Memphis Metro Training Safety Protocols
 
We are so excited to be back on the courts. Reopening responsibly, Memphis Metro is committed to the health and safety of our members and the community. Safety for our players, coaches, staff and their families is our number one priority. Our local health officials and USAV have authorized us to reopen. In order to serve our players inside the training facility and to ensure their safety, we have implemented new guidelines outlined below to provide you a safe practice/private lesson experience. As this is an evolving situation, we will continue to monitor local guidelines, regulations and recommendations to ensure all proper precautions are being taken so you can feel safe coming to clinics/private lessons.
Here are the precautions we are taking: each court will have their own sanitized balls and ball carts for each practice (using Nemesis spray). Instruction will take place at least 6 feet apart and players will remain socially distanced. Team practices will be at least one court apart and coaches will wear gloves and a mask during practice. Courts will be sanitized after each practice using a Sterilaser – germicidal UV-C light laser that kills viruses, germs, bacteria and more!
 
Clinics/Camps/Lessons will consist of the following:
Training with start with a limited number of players.
Training will start with a limited number of balls.
Coaches will wear mask and gloves during clinics/camps/ private lesson
Coaches will use separate ball cart/ 15 volleyballs for each group
 
For Athletes:
  • Athlete arrive 15 minutes prior to your training
  • Athletes are required to wear masks to and from the courts
  • Each athlete has to have a waiver signed by a parent prior to the first training (if you have already done this, you do not have to sign again). Click here for the waiver and make sure it is signed and turned in prior to the beginning of the first practice.
