  2. Players will not be allowed to attend a Fusion West event if they have been out of the country within the past 14 days.

  3. Players and coaches will not be allowed common physical greetings, such as handshakes or hugs.

  4. Players and coaches will maintain a distance of 2 meters apart at all times when not partipating in drills.

  5. Players will not be allowed to share equipment.
