KYSA Parent / Guardian Covid-19 Symptom Monitoring & Safety Protocols Agreement
Prior to bringing my player to each practice and game during the Spring 2021 Season, I will confirm that
If I am not able to confirm any one of the above points prior to a practice or game, I will not bring my player to that practice or game.
In addition, if my player becomes sick with Covid-19 or needs to quarantine due to Covid-19 exposure or for some other reason, I will contact their coach and KYSA so that the team and club may initiate quarantine measures if and as needed.
If I am a coach or an assistant coach for my player’s team, I will also apply all of the above screening protocols to myself prior to attending each practice and game during the Spring 2021 Season.
I agree also to follow current / ongoing Covid-19 safety protocols (such as mask wearing for players, coaches, spectators, and referees—and social distancing while spectating) throughout the season, as applicable.** Note: We will be following Federal, State, and EPYSA Covid-19 safety protocols, which are subject to change. Any changes in Covid-19 safety protocols that emerge during the season will be communicated to coaches and to parents & guardians—and will be updated on our website and Facebook page.
**As noted by EPYSA, “Masks must be worn by coaches, spectators, referees, and players. The only scenario [in which] a mask can be removed by a player or referee is if the individual meets the exception to the [PA Department of Health] Face Mask Order. Section 3 of the Order provides an exception that allows an individual to remove their mask if wearing a face covering would either cause a medical condition, or exacerbate an existing one, including respiratory issues that impede breathing, a mental health condition or a disability. All alternatives should be exhausted before an individual is exempted. Proof of a condition or disability is not required. The Department of Health asks that everyone makes best efforts to wear face coverings during athletic activities.” https://www.epysa.org/covid-19-faqs/
Parents / Guardians requiring an exemption from the PA Face Mask Order for their player should sign this agreement and contact Tom Hamill at firstname.lastname@example.org regarding the exemption.
Spring 2021 registration is now closed. We are taking registrations based on availability on teams. If you still need to register please contact the Registrar at email@example.com to see if there is a spot available.
