Please read this important information regarding Coronavirus
As we continue to receive updated information regarding the Coronavirus, please communicate with your programs to safe guard our athletes and coaching staff.
Athletically speaking, areas to focus on at this point in time include:
1 - Water Bottles and Coolers - be sure and communicate with the ATC staff for the exchange of coolers and bottles for disinfecting.
2 - Equipment - reinforce with your athletes to refrain from sharing personal items and continue to clean/disinfect team items ahead of their regularly scheduled times. A quick review of water bottle usage is appropriate at this point in time as well.
3 - Health Awareness - honesty is always the best method of communication and conversations regarding player health should be a focus to ensure team safety. Better to sit out a day with a single athlete instead of multiple athletes for weeks.
4 - Personal Hygiene - washing hands frequently and thoroughly with soap and water, along with the covering of the mouth and nose when sneezing should become common practice if it is not already. Best practices should include a tissue that can be disposed of after use.
5 - Locker Rooms - athletes should be taking practice gear home each day to be laundered for their next usage on the fields. At the conclusion of each session, be sure that the locker facility is clean and organized for the custodial staff to complete their procedures to assist with control of the spread of germs.
