KIDSPORTS Basketball Families,

KS is excited to announce that we will begin the 2022 youth basketball season this weekend, Jan. 15-16, with the 5th-8th grade jamboree.

As COVID 19 begins to circulate throughout the community in exponentially increased rates, our number one goal is the safety of our participants, coaches, and families.

The following are the health safety protocols for the KS youth basketball season:

MASKING COMPLIANCE:

  • ALL PARTICIPANTS will be required to wear masks AT ALL TIMES during practices and games
  • ALL COACHES will be required to wear masks AT ALL TIMES during practices and games
  • ALL SPECTATORS age 5 and over will be required to wear masks AT ALL TIMES during practices and games.
  • ALL OFFICIALS will be required to wear masks AT ALL TIMES

SPECTATORS: Due to the number of games at each venue, spectator numbers will be limited to provide for proper physical spacing:

  • SPECTATORS will be limited to 2 spectators for each registered participant (EXCEPT, only 1 spectator allowed for the jamboree Jan. 15-16)
  • PLEASE NOTE: FOR the 5th – 8th GRADE JAMBOREE Jan. 15-16, ONLY 1 SPECTATOR for each registered participant
  • Siblings 11 and under don’t count as the 2 but are required to wear masks and be under close supervision of accompanying adults

FOOD & DRINK :

  • No Food or Drinks will be permitted in the gyms other than water for participants

HAND SANITIZATION:

  • Hand sanitization will be provided upon entry in to the gyms

With these new protocols, it is our goal to prioritize the health and safety of our participants, families, staff, and officials while attempting to preserve the 2022 KS basketball season.

We encourage families to discuss the risk and individual choices to remain safe and the importance of observing all health and safety protocols, such as proper use of masks.

Even with protocols in place, families need to be aware that participating in extracurricular activities increases the risk that a possible exposure could result in participants needing to quarantine.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we implement these COVID related protocols. We will continue to monitor pandemic conditions and revisit protocols as they remain subject to change due to the uncertainty of the continually changing COVID conditions.
