Below are precautions Basics will implement as we get back in the gym with your kids.

  • Doors will be locked at all times allowing for no-one passing each other between sessions.  This will also eliminate any waiting or congregation in the hallways or waiting areas prior to and during play. 
  • Kids bring their OWN BASKETBALLS and hand sanitizer
  • Parents and-or spectators are limited to 1 per player in the gym during training.  The executive order (SEE HERE) permits 2 but out of an abundance of caution and due in large part to the small size of our gyms, Basics will limit that to 1 spectator per player.  
  • See Section 7 below of the Executive order that is most applicable. 
  • EVERYONE in the gym MUST A WEAR FACIAL COVERING. (players, spectators, coaches)   Players and spectators will NOT be permitted to attend without one.  
  • All ball handling training will go EAST-WEST in the gyms, permitting double the space between training lines.
  • When we scrimmage, that ball will be thoroughly cleaned.
  • Kids not in the scrimmage will sit on opposite sides of the gym
  • ALL KIDS MUST WASH THEIR HANDS prior to play beginning
  • NO KID with a cough or sickness permitted in the gym.
