Camps Update Regarding COVID-19

We hope you’re all safe and well in these trying times. We’re excited to get back outside and playing the Beautiful Game (and we’re sure you are, too!) As we return to play, here are the steps we are taking to ensure that our campers, staff, and community are safe:

  • We are phasing in our return to play. That means we have postponed our June 8-11 camp to July 6-9. This also means that we will be offering Small Group Sessions and Individual Instruction during the month of June. This will allow us to ease back into play, while keeping a close eye on how things are progressing in our region and in our community.

  • Safe practices, such as 6 feet between players, amended curriculum, non-contact drills, fask mask usage while not playing, and disinfecting of equipment will occur

  • We are asking out campers and families to help us practice healthy habits by doing the following:

    • Parents do not leave the car and/or wear masks while dropping off and picking up their children

    • Campers wear masks any time while not participating in a activity (this includes during drop off, during breaks, and during pick up)

    • Wash hands and disinfect your soccer equipment before and after training

    • Campers practice a “no-hands” policy during training, meaning campers are not to touch soccer balls, equipment, or other surfaces with their hands

    • Bring your own soccer ball, water bottle, and hand sanitizer

    • No Congregating Policy for campers or parents in parking lots, at drop off zones, at entrance / exit areas of facility, or before or after training session

    • Players are not allowed to carpool to and from practice

    • Campers with fevers or other symptoms or that have been in contact with someone with COVID-19 or similar symptoms in the last 14 day sare not permitted to practice

    • Please arrive no more than 10 minutes early to your scheduled session, and please promptly leave after your session has ended

While we are all ready to get back to “normal”, we believe it’s important to make careful, thoughtful decisions in starting camps back up, so we’ll do so with the well-being of campers and staff in mind. We are monitoring the current situation very closely. We are seeking and following guidance from local and national health and sports governing bodies, such as the Center for Disease Control and US Youth Soccer. Please note that, while we are taking precaution against COVID-19 infection, there is an inherent increased risk of participating in group activities due to COVID-19 until a vaccine or a cure is found.

If you have any other questions about camps, please send us a message at camps@chattanoogafc.com.

These are trying times, but we are determined to stay safe and make the best of them!

Well keep you updated, so stay tuned. In the meantime, check out the awesome Virtual Training drills that the CFC Academy have created.
