Baseball Returns to The Academy Monday, June 15th

I hope this finds everyone doing well and staying safe as we continue to work our way through these historic times in our world. Baseball is finally returning here at the Academy, although with several operational changes.  First and foremost, however, we need to do this in the safest and most responsible manner, and all of our time here lately has been going into how to best provide baseball opportunities for everyone while making sure we are diligent in providing those under the often-changing guidelines put in place to best keep everyone safe.  Much thought and preparation has been, and continues to be put into our return to baseball preparedness plan and new operating procedures that will be in place to safely get us back to enjoying the game of baseball the best we can.

Here are some of the things you will notice upon returning to the Academy: 

Who is Allowed in the Facility:  No one other than athletes participating in training is allowed into our facility. This will help us meet capacity numbers more efficiently.
Equipment:  Players must use their own bat and helmet
Hand Sanitizer and Hand Washing: Athletes are required to hand sanitize and/or wash hands immediately upon entering the facility. You will find hand sanitizer in many accessible places in the lobby. Additionally, we will ask that you hand sanitize / wash hands as you leave.
PPE: We will require our coaching staff to wear masks while coaching.  For training indoors at NVBA, athletes must wear masks as well. (Must bring your own mask)
Social Distancing: Many steps have been taken to ensure social distancing in the facility: staggering class times, minimizing group sizes, utilizing/reorganizing all of our cages, all in an effort to safely keep 6 feet of distance.
Disinfecting:  We have put in place disinfecting protocols to include hourly cleaning, specifically the bathroom and all high touch areas within the facility.
Restrooms: We request that all athletes and customers please refrain from using the restroom unless it is an emergency. The more we can reduce use in these high touch areas, the safer they will be.
We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions that you may have about the steps we are taking to keep you, and every athlete safe in our facility.
