In accordance with Governor Kemp’s June 29 Executive Order and after speaking with members from the governor’s office, LakePoint Sports is excited to announce we are moving into Phase 2 of our reopening plan for basketball tournaments, showcases, practices and training.

As LakePoint Sports moves into Phase 2 of reopening our campus, providing a safe environment for athletes, coaches, and families on campus, as well as our team members and our local community, remains the top priority for LakePoint Sports. It is important for all guests to know that our team went through a thoughtful and methodical process before moving into phase 2, which includes over 50 safety guidelines and incorporates federal, state, and local guidelines for athletic venues.

While on campus, we encourage you to practice safe distancing and proper hygiene at all times. Safety guidelines are posted around the campus and at LakePointSports.com/SafetyGuidelines. Adherence to these guidelines is vital to maintaining a safe environment for everyone on our campus.
