RETURNING TO SOCCER ISLAND SAFELY IN CHESTER COUNTY, PA
We have modified our curriculum and current operating procedures to adjust to state and/or local safety guidelines. 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 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 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 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 families attending in-person sessions follow these guidelines for the health and safety of other families and coaches:
