  • We will have an alcohol-based hand sanitizer (with at least 60% alcohol) and handwashing stations for all participants to use regularly throughout the event.
  • All players, coaches, and spectators should practice social distancing of 6 ft. wherever possible and activities that are not conducive to the required 6 feet of physical distancing will be limited throughout the day. 
  • We request that players space equipment accordingly to prevent close contact.

Update on Masks Requirements

We will be following USAU's new mask protocols they recently issued which states that all participants (e.g., players, coaches, event staff, observers, chaperones, etc.) will be provided with the option to report their vaccination status as part of the event registration process (or testing status).
a. Participants who provide proof of completed vaccination (i.e., two weeks after final dose) will not be required to wear a mask at the event, unless otherwise required by state or local regulations.
b. Participants who submit proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test will not be required to wear a mask at the event, unless otherwise required by state or local regulations. The test must have been performed within 72 hours of the start of the event and submitted prior to participation.
c. Participants who do not meet the criteria in 2a or 2b above may participate provided they wear a mask when at the event.
d. Off-field mask requirements for other event attendees, including but not limited to parents, spectators, media, etc., will be subject to the applicable federal, state or local guidelines for vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals.
 
The option to provide proof of complete vaccination or a negative COVID-19 PCR test will be a part of each player's USAU membership profile and we will be checking registration via the USAU event rosters of participating teams and individuals. Players and/or teams that don’t comply with these or other event rules are subject to removal from the event.

Notes on Mask Protocol: 

- The masking requirement for non-tested/non-vaccinated individuals is only being applied to on-field situations (in order to address close in-game interactions such as marking).
- The people covered by this requirement will include only players, coaches, and observers. 
- All off-field requirements will defer to state and local guidelines for outdoor sporting events (masks are optional in Colorado in this situation).
- All non-player/coach/observer attendees will defer to state and local guidelines for outdoor sporting events (masks are optional in Colorado in this situation).

NEGATIVE TEST RESULT INSTRUCTIONS

For the negative COVID-19 PCR test that was taken within 72 hours of the start of the event. ***NOTE: the test must be a PCR test, not an antigen (AKA rapid) test. 

For this event that means your test must have been conducted AFTER 9:00 am on Wednesday, June 16, 2021.

Once you have your results, please fill out this form (test submitted with a date prior to Wednesday will be invalid)and upload a picture or screenshot of your results. Results must include your name, date of test, that it was a PCR test, and the negative result. If your result is positive, you are not to attend and should quarantine. While we hope that Spirit of the Game extends to your honesty in filling this form out, any uploaded images that are found to have been altered or forged will result in immediate ejection from the tournament as well as potential suspension from future events.

The safety of our players, their communities, and the communities in which we host events are of the utmost importance. Playing ultimate is a privilege, one that we can only participate in if we work together to ensure each other's health and safety.
