Trials and training camp are scheduled to occur at the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Training Center (OPTC) in Colorado Springs, CO. The U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Committee (USOPC) follows The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and local government guidance to determine mitigation measures based upon the CDC’s Community Levels. Thus, USA Basketball must follow the USOPC COVID-19 protocols. The USOPC currently utilizes three (3) levels of risk profiles (i.e. Low, Moderate and High) to determine these protocols. Health and safety protocols are subject to change pending the risk profile level. Details regarding the USOPC’s policies can be found here.
All visitors over the age of 5 (e.g., parents and family members) are required to show proof of ‘up to date’ COVID-19 vaccination status in order to enter the USOPC campus. Please be prepared to show proper documentation.
The CDC defines two (2) levels of vaccination status:
Fully vaccinated: This status applies to an individual two weeks after they received all recommended does in their primary COVID-19 vaccine series.
Up to date: This status applies to an individual when they have received all recommended doses in their primary COVID-19 vaccine series, and recommended booster doses when eligible. For optimal protection against COVID-19, the CDC recommends that individuals remain ‘up to date’ by obtaining all COVID-19 booster doses for which they are eligible.
Information regarding approved COVID-19 vaccines and vaccination status can be found here:
USA Basketball health protocols are based on CDC guidelines and will be updated as deemed necessary. More information regarding the actual health protocols will be shared closer to the start of Trials.
