GCF Update During COVID-19

AS OF NOVEMBER 9TH:

With Jefferson County moving to Level Orange, we are suspending league operations until further notice. This will be in effect until December 9th, or until JCPH releases a new statement. Our staff is currently in communication with Jefferson County Public Health, and Governor Polis’ office in hopes we can resume operations as soon as possible. Until then, please know that we are actively working to be able to provide quality, safe programming for the youth in our community.

Currently, the Gold Crown Field House can be booked for skills and drills practices. To reserve your space, contact Dillon.

Please check each event's page on our website for more detailed information regarding COVID-19 & JCPH restrictions.

*NEW* as of 10/30/2020

Due to the most recent Public Health Order issued by Jefferson County Public Health Department on October 29, 2020, spectators are not allowed inside the Gold Crown Field House, for programs moving forward until amended by Jefferson County of Public Health.

This is obviously something we do not want, for the parents or our participants, but we take pride in maintaining good status with the Jefferson County Public Health Department. This is non-negotiable, and anyone other than players, coaches and referees will not be allowed in our facility. The only exception is one assistant coach is allowed per team. That assistant coach will be responsible for operating the scoreboard or scorebook (no exceptions). If a team doesn’t have an assistant coach, that team will be allowed one extra adult to enter the Field House with the team and they must work the scoreboard or scorebook (no exceptions).

We apologize for this inconvenience. We are firm believers that sports play an extremely important role to the mental and physical well-being of our youth. We know this isn’t ideal, but we hope that the players can continue to stay active and involved by participating in their sports season.

8/30/2020

Face coverings are required to be worn by all athletes, spectators, and patrons at all times, including when entering or exiting the Gold Crown Field House and Coca-Cola All-Star Park. You will not be admitted without one. As of 8/3/2020, all players must also wear a mask on the bench and during competition. 

We are continuing to evaluating how we can operate programs in a safe and compliant manner. Safety is our top priority and we will be diligent in prepping our facilities and working with state/local authorities to follow best practices as we resume all operations. Below is the current status of all Gold Crown Foundation operations and new safety guidelines that are implemented moving forward.

  • Facility and Program Updates
    • All Gold Crown facilities are open on a limited basis. If you have questions on your existing or future reservations, please contact Dillon. If you are interested in booking space, please also include a detailed proposal of your event. Spectators vary by event.
    • Keli McGregor Field at Coca-Cola All-Star Park: There are currently no spectators allowed in the ball park, but there are viewing areas outside of the fence that can be utilized. Spectators must abide by 6 ft. social distancing guidelines at all times and wear a face covering.
    • Both Clubhouse locations are open to existing members only. Contact Tamera for more information.
    • Various sports programs are being offered. Please check the BASKETBALL, VOLLEYBALL or GOLF page for current programs.
  • Other Important Documents/Links

If your child, or any spectator or coach, develops any symptoms of COVID-19, receives a positive test for COVID-19, or was exposed to someone with COVID-19 within the last 14 days of attending one of our events, please notify us immediately. Your information will be kept confidential.

If you have specific questions regarding a program, please contact the appropriate staff member.

Initial COVID -19 Update

April 9, 2020

We hope you and your loved ones are staying safe and healthy during these unprecedented times. As we navigate the unknown together, here is an update regarding our upcoming programs.

Currently, all Gold Crown Foundation sports programs scheduled to run in April and May have been canceled. If you previously registered for one of these events, refunds will be issued. We will shift our focus to our summer programs next month and will update all of our supporters once we have more information.

Additionally, the Gold Crown Field House will be closed through the end of April to outside users, as well as the Best Buy Teen Tech Center and The Clubhouse at Edgewater. Once we are able to open our doors again, please know that we will continue to take the necessary measures to keep people safe who enter our buildings.

How will we keep our spectators and participants safe when we're allowed to open our doors?

  • Gold Crown is adding hand sanitizer stations in the lobby and both men's and women's restrooms. We also have alcohol-based hand sanitizer available at the front desk.
  • High traffic areas will continue to be sanitized before, during and after every event. Our overnight and event cleaning crews disinfect all counter tops and door handles on an hourly and daily basis.
  • Gold Crown will continue to employ weekly antibacterial deep cleanings of our bathrooms, with a special antibacterial solution that keeps bacteria and viruses from sticking to toilets and flush handles.
  • Gold Crown will continue to pressure wash all bathrooms on a monthly basis.

