TO THE API COMMUNITY:

Effective March 1, 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.
    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 (50%) spectators are prohibited for all sports practices, training programs, clinics and skills sessions. For competitive league and tournament games, one (1) spectator per player is permitted to attend. Spectators for games are permitted inside only when their team is playing and must exit the building immediately following the completion of each game.
    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
