As we flip the calendar from May to June, I wanted to reach out to provide some information about the availability of our facility and summer protocols for our activities. Please read the following, look at the attached documents, and let me know if you have any questions.
Indoor Facilities—Teams may now use the indoor facilities. The attached protocols must be followed. Masks will be required for both coaches and student-athletes when not engaged in high intensity aerobic activity.
Gym Usage—We are still allowing individuals and family units to use our fieldhouse courts for workouts. Courts 2, 3, and 4 are available during summer office hours (Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday 9:00am-3:00pm). Instead of signing up online, Kris Gustin the date and time you would like to use the facility and he will confirm its availability. Please remember the following protocols for gym usage; failure to abide can result in the revocation of your ability to use the gym:
o Usage is limited to family units.
o Enter through the north/commons/main door.
o Sign in and sign out in the school office.
o Bring your own equipment.
o Masks are encouraged.
o Locker rooms are not available. Please come dressed ready for your activity.
o If you use rest rooms, please use the rest rooms between the commons and the competition gym.
o In order to keep our facility safe and clean, please limit your presence in the building to the court you have reserved.
Weight Room— We are planning to open our weight room. Coaches may take their student-athletes into the weight room with the following additional guidelines:
o No more than ten people can be in the weight room at one time—the coach/coaches count in that ten.
o Masks are required to be worn by everyone in the weight room.
o Equipment should be wiped down prior to the first use of the morning and after each use. This includes bars, weights, dumbbells, benches and machines.
§ We are asking that each student-athlete brings sanitizing wipes for their personal use. We understand that they are in short supply, but please work to get wipes for your son or daughter should they desire to use the weight room.
Summer Protocols—This form is attached. Many of our coaches are eager to begin working with our student-athletes. In order to allow them to do so safely, we have developed the attached protocols for the summer of 2020. These will go into effect on June 1 for all in-person workouts. These protocols do not apply to virtual workouts provided by coaches. Please look these over and reach out to either myself or your head coach if you have questions.
o Students will be required to wear masks and bring their own water bottles. Masks will make them hot and likely increase their intake of water. At this time, we are not allowing the filling of water containers. Please make sure you plan accordingly with your sons and daughters should they plan to participate.
· Health Screening Form—This form is attached. This will need to be completed, signed and submitted to coaches prior to being allowed to participate in group workouts. You will need this form for EACH time you work out in-person with a group, not just once for the summer. This form is NOT needed to use the fieldhouse as an individual or a family unit. This form is also available on the forms page on the Mayer Lutheran website.
We fully expect things to change over the course of the summer. As these protocols change, they will be updated and the changes will be communicated via email.
