At NCA, the health and safety of our athletes, coaches, employees, families and friends remains our top priority. As we prepare to potentially host live events this season, we want to share the possible scenarios and the current plan for each NCA school event through the end of 2020 as of August 13th.
We are committed to delivering competitions that will adhere to all guidelines established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), state and local authorities, as well as our event host partners, at the time of each event. These include social distancing measures, rules about face coverings, cleaning practices and more. All Varsity Spirit event staff will be educated and trained based on the guidelines set forth for each event. Please note that each phase may include additional precautions not specifically mentioned below.
Option A Events: In-Person with Social Distanced Spectators
