2020-2021 Texas Tornados COVID Strategic Plan

COVID 19 Pandemic has created an unprecedented worldwide health crisis.  As we plan for the 2020-2021 season, the health and safety of our players and staff is our top priority.  We are committed to providing a safe place for our players to train and have a gym to call home.  This pandemic does not change the high standards we set for training and growth in the sport.  We will continue to be TEXAS TORNADOS STRONG!

A Commitment to:

  1. High standard of training, sportsmanship and individual player development and success
  2. Prioritize health and safety of players and staff
  3. Use research-based data to implement and enforce best practices in the areas of health and safety
  4. Respect and follow the authority of local, state, and federal guidelines and orders

All communication regarding our COVID 19 plan will be updated through our webpage at

COVID 19 Exposure and Symptoms:

This statement refers to “close contact” with an individual who is lab confirmed to have COVID 19.  Close contact is determined by the authorities as:

  1. Being directly exposed to infectious secretions (being coughed on while not wearing a mask)
  2. Being within 6 feet of someone positive for more than 15 minutes, while not wearing a mask or face shield
  3. Living in a household with someone positive with COVID 19

If any of these have occurred within 14 days or 2 days prior to the individual being symptomatic or 2 days prior to a positive COVID 19 test then we can assume you have been in “close contact”.
