Basketball Club Covid-19 Statement

At this time, the Ignit Basketball Club is planning to start our practices the week of April 13th, 2020 which is the Monday following the four-week closure period for area schools.  When we begin, we will advise everyone to follow health precautions such as consistent hand-washing, covering coughs and sneezes and staying home when sick with any illness.  Part of our current contingency plan is also staggering practice times to limit access to no more than 50 athletes. Our staff has been actively disinfecting high-touch surfaces and providing hand sanitizer throughout our Facility.
The Ignit Basketball Club’s #1 priority is the health & safety or our athletes, coaches, staff and families.  We are closely monitoring the most current information from the centers for disease control and prevention, the Iowa Department of Public Health and updates from Governor Reynolds and state officials. With these recommendations and requirements we will continue to remain responsive in our efforts to mitigate risk of the spreading of COVID-19.
Here are a list of resources to help answer your frequently asked questions:
Please continue to check our website and social media for continued updates and information. 
Thank you, best regards,
Go Ignit!
