There is a lot to this so here is what is NON-NEGOTIABLE if you want to play:

Clinic Requirements
All players are required to check in at the front desk and be temperature checked.  All players must be masked at all times unless they are rehydrating.  All players must maintain social distancing while at the clinics.  Players will be assigned an area for their equipment.  All players must bring their own labeled water bottle and basketball if possible.  We will have a few extra basketballs if needed.  Parents are not allowed into the Y unless they are working out.  We are still required to follow the 50 person limit inside the building so we encourage parents to drop off their athlete and pick up when the clinic is over. If you have not filled out the player/family waiver you will be required to do so before you can play. Players will enter through the main Y entrance and exit out the back of the gym.  We have a lot of players coming in and out and want to remain as safe as possible.  There is parking behind the Y and Mill Mall.

Clinic Timeline
We will be running clinics for the next two weeks.  AYS will start this Friday night with this time slot noted above: Friday - 6:00-7:15pm Girls 7-8th grade

We will have the Saturday and Sunday clinics noted above starting this week! Coaches, please make Tony McKim aware if you cannot do this ASAP.
