This safety policy is how our organization is handling the COVID-19 crisis. We’re dedicated to keeping both your children and our team as safe as possible, while still working to keep the community active and having fun.
Throughout our nation’s pandemic crisis, we continue to take measures to ensure that our coaches are equipped to keep our little players safe. Additionally, we’re committed to providing top quality sports education and fun experiences to your community just as we’ve always done. We’re excited to return to playing in a safe, responsible way by implementing creative safety measures. Below are some of the ways we’re keeping everyone safe in our programs.
We’ve modified our curriculum slightly and trained our staff on health and safety guidelines endorsed by public health officials. Additionally, we’ve started focusing heavily on our Kido Local private programs, which allow your kids to participate in sports in a more private setting.
During activities, coaches will:
- Not give fist bumps, high-fives, or any other unnecessary physical contact
- Wear a face covering if their state/province and/or local jurisdiction requires or recommends doing so
- Keep players spread apart by 6 feet or more whenever possible to avoid the spread of germs
- Thoroughly sanitize all sports equipment after each session
- Encourage fellow coaches and players to wash and sanitize hands, as well as practice other safety guidelines recommended in their respective states
Coaches will sanitize all equipment before and after each session and will monitor their body temperatures daily. When possible, we encourage smaller group sizes and/or larger field setups to allow for the distancing of participants and observers.
We request that families observing Kidokinetics sessions please abide by the following guidelines to help keep participants and coaches safe:
- Abide by state or local safety guidelines regarding a face covering
- Wash or sanitize hands before entering the session area
- Maintain a 6 foot distance from all those not living in your household
- Stay home and keep your children home if anyone is experiencing cold or flu-like symptoms. Those with fevers, sore throats, coughs, or similar symptoms should not attend Kidokinetics events.
We are closely monitoring all communication from the CDC and WHO, as well as local authorities, for safety updates. As we learn more, and if needed, we’ll adjust our operations accordingly.
As always, our goal is to provide an opportunity for children to enjoy Kidokinetics with friends and family, while in a safe environment. We’ll continue to keep families informed on the latest safety operations of the Kidokinetics team.
Your trust in us is greatly appreciated! With your patience and adaptability, we’re certain we’ll all make it through this health crisis stronger, and more connected than ever before!
