Important Health and Safety Guidelines for Morton Heat

Good Afternoon Morton Heat Families,

In cooperation with the Morton Park District and Morton District 709, we would like to take a minute to pass along some new health and safety guidelines:

As you may have heard by now, the IPDH has issued some regulations for basketball. Please take a moment and see those guidelines here: https://www.dph.illinois.gov/covid19/community-guidance/sports-safety-guidance

What this means going forward?

- As was the case from the first day of practice, masks are REQUIRED for ALL in attendance at Morton Heat activities. This goes for participants, coaches, parents, etc. This is for EVERYONE that enters the Morton 709 facilities.

- Guidelines state basketball is at a Level 1.  Level 1 means "no contact practices, and trainings only". All Morton Heat coaches have been made aware of this rule, and NO scrimmages are allowed at this time. All practices must be coordinated in a manner that does NOT allow for ANY contact. It was originally thought teams could scrimmage each other, and that is no longer allowed under the new IDPH guidelines.

- 6 feet of distance should be made at all times during practices. Using the gym space, coaches should put together a practice schedule that allows for proper distancing throughout the practice.

We understand this presents challenges to our coaches. These are not suggested but required to continue with the Morton Heat program this fall and winter. We also understand this is going to cause some frustrations along the way. We will do the best we can to continue providing a fun, but safe atmosphere for all athletes.

If you have any questions please contact us at mortonheat@gmail.com and we would be glad to answer those!

Have a safe and enjoyable rest of the fall, and winter!
