2020 Boys Basketball Information

UPDATE 1/15/21

IMPORTANT UPDATE REGARDING STUDENT ATHLETES AND TESTING POSITIVE FOR COVID-19

Any student athlete that has tested positive for Covid-19 since getting their physical for sports must get another physical with a doctor before they can resume participation in their sport. Specifically, student athletes need a form of cardiac clearance from a doctor since testing positive for Covid-19 (which the MHSAA physical card has). It is also recommended that student athletes bring their positive test results with their new physical. Providing a positive test result can prevent a student athlete from having to quarantine following a confirmed close contact with someone else that tests positive for Covid-19. If a student athlete has provided documentation that their positive test result for Covid-19 has happened within the last 90 days, the Macomb County health department can exempt them from needing to quarantine following a close contact. Urgent cares and CVS minute clinics can take walk-in appointments for physicals today if you or your child needs to get a new physical completed. 

*Originally practice was slated to resume on Monday, January 18th but that is MLK day. Practice will now resume on Tuesday, January 19th.

Due to the extension of the executive orders in the state of Michigan, boys basketball has been suspended until January 15th. As of now, boys basketball practice will resume 1/19. An updated game schedule reflecting a January 19th start date is posted below. As new information is provided by the MHSAA and the state, this page will be updated. Also, please sign up for the boys basketball Remind 101 if you have not done so already (the link to sign up is below). Mr. Trombley will send out announcements about returning to practice and the updated schedule as soon as they are determined. 

Please carefully read through all of the information below so you have all necessary items you need in order to be allowed to tryout. Masks that cover a student's mouth and nose must be worn at all times during tryouts/practices. Students who don't have the necessary items WILL NOT BE ALLOWED INTO THE BUILDING. Do not complete the online paperwork (FamilyID) or the concussion test for basketball until you know that your child has made the team. Payment for basketball will be assigned to students' accounts on PaySchools Central after cuts have been made.

Again, read through all of the information on this page before emailing Mr. Trombley with questions. You can email Mr. Trombley at DTrombley02@cvs.k12.mi.us if you have questions after reading everything below.

ALGONQUIN BASKETBALL INFORMATION

Parents,

In order to participate, each student-athlete MUST have the following paperwork completed and turned in before the first tryout. Incomplete paperwork will result in your student-athlete being sent home. Student-Athletes and coaches will be required to wear a mask AT ALL TIMES. This includes arriving, departing and all practices/games. You must also provide enough of your own water/sports drink for the duration of practice. We are unable to provide water stations, so please prep accordingly.

You will need the following items to be eligible to practice: 

1. Chippewa Valley Schools COVID-19 Liability Waiver. The waiver can be found here: https://documentcloud.adobe.com/link/track?uri=urn:aaid:scds:US:8ef550ab-9cd7-4f16-990f-dddfb2ef8836 

2. A valid physical on file with the middle school. There are TWO options listed below. Each document has TWO pages that need to be completely filled out and signed by both the student-athlete and a parent:

You can get a new physical dated AFTER April 15th, 2020 and submit that. This is the recommended option. Places like CVS Minute Clinic and Urgent Care facilities can take walk-in appointments so you can get a physical done today. The MHSAA Physical Form can be found here: https://www.mhsacom/portals/0/documents/health%20safety/physical2page.pdf 

OR

If you have a valid physical on file with the middle school from the 2019-2020 school year (completed between 4/15/19 – 4/14/20) and do not wish to get a new physical, you can fill out the MHSAA Health Questionnaire. It will be attached to your physical from last year and can be found here: https://www.mhsaa.com/portals/0/Documents/health%20safety/healthquestionnaire.pdf

If your child played football or tried out for volleyball this school year Mr. Trombley has their physical and they are all set for tryouts.

In addition to the above documents, student-athletes are required to complete the following protocols EVERY DAY before they can enter practice.

1. Each athlete/coach or anyone present needs to fill out the Daily Monitoring Form every day before they arrive. The Daily Monitoring Form can be completed any time during the day before practice. Student athletes should bring a device that they can use to complete the Daily Monitoring Form to every practice in case they forgot to do it during the day. The link to the form can be found here: 

https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdm1IoJ1T0_I21HObhZtXV1a_m7pK045MrFDHiale1kv9Y3Jg/viewform

2. Student-athletes will have their temperature taken before being allowed to enter practice. If a student’s temperature is above 100 degrees Fahrenheit it will be taken an additional 3 times. If their temperature is still above 100 degrees they will not be allowed into practice and will be asked to go home.

3. Student-athletes are expected to arrive ready to practice. Locker rooms will not be available for students to change into practice equipment/attire.

4. Student-athletes are expected to be able to get to practices every day at 3:15pm with their own transportation. As of now, bussing transportation will only be provided by the district for away contests. Basketball will have bussing to away contests but parents will need to pick student-athletes up from the away schools after their game is complete.

5. Student-athletes are required to sanitize their hands before entering and after exiting practice.

6. Student-athletes ARE REQUIRED TO WEAR A MASK AT ALL TIMES during practice. From the time they arrive at practice and are waiting to be checked in until the time they are picked up from practice. During activity, masks can become damaged or saturated. It is highly recommended that students bring additional masks to practice in the event that their first mask becomes unusable.

After a student makes the cut to be on the basketball team, there are additional steps that need to be completed.

1. Concussion Test- After making the team student-athletes need to complete their concussion testing if they have not done so while attending Algonquin Middle School. If a student took a concussion test last school year for a sport, they do not have to take it again. 7th grade students, and 8th grade students who have not taken a concussion test for a sport through Algonquin must complete a concussion test. PLEASE NOTE: Students must use a mouse to complete their concussion test. A laptop touchpad is not allowed for completing the concussion testing. Students should only complete the concussion test once and wait for confirmation from Mr. Trombley. Click the link below for instructions on how to complete concussion testing.
