TO THE API COMMUNITY:

Effective February 14, 2021

At API, the safety and well-being of our employees, athletes, and patrons has always been our top priority. In the midst of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, our mission continues to be to provide a safe environment for the best youth sports programs, camps, and facilities in the state of Maryland. 

API’s current COVID-19 Health and Safety Guidelines continue to evolve with the ever-changing State and local government mandates and requirements. Please see below for our current health and safety guidelines and operational procedures.

Operational Capacity

  1. Operational Capacity: Per Anne Arundel County Executive Order #42, API (#HCU-208023) will continue to operate at 50% indoor capacity for all sports practice, training programs, and skills sessions. Players/coaches participating in sports practices and skills sessions must be divided into groups of no more than 20 per area while providing a minimum of 100 square feet per participant.
    Operational Capacity
  2. Face Coverings: All coaches/staff must wear a face coverings at all times while indoors. Athletes/players must wear a face covering while entering/exiting indoor facilities but may remove face covering once on the field/court.
    Physical Distancing
  3. Physical Distancing: Practice/training agendas must promote physical distancing (greater than 6’) and avoid contact. High fives and handshakes or other close contact activities are prohibited.
    Spectators
  4. Spectators: Due to the current restrictions on Operational Capacity (25%) spectators, including parents/guardians, are not permitted to observe sports practice, training programs and skills sessions.  Players/coaches and organizational staff are the only members who may attend sports practices, training programs and skills sessions
    Schedule
  5. Schedule: To prevent high volumes of people gathering at one time, we will be implementing a fifteen (15) minute transition period between each team/organization’s training/practice. Team/organizations are permitted to enter the building(s) five (5) minutes before the start of their scheduled training/practice and must exit the building(s) within (5) minutes of training/practice completion.
    Hygiene
  6. Hygiene: API strongly recommends that all coaches and players carry a personal/individual bottle of hand sanitizer to use before, during and after training/practice. There are also hand sanitizing stations throughout API’s facilities, and we encourage all athletes, coaches, and organizational staff to use them frequently.

Stay safe, and we look forward to seeing you at API soon!

Thank you, 

API Leadership Team
