2 TO 3 YEAR OLDS
Soccer Shots Mini is a high-energy program introducing children to fundamental soccer principles, such as using your feet, dribbling and the basic rules of the game. Through fun games, songs and positive reinforcement, children will begin to experience the joy of playing soccer and being active.
Parent/guardian participation is required for Mini programs so group sizes are limited to nine (9) children per cohort. For health reasons, only one parent/guardian can participate with each child.
Your child's health and safety is our #1 priority. That's why we've developed a series of protocols that allow for a safe return to play. We've been carefully working to meet every requirement of the Oregon Health Authority's and Washington State Department of Health's guidelines for our programs, as well as keeping up to date with State and local mandates. Soccer Shots Portland continues to monitor all updates to the guidelines and requirements to ensure we are up to date. Our policy was last updated: Oct 1, 2022.
We've modified many aspects of our operations and curriculum and will be asking you to make some modifications too. We'll be doing it together in these key ways:
Soccer Shots is required to follow the current health mandates and guidance in both Oregon State and Washington State. Masks are not required for all participants in Soccer Shots outdoor programs. Masks are optional for coaches (effective June 1, 2022).
SMALL GROUPS THAT DON'T MIX
The #1 thing we are doing to reduce risk is maintaining small groups of 12 or less. This means, all season long, your child will be playing with a maximum of 11 other players. Locations with multiple cohorts will not mix players. By maintaining what the state and CDC call a "stable cohort" everyone's risk drops dramatically.
CLEANING, SANITIZING & DISINFECTING
We'll be taking more steps to ensure players, coaches and equipment are safe for play. We'll be washing hands before and after class; we ask that enrolled families commit to coming to the field with washed or sanitized hands and washing or sanitizing hands after class too. Together, we can help keep Soccer Island safe.
From increasing social distance, to removing all touch and high fives, our curriculum has been modified at a national level by experts we don't have direct access to here and then vetted and adjusted to ensure it meets all state and local guidelines.
TRUST & COMMUNICATION - FEVER OR COUGH? STAY HOME
It may or may not be COVID, but if a caregiver, a participant or a coach develops a symptom that the Oregon Health Authority or Washington State Department of Health has flagged, we're not allowed to have you on the field. This means we're all trusting each other. Coaches will perform a health check before every class, for every participant - including themselves.
COACH TRAINING, INFO & RULES
As role models who teach children to follow rules, we'll be following the rules of the Oregon Health Authority, Washington State Department of Health, and our national franchise system. We've attended dozens of webinars and consulted with medical, sport, and governmental experts to put in place protocols that help ensure the health and safety of those on the field.
Together we can reduce the risk in our programs and in our community while still getting so many of the emotional, social, psychological and physical benefits of Soccer Shots.
