Players will need to keep spaced when arriving at the school, check in with coaches by getting their temperature checked, answer some basic health questions, and sanitize hands. Then, proceed to their assigned pod/court of 9 players maximum and 1 coach and stay with that group the entire hour. Players will need to bring their own basketballs and water bottles and cannot share. No school equipment will be used and there will be no access to locker rooms, drinking fountains, and bathrooms. Players will work individually on skills with the coach on their court. If the CDC/MSHSL's rules loosen later in the summer, we may be able to work with partners and add some competition. Coaches will escort their group to the designated exit doors upon completion of each session, keeping proper distancing. There will be no re-entry.
