Safety Reminders


COVID-19 Protocols


  1. If someone in your household is waiting on results of  a Covid-19 test please DO NOT send your player to practice or games until you know the results of the test. This limits the possibility for exposure to an entire team or larger group. 
  2. If your player is exhibiting symptoms such as a fever of 100.4 or greater, cough, runny nose, shortness of breath, sore throat, or loss of taste or smell please DO NOT send the player to practice. These are the symptoms addressed in our daily health check on TeamSnap that is required to be completed for all players before each practice and game. 
  3. PLAYERS are asked to wear masks to the field and away from the field for every practice or game.
  4. PARENTS are asked to wear a mask if they decide to exit their vehicle. 
  5. PARENTS who are using the path to exercise WILL NOT be asked to wear a mask while exercising. 
  6. COACHES will be asked to wear masks to and from the field as well as throughout the entirety of the practice or game. If a coach needs to project their voice, they will be asked to be 10 feet or more from any players.

Return to Play Update 8/8/2020

Dear Club Membership,

We received notice from Tennessee State Soccer Association (TSSA) late on Friday eveningthat contact in training will be allowed beginning this Monday, August 10th. We are very excited to get back to playing the game we love in its truest form! That said, some protocols have been passed down from the TSSA that ALL of us need to follow to help keep everyone safe and the kids on the field playing the game. In addition to the protocols set in our original Return to Play document (no sharing water or snacks, limit carpooling, hand sanitizing, etc.), the protocols for practice below we ask to be strictly followed. 

TeamSnap Health Check: 

We are asking all players to conduct a temperature check at home before training.  If a player has a temperature of 100.4 or higher, they should not attend practice. Prior to leaving for practice, parents will need to log into TeamSnap to mark the availability of their player. When marking the availability, there will be health check questions that will need to be answered. After answering them, you will be given a GREEN CHECK (meaning okay to practice) or a RED X (meaning do not attend practice). Through TeamSnap, your coach will be able to see who has and has not completed the health check. The coaches will be instructed not to allow a player on the practice field if the health check has not been completed. We will be asking the coaches to check this on their practice days and reach out to families ahead of time when they notice the health check has not been completed. 

 

Masks:

PLAYERS are asked to wear masks to the field and away from the field for every training session. 

PARENTS are asked to wear a mask if they decide to exit their vehicle and will be around the fields. 

PARENTS who are using the path to exercise WILL NOT be asked to wear a mask while exercising. 

COACHES will be asked to wear masks to and from the field as well as throughout the entirety of the training session. If a coach needs to project their voice, they will be asked to be 10 feet or more from any players. 

 

Games:

No TCU Select/Premier Teams are Released for Games. TSSA has very thorough guidelines for games. We decided not to bombard you with the Return to Competitive Match guidelines until next week. August 17th is the date set by the TSSA for competitive matches against teams from outside of our area. As an organization, we will be monitoring how well we all are adhering to the training guidelines before we feel comfortable sending our teams to out of town games. Games/Tournaments played in other states will follow the protocols in place by that state's soccer governing body. They may or may not be as stringent as TSSA's protocols. 

 

We understand that to some; these protocols may be frustrating and even annoying. However, I hope we all can agree it is just a few extra steps to keep the kids on the field and playing the game at full capacity. We are asking our players and families to be leaders by adhering to the protocols and showing that as a community organization, we can be successful even in strange times. 


Safety Procedures

  • When a member is showing symptoms, or thinks they may have contracted the virus, their club should direct that person to be tested and follow up with their local or state health department. Players with symptoms or having been exposed to anyone with the virus should not participate in team activities until they receive a negative test result.
  • Any player that tests positive or has been in contact with a person that tests positive, should be removed from training.  That player, and all those that have been in contact with them should self-quarantine according to CDC and local health guidelines.
  • When a member has tested positive and the case is confirmed by the local health officials, all members of the club team and their families should be notified that a member of the club has tested positive.  The club will NOT identify the individual, but rather leave that communication to local health officials.
  • All members should follow local and state guidelines for contact tracing and quarantine requirements.
  • 14-Day-Quarantine: Anyone who has been within 5 feet of someone who has COVID-19 for 10 minutes or more must quarantine themselves at home for 14 days from the last time they were with that person.  These time periods do not change with a doctor’s note or with a negative test.
  • If a parent is notified that their child has been in close contact of someone with COVID-19, please follow the guidelines and quarantine them at home for 14 days.
