In The Zone

Action Plan for COVID-19 Mitigation During Summer Camps

Health and Safety Plan

 

In The Zone will be opening for basketball and volleyball day camps starting June 5, 2020.

We will be taking the following steps

to reduce the potential spread of the COVID-19 virus:

 

  1. ITZ will limit the number of players to about 50% normal capacity. This will be roughly 40 players depending on the type of camp.
  2. All ITZ Staff will be checked daily for fever and/or symptoms.  Office Staff will wear masks; they will wear clean gloves when serving food or concession stand items.  All Staff and on-court Trainers will regularly wash hands with soap and water.
  3. Frequently touched areas will be cleaned and disinfected throughout the day.
  4. Registration must be completed and paid in full IN ADVANCE to avoid unnecessary contact at registration desk.  Pre-registration information is on our website and at the end of this document.
  5. Player drop off and pick up will be conducted outside of the building at the front entrance. Our ITZ Staff will be outside in the parking lot to supervise this process to ensure safety and proper registration documentation.
  6. Parents should plan NOT to enter the building for drop off, pick up, or to stay for camp (special arrangements will be made for younger youth camps).  The workout/gym area is not open to the public.  If you need to contact our Staff or your child during camp hours, please call 610-837-8605.
  7. Player guidelines during camp events:
    1. Small groups of players will remain in the same groups for the course of the camp.
    2. Players will be spaced apart as much as possible, similar to the social/physical distancing you are already familiar with.
    3. Players are encouraged to bring their own volleyballs. If they do not bring their own, players are asked to keep the same one throughout the camp each day. However, there will be passing and other drills where volleyballs will be shared. Players will sanitize their hands and the volleyballs will be disinfected before and after the drill.
    4. For full day camps with a lunch session, picnic tables will be limited to 2-3 players. Additional tables will be set up in the training area on the gray court.  Bleachers will also be available for lunch.  Please encourage your player to bring their own lunch that does not need to be refrigerated.  Lunch can be ordered and safely served by our staff, but bringing your own is preferred.
    5. Water breaks will be staggered. Please encourage your player to bring a bottled drink or purchase a bottled drink at our concession stand. Use of our water fountains is discouraged.
  8. Portable hand sanitizing stations will be set up next to each court, in the break area and at the front desk.  Restrooms will be stocked with soap, paper towels and handwashing signs.
  9. Fans will be used, doors will be opened, and/or air conditioning will be used (depending on inside and outside air temperatures) to promote good ventilation.
  10. Signs will be posted throughout the facility to encourage and remind everyone of proper personal hygiene and mitigation measures.
  11. There will not be a graduation ceremony at the end of camp to ensure social/physical distancing.
  12. Everyone is encouraged and expected to practice safe hygiene and mitigation procedures.  — If your child is sick, please do not send them to camp. If your child tests positive for, shows symptoms of, or has been exposed to someone with symptoms or a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19, please stay home and contact the In The Zone COVID-19 point of contact, Steve Turpening at 610-837-8605 to notify us of the situation.  We will then confidentially notify health officials and close contacts.

In the Zone’s Volleyball  Fundamentals Program 2019-20.

Looking for an alternative to the high price and long traditional club volleyball programs? In the Zone has the answer.  A reasonably priced, 3 month volleyball program focusing on teaching, practicing and refining players’ fundamentals.   At In the Zone, we believe that athletes never out-grow and can never get enough of the game’s fundamentals. These basics are the building blocks that all else is built upon.  Although this is primarily a girls program, boys are welcome.

This is a developmental program for girls who are looking to improve their basic skills.
This is a perfect opportunity to refine players’ fundamentals without the time and financial commitment of club ball!

Our program will differentiate itself from other traditional club programs in several ways:

  • Our season will run Dec-Feb instead of Nov-Jun like traditional clubs.       We won’t interfere with spring sports like softball, lacrosse, AAU basketball and track. And it won’t run into the summer.
  • This will be a fundamentals driven, skill based program.       We won’t play in tournaments or leagues. We will have a few local scrimmages but the focus will be on developing fundamentals. Since everything is local, players can probably do this program AND a winter sport, like basketball or swimming.
  • When teaching the fundamentals, its often more beneficial to focus on practice sessions than games.   Fundamental development occurs through repetition. Reps are accomplished in practice. In a game, how many times will a player get to serve? 5-10 times maybe. How many digs? A couple—if that. During a well run and efficient practice, you can get 10-20 times the number of reps that you get in a game.
