At the start of each track practice, each individual will check in, have their temperature taken and will be asked a number of questions pertaining to Covid. Please stay with your athlete / partner (if they require transportation home) until we know their temperature is acceptable to stay at practice and all questions on the Risk Form have been answered. Thermometers, hand sanitizer and masks have been provided by SOMA.
Only athletes / partners and 1:1 support individuals will be permitted on the track.
Also required: TWO NEW FORMS that must be completed by all athletes / coaches / partners and 1:1 support individuals in order to participate.
Communicable Disease Waiver:
As mentioned, vaccinations are not required, in lieu of vaccinations, SOI has mandated that as of April 1st, 2021, the Communicable Disease Waiver MUST be completed by all registered athletes and volunteers/coaches returning to play. This is a one time form inclusive of all sports with no expiration date. A hard copy of the Communicable Disease Waiver can be completed and brought to the first practice. Alternatively, an online version of the waiver can be completed electronically.
The waiver has been mailed out to everyone with a valid Medical or Class A form on file. If anyone receives the mailing and has already completed the waiver, they can disregard the mailing.
Covid 19 Risk Assessment Form:
The second of the two new required forms. Please click on the link below . This form must be completed and brought to the first practice. You will only need to complete this form one time, again inclusive of all sports. You will, however, be asked these questions each time you attend practice.
