PFP COVID-19 Policy & Procedure

By submitting your Covid-19 vaccination information you are no longer required to submit a Symptom Check form every time you enter Planet Fastpitch. This also allows you to remove your mask while training at Planet Fastpitch. Please note that if you are experiencing any symptoms or are feeling sick, we ask that you continue to wear a mask.

Prior to booking, it’s mandatory that you read the entire document below and complete the requirements.  

We have created a strict structure which provides the ultimate level of safety.

 

Planet Fastpitch COVID-19 Policy

Updated June 7, 2021

 

To control the spread of COVID-19 and to keep our community safe, Planet Fastpitch has adopted the following policy that must be adhered to by all players, parents and coaches.  With our facility being over 30,000 square feet, we are confident that we will have ample social distancing and protocol-monitoring capabilities.  While softball is important to us, the health and safety our community is our priority and we are making every effort to comply with applicable guidelines put forth by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the CDC.

 

Sanitization of Planet Fastpitch

  • Equipment and softballs will be sanitized prior to each lesson.

  • All high touch areas will be sanitized daily.

  • There are 3 air filtration systems with UV light filtering throughout Planet Fastpitch to further promote health and safety.

  • We will be using our electric fogging machine on a regular basis with EPA approved cleaner to add another level of germ-fighting protection at PFP.

Prior to Arrival to Planet Fastpitch

  • To enter PFP, you must have a current Covid-19 Waiver on file.  Please refer to button on the top of page.

  • We encourage that you do the bulk of your warm-ups at home before you travel to PFP.  The intent is to limit the amount of time that you spend inside of PFP.

  • Be sure that your lesson payment is complete BEFORE ARRIVAL in eSoft.  Please do all of this online in advance.

Information for Fully Vaccinated Individuals:

  • Once your Vaccination Passport Form has been completed, you are permitted to train at PFP without a face covering and you will not be required to complete the daily Symptom Checker.

  • At the beginning of the lesson, the player will receive a temperature check with a touch free forehead thermometer.  If the player has a temperature of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or higher, she will not be able to participate and will be asked to go home.

Information for Un-Vaccinated Individuals:

  • Face coverings must be worn at all times.

  • At the beginning of the lesson, the player will receive a temperature check with a touch free forehead thermometer.  If the player has a temperature of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or higher, she will not be able to participate and will be asked to go home.

  • The COVID-19 SYMPTOM CHECKER must be completed on each day you have a lesson/clinic and no later than 3 hours prior to the scheduled start time.  THIS MUST BE COMPLETED PRIOR TO EACH VISIT TO PFP.  Participation will not be permitted if this form is incomplete.  We urge you to set a reminder in your calendar.  Please refer to the link above.  

  • If a player or a member of her immediate household has traveled out of the New England, New York and New Jersey and has not either quarantined for 14 days or received 2 negative tests in 7 days, in-person lessons at PFP will not be permitted.  Alternatively, we recommend scheduling an online lesson for remote training.

Ending the Session/Exiting Planet Fastpitch 

  • All instruction will end with 5 minutes remaining.  During this time, the coaches will be disinfecting all equipment that was being used.  At this point, it’s critical to allow each coach the time to disinfect the equipment and thoroughly wash her own hands before the start of her next lesson.  Please refrain from asking questions in that 5-minute window.   It’s imperative that we follow strict disinfecting guidelines.