Information is still fluid and we know that circumstances could change over the next several weeks so we will keep you updated on any new developments. Keep checking our website for updated information and keep an eye out for bi-monthly emails starting next week. You can sign up for those emails here (scroll to the bottom of the page and sign up for all topics that interest you).

Our goal for more than 34 years has been to provide premier and quality programming for youth in Colorado and the Rocky Mountain Region and we don't intend to change that mission any time soon. When it is safe to play, we will be here for you and your family.

      Hi Stacy,
      As of today (4/30) we are planning on running our summer camps (basketball, volleyball and STEAM). We will wait and see what restrictions are in place for June/July and make sure to abide by them all. As we know more we will share it as well.

    Hi,

    Did we ever get a refund for 3 on 3 basketball?

    Thanks

      We currently do not run a 3on3 basketball league. Our spring programs were the Spring Training Series and Gym Rats…both of which received refunds. Was your child enrolled in one of those?

      Hi Emily. That camp is run by an outside group (Jr. Nuggets) who has rented our facility. We are still navigating what our June facility operating plans will be with the City of Lakewood. I recommend checking with the Jr. Nuggets on their refund policy in the meantime.

    We were in a 3 on 3 league right before the shit down! We never received a refund? Who do I talk to about that?

      The 3on3 League is not a Gold Crown Program, they were only renting the facility, and we did not collect any revenue. I would contact the group who was running the league to get your refund.

    My son’s baseball team is in the 4th of July baseball tournament by ColoradoClassicBaseball and some of the games are at the All-Star stadium. We just heard parents aren’t allowed to come watch the game because your stadium isn’t allowing spectators. This is High School baseball and there are literally 20 people in the stands. I am pretty sure we can social distance and be responsible with such small numbers. Why wouldn’t the stadium allow small audiences in as long as social distancing can be maintained? I get it for large crowd events, but I am really hoping we can use some common sense for smaller events so we can go watch our kids play ball. It doesn’t need to be a one case fits all events.

      Neilin – We are operating on a case by case basis for all of our events based on current city and state guidelines.

      Hi – we are running the camp but the correct dates are July 13 – 16 or July 20 – 23, depending on what session you are looking for.

    My son is playing at your park on Sunday, 7.19.20 at 9:30 am. This is a collegiate baseball game between a local team and a collegiate team from Liberal, Kansas. Parents have traveled from several different states to watch them play this weekend – some as far away as south Texas. There were a total of 30 fans at their game last night – between both teams. Could you consider allowing spectators at this game on Sunday with the understanding that face masks and social distancing are required?
    Thank you for your consideration.

      Kim,
      Thank you for reaching out. Currently, Jefferson County, where All Star Park is located, has a strict maximum capacity limit on all facilities. This is the reason for limited spectators. However, to help accommodate teams/spectators in a safe manner, there are multiple viewing areas just outside the fences where you can view the games. We do require all spectators to maintain at least 6 ft. of social distancing and wear a face covering due to the current state mandate.

    Thank you Meghan for responding so quickly. We will watch from outside the fences. I know this is a hard time for everyone. Thank you for the information.

    For the basketball tournament on 8/9/2020, are parents allowed in the gym to watch their child play?

      We will assess a few days prior to the tournament and make an announcement. Our decision will be based on how many people are allowed in a physical area based on current Jeffco guidelines.

      Yes! We are allowing one spectator per player for the Fall Volleyball League. All spectators must wear a mask and abide by social distancing guidelines. Updated and detailed Health Guidelines are available on the league page.

    I am coaching both my 6th and 8th grade basketball teams in the Fall League; May I bring an Assistant, and May spectators attend? We start next Monday and Wednesday.

      Hi Coach! You should have received an email with details, but each team will be allowed 23 individuals to enter. This includes coaches, players, one volunteer scorekeeper and parents/spectators.

      Unfortunately, due to the current Jeffco Public Health Guidelines we are not allowed to run any sports leagues. We are hoping to continue the Fall Middle School League season and will let you coach know if/when we are able to do so.
