  1. All camps will run outdoors.
  2. All camps will run as stable group with a max of 12-kids/group. Each group will have 1 camp director & 1 assistant coach.
  3. Campers shall not move from one group to another.
  4. If more than 1-camp runs in the location, each camp will have its own area and will not mix with another camp at any time.
  5. Coaches shall remain solely with 1-group of the same 12-kids for the entirety of the camp.
  6. Coaches shall wear face covering in areas or spaces where staying six feet apart from others is not feasible.

  8. All campers will have their own set of equipment that will not be used/touched by any other campers for the entirety of the week.
  9. All equipment will be sanitized with an EPA-registered disinfectant at the end of each day. Coaches will transport equipment to and from camp each day. Equipment will be clearly marked with each childs name to ensure it does not get mixed up throughout the week.
  10. All campers will be assigned their own sports ball at the beginning of the day which will only be uesd by that one camper. Each day all sports balls will be sanitized with an EPA-registered disinfectant.
  11. Any child showing signs of illness will be sent home.
  12. Any child who does not listen to the coaches and/or follow the social distancing guidelines will be sent home.
  13. Kidz Love Soccer Forms
    • All rosters and any waivers will be sent, signed, and managed electronically. The Friday prior to camp, each parent will be e-mailed the following documents. All documents must be signed digitally prior to checking in on Monday Morning.
    • Kidz Love Soccer Waiver
    • 14-Day No Sickness Acknowledgement Form - stating that no member in their family has been sick in the last 14-days
    • Child Information Form  allergies, emergency contacts, approved sign-out contacts, health concerns, etc.
    • We will be replacing our standard sign-in/sign-out with a new contact free check-in/check-out. Parents will check in their child from 6-feet away verbally acknowledging/confirming the information listed on the documents listed above which the Camp Director will have access to.
  14. Children must have their temperature taken as part of our daily check-in process. Kidz Love Soccer will have a Non-Contact Infrared Forehead Digital Thermometer available at every camp.
  15. All campers will be instructed to follow strict hand washing protocol. Before snack breaks, children must wash hands for 20 seconds with soap and water or use hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
  16. Kidz Love Soccer staff will constantly remind participants throughout each camp to not touch their face, mouth or eyes. Participants will also be reminded to cover all coughs and sneezes. Parents will be notified if this becomes a problem at camp.
  17. No High fives, fist bumps, hugs or any form of camper-to-camper or camper-to-coach contact are allowed.
  18. In addition to a water bottle, snacks and sunscreen, parents should provide hand sanitizer and a towel to limit face touching. All campers must be taught to apply sunscreen by themselves.
  19. All program facilities must have access to running water and soap. The size of the facility will dictate how many camps (groups of 12) we can run at each location in a given week. Each camp will have lots of space to spread out.
  20. At Risk Groups should not drop-off/pick-up participants, participate in programs or instruct programs. At Risk Groups include persons who are older, pregnant, or who have underlying health conditions, including those with compromised immune systems or respiratory conditions like severe asthma.
  21. In the event of an injury or incident where the coach and child must be within 6-feet of one another, both coach and child will wear masks and gloves. Since the players will not be in contact with one another, the risk of injury is low. The most common example of an injury/incident will be a Bee Sting or a skinned knee.
  22. Coaches will wear gloves and masks while handling and setting up all equipment. Coaches and campers will follow the Local Health Services guidelines for face covering during camp.
  23. We will be staying up to date and following all of Local Health Services guidelines for Childcare Facilities. We will update our Social Distancing Safety Protocols as needed throughout the summer to comply with current Health Services Guidelines.
