Where can I register

Important Information Regarding COVID-19:

  • Please be aware that per Cabarrus County School Guidelines, all players, coaches spectators and/or anyone else who enters the school will be required to wear a face covering. This includes our youth athletes during practices and games.
  • Exceptions to face coverings are people who (per Cabarrus County School Guidelines):
    1. Should not wear a face covering due to any medical or behavioral condition or disability (including by not limited to, any person who has trouble breathing, or is unconscious or incapacitated, or is otherwise unable to put on or remove the face covering without assistance)
    2. Is under 2 years of age
    3. Is seeking to communicate with someone who is hearing impaired in a way that requires the mouth to be visible
    4. Is actively eating or drinking
    5. Is a child whose parent, guardian, or responsible person has been unable to place the Face Covering safely on the child’s face.
  • Anyone who does not follow the face covering mandate will be asked to leave. 
  • Social Distancing will be encouraged for all spectators.  
  • Breaks will be built in between games (approximately 15 minutes). We ask for teams to meet outside of the gym and not enter the gym until the team before you have exited.
  • After your practice/game, please exit the facility promptly to allow the next team to enter the gym.
  • You may meet with your team before/after practices and games in the school hallways (where applicable) and/or the parking lot area. We are doing this to minimize the number of people in the gym at one time.
  • Parents should report to Harrisburg Parks and Recreation if your child has received a positive test for Covid.
  • In the case that a positive case of Covid occurs on a team, the team will be quarantined from practicing and games for 10 days from the last time the team was together. All efforts will be made to make up any missed games.
  • We will continue to update our participants if these guidelines change. We appreciate your cooperation in order to increase safety and minimize the spread of Covid-19.
