Dear Soccer Shots partners,

Health & Safety Continued
Dear Soccer Shots partners,
We hope you are staying safe and healthy! As businesses begin reopening, we are preparing for our return to Soccer Shots this Fall. We are happy to say that we were able to run a successful Summer season with about 15 of our daycares and preschools without any issues and despite the changes we have had to implement due to safety protocols, the children were still able to have a great time at soccer. While we are anxious to return to all of our schools this Fall, we are working to ensure all safety measures are being taken. As always, our focus is providing families with a quality, educational and fun soccer program.
We understand that you are also tasked with making these decisions. In addition to the modifications we are making, we also want to work with you to know and understand the guidelines for your school.
HEALTH & SAFETY ON SOCCER ISLAND
We have been diligently working behind the scenes to modify our curriculum and current operating procedures to ensure a safe return. You will see our coaches making adjustments to our regular routine to continue to keep safety our top priority. Additionally, all coaches will 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 our state and/or local jurisdiction requires or recommends doing so
Use rings, spots or orange cones as “home base” to keep children spread out when possible
Request that equipment be cleaned up and put away only by the coach
Continue to remind children the importance of keeping safe distances when practicing skills, by mentioning to “keep your distance so you don’t bump into your friends”
Avoid the use of pinnies
Use a modified Soccer Shots cheer at the end of the session
Additionally, coaches will be sanitizing all equipment before and after each session and monitoring their temperatures daily. We will do our best to use smaller group sizes and/or larger field setups to allow for the distancing of participants and observers.
We are requesting that anyone attending in-person sessions follow these guidelines:
Wash or sanitize hands before entering Soccer Island
Adhere to state and/or local jurisdiction regarding face covering requirements
Practice social distancing by trying to stay 6 feet away from others that do not live in their household
Stay home when they are sick and keep children home from soccer if they are sick
If attending a Public Mini session (ages 2-3), we ask that only one family member per child be present on Soccer Island
Again, we are focused on the health and safety of children and families. Our goal is to provide an opportunity for children to maintain activity and learning. We understand and acknowledge that not all families will be comfortable returning to Soccer Island immediately, and not all schools will be ready for enrichment programs, and that’s okay. We are here for you and your families when you are ready.
We will closely monitor all communication from the WHO and CDC, as well as local authorities, for safety updates and we will make adjustments as needed. We appreciate your patience and flexibility as we work through these uncertain times.
Please reach out to us with any questions at email@example.com
