Due to COVID-19, the Youth Sports programming has been altered to meet safety standards:
Participants must wear a face mask during check in, check out, non-playing times, and at the restrooms. They are encouraged to wear a face mask while playing.
Staff will be required to wear a face mask while interacting with others.
All clinics will use individual-based and partner drills and activities only. No scrimmaging or game play.
The clinics will provide frequent cleaning procedures to disinfect hands, surfaces, and equipment.
Only one parent/guardian per participant is allowed to stay onsite during the program. They must wear a face mask and follow the physical distancing protocol of 6 feet or greater. No siblings or other children allowed. Any additional spectators must stay on the outside gates/perimeter of the facility.
Youth Sports administration has the right to change these policies at any time based on CDC, government and department policies and recommendations.
