HEALTH & SAFETY AT SOCCER SHOTS
We have modified our curriculum and current operating procedures to adjust to local safety guidelines. You will see our coaches making adjustments to our regular routine to continue to keep safety our top priority. Coaches will also complete a mandatory health and safety course before returning to coaching.
During Our Sessions Your Coach Will: Avoid high-fives, fist bumps and unnecessary physical contact Wear a face covering if the state and/or local jurisdiction requires or recommends doing so Use rings, spots or orange cones as “home base” to keep children distanced when taking attendance Be the only one to clean up and put away equipment, like cones and goals Remind children about the importance of keeping safe distances when practicing skills Not use pinnies Sanitize equipment before and after each session and monitor their temperatures daily
Health & Safety Guidelines: Please have your child wash or sanitize hands before entering Soccer Island Parents must practice social distancing by staying a minimum of six (6) feet away from others that do not live in their household Keep your child home if anyone in your household is sick or showing symptoms of Covid-19 If participating in a Mini session (2 year old children), only one parent is allowed to accompany each participant and that adult must wear a cloth face covering
Face Covering Guidelines: Parents must wear a face covering while outdoors, unless seated and socially distanced, at least six (6) feet apart from others outside their household Parents must wear a face covering at all times during indoor sessions Children do not need to wear face coverings for outdoor sessions while they are actively participating at Soccer Shots While the use of face coverings for those between the age of two (2) and pre-K is strongly encouraged if they can do so reliably in compliance with CDC guidance on How to Wear Cloth Face Coverings, the state of Delaware does not require that any child wear a face covering before they are in Kindergarten. Any child enrolled in Kindergarten and up to eighteen (18) years of age shall wear a face covering following the rules and requirements for adults contained in the COVID-19 State of Emergency and its modifications except when doing so would inhibit the individual’s health. Parents and caregivers must supervise use of face coverings by children to avoid misuse Face coverings are not required at a business, indoor or outdoor space open to the public when engaged in vigorous physical activity but must be worn while not engaged in vigorous physical activity
Spectator Limits: Some locations may limit spectators in attendance to one family member per child or other family member-to-child ratios. In these instances, specific spectator policies will be adhered to by Soccer Shots in agreement with their partners. Parents will be notified regarding these location-specific guidelines in their Welcome Letter prior to the start of their season.
Arrival & Dismissal: We are requesting that families remain in their vehicles and approach the field as close to their scheduled start time as possible in order to provide our coaches time to disinfect their equipment and limit contact among participants between sessions. We are requesting that families leave the field at the conclusion of their session in a timely manner in order to limit contact among participants between sessions.We will continue to monitor updates from the state regarding youth sports guidelines.
