COVID-19 POLICIES

COVID-19 POLICIES

Due to COVID-19, the following policies will be implemented for the 2021 JPOL season. We understand that some of these changes may not be ideal, however such policies are required if we wish to come together and play. Therefore, we appreciate everyone’s cooperation in advance.

Violations of the Covid-19 Policies will be managed as misconduct.

Those electing not to follow the COVID-19 policies may be told to leave the venue. Additionally, willful or wanton disregard of said policies will be addressed as according to the JPH Code of Conduct.

JPH COVID-19 POLICIES

  • We have recently updated our mask policies to reflect that of each individually facility. Please review guidelines below for your specific competition venue.
  • Spectator limitations vary per facility as outlined below.
  • Maintain social distancing guidelines whenever possible.
  • No schedule change requests will be entertained; all clubs will be scheduled to play on each competition date. Due to facility limitations, clubs may be scheduled to play back-to-back matches.
  • Should unforeseen circumstances require JPH to cancel the event prior to the start date (i.e. due to COVID-19), all clubs will receive a full refund less $100 admin fee. If the event is cancelled after commencement, all clubs will receive a prorated refund of $350 for each cancelled competition date.
  • It is the responsibility of clubs and their coaches in ensuring their spectators adhere to all JPH & USAFH policies.
