  • Player screenings must take place prior to participating in trainings/games.

  • When arriving at the field all players and coaches should wash hands at the hand washing station.

  • Players and coaches should bring their own hand sanitizer and use it several times during training.

  • Players bring their own labeled water bottle.

  • Players should refrain from bringing their own balls to practice.

  • Avoid carpooling to training.

  • Players should keep their bags separated from others on the side of the field.

  • Players must wear masks when not actively participating in the game/training itself. If players have a medical condition (asthma) parents must provide a form indicating that they have been diagnosed with that condition.
