Effective July 6, our COVID protocol allows spectators on a LIMITED and PROVISIONAL basis at our home parks (Turtle Club Park, Vollmer and River Canard).The key provisions of the protocol as it relates to spectators are as follows:

1. All spectators must be REGISTERED in advance using our online form available via this link: https://turtleclubbaseball.com/Forms/2828/Spectator_Registration_Form/. This form, which is short and easy to complete, only needs to be completed once, and once it is completed, it is good for the remainder of the season unless there is a change in contact information. The primary purpose of this form is to comply with the government's requirement that we record the name and contact info of every person who enters our facility (contact tracing).

2. All spectators must CHECK IN at each and every home event with our check-in staff. Only those who have registered as spectators will be permitted entry as a spectator. A check-in table will be set up at the main entrance of Turtle Club Park at least 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of an event. Check-in staff will also be at Vollmer and River Canard events. After the check-in period, efforts will be made to ensure that all spectators in the facility are registered and tracked.

3. For the time being, all persons, including players, coaches, helpers and spectators, who enter and exit the park must wear masks until they are either on a diamond, in a batting cage or at a designated spectator area, at which time masks can be removed, as long as social distancing is maintained. Masks must be worn when travelling to or from entrances exits, or park destinations. If using the bleachers, masks must be worn until seated at least 2m from other spectators. For PWSA events (girls' travel), spectators in bleachers must wear masks at all times, in order to comply with PWSA protocol.  

4. The government is currently requiring us to limit spectators to 75% capacity. At this time, spectators may sit along the outfield fencing (including along the first and third base lines) of a diamond, in the bleachers, or in a parking lot. Spectators are currently not permitted to be behind a backstop, with the exception of house league events on weekends. Further, families are asked to limit their numbers at the park so as to allow others to have spectators and for our club to comply with the capacity restrictions.

In short, we are now allowed to have spectators, but they must be registered (once), checked-in (every time), masked until they get to a spectator area, and limited in numbers.

We greatly appreciate your cooperation in our spectator protocol compliance. Such cooperation is critical to us being able to allow spectators at this time and continuing to offer the best possible baseball/softball experience for our families.

One last thing...the government is also requiring us to screen spectators. To comply with this requirement, spectators simply need to SELF-ASSESS themselves on the day of an event using the government's COVID self-assessment tool: https://covid-19.ontario.ca/self-assessment/. The club does not need any verification of this self-assessment, but any spectator entering a facility of ours is deemed to have declared that they have completed the self-assessment successfully.
