IMPORTANT 2020 SUMMER UPDATE:
Dear Junior Tennis Parents,
You may have received an automated email from the software system reminding you of your Monday start. This was set to everyone in the summer program, even those who are signed up for a subsequent week/s. We apologize for the confusion.
At BTC we take your child’s safety very seriously. We have based many of our new 2020 Junior Tennis Policies from the Health Guidance for Childcare and Summer Programs manual issued by the Vermont Department of Health as well as the USTA Facility Tips and Recommendations. These policies are susceptible to change with the introduction of additional governmental guidelines.
Prior to arrival:
Juniors or staff with cold symptoms, including any symptom associated with COVID-19 including such as cough/sneeze/fever, or if they are feeling poorly, are required to stay home.
Juniors or staff with a positive COVID-19 diagnosis, can only return to the club only after they have fully recovered, with a doctor’s note confirming their recovery.
Juniors or staff who have recently returned from areas with a high number of COVID-19 cases (see Cross State travel from ACCD), are required to quarantine for 14 days or 7 days with a negative COVID-19 test result, and return to the club only if they are fully asymptomatic. They are also asked not to come into physical contact with any juniors/co-workers during this time.
Juniors or staff who have been in close contact with someone infected by COVID-19, with high chances of them being infected, are required to stay home for 14 days or 7 days with negative COVID-19 test results, and return to the club only if they are fully asymptomatic. They are also asked not to come into physical contact with any juniors/co-workers during this time.
Staff who need to provide care to a family member infected by COVID-19, are only permitted to return to the club 14 calendar days after the family member has fully recovered, provided the staff member is asymptomatic or has a doctor’s note confirming they don’t have the virus. They are also asked not to come into physical contact with any juniors/co-workers during this time.
Please arrive no more than 10 minutes early for your session. Head directly down to the bottom courts for check in. Kids need to be collected immediately after their tennis session.
Upon arrival, all players are required to wash their hands at the new faucet by courts 4&5. They are required to wash hands after tennis too
The Vermont Health Department recommends that kids over the age of 2 should wear facial coverings
At BTC facial coverings will not be required during outdoor activities but must be accessible for indoor activities and other instances where physical distancing is not possible.
Juniors must stay home if they are sick for any reason.
Juniors should have their own equipment (tennis racket, towel, sunscreen, hat swim suit etc). If you need a loaner racket, please contact Megan at email@example.com to make arrangements.
Juniors should try and maintain a distance of 6 feet apart
If a child gets sick during tennis they will be separated from the group. An authorized guardian will be contacted and required to collect the kid immediately.
All staff are required to completed the BTC in house staff training and complete VOSHA training: https://labor.vermont.gov/VOSHA
Staff must be wearing facial coverings during indoor activities or where they are unable to social distance. Facial coverings must be handy at all times
Ongoing instructions for staff and juniors:
The clubhouse will be the gathering point during lightning. Campers and staff will be socially distanced inside the clubhouse and required to wear masks. All doors and windows will be open to allow for airflow.
Wash hands after using the toilet, before eating, after each activity, and if you cough/sneeze into your hands (follow the 20-second hand-washing rule). You can also use the sanitizers placed around the club.
Cough/sneeze into your sleeve, preferably into your elbow. If you use a tissue, discard it properly and clean/sanitize your hands immediately.
Open the windows regularly to ensure open ventilation.
Avoid touching your face, particularly eyes, nose, and mouth with your hands to prevent from getting infected.
