• No spitting, clearing of nasal passages, handshakes, high fives, fist bumps, chest bumps, sharing snacks or water bottles. Water bottles should be labelled with the name of the owner.

• At this time GAMES ARE NOT ALLOWED. If we get to a point that games or scrimmages are allowed, we will let you know right away!

• Please no loitering before or after training session. No interacting with players or coaches not in group while on the field.

• Because our league requires parents/chaperones to be present on the field for the purposes of assuring that clients/minors are safe, this number must be kept to the lowest amount possible. The parent/chaperone must remain masked and maintain 2 meters physical distance from other parents/chaperones.
