COVID-19 Policies:

Important Updates (3/2/21) - Contact Activities will now be allowed. See "return to play updates" below.

Safety is our priority. It’s important to our organization that we do whatever is in our ability to put the safety of our participants and our staff above all else. It’s also very important in this unprecedented time to try to get our kids back out on the field to safely participate in a fun and active environment with their peers.

While we understand that restrictions have been loosened and individuals may follow other rules inside their own homes, we ask that you help us keep our families safe and allow us to continue providing a fun activity for kids in our community by committing to follow our COVID policies outlined below.

If you have any questions, please direct them to our Company Director.

Check-in / Check-out - To avoid crowds, we are asking parents to remain in their vehicles for check-in / check-out (for players over 8). One parent may accompany a child for check-in, if that child is under 8 years old. Parents are permitted to stay and watch sessions but must be away from the activity area and socially distanced from other parents. We will be asking participants to use provided hand sanitizer when they check in, after any bathroom visits, and as needed throughout the day.

Screening Participants - It is our collective responsibility to limit the spread of COVID-19. To help keep our participants, their families and our staff and their families safe, we require parents to screen their child(ren) at home for symptoms of COVID. Each day of the program, before leaving your home, the following screening must be conducted -

  • check your child(ren)’s temperature. If a temperature above 100.4 is present, please keep your child and any child residing in your household home and contact our office.
  • Screen your child(ren) for symptoms. The below syptoms are not a exhaustive list of sypmtoms. Please check the CDC for up-to-date sypmtoms. According to the CDC, people with these symptoms may have COVID:
      • Fever or chills
      • Cough
      • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
      • Fatigue
      • Muscle or body aches
      • Headache
      • New loss of taste or smell
      • Sore throat
      • Congestion or runny nose
      • Nausea or vomiting
      • Diarrhea

    If your child is displaying any of these symptoms, please keep them home along with any other child in your household that is registered for our program. Please contact our office.

    Carpooling - Due to the highly contagious nature of this virus, we strongly discourage carpooling / sharing rides with other participants. In the event that a participant is required to stay home due to a COVID symptom, all participants who shared transportation with the individual will not be allowed to attend the program. We will not be able to provide credits or refunds for any family that is affected due to carpooling with another participant.

    Staff - All of our coaches will be wearing face masks for the duration of the session. All coaches are required to take their temperature and screen themselves before each session. Any staff member who displays a potential COVID symptom or has a temperature at or in exceedance of 100.4 is required to stay home.

    Training Activities - All activities will follow State and County guidelines, which may include no-contact activities, or limited contact activities, depending on where we are as a region in the reopening plan. To help facilitate this requirement, please speak with your child beforehand to make sure they understand. The participation of each child will help us ensure that our Organization is meeting the guidelines required.

    Parental Assistance - Parents often step in to help their Kinder Kicker during group classes. To keep everyone safe, while assisting, please wear a mask. We appreciate your understanding.

    Equipment - Participants who are 6 years old and older and who are not part of the Skills After School program or a Futsal program should bring their own ball to the session. We will supply all other equipment for the program. If your child does not have a ball, or forgets to bring their ball, we will provide one for them. Equipment is disenfected between sessions. All players will have their own personal space to place their belongings for the duration of the session.

    Groups - Group sizes will follow the State and County recommendations, and may be modified to 6, 8, 10, 12, or 15 players, or any combination of, depending on where we are as a region in the re-opening stage. Players will work with the same group of players for the duration of the session. Mixing of groups will only be allowed as State and County restrictions allow for this.
