!!!CLUB ANNOUCEMENTS!!!

The Defender family has been monitoring the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) situation closely, keeping the health of all parties affiliated with our events as the top priority.
 
We have had some great small group trainings these past couple of weeks, with some great turn outs. And now the Governor has opened the state back up, but we will continue to take baby steps. Currently, events/tournaments are going to take place starting the weekend ending June 13th.  Yet we will NOT have participate that weekend in any tournaments. We plan on the weekend of June 20th in a 1 day tournament to see how things go. We will monitor how the tournaments are run and will make a plan of action for future tournaments based on that. We will start modified practices starting Monday 6/8/2020 at RRSC and will lead into full practices base on how things go later in the week. Other practice locations will very by teams and details will follow at a later date. We will also continue to assess the situation with the information provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Our staff is aware of the threat and will continue to follow the counsel of the CDC as part of our commitment to serving you. We will update everyone ASAP when we hear back from Tournement Directors, venues, or if we hear from CDC before we announce any changes in tournament schedules.
 
First, we are practicing the primary advice from the CDC based on the “common-sense” approach to infection-control. This includes face masks, proper cough etiquette, frequent hand washing, use of hand sanitizers and limiting face touching. We also are taking temperatures via touchless thermometers before each practice. Parents are not allowed in the gym when we start full practices until further notice.
 
Second, we are instructing our staff to exercise increased awareness and attention-to-detail in sanitizing work areas during practices.  Please communicate to your players, coaches, family, etc. to be mindful of common public points of contact and to personally follow the CDC hygiene guidelines.
 
CDC advice includes:
 
Avoid close contact with anyone who is sick
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash
Wash hands frequently with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds (as long as it takes to sing Happy Birthday twice), especially after using the restroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing
Regularly use hand-sanitizer that contains at least 78% alcohol
Regularly clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces
Here are some additional suggestions from our team and the steps that our staff will take during the season:
 
Please encourage your players to wash their hands after the conclusion of the competition.
It is best for each player to have their own personal source of hydration (water bottle, Gatorade, etc.).  We recommend that players refrain from sharing with teammates
Avoid using public water fountains
Hand sanitizer will be provided at all stations in all venues
We will do our best to sanitize all basketballs between games and at half time. 
We will require the facility to throw away all water bottles left in the building after games. 
We will continue to monitor national, regional, and local government alerts and information.
Should you experience symptoms, test positive for Coronavirus, or have a need to quarantine on-site, we respectfully ask that you notify our staff immediately during the course of the event/practices/game/etc...
 
This notice serves as an advisory with guidelines to follow in order to prevent the spread of disease.
