We hope that all of our friends and community partners are staying safe and informed in these ever changing times. All of us at the EPIC SportsLodge are committed to continue to provide a safe and healthy environment for all of our players, our coaches, our referees, and our staff. To ensure this commitment we will continue to be adhering to the latest guidelines from the City of Independence, County elected officials, and our local health department that go into effect on Friday, April 23rd.
 
  Fortunately, in the spirit of safety, The EPIC SportsLodge has already been operating it's leagues/classes/programs at less than 50% capacity ever since we were allowed to reopen our doors this past Summer under the County's Phase 2 Plan of it's COVID re-opening strategy. The latest updated capacity restrictions will now allow us to operate at a higher capacity which means that we can welcome more people in the Facility to watch games/practices/rentals etc.



~~ ALL GUESTS MUST REMAIN MASKED WHEN IN OUR COMMON AREAS (BLEACHERS, BATHROOMS, HALLWAYS) OR THEY WILL BE ASKED TO LEAVE. ATHLETES AND COACHES MAY REMOVE THEIR MASKS WHENEVER ACTIVELY PARTICIPATING ON AN EVENT SPACE (FIELDS/COURTS) ~~
  

 
1) SPECTATORS: Effective Friday, April 23rd we will be able to invite more spectators in to watch their friends and families play their league games. While we continue to ask our league players to be mindful of their guests, and only invite them if absolutely necessary, we will continue to mitigate capacity by staggering start times for games plus extending the duration between games to allow maximum amount of time for departure/arrival of teams.(*NOTE* Allowing spectators is a privilege and if it becomes something that is abused it may be altered or eliminated) 
 


 
2) MASKS: Masks MUST be worn at all times when in our Facility. EXEMPTION: any athlete (Youth/Adult) actively participating in a game/practice is allowed to remove their masks. All players not involved (i.e. players bench area, arriving/departing their game) MUST continue to wear their mask.  (*NOTE* While the EPIC SportsLodge will be allowed by the County to offer their league players the ability to remove their masks; your child's club/organization may not. Please confirm with your coordinators their individual masks policies.) 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 

  Our goal is to help assist our community and mitigate any potential for transmission of COVID-19 and this requires the full cooperation of all our most important business partners - our players and their families. It is our sincerest hope that these procedures now will help us continue to be able to offer our players the ability to do what they love and that is to play sports with their families and friends in our leagues. 
 
  As more information becomes available (and if/when we receive updated protocols from County health officials) we will be sure to communicate any future amendments to these new policies. 
 
  Please understand that, while these stricter COVID mandates are imposed from the elected leaders of Jackson County and are not specific to our business alone, the EPIC SportsLodge is dedicated to doing everything in its power to continue to operate at the level and capacity that all of our teams plus players have joined us expecting. 
 
  We thank you in advance for your participation in these latest policies as well as your consideration of the safety of all of our family and community friends. Please stay safe and we look forward to seeing all of our players with us soon!
