SPORTIME Bethpage Multi-Sport/VBC Guidelines

We have created the following policies and guidelines for SPORTIME Bethpage Multi-Sport, to be followed until further notice, designed to ensure the safest, smoothest, volleyball (and other team sports) experience for members and staff during this challenging time. 

Please note that SPORTIME's primary and most important guidelines and protocols are contained in our comprehensive Global Guidelines; we strongly encourage you to review them carefully and in their entirety before reviewing club-specific guidelines. The club-specific guidelines are designed only to indicate where a club's protocols differ from our corporate standard, and/or to provide additional detail.

Notwithstanding all the precautions that SPORTIME will take, due to the nature of the virus, the risk of contracting COVID-19 remains, as we are all aware.  Please be safe, respect others and follow all of the precautions, protections and protocols put in place during this COVID-19 epidemic.
