Due to the current situation in the state with COVID-19:

Training groups will be smaller in numbers and focus primarily on individual ball skills rather than team play. 
 
As part of our plan to combat the virus and ensure a safe training environment we will maintain the following guidelines:

  • The water fountain will be closed. Please be sure to send a full water bottle with your child and instruct them not to share.
  • All equipment used by coaches or players will be cleaned at the end of each session. 
  • We recommend players bring their own ball, however we will have clean balls available should they be required. 
  • Training group sizes will be reduced to no more than 9 players (plus the coach) to stay in accordance with groups of 10. 
  • Players who display symptoms at training will be asked to go home. 
  • Training sessions will be staggered slightly to avoid increased foot traffic around the fields.
  • Restrooms will be open at Cottonwood.

Members who wish to participate must be in compliance with state and local guidelines and follow the recommended health and safety policies set in place. As part of our registration process we will require that a compliance and liability waiver is completed prior to participation. 
 
PARENTS:  
Please educate your children about social distancing protocol and remind them ahead of practice. If your child experiences symptoms of the virus or has been exposed to someone with COVID-19 they must stay at home and not come to practice. When watching the training session you must maintain a safe distance from the field and other families in order to reinforce the importance of social distancing of 6 feet. We request that parents and spectators be limited (less is better) in number. Please do not allow children not playing to run around. They need to be supervised at all times.
