Acknowledgment of the transfer shall be done by a sign-in/sign-out sheet or direct and verbal communication with the coach.
 
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCE will players be allowed to leave the facility and the Holy Spirit Campus without being accompanied by their parent, guardian, or known adult.
Players are to remain INSIDE the gym until transfer of supervision has been completed.
