What to Expect at Tryouts

  • Controlled one-way entries and exits with Hand Sanitization stations at entrance and exit to the building.  Check-in booth/table at entry to facility.

  • Athletes are to arrive no sooner than 15 minutes prior to their provided start time.  While waiting outside, physical distancing must be followed.   

  • Please note - no parents will be allowed into the facility.

  • Contact Tracing Sign-in - Each athlete will be subject to a COVID-19 health questionnaire before they enter the building. This will be administered verbally and documented on a tracking sheet.  Please note that if the answer to any of the questions is ‘yes’, the athlete cannot be allowed into the facility.  (please do not attend if showing signs of any Covid-19 symptoms).  For a copy of the questionnaire, please click here.

  • Athletes must come ready – water bottle, court shoes, gym clothing (no change rooms are provided) – and make every attempt to minimize the amount of personal items.  Athletes should consider bringing enough water in the case that taps/water filling stations are not available.
