I wanted to give everyone an update on how we are handling the COVID Virus.
- We are doing everything we can to enforce the mask mandate. We ask that everyone inside the facility wear their mask. We understand players may be very uncomfortable in wearing masks while on the court competing. They may lower their mask but must wear it on the bench. All others including coaches, refs, players on the bench and spectators must wear masks while inside the Island Garden. Please understand that we are following the orders of the Governor.
- We have been canceling any game that is impacted by COVID protocol. We will make it up later in the season.
- We have contracted with a company that will disinfect Island Garden three times each week out of an abundance of caution.
- We have decided to cancel the Christmas Tournament. With the high number of cancellations in the last seven days, we thought it would be best to avoid a chaotic situation where possible last minute cancellations would create significant challenges. We also thought that we should limit the size of crowds during this vacation period. Island Garden will be open for practices and rentals as they have much fewer attendees.
In all, we are doing everything possible to keep everyone safe while also proceeding with our lives.
