A5 Gwinnett has a comprehensive set of policies and practices to help mitigate and prevent the spread of COVID-19. Those policies stem from collective suggestions from the CDC, Georgia Department of Health, and amateur and professional sports programs across the nation. Below is a snapshot of what those look like to help answer some of the questions you might have for the 2020-2021 A5 Gwinnett Season.
- Travel – A5 Gwinnett has taken an effort this year to balance our desire to compete at the highest level in the country on the one hand, and limit travel and costs on the other. We will continue to travel and lodge together from the 14 and older ages, although the majority of our tournaments are drivable or in town. If you commit to play on an A5 Gwinnett team but have extenuating health circumstances or concerns, please notify your head coach and the A5 Gwinnett Leadership will follow up with you on an individual basis to meet your family’s needs.
- Practices – All practices occur at the Suwanee Sports Academy, which has in-depth guidelines and procedures for all participants. The guidelines include but are not limited to signage, liability waivers, temperature checks, daily cleaning and sanitization of all surfaces and equipment, mask protocols for spectators, hand sanitization during activities, and the promotion of social distancing when applicable.
- Resolution – If a player or coach comes down with the COVID-19 virus, they will not be able to return to the gym until after a presumptive 10-day period of quarantine in accordance with the prevailing CDC and State of Georgia guidelines. After the positive case has been discovered, the corresponding team including coaches and players must receive a negative test result prior to their to return to the gym.
All policies and procedures are subject to change based on the prevailing guidelines of the CDC, Georgia Department of Health, and amateur and professional sports programs across the nation.
