Safety Protocols

Although things will look much different, we are extremely excited to be back to playing basketball! All CDC and local guidelines will be followed and we are adding additional layers of safety protocols to ensure the utmost safety of our players, coaches and families. Below are the guidelines for our practices. For tournaments, we ask that you take the same precautions. You will receive the tournaments’ specific guidelines 3-5 days before the first tournament. 

Before Practices and Games

  1. We ask that you take your child’s temperature and check them for the common symptoms associated with the COVID-19 before all practices and games. You can find more information regarding symptoms at:

  2. Each player's temperature will be taken at check-in by the West Warwick Civic Center staff. 

  3. For all practices and games, players must wear masks into the practice/game facility. 

  4. Parents will not be allowed in the gym for practice.

  5. Players must maintain social distancing when entering the gym. 

  6. Doors will be propped open when possible to avoid contact with high contact areas. 


During/After Practices and Games

  1. Players are NOT allowed to bring basketballs to practices or games. Coaches will have basketballs and they will disinfect the balls before and after practice. 

  2. When players begin practice, coaches will have hand sanitizer that they will give to the players. They will do this at the end of practice as well. 
  3. Players should bring their own water bottles and no sharing is allowed. We recommend that players bring a water bottle with their name clearly visible on the bottle and do not use the water fountains at the facilities.

  4. Coaches will be wearing masks as much as possible during practice, but may need to remove them to provide direct instruction. When doing so, they will maintain a distance of 10 feet. When talking to the players, players will remain socially distant at a minimum of 6 feet apart. 

  5. 10 doors will be open and 2 giant fans will be operating so that air is constantly circulating during the practices.

  6. We will be sending teams out of the gym one at a time and then bring in the next teams for practice.
