The follow document outlines the Hanover Soccer Club’s “Return-to-Training” Plan. All protocols and procedures are expected to be followed at all times.
Procedures and Protocols:
A schedule is created that allows adequate space for the physical distancing (i.e., at least six (6) feet in between individuals) and is staggered as appropriate.
Small groups/teams of the same players and volunteers are created
Identify adult staff members or volunteers to help remind players and parents/guardians of social distancing.
Parent coaches, organization volunteers, and parents/guardians must wear cloth face coverings.
Face coverings should be worn by players on arrival, bathroom breaks, and when leaving the facility.
Limit occupancy in the restrooms.
All athletes, coaches, and staff are to bring their own water, drinks, and food to practice activities.
Parents/guardians are encouraged to leave after dropping of their child. If parents/guardians do stay, observation will be from pre-designated areas and must wear face covering and ensure to adhere to physical distancing standards.
The township will post signage in highly visible locations with reminders regarding social distancing protocols, face covering requirements, and good hygiene practices.
Parents are to ensure their child has hand sanitizer, disinfecting wipes, or other sanitizing materials. Coaches are to provide their own hand sanitizer, disinfecting wipes, or other sanitizing materials.
Prior to training start time, parents/guardians will check their child for the following symptoms and complete an online questionnaire (form to be emailed to each team and parent):
Fever or chills
Shortness of breath / difficulty breathing
Muscle or body aches
Loss of taste or smell
Congestion or runny nose
Nausea or vomiting
In the event that any of the symptoms are present, or a temperature reading of 100.4F or higher, it is recommended the player should remain at home, and follow the steps outlined by local authorities.
Players travelling from virus hot spots should not attend event (training or game) until their 14-day self-isolation period is completed.
The follow will follow response and reporting procedures as recommended by the Township of Hanover. See Appendix A.
The above protocols will be sent to all participants’ families. See
