All visitors to the MAC will be required to abide by the following temporary policies:
Get a temperature reading at the door from a non-contact thermometer. Any person with a temperature exceeding 100.3 degrees will not be permitted to enter the facility.
Sign in at the front desk in the event health officials need contact tracing information.

Wear a mask at all times when in the facility
Sanitize hands when entering the facility
Only bring disposable water bottles to the facility. Reusable containers will not be permitted.
The MAC recommends all visitors to do the following:
Leave cellphones in the car and/or do not use them when in the facility. Cell phones are a known carrier of germs and are in contact with your face throughout the day.
Bring a disposable water bottle or be prepared to purchase one (water fountains will not be available).
Do not come to the facility if you feel ill in any way. Fevers are only one possible symptom.
If you have a compromised immune system consult with your physician before participating in any events held at the MAC.
Bring your own equipment. Do not share equipment.
Steps we are taking:
During our initial phase of opening we will strictly enforce the following:
All employees will wear masks.
All visitors will receive temperature checks.
We will not exceed 25% capacity.
Hand sanitizing stations have been installed throughout the facility.
There will be no walk-in clients for the immediate future.
Team practices, clinics, and individual/group instruction only.
We will constantly be cleaning the facility and high traffic areas.
Due to the governor’s new orders the MAC will be requiring all spectators and participants to wear masks at all times. Anyone participant that feels a shortness of breath, faint, is having trouble breathing, or feels the mask is compromising their health in any way will be permitted to remove the mask.
*Any patrons with medical conditions that exempt them from wearing masks will still be permitted to enter the facility.
We believe it is safe to get back to work and play. We look forward to seeing you!

The MAC provides a 12,000 square foot indoor basketball facility with six baskets and two regulation high school courts.
The playing surface is a seamless, durable, and highly shock absorbent poured urethane floor that reduces the risk of injury to athletes playing on the surface. It is the best alternative to hardwood floors on the market.
