Como Summer Workout Waiver Form
This waiver form must be completed by all athletes and parents/guardians prior to their participation in summer workouts: outdoors and indoors.
Based on MDH and CDC and NFHS recommendations, we have established some guidelines on the use of our facilities under the current STAY SAFE MINNESOTA ORDERS. As always, please follow the recommended preventative measures in all instances: Wash hands often: Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after you have been in a public place or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.Cover coughs and sneezes: If you are in a private setting and do not have your cloth face covering on, remember to always cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. If a tissue is not available, use the inside of your elbow. Throw used tissues in the trash, and immediately wash your hands.Stay home when sick: The best way to prevent the spread of illness is to avoid exposing others and being exposed to the virus.Limit gatherings to 10 people or fewer: No more than 10 people should congregate in a public space.Practice Social Distancing: Stay at least 6 feet away from anyone who is not part of your household.Continue to wear a facemask while in public: If a mask is not available, avoid touching your face as much as possible.Clean and disinfect: Clean AND disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, sinks, etc.Pre-Workout Screening:All coaches and students will be screened for signs, symptoms and exposure to COVID-19 prior to a workout.Attendance will be taken daily.Responses to screening questions for each person will be recorded and stored so that there is a record of everyone present in case a student develops COVID-19. Any person with positive symptoms reported will not be allowed to take part in workouts and should contact his or her primary care provider or other appropriate health-care professional.Vulnerable individuals will not oversee or participate in any workouts. Facilities Cleaning:Adequate cleaning schedules have been created and implemented for all athletic facilities to mitigate any communicable diseases.Prior to an individual or groups of individuals entering a facility, hard surfaces within that facility will be wiped down and sanitized (chairs, furniture in meeting rooms, locker rooms, weight room equipment, bathrooms, athletic training room tables, etc.)Individuals must wash their hands for a minimum of 20 seconds with warm water and soap before touching any surfaces or participating in workouts.Hand sanitizer will be plentiful and available to individuals as they transfer from place to place.Weight equipment must be wiped down thoroughly before and after an individual’s use of equipment.Appropriate clothing/shoes should be worn at all times in the weight room to minimize sweat from transmitting onto equipment/surfaces.Any equipment such as weight benches, athletic pads, etc. having holes with exposed foam should be covered.Students must be encouraged to shower and wash their workout clothing immediately upon returning to home.Limitations on Gatherings:No gatherings of more than 10 people at a time (inside or outside).Locker rooms will not be utilized Students should report to workouts in proper gear and immediately return home to shower at the end of the workout.Workouts will be conducted in “pods” of students with the same 5-10 students always working out together. Smaller pods can be utilized for weight training. This ensures more limited exposure if someone develops an infection.There must be a minimum distance of 6 feet between each individual at all times. If this is not possible indoors, then the maximum number of individuals in the room must be decreased until proper social distancing can occur.· Physical Activity and Athletic EquipmentThere will be no shared athletic equipment (towels, clothing, shoes, or sports specific equipment) between students.Students must wear their own appropriate workout clothing (do not share clothing) individual clothing/towels should be washed and cleaned after every workout.All athletic equipment, including balls, will be cleaned after each use and prior to the next workout.Individual drills requiring the use of athletic equipment are permissible, but the equipment must be cleaned prior to use by the next individual.Resistance training will be emphasized as body weight, sub-maximal lifts and use of resistance bands.Free weight exercises that require a spotter cannot be conducted honoring social distancing norms.
