RYSI Football will be following the guidelines put out by the NJ Department of Health (NJDOH),  Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Pop Warner. The public health data on which this document is based can change frequently, we will check regularly for updates.

GUIDANCE FOR PRACTICES:

  • Players should stay home when experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 or residing with someone experiencing symptoms of COVID- 19. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/symptoms-testing/symptoms.html

  • Players that have traveled to any of the States listed on the NJ 14 day quarantine should check the following website for quarantine recommendations: https://www.nj.gov/health/cd/topics/ncov.shtml

  • A google COVID 19 screening survey will be sent to all team members prior to the first practice. The survey must be completed 8 hours before practice on the day of every practice or game. Survey answers will be reviewed by the head coach. Any “yes” answers to the survey will require further review before a player is allowed to attend practice. 

  • Players and Coaches with COVID 19 symptoms or exposure to COVID 19 will need to quarantine for 14 days before returning to practice or provide a doctors’ note for clearance to return to play. 

  • Coaches will also complete the google pre-screening survey daily and have their temperature taken prior to practice.

  • We will be using a car line for drop off and pick up.  Detailed drop off and pick procedures will be sent out prior to the 1st practice.

  • Drop off times will be staggered.  Please refer to emails on your player(s) specific drop off time.

  • Players will need to check in wearing their mask and have their temperature taken before exiting the car. Anyone with a temperature over 100.4 will not be allowed to participate. 

  • Social distancing rules will be in place and we ask parents to remain in their cars at drop off and pick up. If a parent needs to get out of their car, social distancing rules must be followed and they must be wearing a mask.

  • No spectators at practice. Details regarding spectators at the games will be sent later.

  • Players must bring a bag with plenty of water, their own hand sanitizer and all of their personal football equipment (mouthguards, gloves etc.)

  • Players will not be allowed to share water or hand sanitizer. 

  • Congregating before, during, and after practice will be discouraged.

  • The type of contact found in football can vary greatly and can be adjusted to meet local distancing guidelines.
