Startline Coaching return to training safety code of conduct

I understand that coronavirus is highly contagious and that it is usually transmitted from person to person. I understand that attending group practice activities with other people could increase my risk of contracting the virus even if I follow all the protection guidelines. I understand that participating in group practice activities is a personal decision and completely voluntary and not required in any way. 

In order to best protect my fellow athletes, my coaches, my family, my community and myself, I promise to follow all social distancing and other protective measures required by Startline Coaching and the facilities where I practice as well as any federal, state or local mandates that are in effect.

I will follow USA Triathlon Return to Racing Recommendations for Athletes AT ALL TIMES.

I promise not to come to practice if I (1) am not vaccinated against COVID-19, (2) have had COVID-19 and do not have a doctor’s note permitting me to return to practice, (3) do not feel well, (4) have a temperature above 100.00 degrees ​F *, (5) have been around anyone who has had COVID-19 in the past two weeks, or the person has been ill, or has a fever, (6) have traveled but not completed any self-quarantine requirements recommended by the CDC or required by state mandate.

I promise not to come to practice if someone in my household doesn’t feel well or has a temperature greater than 100.00 degrees F. 

I promise not to come to practice if I have been in contact with anyone diagnosed with COVID-19 in the past two weeks.

I will immediately notify the head coach, Peter Helling, in the event that I have been diagnosed with Covid-19 or have come into contact with anyone diagnosed with Covid-19.

I will not expectorate or clear my nose in the pool/outdoor/other location, on deck, or near the facility/outdoor/or other location at any time. 

I promise to wear a face mask at all times during group practice sessions whenever requested to do so.

I will bring only the essential items with me to practice.

If Startline Coaching or any facility at which practice is held is checking temperatures at the door/outdoor/other location, I promise to comply and that I won’t take fever reducing medications prior to practice.

I will wash or sanitize my hands thoroughly before I enter the facility/outdoor/other location. I will wash or sanitize my hands thoroughly upon leaving the facility/outdoor/other location.

If a COVID-19 infection occurs within the cohort of Startline Coaching athletes or new information becomes available about additional risk reduction, I will follow all extra protective measures required by Startline Coaching.

All athletes must agree to review and abide by this Safety Code of Conduct before voluntarily participating in Startline Coaching training programs. 

All other USA Triathlon Codes of Conduct, rules, and policies remain in effect.
