It is essential that parents disclose all important medical information during registration to ensure that our coachs are aware of an pre-existing injury or illnesses. 

What is the check-in and check-out process for the program?

Upon arriving at the facility, we ask that you and your child wait in your car. A coach will come to your car to check in your child(ren). During the check-in process, we will take your child's temperature and ask if he or she has experience any COVID-19 symptoms or exposure. If your child's temperature is 100°F or higher or your child has experience COVID-19 symptoms or exposure, he or she will not be able to participate in the program.

Can I stay and watch my child during the clinic or camp?

Viewing restrictions differ per clinic and camp and will be communicated. 

What happens if there is inclement weather?

In the event of lightning, we will take the players to a safe location and wait 20 minutes after the last lightning strike before returning to the fields. Due to social distancing guidelines and limited access to indoor facilities, we will remain cautious and communicate any cancellations. All communication will be done via email. 

How will cancellations be communicated?

If the program must be cancelled for any reason, the Youth Director will send out an email to all parents.
