The following information is being provided as a guide for understanding the latest COVID policies and procedures at The Plex Sports facilities. As the state of Indiana provides new directives, we must adjust and set a new course. Many of the items listed below remain largely as they were in October. There are, however, a couple of crucial updates and policies that we want to make clear. These temporary restrictions are as follows:
According to the State of Indiana, Indoor and outdoor venues of all types may open at full capacity. There are, however, certain restrictions. Following are regulations that must be followed upon entering either Plex facility.
We are fully aware there are differing opinions on the use of face coverings. However, we kindly ask that you respect our staff by following the posted guidelines. This is a difficult time for businesses who must strike a balance between following all state and local guidelines and attempting to keep customers happy. It is not our position to take any type of political stand. We merely want to provide all who walk through our doors with the best possible experience while keeping your health and safety at the forefront.
Players should follow the same policies as defined for guests when entering either Plex facility or when not actively engaging in a program (i.e. using restrooms, etc). However, upon entering the field of play for games, training or clinics, the following will apply:
Masks should be worn when not on the field of play if social distancing is not feasible on the sideline.
Referees must wear masks to and from the fields.
Players may not share water bottles or drink containers, even within their own family.
There should be no physical contact between coaches, players or referees during or after the game. This includes celebrations such as “high fives”.
No sharing of training vests. Players should have their own. Otherwise, if the coach distributes, after a single player wears the vest, it must be put aside so another player does not use it. Training vests will be washed daily.
Remain socially distanced from coach and players on the sideline, when feasible.
Training equipment will be sanitized regularly (balls, pinnies, cones, etc).
Only referees should touch scoreboards to update scores or stop time.
We need the help of all Plex families and fans to maintain a healthy environment and keep programs running smoothly. In addition to wearing face coverings and social distancing, please observe the following:
Stay home if you are not feeling well or have been exposed to anyone who has tested positive recently.
Opt for online registration whenever possible.
Call to make payments for team fees over the phone (496-9999 x0).
Update your player card PRIOR to the session beginning. This will alleviate heavy traffic on the first day of play.
Keep in mind that people 65 and older or have an underlying condition are at an increased risk of having serious complications from catching COVID. Refrain from asking family/friends in that age group to be spectators. Let’s keep them safe.
Spectators and players should arrive at the facility no more than 10 minutes before the game or training is scheduled to begin.
Staff & Volunteer Screening – Staff who do not feel well or exhibit any COVID-19 symptoms are not allowed on the premises. Likewise, if they have a known exposure to anyone who has tested positive, they are asked to inform our administration and will be subject to a mandatory quarantine period.
Face Coverings – Plex staff, including facility managers and retail employees, will wear masks at all times while indoors.
Increased Sanitation – Enhanced cleaning procedures have been put in place. These include the frequency of sanitizing surfaces where customer frequent (i.e. restrooms, door handles, etc). Sanitizing kits are placed in multiple locations throughout the facility and will be utilized by staff members on duty throughout the evenings/weekends.
