Covid-19 Safety Plan 

VanCity Basketball Academy Updated Safety Plan – May 28th, 2021

VanCity Basketball Academy follows the direction of the B.C. Ministry of Health, ViaSport, and Basketball BC. All VanCity Basketball Academy programs run in North Vancouver.

Updated Safety Plan
All players and parents must follow all safety protocol and we ask you to be on time as often times there is only one coach available for each program due to safety precautions.

As safety protocols change we will be informing parents.

Staff must Self assess for any symptoms of Covid-19 and must not come to the gym if they have any symptoms. Coaches must wear masks in the gymnasium at all times.

Athletes should not attend skill sessions if they are sick or have any symptoms of Covid-19. Kids have the option to wear a mask in the facility.

Parents are not permitted in the gym at any time. Parents are also asked not to hang out near the gym.

We encourage players to bring as few items to the gym as possible. Items will be stored separately from other players and area will be cleaned when kids leave.

Players must have their own basketball and water bottle which will be sanitized multiple times throughout their training session.

Players will have their hands sanitized upon entry and wash before exiting.

All high touch areas will be sanitized before and after skill sessions.

Our facilities are protected and treated by Zero Blast which is a germ protections the gym from germs, viruses, bacteria, mould and fungi. This treatment lasts 90 days and our next scheduled cleaning is in December.

The school also does daily cleaning of the facility.

Here are the guidelines for us to follow from The Basketball BC website:

VanCity Basketball Academy was established in 2012 as a family business on the North Shore. We believe that every athlete has a spot with our club and every one of them deserves to be treated with respect to reach their goals in Basketball. We hope every one of our athletes and parents feels part of our VanCity family and we look forward to working with new families for many years to come.
