DFAC 2021 Summer Camps Guidelines

With the current guidelines in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our summer camps may have a different look this year.  Health and safety will always be a top priority and our camps will be structured towards individual skill development, lower numbers of participants, reduced physical contact and regular water/hand sanitizing breaks.

Players will need to bring the following to camps
• Bring your own basketball, DFAC will not provide basketballs for individual use
• Bring your own water, drinking fountains will be off limits
• Bring your own hand sanitizer and towel if desired

Parents will not be able to stay for camps due to the limit of people allowed in the gym.

Drop off players no more then 10 minutes before the start of camp each day.  Players will be released at the scheduled end time each day.

If a summer camp is cancelled for any reason, you can get a full refund or get a full credit to transfer to another camp or league registration.  DFAC has 6 different camps scheduled for the summer, as well as the DFAC Summer Basketball League.
