COVID-19 HOME CAMP RULES
(Updated 6.12.2020)
Safety is our priority for your camp experience. We are deeply committed to the safety and well-being of our athletes and
coaches. We are prepared to deliver instruction that will meet the state and local guidelines related to COVID-19 at the
time of the camp. While the final details and schedule of any camp could require up to the day adjustments, and all
guidelines are subject to change based on Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (“CDC”), federal, state and local
guidance, please be assured that Varsity Spirit is committed to delivering the same quality of instruction for which we are
known. We appreciate your understanding of the flexibility this will require.
Below, you will find the guidance that we believe is necessary for each identified group to follow in order to conduct a
safe and enjoyable camp. Please know that the following is in addition to any guidelines applicable to or mandated by
your institution, such as local, city and state orders and any guidelines established by your institution. In addition to this
signed document, a copy of all such additional guidelines must be provided to us prior to camp for them to be applied.
We will need to work together to make sure that all guidelines are communicated, applied and enforced.
School / Organization
Maintain a clean and sanitized facility at all times during the camp.
Clean/sanitize mats with cleaner on the Environmental Protection Agency’s list of disinfectants for use against SARS-
CoV-2 accepted methods at each break or shift (if shifts are adopted because of space reasons) or as otherwise
directed by the CDC or as may be reasonably necessary.
The facility for the camp should be large enough to meet space needed following the CDC, state and local guidelines.
The CDC recommends maintaining 6 feet of distance from others. This translates into a 28 square-foot (i.e., a circular
area with a 3-foot radius surrounding each person) allotment per person. To the extent feasible, the facility should
be well ventilated.
Access to restroom facility with proper sanitation areas for frequent handwashing. Must be properly equipped with
soap, paper towels, trash can by exit, etc. Remove or prop open doors or other high touch points for entry/exit (if
feasible).
Access to a separate holding room that campers can go to if feeling ill or present with signs/symptoms consistent with
COVID-19.
Coach/Advisor must be present at all times during camp and available to assist Varsity Spirit staff in enforcement of
the established rules, including recognizing when a camper should be removed from camp for signs/symptoms or
violation of rules.
If stunting/lifting or other close contact drills are performed, the swapping of partners should be limited.
Stunting should be performed only if close contact sports are not prohibited by state and local orders and all protocols
for close contact are followed.
Allow for drop off and pick up ONLY (or campers driving themselves).
Visitors are allowed only if permissible by the school/organization and if social distancing guidelines are followed. All
visitors must sign an attestation document (attached).
Ensure that the school/organization has provided a copy of these guidelines to all athletes as a part of the Varsity
Spirit Camp Rules.
Ensure that the school/organization has a signed copy of these guidelines from all coaches and anyone else who will
be present during camp attesting that they have read, understand, and will comply with these guidelines.
Educate athletes, coaches, advisors, school/organization staff, or anyone else that will be present at the camp about
COVID-19, how it spreads (including through persons who are asymptomatic), all symptoms of COVID-19, proper
hygiene (e.g., avoiding touching face, vigorous washing of hands etc.), and the importance of social distancing (e.g.,
prohibition on unnecessary touching and in the alternative utilization of air hugs, air high fives, etc.).

feet separation, no touching, air hugs, air fives, etc.).
