League Update 6/3/20

 

 

In-car Spectator Area

Reopening Plan


Below are guidelines for WCAA basketball games, events and practices.

The continued health and safety of our players, coaches, directors, staff, umpires, vendors, and park personnel is extremely important to us.

With that said, the integrity of the game is important, too. The game on the court will be played as normal. Players and coaches should practice physical distancing at all times. No in-close team huddle/meetings during game breaks. Obviously, physical distancing will not always apply to players on the court.

We can play and enjoy the game while maintaining social distancing. However, we need everyone's cooperation to make this happen.

Also note that these guidelines are subject to change at any time. City, local, state, and federal guidelines may supersede these guidelines

GUIDELINES, PROCEDURES AND RECOMMENDATIONS

  • No spectator’s courtside. Parents and spectators are welcome to watch from their cars or simply pick-up and drop off. ***We may consider lifting this restriction if the situation regarding COVID-19 improves through the season and we believe we can have proper social distancing according to the guideline. set forth by the CDC.
  • Practices will be limited to (1) a week to avoid overcrowding on practice nights. No interactions team to team.

New Behavioral Policy

.

New Behavioral Policy for Players, Coaches, and Spectators
Starting this season any actions or outburst, viewed or perceived to be anything less than good sportsmanship will result in an “Official Warning”. This warning will be announced, documented on the score sheet, and any infringement thereafter will result in a technical foul. A combination of an Official Warning and a technical foul received in a single game, by a single participant will result in an ejection in accordance with the code of conduct agreed upon during registration. Official Warnings will not result in Free Throws or loss of possession. This applies to players, coaches, and spectators alike. Traditional Technical fouls will still be in effect and handled as they always have been.
