

Forsyth County Health Department will be notified

• All close contacts and their contact information will be given to the health department. This will ensure timely and efficient contact tracing which is necessary to mitigate the spread of disease

• If an athlete who was not wearing a mask is confirmed to have COVID-19, the following will occur:

• All participants that have practiced or competed with this individual up to 48 hours prior to symptom onset will be excluded from practice for 14 days (or until a negative test or doctors note allowing return to play is delivered). Exception could be made if all activities were done practicing appropriate social distancing. If a coach is positive and was wearing a mask/face covering potentially none of her/his contacts will have to be excluded. In some cases, a mask/face covering may not be considered protective depending on the type ofexposure.

• Coaches and staff in contact with the infected individual who were properly wearing a mask will likely not have to be excluded. In some cases, a mask may not be considered protective depending on the type of exposure

• We will consult physicians and the County Health Department on who should be excluded from play

• Athletes/coaches must meet all the following criteria to return to sports

• No fever (>100.4) for 72 hours without fever reducing medications
