BSS 2020-21 COVID19 Player Safety Plan

This operational plan is an attempt to mitigate the risk of spreading the virus.  It is still the responsibility of each family to opt out or stay home if feeling ill at all.  This plan can and will evolve as we learn more about best practices from our Idaho leaders.

* All players will bring their own ball and water bottle to use at the practice sessions.

*  Hand shakes, high fives and similar will be discouraged.

* Coaches and players will be asked to stay home if any member of their family comes up ill during the week of the practice session.

*  Scheduled hand cleaning and ball cleaning will be completed at each practice session.

*  There will be a greater emphasis on individual skill development & individual competitions and less time devoted to team competition.

*  Player Spacing will be demanded during down times such as listening to a speaker or waiting to compete Individually.

*  Face coverings will not be required, but any player that elects to wear a mask will be supported by all coaches and players.

*  High touch surfaces (water fountains, chairs, etc...) will be disinfected before and after each practice session.

*  We will only allow 10 parents (spectators) at a time in the gym to help maintain social distancing. This will be on a 1st come 1st served basis.

These measures were developed after taking in info from the CDC, Rebound Idaho, Panhandle Health and LPOSD Facilities.  We are also open to any other suggestions that that would increase safety and enhance this experience for Sandpoint's youth.  Thanks for your understanding as we take on the unique challenge that this has presented us.

I just wanted to thank you for what you do for so many kids in Sandpoint!  Our son has been through a lot in his few years ...... and I have to say, besides his improved basketball skills - he is also a happier kid than he was before he started coming to the BSS! His self image and self confidence has grown!!  He is more motivated to do well in school and at home. Basketball means a lot to him - as do you!  We are big fans!  Absolutely love what you bring to all of our kiddos! Thanks so much!

Excited Parent

So excited this is happening for the youth of Sandpoint. Darren has been helping train Tru since this summer and we couldn't be more thrilled with him. He is the real deal coach. You WILL improve, you WILL do drills you've never done before, you WILL learn. He is the best opportunity Sandpoint's youth have to develop their skills in this game. Fundamentals, Footwork, Game knowledge, and Passion. Don't miss out on this amazing opportunity. So excited for the youth! THANK YOU DARREN!

My older daughter is so upset when the sessions end each night!  I was so impressed with her play in the 3-on-3 last night.  She has grown exponentially in the confidence arena.  I truly appreciate you telling her to step up as a leader.  She totally has the capacity, but not the confidence.  My younger daughter was over the top that you pointed out how much she had improved.  She may be quiet, but she is taking it all in and having a blast!  Thank you for being who you are and doing what you do.  I think the BSS is amazing!

I have first hand experience of Darren's knowledge of basketball. He'll forget more about basketball then I'll ever learn about basketball. A true leader and teacher. Sandpoint is blessed to have him! #hoopfestchamps
