Safety Protocols

We are extremely excited to be back playing basketball this spring! 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 and will be administered hand sanitizer at check-in by the West Warwick Civic Center or RI Magic staff. 

  3. For all practices, players must wear masks the entire time they are in the facility. Players may remove masks for water breaks and those should occur socially distant from other teammates.  

  4. Parents will not be allowed in the gym for practices for any reason including restroom use. Parents are allowed inside the gym for player check-in and to meet with the director.

  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 will have hand sanitizer available during all practices. 

  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 at all times. When talking to the players, players will remain socially distant at a minimum of 6 feet apart.  They will also be using hand whistles.  

  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.
