RETURNING TO SOCCER ISLAND SAFELY IN NEW CASTLE COUNTY, DE
Soccer Shots Families,
Before our fall season begins, we are making sure our coaches are equipped and our families feel informed on our modified safety procedures. As always, our focus is providing your family with a quality, educational, and fun soccer experience!
HEALTH & SAFETY ON SOCCER ISLAND
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. 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 Be the only one to clean up and put away equipment like cones, goals, and soccer balls Continue to remind children the importance of keeping safe distances when practicing skills Not use pinnies Use a modified Soccer Shots cheer at the end of the session that does not involve a group huddle Unfortunately, not give out the Soccer Shots' stamp as they've done in the past
We are requesting that families attending in-person sessions follow these guidelines for the health and safety of other families and coaches:
