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.
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 practice 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. Players are required to arrive at practice fully dressed, ready to take the field.
Sanitation and Disinfection
Before and after all programs we will require players, coaches, and staff to sanitize their hands with alcohol-based hand sanitizer, especially when entering and exiting a facility. Additionally, we will be disinfecting all shared equipment before and after use.
As we get closer to the spring we will continually update our COVID-19 infection control strategy to reflect changing public health guidelines. A full breakdown of all policies and strategies will be sent out to registered participants prior to the start of spring sports. If you have any questions or concerns regarding our COVID-19 strategy, feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org or call our office at 647-249-9466.
