Best Event Practices and Risk Management

Now more than ever it is our social duty to look after the health and well-being of all who attend our sports events.

We THANK YOU in advance for following our Event Guidelines.

DynaSports Group and Bigfoot Hoops want to assure you that we take the health, safety and well-being of our event participants, attendees, and workers very seriously.

Due to the ongoing concerns related to COVID-19, we continue to monitor national/state/local guidelines, as well as health organization reports, including updates from the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and others.

Event guidelines will vary by location and date, as state and local governments will issue their own guidelines and the guidelines will be revised as circumstances change.  Event practices and protocols will be updated as such changes occur.

Event Format/Scheduling

  • Games will be scheduled every 1.5 hours to better manage entry and exit into facility and to allow additional time for facility cleaning under the facility’s cleaning protocol.
  • Staggered start times may be used for different courts within a facility to better manage entry and exit in the building, as well as appropriate social distancing.

Pre-Event

  • Bigfoot Hoops will coordinate with each facility as to facility’s maintenance plan and schedule, pre event and during the event.
  • Various practices will be unique to a facility.  At least 10 days prior to an event, Bigfoot Hoops will communicate:
    • Facility capacity limits
    • Any limits on attendees by team
    • Designated points of entry and exit for the facilities
    • Social distancing requirements and layout, as this will vary by facility
    • Any unique protocols for the facilities

Event Staff

  • Event staff will be trained as to Best Practices & Risk Mitigation.
  • Each time a staff worker, including officials, enters the facility, the staff worker will have their temperature taken. Any staff worker with a temperature over 100 degrees will be denied entry into the building.
  • Each staff worker, including officials, will complete a Health Declaration each day of the event to limit staff with underlying conditions from being on-site.
  • It will be recommended that all staff wear face masks

Event Entry/Exit

    • Anyone entering the facility will have their temperature taken to restrict the entry of any person who may be running a fever.
      • This will be conducted with a no-evasive thermal scanner as each person enters the building. 
  • Any person with a temperature over 100 degrees will be denied entry into the building.
  •  
  • All gate admissions will be purchased on-line to more efficiently manage entry into the event, to minimize personal interactions, and to avoid person-to-person exchange of cash, passes, wrist bands, etc.
  • Attendees will be asked not to enter facilities more than 10 minutes prior to scheduled game times.
  • All attendees will be asked to exit the building following the conclusion of their team’s game.

Event Operations

  • Based upon layout and best practices of each facility, a specific Social Distancing protocol will be in place and communicated in advance of the event.
  • Sanitizer stations will be provided in the facility.
  • Officials will be provided an electronic whistle
  • Each facility has a Best Practices Protocol for cleaning their facility during an event.
  • We will sanitize all basketballs between games and at half time.
  • No wall brackets will be available.  Schedules and results can be found on the Bigfoot Hoops schedule app.
  • We ask that the players not participate in the traditional post-game sportsmanship line and refrain from handshakes, fist bumps and high fives.

Common Sense for All

  • Have each player bring their own source of water.
  • Do not use water fountains or team water bottles.
  • Remind players to cover their mouth and nose when sneezing or coughing.
    Sanitize afterward.
  • Remind players to wash their hands with soap or hand sanitizer after every game.
  • Remind players to avoid touching their eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • If anyone is showing flu-like symptoms, or if you are uncomfortable having them participate in organized activities, please keep them home. As appropriate, contact your healthcare provider.

Bigfoot Hoops will continue to monitor developments, re-evaluate our policies and systems as circumstances change, and communicate any changes to our teams.  Please be assured our focus is on the health and safety of our participants.

Sports are a critical part of who we are, individually and as a community. We see this as a responsible, first step in a re-entry to playing the game we love and shifting our focus, even if just a bit, to hope and opportunity.

We look forward to seeing you on the courts soon.  Be safe and stay well.
