Host Club Details

The Junior Slam Series has been working with our host Venue, K.W. Granite Club to ensure that the event can be run safely. They have developed sanitization procedures and clear policies for how participants move through the building. 

Club rules at K.W. Granite allow only 1 sweeper for every shot.  The 2nd sweeper can be involved with the shot but most socially distance from the 1st sweeper to the best of their ability.
 

Read the protocol here:

Teams will be asked to clear the building shortly after each game in order allow for preparations for the following games. Apart from in-game energy snacks, no food may be brought into the club.
