Please see below for the Covid-19 Guidelines. We will continue to make updates to this document as the guidelines evolve. It is imperative that we follow the guidelines set forth in order to allow the kids to play.
2020-2021 COVID-19 Guidelines
To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, we are required to follow the guidelines set out by Community Education, which is in accordance with the MN Dept of Health. These guidelines could change as the COVID-19 situation changes throughout the season. It is imperative that all players, coaches, families, etc. follow these guidelines or we could lose our privilege to use the facilities.
Covid Exposure Communication
Mask Exception Process:
The process to follow if your child has a medical condition that exempts them from wearing a mask during practice or game play is:
Note: This exception applies to all District 833 gyms. If games are being played in another location outside of District 833, players will need to follow the guidelines of the host site.
MDH Mask Requirement Information:
Face coverings must be worn in accordance with MDH guidance and Executive Order 20-81.
▪ Types of face coverings can include a cloth mask, a neck gaiter, a scarf, a bandanna, or a religious face covering. CDC recommends using two layers of fabric when making a cloth face covering. Face coverings that are made of thinner single-layer fabric such as certain types of masks, scarves, neck gaiters, or bandannas may not be as effective for blocking droplets that come out when speaking, coughing, or sneezing and should not be used unless there are no alternatives.
▪ A face covering must cover the nose and mouth completely. The covering should not be overly tight or restrictive and should feel comfortable to wear.
▪ Any masks that incorporate a valve that is designed to facilitate easy exhaling, mesh masks, or masks with openings, holes, visible gaps in the design or material, or vents are not sufficient face coverings because they allow droplets to be released from the mask.
MYAS Return to Play Guidelines:
In the event that a portion of the season is cancelled or suspended, WAA will review the financials at the conclusion of the season and determine if there will be refunds processed based on registration fees collected vs the costs incurred. The review will be done at each program level. WAA is a not for profit organization, which utilizes player registration fees and tournament profits to cover all expenses related to operating our programs. These expenses include items such as renting gym space, paying referees, uniforms, tournaments, insurance, equipment, administration costs, etc…
We would like to thank the many volunteers who make WAA Basketball a great experience for the players and families!
