Winter Sports & Event protocols effective December 1st, 2021
All Participants "Athletes, Coaches, & Volunteers" Must be vaccinated to participate in any indoor sports or events. Copy of vaccination must be on file prior to participation.
There are new COVID RELEASE & WAIVER FORMS that ALL athletes will need to have on file also. If you have a current medical on file...please print off and sign pages 3-4 only. If you are getting a NEW physical done, this release will now be a part of the form. Bear with us, things keep changing! Please send all forms to me or the Harrisonburg office ASAP.
To all athletes that signed up for fall sports, soccer, soccer skills & bocce that have not gotten your paperwork to me please know that time is running out. If you have not talked to me and made other arrangements with me please remember that you can not participate without an updated medical, release & COVID forms signed. Please do not show up to practice without it as you will not be able to take part.
We are strongly encouraging everyone to read SOVA's return to play protocols and procedures. We will be adhering to these guidelines. It is our best intentions to have a safe and fun return to activities. We will have safety rules that must be followed. We will have masks, hand sanitizer & wipes on hand for use. Starting out we may be taking temperatures (with hands free thermometer).Masks are not required at this time for fully vaccinated athletes but it is required that non vaccinated athletes wear a mask and social distance when not in vigorous play, per state guidelines. Please understand that this may be the way we have to do things in order to have sports. Please be patient and kind as we will work to get you on the fields as fast as possible. No one is allowed on the fields except for coaches and athletes. We also ask that you do the daily self check list that is attached before you come to practice. If you answer yes to any of these questions please stay home. PLEASE DO NOT COME TO PRACTICE IF YOU ARE SICK OR ANSWER YES TO ANY OF THE QUESTIONS!
To all parents and caregivers, please do not drop off an athlete. We just simply can not do all we have to do and keep up with your athlete too. There could be numerous reasons that we would have to call practice early and you need to be there to get your athlete.
Please understand that this is as new to us as too you, if we all work together we can make this a great year for the athletes.
