HEALTH & SAFETY ON SOCCER ISLANDReview the adjustments our coaches will be making during your scheduled season and stay informed on our modified safety procedures related to Covid-19. As always, our focus is on providing your family with a quality, educational, and fun soccer experience!
During sessions our coaches will:
Avoid high-fives, fist bumps, and unnecessary physical contact; Wear a face covering if our state and/or local jurisdiction requires or recommends doing so; Use rings, spots, or blue cones as “home base” to keep children spread out when possible; Continue to remind children of the importance of keeping safe distances when practicing skills; Avoid the use of training jerseys/pinnies; and Use a modified Soccer Shots cheer at the end of the session
