For this program we will only be taking 13 players/registrations for each group to follow with the guidelines of the State for indoor use.
 All players will go through the health screening process when they arrive. No kids with any sickness symptoms will be allowed that day. 

 Kids & Coaches will be scanned for temperature upon arrival.  Any person registering a temperature of 100.4 or above will not be allowed in. If your child is not feeling well this day please do not bring them to practice
Kids & Coaches will wear masks at all times.

Parents & Guardians must wear masks at all times when on site for drop off and pick up.

Parents & Guardians will not be allowed to stay in the building during their child's practice.
If you do not think your child is able to stay during practice by themselves without you present please do not register them

Any family traveling to areas not deemed "green" by the State of Vermont may be subject to a 14 day quarantine which would prevent them from attending recreation programming for 14 days after returning home.

We will have a sign in sheet for contact tracing and for emergency contact if we need to reach out to you during practice times

PHASE TWO: Effective Monday, January 18, 2021, organized youth leagues and school-based sports programs (serving individuals age 19 years and younger) may resume full team-based practices including the following activities:
• Drills involving incidental contact; and
• Team-based scrimmages.
Organized youth leagues shall:
• Require all participants to complete a health check, including temperature screening, before arriving at team-based activity.
• Require masks / cloth face coverings to be worn at all times.

  •  Anyone with a documented medical or behavioral reason for not wearing a facial covering should not be required to wear one.

  • • Sports leagues and organizations should prioritize non-contact activity, such as conditioning and drills where physical distance can be maintained, and give strong consideration to implementing modifications to reduce intensity of face-to-face contact and promote physical distancing.
    • During times when athletes are not actively participating in practice or competition, all athletes are expected to maintain a physical distance of at least six feet between individuals. Teams must ensure adequate physical distance between players on the sidelines or benches and should structure team meetings to limit congregation.
    • Prohibit spectators; only “key personnel” – players, coaches and staff – are allowed to attend team-based activities.
    o Guardians must wait in their vehicles and to avoid socializing with other guardians at practices.
    o For 10U level athletes, prior to the start of team-based activity and immediately following the team-based activity, a maximum of one guardian per participating family (masks required) is permitted to enter the practice facility briefly (15 minutes or less) in order to ensure their athlete is dressed and equipment is properly secured/removed. Guardians are encouraged to be efficient and are not permitted to remain in the facility during the practice. Six foot spacing must be maintained between members of different households. In an effort to allow coaches/instructors to maintain active management of health and safety protocols during the team-based activity, they may designate a single volunteer safety manager to stay inside the facility during practice to help with young athletes who may need extra assistance with equipment, to use the bathroom facilities or get the attention of a parent waiting outside in an emergency.
    • Prohibit congregating before, during, and after practice; promote an “arrive, play, and leave” mentality. Players and coaches should arrive for practices dressed to play to the maximum extent practicable.
    • Prohibit spitting or expulsion of bodily fluids of any sort on the playing service (field, court, ice, etc.), or anywhere in or around the playing service or in the facility.
    • Prohibit sharing of water bottles.
