Florida SouthWestern State College begins its spring sports season Wednesday, and the school on Tuesday outlined its COVID-19 protocols for teams and fans.

All athletes are screened daily for symptoms, the school said.

“FSW student-athletes fill out daily screenings before leaving their dorm rooms and are cleared by our athletic trainer,” said Roy Allen, sports information director. “Each student-athlete also has their temperature checked prior to their participation in practice and games.”

Fans will be required to wear face coverings at all games and seating will be socially distanced.

Players from opposing teams will also undergo the same screening measures with clearance from their athletic trainers.

FSW’s Women’s and Men’s Basketball start their season Wednesday, Jan. 20, at 5 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. in the Suncoast Credit Union Arena.

FSW Baseball starts its season on Friday, Jan. 22 at 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. at Terry Park in Fort Myers.

FSW’s Women’s Volleyball takes the court Friday, Jan. 22 at noon and 6 p.m. in the Suncoast Credit Union Arena, and FSW Softball begins its season next weekend in Clearwater.
