Barangays/HOAs to regulate resumption of contact sports

TRECE MARTIRES, Cavite (PIA) – The loosening of quarantine protocols under Alert Level 2 prompted the local government units in the province to issue guidelines for the reopening of basketball courts in the barangays/subdivisions with the provision that respective barangays or homeowners’ associations (HOA) will regulate said activities. 

Basic guidelines as recommended by the IATF mandated that only those aged 12 years and above who are fully vaccinated are allowed to enter the court and its premises.

By virtue of Executive Order no. 67 S. 2021 which was recently approved and passed by the city government of Bacoor states, all Punong Barangays are enjoined to pass their own more specific guidelines and strictly implement the Minimum Health Standards and Protocols.

The use of half courts in streets and alleys is strictly prohibited as well as holding of basketball leagues which may draw crowds that will violate quarantine regulations particularly physical distancing.

The city government of Imus requires a logbook to record the set of players at any time inside the courts for proper contact tracing.

Meanwhile, the city government of General Trias issued Executive Order no. 30 S. 2021 that orders the barangay to inform the General Trias Component City Police Station (GTCCPS) regarding contact sports activities to be held in their community and shall send barangay tanod/s to monitor compliance to the governing rules.  

The order also authorize the GenTri LGU thru the GTCCPS to immediately suspend organized and unorganized contact sports events upon violation of the guidelines set forth and/or IATF-MEID protocols.

Contact sports activities shall be organized with the coordination of the barangay/HOA according to schedule while the local government of Carmona allows the use of the barangay basketball courts for these sports activities during Saturdays and Sundays only.

Only residents of the barangay are allowed to play in their respective courts, no ‘dayo’ or visitors from other barangays will be allowed to play. (Ruel Francisco/PIA-Cavite)
