Understandably, many families have questions and concerns about returning to sports this spring. We take the health and safety of players, coaches, staff, and community members very seriously, and have put together a list of COVID-19 safety precautions below. These policies were created in conjunction with public health experts from Sick Kids, Johns Hopkins, and Toronto Public Health.
All policies below have been created out of an abundance of caution to reflect the changing COVID-19 situation. As of July 6th, all sessions will focus on skills training and small-area drills, with no formal gameplay. Once Ontario moves into phase three, this protocol will be revisited.
Health and Safety Screening
Each day prior to programs, all participants will be required to undergo a health and safety screening conducted by their parents, including a symptom checklist, temperature check, and travel screening. If any participants present symptoms identified by the health and safety, they will be required to stay home from programs and refer to Toronto Public Health for next steps. Similarly, all coaches and staff will undergo weekly health and safety screenings, including a symptom checklist, temperature check, and travel screening.
In order to prevent unnecessary gathering and large groups, all sessions have strict “drop-and-go” rules. Parents are required to drop-off their kids and return at the end of practice for pickup, and not hang around in the parking lot, outside the field gates, or outside the facility. Participants are required to arrive at the session fully dressed, ready to begin.
As Public Health messaging evolves we will be continually updating our COVID-19 infection control strategy to reflect changing guidelines. If you have any questions or concerns regarding our COVID-19 strategy, feel free to email email@example.com or call our office at 647-249-9466.
