Our COVID-19 Update and Response
Tornadoes Soccer Academy (TSA) appreciates that our players and their families, like our committed staff, have been doing their part over the past few months to keep our country safe. Despite the uncertain times, we also realize that players are excited and ready to get back on the field when it is safe and appropriate.
TSA will be ready once youth sports and camps are allowed to continue. We are all IN THIS TOGETHER and we want our players and their families to know that we will be ready.
Players and parents choose us because they have grown to expect the highest standard of quality, organization, and soccer programing in an exciting soccer environment. As leaders in our field, we feel it is our responsibility to set a new standard.
Our focus, during this pandemic, has shifted to being the leaders not only in soccer but, now in health and safety. Over the past month, with help of experts, TSA has created protocols and plans that will be in place at every one of our programs once youth sports and camps are allowed to resume.
TSA is committed to going above and beyond expectations and will exceed the guidelines set by our governments for safety.
Our programming will look slightly different as we work to put protocols into place to ensure we adhere to federal and state guidelines. Below you will see a working list of protocols and measures we are taking. Please note, we are continuing to adopt and revise protocols.
Leaders In Quality & Now The Leaders In Safety
TSA is reducing enrollment for each camp program and implementing safety and screening protocols to ensure a safe environment for our players. Reducing the number of players, we accept will allow us to properly implement our safety protocols (Many of which are below). Limits will be based on CDC Guidelines and our ability to put into practice Federal and State Guidelines.
Temperature checks will be conducted daily upon arrival, for all players’ coaches and staff members. Any individual that has a high fever will not be allowed entry with no exceptions. If a player is not allowed to enter because of temperature checks then a refund will be given for the time missed.
SANITATION AND COOL ZONES
TSA is creating "Cool Zones" to ensure the health and safety of our players. In order to enter "Cool Zones" all players, coaches, and staff members will be required to sanitize their hands with CDC approved sanitizer. Additionally, all items that are allowed to enter "Cool Zones" must also be sanitized. For example, the soccer field will be a designated "Cool Zone." The players ball, and water bottle must be sanitized upon entry into the "Cool Zone." Designated areas that meet federal and local guidelines will be provided for players to leave items that are not allowed into "Cool Zones."
NEW ALTERED HYDRATION STATION
During an intense training session our players will need to take a break to drink or refill their water bottle. TSA is creating a new look hydration station to ensure players can rehydrate in a safe and controlled manner.
CLEANING OF COMMON AREAS
Any common area used by our players will be monitored and cleaned with CDC approved cleaner multiple times a day.
REDUCED GROUP SIZE
The size of groups will be reduced to ensure smaller groups and adhere to current CDC, federal and state guidelines.
