COVID-19 Protocols

By Sherry Rivers, 10/09/21, 8:30AM EDT


Attention Players, Families, and Coaches

The COVID-19 protocols for players, coaches and spectators is constantly evolving. We are truly thankful for the patience, support and kindness that our Spirits families have given to the executive and our coaches. 

The most up-to-date COVID-19 protocols are as follows:

  • Hastings Prince Edward Public Health has issued a Letter of Instruction requiring proof of vaccination (Pdf) for all coaches, officials, and volunteers aged 12 and older associated with indoor organized sports.

  • Players aged 12 to 17 do not need to show proof of vaccination if they are entering a sports facility for the sole purpose of practicing their sport. 

  • Anyone other than a player involved in youth sport must show proof of double vaccination to enter any of our Spirits facilities.

  • Players must declare they are clear of any and all COVID-19 symptoms before entering facilities. 

  • Parents must complete contact tracing forms before entering any of our community facilities. 

  • Masks are required at all times for parents as well as players entering and exiting facilities. Players must wear their masks at all times except when involved in active play. 

In these ever-changing times, the protocols and mandates set by Hastings Prince Edward Public Health, Ontario Basketball Association, and the province of Ontario can, and assumedly, will change.

We will do our best to communicate changes as quickly as possible on our website, social media channels, and through our coaches.
