Guidelines set for Buckaroo summer workouts
Breckenridge ISD Athletics Department has provided an outline for the return of student/athletes to in-person, on-campus training.
Week 1 of Buckaroo offseason workout will begin at 7:30 a.m. Monday, June 8. Workout days will be Monday through Thursday, with no workout on Friday.
Workouts include all athletes from grades 6-12 for the fall of 2020.
The purpose of the guidelines set for on-campus summer activities is to help prevent workplace exposure to COVID-19 for all student/athletes, coaches and staff.
These guidelines are subject to daily review and change as more information becomes available.
BISD has provided these key principals to keep students safe during summer workouts:
• Limit personal interaction - person to person contact should only be for essential activities that cannot be performed in an alternative fashion (virtual or remote).
• Hygiene – handwashing, and hand sanitizing will be emphasized before, during, and after all activities.
• Cleaning and sanitation – routine cleaning will be implemented
• Access to facilities – Facility entry and exit points will be coordinated to minimize personal interaction and facilitate social distancing.
BISD will have strict rules for student/athletes to follow. Multiple handwashing and hand sanitizing stations will be spread out in all areas of conditioning, weight training, and skills training.
Physical contacts such as handshaking, high fives, hugs, fist bumps, and back slaps will not be permitted. Social distancing guidelines include six feet apart when not actively exercising and 10 feet apart when actively exercising.
BISD will have sanitation supplies delivered, installed, and placed in predetermined locations.
BISD Athletic Maintenance will disinfect and sanitize work-out facilities before and after each work-out group.
Buckaroo Athletic facilities will remain closed to the public during work-out times/dates. Only coaches, athletes, and athletic trainers will be allowed.
For entry and exit procedures, parents must stay in their cars during the drop-off/pick up process.
