We have been diligently working behind the scenes to modify our curriculum and current operating procedures to ensure a safe return. You will see our coaches adjusting 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 our sessions your coach 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, by mentioning to “keep your distance so you don’t bump into your friends”
  • 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.

It's more than just fun (although that's our favorite part!). Our expert-approved curriculum focuses on the whole child. Look at some of our program benefits!
