Q. My child is involved in soccer at BASC and was recently exposed to a person who had a positive COVID-19 test. What should I do?
Q. My child is involved in soccer at BASC and recently received a positive COVID-19 test. What should I do?
A. Per the CDC guidelines applicable, you should self-quarantine for 14 days. Do not return to any BASC event, training, match, or other, until you have received two negative COVID-19 tests taken at least 24 hours apart
Q. Will masks be required of players, coaches, spectators, or officials?
A. At this time, there is no mandate made by the City of Broken Arrow which requires coaches, players, spectators, or officials to wear a mask. However, it is suggested that CDC guidelines for social distancing be adhered to.
Q. Will social distancing or mask wearing be enforced by BASC?
A. No. All non-player participants are encouraged to wear a mask and social distance, but enforcement is not practical as has been demonstrated by recent government mask mandates
Q. Will facilities at Indian Springs be sanitized regularly?
A. Yes. Touchpoints and community areas will be sanitized on a regular basis whenever play is at the complex.
Q. Are the CDC’s definitions of “close contact” (found here) met by a player’s participation in a soccer match?
A. Yes. The potential to meet more than one of these criteria exists. Proximity of players to one another on the bench, contact during the run of play, and unsanctioned socialization of players before and after a match constitutes a risk which must be managed.
Q. If I register my player, and then the season is cancelled again, will I receive a refund?
A. Yes. The refund amount will be contingent on when the season was cancelled were that to be the case.
Q. Will the balls, jerseys, and other equipment be sanitized regularly?
A. The expectation has been set with every coach that the training equipment will be sanitized regularly
Q. Will there be hand sanitizing stations available during match weekends?
A. Yes. They will be stationed at locations at ISSC based on the location of matches
Q. Will any decision made by local education officials to cancel school or mandate distance learning impact the decision to continue with a fall season for 2020?
A. Maybe. Primarily, BASC will look to US Soccer and state and local governments regarding cancellation. The decisions made by local schools could be considered as a secondary criteria.
Q. Can you assure me that out of town games will have sufficient “safe to play” measures regarding sanitation, social distancing, and other?
A. No. While all organizations we corporate with for league play have the same or similar guidance as we do, we’re not able to enforce or confirm compliance for other organizations and locations.
