Covid-19 Update to Parents:

Dear Parents,

First and foremost, we hope that you and your loved ones are safe and healthy.  We have received questions from the community about if and how COVID-19 will change this year’s athletic season.  We know this outbreak has been stressful to many and recognize that exercising and participating in activities like sports can be a healthy way to cope with stress and connect with our community.  After careful thought and planning, we are excited to let you know that we plan to resume youth sports while following CDC considerations to protect players, families, and our community.

The health and safety of our athletes, staff, and volunteers remain our highest priority!  Below, you will find a summary of actions we are taking to help ensure we are lowering COVID-19 risk as much as possible while also allowing our athletes to play.  We are:

  • Intensifying cleaning and disinfection by cleaning goals and disinfecting equipment between use as feasible.
  • Reducing physical closeness or contact between players when possible such as allowing players to focus on building individual skills (like dribbling and juggling the soccer ball), keeping children in small groups, and staggering arrival and drop off times, putting signs and using cones and lines on the playing fields to designate that coaches and players stay 6 feet apart, discouraging unnecessary physical contact, such as high fives, handshakes, fist bumps, and hugs and replacing these with a modified cheer.
  • Postponing travel outside of our community by not playing other schools (such as Milton Hershey done in previous years).
  • Promoting healthy hygiene practices such as hand sanitizer before and after practices and games, encouraging children to cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or to use the inside of their elbow, and reminding them to not spit.
  • Requesting that coaches, youth sports staff, officials, and parents wear a cloth face covering (athletes undetermined as of yet)  Last fall it was okay for athletes to not wear a mask on the soccer field as they played.  We will update you as soon as the CDC sends recommendations for athletes this spring.  As a reminder, cloth face coverings should not be placed on young children younger than 2 years of age, anyone who has trouble breathing, or is unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the cover without assistance.
  • Limiting the sharing of equipment. Example- this year, players are encouraged to bring their own soccer ball if possible.  If they do not have access to a soccer ball, PARPC will provide soccer balls to the coaches.
  • No spectators at practices.  At practices and games there may be no more than 6 spectators per athlete at the field who must also social distance 6 feet from each other and the soccer field and wear a mask at all times.  Please watch our website for any updates.
