Victory Event Series successfully delivered our tournaments and showcases safely in summer 2020. Victory will continue to heed the advice and guidance of local and national health officials.
*Please see Victory’s current COVID-19 policies. These are subject to change based on recommendations from health officials as well as state and local government orders/legislation.
Victory Event Series holds the health and wellness of athletes, parents, and staff as its highest priority. We have adopted the following measures, guidelines, and policies to limit the risk of the spread of COVID-19. Facility policies, state guidelines, and CDC recommendations are changing, and may be applied in addition to these measures.
All individuals (except athletes and coaches during competition) must wear a facemask and maintain six feet of social distance from non-family members. This includes the lines for the bathroom, in the parking lot, and on the sidelines. Parents should avoid touching, shaking hands, or being within six feet of an athlete or individual except their own child. They should sit or stand 6+ feet from the sideline and other individuals. Athletes must wear masks in between games.
Who Should Attend & Who Should Stay Home…
In order to reduce the total amount of people at the complex, it is encouraged that only one spectator per player attends at a given time.
No individuals who have been diagnosed with COVID-19, or have had a fever, chronic fatigue, dry cough, nasal congestion or runny nose, sore throat, or any other symptom of the virus within two weeks of the event should attend.
Individuals with underlying conditions that would classify them as high risk if they were to contract the disease are strongly discouraged from attending this summer (those with diabetes, age 65 or older, chronic lung disease or severe asthma, heat conditions, severe obesity, chronic kidney or liver disease, other cardiovascular or respiratory illness or chronic condition).
Golf cart shuttles will not be available to athletes and parents. Therefore, athletes and parents should be prepared to walk. Those who aren’t able to walk between parking lots and the fields are discouraged from attending this summer.
What to Pack…
Each attending individual (coach, parent, and athlete) is responsible for bringing their own:
- full water jug or large bottle, because Gatorade will not provide hydration at each field.
- personal lawn chair, because benches and bleachers may not be available in between and during games.
- facemask and bottle of hand sanitizer to use throughout the day. All individuals must wear their facemask when in close proximity to others and in communal settings. This includes the parking lot, fields, sidelines, bathrooms, and lines.
- coaches and athletes should also bring disinfectant wipes, and clean their hands and equipment before and after every game.
Importance of Parked Car…
- all individuals present on site must have access to a parked car at the venue, because indoor facilities will not be accessible to teams, parents, or staff. Therefore, all individuals will be asked to seek shelter in their cars in the event of a lightning delay, rain, or other temporary postponement. Please note where you parked in order to quickly access your vehicle.
What Not to Bring…
Team tents (except personal umbrellas) and/or tailgating are prohibited. Each athlete and his/her parent should go directly to their car or sit in an open area with ample physical distance to await the next game (if available). Teams should not congregate in between games, and the sharing of food between families is highly discouraged.
The use of shared team equipment should be limited. If used, it should be cleaned before and after each use.
Responsibilities of Teams (Coaches & Parents)…
It’s the responsibility of coaches and parents to ensure that their athletes have not exhibited COVID-19 symptoms, been diagnosed with COVID-19, or been in the presence of an individual who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 in the last 2 weeks. Coaches may be asked to affirm this in writing prior to the tournament’s first game.
In the heat of a game, please remember to respect the health, wellness, and safety of our field coordinators, officials, and staff. This means:
- Athletes, coaches, and officials must not stand underneath the field coordinator tent at any time.
- Coaches must wear their facemask when speaking with officials, field coordinators, and other staff.
Victory recommends athletes place bags six feet apart on the sideline.
There will be no handshaking lines after games.
If a team coach, athlete, parent, or staff is diagnosed with COVID-19 within two weeks of the event…
It’s the responsibility of the individual (or parent) to immediately self-report a COVID-19 diagnosis within two weeks of attending the event. The self-report should be sent to Bob Dignazio (Director, Victory Event Series) at .
If Victory Event Series is informed of a COVID-19 diagnosis within two weeks of the event, our staff will send a notification email to teams who may have come in close contact with the affected individual. All identifying information will be kept confidential.
The notification email will be sent to Coaches/Directors, who must then communicate this information to their team. No details of the affected individual will be provided. ‘Details’ includes name, team, division, position, age, or any other identifying information.
*Individual recruiting showcase participants would be notified directly by Victory.
