With the recent news of updated recreational restrictions from the governor's office, we wanted to provide guidance on what that means for Sammamish Baseball/Fastptich Clubs. As mentioned, there are new regulations published that allow for more baseball/fastpitch activity, which is considered a "moderate" risk sport. In summary, league games, scrimmages & intra-squads are allowed in counties that are deemed to have a low or moderate level of COVID activity. In addition, all organizations are required to have a return to play safety plan which is listed below. Here is the link to the WA State Updated Youth Sports COVID Guidelines. https://www.governor.wa.gov/sites/default/files/COVID19%20Phase%202%20and%203%20Sporting%20Activities%20Guidance.pdf?utm_medium=email&utm_source=govdelivery
These guidelines are based on the current Washington "Safe-Start" Initiative - updated 10/8/20.
These guidelines are our minimum baseline; if fields or government health officials require stricter guidelines, those requirements will be mandatory based on field, county, etc.
Coaches add to first aid kit: Hand sanitizer, lysol or other disinfectant wipes.
Coaches maintain roster of all players for all events including team meetings, practices, games, and other team functions.
According to John Snyder, Outdoor Recreation & Development Sr. Policy Advisor to Gov. Inslee: “While participating in team outdoor recreation, including baseball - participants would need masks when they are not actively participating in games, such as when they are waiting on the bench.” Based on that direction, here is our policy on masks:
Players must be wearing masks when arriving and leaving the field/facility.
Masks can be removed when actively warming up / participating in the game.
Masks must be worn when in the dugout, unless all players are spaced out 6 feet apart, using the bleacher area as overflow - NO EXCEPTIONS
Coaches must be wearing masks at all times
No spectators allowed except for one adult parent/guardian/caregiver for each minor-aged participant allowed. Spectators that stay must wear a mask and maintain physical distance of at least six (6) feet between each person.
Strongly recommended to wear a mask (covering nose and mouth); per state guidelines. Umpires are considered “active participants” as they often need to run in the field of play.
Alert your players and families that anyone feeling sick SHOULD STAY HOME.
Players and coaches may not enter the playfield until the start of the reservation, and no equipment can be brought to the field until the start of the reservation. Waiting on the sidelines prior to the start of the reservation is not allowed.
Hand washing stations and/or hand sanitizer must be available for all trainings and contests.
Upon arrival, coach/team rep is responsible for the following:
Ask players/coaches the following questions as they arrive:
Have you tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 14 days?
Have you been sick or running a fever in the last 48 hours?
Have you been in contact with anyone diagnosed with COVID-19? If answer is YES to any of the above questions, player must leave the premises.
All players & coaches wash / sanitize their hands.
Clean high touch surfaces and disinfect shared equipment.
Pre-game warmups - players should adhere to social distancing guidelines (stay 6 feet apart)
Pre-game plate meeting
Coaches & umpires wear masks and stay 6+ feet apart to discuss game rules.
Exchange of lineup cards from coaches to umpires is at the home plate umpire’s discretion; In situations where lineup cards are not given to umpires prior to the game, they must be available in each team’s dugout to resolve any potential conflicts.
Umpires are provided a copy of these guidelines to review at home plate.
Limit physical contact; no large group celebrations (walkoffs, home runs, etc.).
Umpires / Coach Interactions
Masks must be worn by both the umpires and coaches during any interaction.
Coaches & umpires stay 6+ feet apart to discuss any questions or conflicts.
At the umpire’s discretion, game balls will either run through the umpire (per normal protocol) or through the defensive team. In situations where the umpire chooses not to handle the game balls, the defensive team will provide balls when their team is in the field. When balls go out of play, they will be thrown in by the defensive team bench to their pitcher to resume play.
Masks must be worn when in the dugout, unless all players are spaced out 6 feet apart, using the bleacher area as overflow - NO EXCEPTIONS.
The bleacher area at each field should be available for player overflow based on the size of the dugout.
Fans will be limited to sitting and/or standing down the foul line and outside the outfield fence, making the bleacher area available for player overflow.
No post-game handshakes - alternate ways to acknowledge your opponent - hat tip, etc.
Clean high touch surfaces and disinfect shared equipment.
All players and umpires must vacate the field within 15 minutes of the end of the reservation. All equipment and garbage must be removed from the field within 15 minutes of the end of the reservation.
