Seretti Basketball Camps

COVID-19 Safety Protocol for S3HoopsLLC 

Camp Participants 

All participants must strictly adhere to the measures outlined below to protect themselves and others from the spread of COVID-19. Basketball is a contact sport, and there will inherently be some level of contact between players at camp. Our Camp is complying with requirements of the PA Department of Health and CDC guidelines, and the protocol below demonstrates its efforts to minimize the amount and duration of contact between campers to the greatest extent feasible. However, this risk cannot be eliminated. Please contact  camp director Alan Seretti with any questions regarding these issues.

Pre-Camp Health Screen and Check-In Procedure 
  • All campers and parents must wear face coverings and maintain social distance during check-in. 
  • After you park, there will be a clearly designated area where the camper (no parents) should go first to have their temperatures taken. All campers must complete a daily temperature screen prior to entering Camp.
    • Reminder: social distance of 6 feet must be maintained while waiting in line for the temperature screen. 
  • In addition to the temperature screen, all campers must complete a brief written health screening. 
  • After passing the health screen, the camper (without the parent), will be directed to a check-in table by the Kline ramp where they will be given further camp information.
    • All drivers must remain in their vehicle until their camper passes the daily health screening.  Any individual who fails the health screen will not be permitted to participate and must leave the facility.

Precautions While Competing
