COVID-related Modifications

Masking / Social Distancing
Everyone over 2 years old, regardless of vaccination status, must wear a face mask over their nose and mouth when in the School Building. This is not negotiable.

Athletes and referees do not have to wear a mask when exercising. Athletes, however, must wear a mask when not exercising, when on the bench, and when entering and departing the School Building. Coaches will be masked at all times.

Anyone who does not feel obligated to follow this State rule should not register their child.

If health conditions or federal, state, or local guidelines change, we will notify participants and families as it relates to specific NVJCYO activities or events.

No Spectators at Practices
For practices held at Holy Spirit, we ask that there be no spectators. Parents should not be at practices. Only coaches who are fully compliant with Child Protection Policies should be attending practices. Drop off and pick up will be at the back of the school building / Door 8.

Diocesan COVID Waiver
Part of the registration process will include this waiver. All participants must turn one in, prior to participation. In this waiver participants / families commit to self-health screenings, reporting of positive COVID cases among other things. Please read it thoughtfully…

Attendance
Attendance will be taken at practices for COVID tracing.
