  • Guest, visiting, or new paddlers are allowed in a AZDBA boat for a maximum of two practices.
    • Guests, visiting, or new paddlers must sign both a current year ABDBA waiver and COVID-19 consent form prior to being allowed in a AZDBA boat (Go to the AZDBA website to complete the forms)
  • After a maximum of two practices, these paddlers may continue to practice upon payment of the current year AZDBA dues
  • Only paddlers, coaches, steersman, and drummers age 12 and older who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or have notified the AZDBA Membership Coordinator of a medical or religious exemption are allowed in an AZDBA boat
    • Paddlers under the age of 12 currently are not allowed to participate
  • Any vaccine exempt paddler should not participate in practice if they have been in close contact with someone with COVID-19 in the 14 days prior to practice
  • Any paddler who has COVID-19 will not participate at practice until:
    • It has been more than 14 days since symptoms began
    • The paddler has been fever-free for more than 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medications
    • Other symptoms have improved Note: The CDC is no longer recommending a negative COVID-19 test before going back out in public
  • Per CDC Guidelines, masks are optional for fully vaccinated participants when in the boat storage, warm-up, staging, and dock areas. Vaccine exempt participants should wear masks when in these same areas
  • Masks are optional for all participants when actively paddling in an AZDBA boat
    • For vaccine exempt paddlers, masks need to be worn during extended breaks or rest periods while on the water
  • Social distancing should be maintained when on land and/or waiting & loading/unloading from the docks whenever possible
  • Each team will perform a temperature check of all participants prior to boarding the AZDBA boats. Anyone with a fever of 100.4F or greater will not be allowed to participate in that day’s practice
  • Boat Capacity:
    • Minimum of 10 paddlers in a standard (20 person) boat
    • Minimum of 4 paddlers in a small (10 person) boat
  • AZDBA Boats must be cleaned and sanitized after each use
  • AZDBA paddles and PFD’s are to be sanitized before and after each use
  • Each team’s coach and/or individual paddlers are responsible for providing their own hand sanitizer
  • Paddlers, coaches, steersman, guests, and drummers must each have completed and passed a health check survey within 12 hours prior to practice via the jotform link on the AZDBA website to participate
  • Rosters must be kept by the Team Captain/Coach (normally via Team Snap or hard copy) for all practice attendees. This will allow for contact tracing should anyone have been exposed to or in close contact with someone with COVID-19,
    10 days prior to or during practice
  • Practice start times will be staggered by at least 30 minutes to minimize the number of paddlers congregating at the marina
  • The AZDBA rules shown above are the minimum COVID-19 safety requirements. Team Coaches/Captains may implement stricter requirements within their teams for added levels of safety

Note: These are the initial AZDBA COVID-19 rules to allow participants to safely return to the water. These rules will be reviewed and updated regularly by the AZDBA Board based on changes to city, state, or CDC rules/recommendations, as well as observations, input, and feedback of the AZDBA membership.
