For outdoor summer 2021 Practices we will be implementing the following:

All staff, coaches, parents, and players must comply with NJDOH “Guidance for Sports Activities” which may be viewed here:

https://nj.gov/health/cd/documents/topics/NCOV/COVID_GuidanceForSportsActivities.pdf

 

A site director will be appointed for each session. The site director will be responsible for making sure that coaches and participants comply with NJDOH guidelines.

 

Back by popular demand, the drop off and pick up line for Cheerleaders will be utilized again this summer. They will be staggered and in Two different locations at the field.  Flag, Pre Clinic will arrive at the playground lot at 5:45.  Clinic and SPW will arrive at 5:45 in the Temple lot.  5:55 Pee Wee and JV will arrive in Temple Lot.  Followed by Varsity at 6:05.

Temple lot is a drive thru drop off.  Parents remain in your cars.  Pull into the lot staying right go around lot to drop off child from passenger side into grass area.  We will be directed.

Pick up will be the same procedure with times as follows.

  • Flag, Pre Clinic 8:00  Playground lot

  • Clinic, SPW  8:00 Temple Lot

  • PW, JV  8:10 Temple Lot

  • Varsity 8:20 Temple Lot

Families with multiple children reach out to your squad Advisors to make arrangement that work best for your situation.

 

We will continue to use Jot Form for players and staff as our online Covid19 screening questionnaire prior to each practice/game. An

Participants who have had close contact with someone who has had a known or suspected case of COVID-19 should stay home for 10 days after the date of close contact. We will accept a negative PCR test after 5 days to return to play quickly but not the rapid test.

 

Should a participant be diagnosed with COVID-19, they should immediately contact the club directors. You must have signed clearance from your healthcare professional to resume activity OR the original, dated “order” to quarantine with the specified duration so compliance with that “order” can be verified.

All participants are required to be cold/flu/COVID-19 symptom free for 3 days prior to participation.

 

Individuals should maintain a distance of at least 3 feet between themselves and others (not including family) while on site.  We have made marks on the fields so the kids have visual reminders and a guildline for spacing.

 

At this time the CDC is recommending summer practice spectators mask up and social distance of 3 feet. Parents can remain in their cars or utilize the park grounds away from the practice area.  Parent who stay must remain on the blacktop track or the outside grass area. 

Players should bring their own water bottles filled and ready to go. Do not share bottles.

Players and coaches will be reminded of proper hand hygiene and encouraged to bring and use their own hand sanitizer before and after practices. Hand sanitizer will also be available on site.  Each Advisor will have a supply and we will have some at Temp check tents.

 

Coaches and staff should wear face coverings and social distance of 3 feet. This will be reviewed again based on CDC guidelines when the season begins. 

 

Current CDC guidelines recommend players should not wear face covering during periods of physical activity during high heat outdoor practices, but are encouraged to do so during “in between” times (back and forth from the car, etc). This will be reviewd again based on CDC guidelines when the season begins. 

 

Here’s a checklist of items that players will need for practice:

  • Check your temperature before practice (no more than 2 hours prior).

  • The online Jot Form health screening needs to be filled out and submitted before each meeting. 

  • Hand sanitizer in bag.

  • Water bottle filled and ready to go, or two.

  • Face covering for down time (back and forth from the car, etc). Players will not be wearing face coverings during the actual practice, though. This will be reviewed again based on CDC guidelines when the season begins. 

  • All of your normal gear...shirt, shorts, sneakers, socks, hair up with bow.
