In order to create the safest environment for all participants, SOMD has implemented a vaccine requirement for participation in all indoor sports (Bowling, CrossFit, Powerlifting, Swimming, Basketball, Cheerleading, Volleyball), as well as flag football, soccer, and softball outdoor team sports. Other outdoor sports do not have a vaccine requirement. To read the full Return to Play Protocol, click here.
Who is included in the Vaccination Requirement. When full vaccination is required to participate, it applies to athletes, unified teammates, coaches, all volunteers, family/staff/spectators who will interact with any participants during the program.
SOMD will be tracking the vaccine status of participants so that they can have an accurate understanding of vaccination rate for their programs and competitions throughout the year. In order to be considered fully vaccinated, valid proof of vaccination will be required – only a valid COVID vaccination card, vaccination certificate or documentation from a medical professional that indicates the vaccination date and type will be accepted. Copies of proof of vaccination should be sent via email to email@example.com.
What if I do not want to provide proof of vaccine?
Those who are not fully vaccinated may choose a sport or activity that does not require a vaccination for participation.
