At EL1 Sports (EL1 Baseball, Softball University, RISE Football) we are committed to the health and safety of everyone in our programs and facilities. To keep our athletes, coaches and staff as protected against COVID-19 as possible while engaging in athletic endeavors, we continue to monitor and abide by local, state, and federal guidelines.
As of March 4, 2022, almost all jurisdictions in which we operate have eased and/or lifted mask mandates and requirements about vaccination/proof of a recent negative test. We encourage those who wish to wear masks and follow social distancing guidelines to continue to do so, and we will make both masks and hand sanitizer available in our facilities.
In order to keep our staff and clients safe, we will not allow anyone in our facilities if they:
- Show symptoms of COVID-19; or
- Have tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 5 days or are awaiting results of a COVID-19 test due to possible exposure or symptoms and not from routine asymptomatic COVID-19 screening or surveillance testing; or
- Has been told by a public health or medical professional to self-monitor, self-isolate, or self-quarantine because of concerns about COVID-19 infection in the past 5 days.
All people on-site should practice good hygiene including washing their hands frequently and covering their sneezes and coughs. Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds before and after practice, especially after touching shared objects or blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains 60-95% alcohol content. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they are dry. Wash hands with soap and water as soon as possible. Athletes should bring their own water bottles and should not share with others.
RESPONDING TO CASES OR SUSPECTED CASES OF COVID-19
At EL1, we will communicate with our clients (directors, coaches, and parents) about COVID-19 incidents that impact them. This includes any positive COVID-19 tests, exposures, possible exposures, and how we will be addressing them.
If anyone develops symptoms of COVID-19 or was in close contact with a person who is confirmed to have COVID-19 or is suspected to, contact their EL1 Program Manager as soon as possible. The Program Manager will gather information about the incident and work our internal team to determine next steps for all individuals who may be affected. If we communicate quickly and effectively, we can keep everyone safe and ensure excellent training and impactful mentorship.
