Bring your own ball for warm-ups and bring plenty of sunscreen. Bring plenty of food and drinks (water or sports drinks). Chairs and blankets can make in-between match time more comfy. This park has lots of shade so canopy's are not necessary to bring. Umbrellas would be good for score keepers to sit under while doing their duties.
**Each Youth team MUST bring hand sanitizer with them. No hand sanitizer No play.
**Due to the COVID 19, we are limiting each court to 5 people on a court at a time. 2 teams that are playing and 1 for score keeping and refereeing. It goes without saying, if ANYONE in the household is not feeling well, please do not have your child show up and play. You will receive a complete refund if this is the case. We want the kids to have fun but stay safe!! We will be checking temperatures of all players before they will be allowed to participate.
We also ask that only 1 spectator come with the youth players as we are trying to keep the numbers to a minimum.
We are requiring that all players use hand sanitizer before and after each match. The game balls will be wiped down with sanitizing wipes before and after each game.
For teams that are not playing or refereeing it is imperative that you spread yourselves out through the park near the courts. There is plenty of room for everyone to maintain the required 6 feet of distance. There are bathrooms near each court as well.
