Safety First While Playing Sports

2020 have brought drastic changes to a lot of fields including sports. As a community, we are placing more importance on team safety than we have before, due to all the current climate changes. According to CDC rules, every individual has to do our part to follow the guidelines and keep our children and young adults safe and healthy enough to continue being able to play their favourite sport.

All the practices, all the training done for the game season came to a halt and was unexpectedly cancelled. while playing sports let's make sure that we are considering ourselves and others so that we can continue playing our favourite game and creating new winning memories with our teammates. In order to do so, you might want to take into consideration these general guidelines.

Safety Tips While Playing Sports During COVID-19

Stay at home, if you’re feeling a little under the weather

If you feel sick, you will not be playing to your best abilities, you could also get your teammates sick. Missing one game/practice in order to get healthier, is better than having the entire team calling sick and having to take a loss.

Consider wearing a face mask when you're not playing

Safety tips while playing sports during COVID-19

As face masks deter the spread of bacteria, we can again avoid having to cancel a game or be disqualified due to not having enough healthy players. Our custom face masks are great for those who want to match it with your team colours for a full custom uniform or make yourself stand out from the rest of your team.

Bringing extra supplies

Extra supplies such as hand sanitiser and tissues with you. If you are not out on the field/court, spraying hand sanitiser can help deter the spread of germs. Having tissues handy can help you not have to search for something to use and you are able to dispose of them once you’re done using them.

Label and don’t share your belongings

If you label your water bottle, you can always be sure you grabbed yours and not your teammates which looks just like yours. Even though as a team you are used to sharing and working together, while not playing, consider not sharing to eliminate any spread of germs that can happen through sharing.

Try not to carpool with teammates

It is understandable that this cannot always be followed. Things pop up and now you need a ride to your game or practice, or else you won’t make it. While it is not ideal to miss a game/practice, consider not carpooling when possible. As you’re in very close proximity when carpooling, it can help spread bacteria when we want to be avoiding just that. Like mentioned before, it is not the ideal situation for all but those who can avoid it should consider it to ensure better team safety.
