 ACS RETURN TO ACTIVITY GUIDELINES

Club

  • Share immediate and clear communication concerning any COVID-19 cases

  • Collect communicable disease waiver prior to activity.

  • Share training protocols with coaches, players and families.

  • Be sensitive and accommodating to players and families who may feel uncomfortable with returning to play.  

  • Coach

  • Masks are to be worn during practice and games.

  • Ask each athlete if they are experiencing any signs or symptoms of illness.  If they share any concerns of feeling ill or having been in contact with anyone who has the virus, ask the player to go home.

  • Keep the players’ gear/water spaced by at least 6 feet between players.

  • No sharing water.

  • Maintain a log of all players that were at each practice..

Parent

  • Masks are to be worn when maintaining social distance of at least six feet is not possible.

  • A signed communicable disease waiver is now part of the training protocol. If you are not comfortable with allowing your child to return to play, wait until you are ready. 

  • Talk with your player and ensure they are symptom free - check their temperature before training. If your child has been exposed to anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19, or has exhibited symptoms of the virus, within the last 14 days, please keep them home.  

  • Notify ACS immediately if your child becomes ill for any reason.

  • Do not assist the coach with the equipment.  

  • It is highly recommended to stay in your car during training.  If you choose to leave your car, please remain off of the field and adhere to social distancing requirements.

  • Provide your child with individual sanitizer.

  • Wash and clean players’ clothing and equipment before and after each training.  

Player

  • Masks are to be worn during practice and games.

  • Talk with your parents about how you are feeling before training and have your temperature checked.

  • Wash your hands before and after training - avoid touching your face.

  • Do not share equipment or water with other players.

  • Avoid all contact with other players, including high fives, hand shakes, hugs…

POSITIVE COVID TEST PROTOCOL

The approach we are providing is as follows (information gathered from several professional sources and CDC guidelines):

1, If the player has COVID and tested positive they cannot return to play till 10 days symptom free.

2. If the team trained with this player within a two day period of the player testing positive, then all players and coaching staff that had contact need to quarantine from the team for 10 days or test negative 5-7 days after contact with that COVID Player.

3. If a family member tests positive, then the player should quarantine for 10 days or test negative 5-7 days after contact with the COVID positive family member.
