NEW COVID PROTOCOL HIGHLIGHTS

  1. SOPA requires that All Participants in our Fall 2021 Bocce program must complete this online waiver form. If the participant is not able to complete the form on the computer, then they should contact the Bocce Covid-19 Coordinator, Becky by phone (717-873-0175). Waiver forms must be submitted before you can attend.
  2. Here’s some hints to simplify completion of the waiver form:
    • The Bocce Covid Coordinator is Rebecca Rinehart
    • The location for Bocce practice is York Township Park, Spry, PA
  3. Did you notice we said all “Participants” must complete waiver forms? A participant is an athlete, coach, or Volunteer who plans to interact with athletes. Parents/Caregivers who have not completed waivers, will be considered “Spectators” and must not interact with other athletes. Only “Participants” will be able to sit court-side. Spectators will need to sit further off court – perhaps even in the pavilion if available, or in their cars, or up the hill a bit further.
  4. The level of protocols may need to be increased if community spread rate increases. Right now, unvaccinated participants must wear a mask except when actively engaged in sports training and competition. Everyone is encouraged to wear masks and practice social distancing.
  5. All “Participants” will be screened at a common entry-point to each training session.
  6. All attendees need to bring their own water bottles and other personal protective equipment like masks.
  7. Hand sanitizer will be available, and athletes will be encouraged to use it before and after play.
  8. Athletes will adhere to all other protocols outlined in the waiver form.
