Show ID with Name and Birthdate with Proof of Vaccination when required every visit

Face coverings:
Are mandatory for anyone who enters the facility and also outside the facility when physical distancing can’t be maintained or predicted.

Covid Screening **UPDATED NEW QR**
1. All participants, instructors and spectators must complete pre-screening questionnaire either by utilizing the onsite tablets or by scanning the QR code once on site or just prior to coming to the facility.

2. Once completed it should show a green checkmark with a date and time stamp indicating you have successfully passed the screening.  

3.  Proof of self-assessment screening needs to be shown before participants or spectators can enter the arenas to play or watch. For the screening to be valid, it will have to be completed before coming to the facility. If you are doing multiple, take a screen shot.
