What is REACH doing?
How can you help?
As we navigate through these uncertain times together, we want you to know that you and your child's safety is our top priority. While we know interactions have been limited lately, we also know how important it is for our children to have fun. Our goal is to open our sports programs as safely as possibly while still allowing children to enjoy all team play has to offer.
REACH Programs will be following the CDC recommendations on how to return to youth sports and the precautions to take. The following outlines these steps:
Children will be asked to bring a water bottle to all practices and games, drinking fountains will not be used
Staff will disinfect shared equipment between use by different people on a daily basis
Facilities will be disinfected on a daily basis
Practice pennies will not be used & uniforms will not be shared
During times when players are not actively participating in practice or competition, players should be concentrating on maintaining social distancing
Temperatures will be taken on a daily basis for anyone who enters the facility
Parents or guardians will be asked to social distance in the stands
Any nonessential visitors, spectators, volunteers, and activities involving external groups or organizations will be asked not to attend
Hand sanitizer will be readily available in the gymnasium
Face coverings will be worn by coaches, youth sports staff, parents, and spectators as much as possible.
Individuals, including coaches, players, and families, should stay home if they have tested positive for or are showing COVID-19 symptoms.
Individuals, including coaches, players, and families, who have recently had a close contact with a person with COVID-19 should also stay home and monitor their health.
Help us teach and reinforce hand washing with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
If soap and water are not readily available, hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol can be used (for staff and older children who can safely use hand sanitizer).
Do not allow spitting and encourage your child to cover their coughs and sneezes with a tissue or use the inside of their elbow. Used tissues should be thrown in the trash and hands washed immediately with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
Help us teach and reinforce the use of cloth face coverings. Face coverings are not intended to protect the wearer, but rather to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19 from the person wearing the mask (who may not have any symptoms of disease).
Pay attention to signs posted. (At entrances and exits, and in restrooms) that promote everyday protective measures.
