Input Needed on Field Allocation Policy Changes
- Profit, non-profit, not-for-profit (p. 5 sec. IV, L and R)
Insurance (p. 7 sec. V, B, c)
- As a condition for permitting, a requirement of insurance can be established. A threshold of applicability must be established. EX. All athletic leagues and/or sports organizations must have insurance, whether for one-time use or for extended, seasonal use. A group of individuals may apply for use without proof of insurance. FCPS and FCPA has the requirement.
- As a condition of permitting, county attorneys do not recommend having a background check requirement. If the state initiates legislation that says otherwise county will revisit.
- For the Volunteer Gym Monitor and the Volunteer Field Monitor program, NCS can provide training but the individual sports organization is actually providing the monitor; as such sports league or organization should be responsible for acknowledging the background check for the monitor if back ground checks become a requirement.
- Synthetic turf (discussion no changes)
- New and emerging sports (p. 10 and 12 table 3 and 5)
- Tournaments (discussion no changes)
- Allocate based on number of teams (with a minimum roster size) instead of by participants
- Priority scheduling for youth/adult groups based on being a Certified Athletic Organization (CAO)
