Covid-19 Camp Guidelines - Summer 2020
Group guidelines per the State of Colorado – Groups of 25 or less per field, including instructors/staff per guidelines issued by the State of Colorado. As has always been our practice, groups are never more than 8 players and most of the time, especially during offensive stations, the groups are right around 5-7 including a coach.
6ft Social Distancing – Social distancing will take place whenever feasible such as in all drill activity. The size of a baseball field allows participants to spread out over a large distance. Cones will be used to designate places for players to wait while they are waiting to participate in a drill. Camp stations will be spaced out over each field. Players equipment will be spaced out either inside or outside of the dugout.
Masks and Hand Sanitizer – All staff members and camp participants will be required to wear masks while checking in. The recommendation for players and staff is that they have the neck gaiter style mask that they can pull up to cover their nose and mouth. This would allow players to pull down their mask while they are participating in drills, but pull the mask up inside the dugout and during station rotation. Hand sanitizer will be distributed to all participants and coaches periodically throughout the day (example: after stations). Parents are encouraged to have their children wear batting gloves while hitting.
Check In and Spectators – Parents will check in players via multiple designated areas to avoid congregating with people. Prior to camp, parents will receive a welcome email that specifies a designated area for check in. Parents will acknowledge, via a visitor log, a symptoms check. Parents, players, and staff members must have their masks on during this process. Parents may drop off/pick up their player. If they choose to stay, bleachers will be off limits. Parents will be should bring lawn chairs and watch from beyond the fence, keeping at least a six foot distance from anyone not in their household. A staggered checkout process will take place by group at the conclusion of the camp via two exits/entrances to each field. Parents will ‘wave’ from a distance to checkout their child.
No Sharing of Equipment – Each camp participant will be required to use their own bat, helmet, and glove. Participants are also required to bring their own supply of water. There will be no communal water supply available.
Players may transfer to another camp, provided there is availability. Contact us at if you would like to transfer to a different camp than you registered for.
Credit, Refund, and Cancellation Policy
If the camp is cancelled for any reason, you will receive a full refund. If you cancel prior to 7 days of the start of your session, we will give you a camp credit for all money paid. The credit is valid for one year from camp date at any of our camps throughout the year. Credit is transferable to family members or friends, and good toward a future camp. Camps cancelled within 7 days of the start of each camp will receive a refund, minus a $50 administration fee. There are no refunds or credits issued once camp has started.
The safety of our campers is our number one priority. Prior to the start of camp and at various times throughout the camp week, players will be instructed on the safety expectations we have for them in order to ensure a safe environment for all participants. If a player needs repeated reminders or is exhibiting behaviors that put other campers at risk of injury, the player's parents will be notified by phone or email of the situation. In extreme circumstances we may ask that a player not come back to camp. If this case arrises, there will be no refund (full or partial).
Checkout Each Day
Players are required to check out each day with a member of our staff. Players will need to identify the responsible adult who is there to get them. If your player is walking or riding a bike to camp, a signed note authorizing such must be given to the Camp Director by a parent or guardian.
We do not offer prorations for absences other than an injury that prevents a camper from completing a session. This is handled on a case by case basis and decisions are made at the sole discretion of Diamond Club Baseball.
General Behavior Policy
We expect players to be respectful to coaches and other campers at all times. Multiple infractions of this policy, although extremely rare over the many years we have run camps, may result in a suspension or dismissal from camp. In the event that this happens, there are no refunds given.
