SPA SPA Members,

In response to concerns surrounding the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and in accordance with guidance from the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention, the World Health Organization, and other health authorities, and as part of a proactive approach to preventing the spread of germs, we cannot stress the importance of all SPA participants, umpires, directors, staff, and others following these guidelines.

SPA is instituting a precautionary “no-contact, no-handshake policy” to be observed at every level until further notice. This includes any physical contact and extends to customary game-related activities, such as pre-game coaches’ handshakes, umpire-coach introductions, and post-game handshakes./>
All SPA directors, umpires, staff and participants in SPA-sanctioned events should be aware of the coronavirus risk and take the necessary precautions to avoid exposure to germs. This includes maintaining good hygiene practices. We strongly recommend the following:

We appreciate your cooperation in following these new procedures as we work together to maintain the highest health and safety standards.
