Boggs Barrett will be adhering to all CDC guidelines. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued guidance, “Considerations for Youth and Summer Camps,” and an easy to follow decision tool delineating factors youth camp operators should assess in determining whether to open and guidelines for operating camps safely during the COVID-19 pandemic. All staff working at Boggs Barrett will review the CDC guidance materials to assist with making decisions prior to opening.
Here are our anticipated protocols for camp starting on July 6, our begin date of camp this summer and when NJ limits on the size of group gatherings has increased, but social distancing remains in place. Campers are encouraged to work out prior to camp in order to develop related fitness for camp activities and reduce the risk of injuries.
The Boggs Barrett Camp will require the following;
Prior to attending camp each day, each player must check his or her temperature at home, and refrain from attending if they have a fever (≥100.4 degrees F).
Prior to each day’s session, staff must obtain verbal confirmation from each participating player that:
The player has not had any close contact with a sick individual or anyone with a confirmed case of COVID-19.
The player has not had a documented case of COVID-19 in the last 14 days.
The player is not currently demonstrating or suffering from any symptoms.
Any player reporting or demonstrating symptoms of illness at any point will be removed from training (or prohibited from training) and should seek guidance from his or her physician before attempting to return to training.
Training groups will not exceed one team of players and one coach (up to 24 total individuals).
Players will avoid all physical contact with each other.
All coaches and players will maintain a social distance of at least 6 feet to reduce the risk of disease transmission
Players and coaches will remain in the same training groups during throughout the week of camp.
Teams will be split into two groups. Each group will train in a designated area, 30 feet from the other group
Individuals will be required to maintain social distancing guidelines during arrival and departure from training. Drop off and pick up points will be different to minimize potential interaction with other groups.
Other individuals in attendance must stay in their cars.
In the event of an injury, staff will assess and facilitate management of the injured individual in accordance with proper first aid management. Family members may participate in injury management as necessary but other players should maintain proper social distance.
Training areas will be separated and specifically designated such that groups will not touch the same surfaces. Benches and other regular non-playing equipment will not be used..
Players will be required to bring their own equipment (ball, hand sanitizer, water bottle, towels, etc.) such that no equipment is shared between players. Players and coaches may contact another individual’s soccer ball with their feet but should not contact it with their hands.
Surfaces that may be contacted and shared by players will be minimized and will be disinfected before and after use. Equipment used by staff (cones, for example) will not be handled by players or other attendees and will be disinfected after use.
Face mask use by players and coaches will be in accordance with local guidelines. Face masks will not be required during physical activity.
Bathrooms will be disinfected every 30 minutes at Mercer County Park.
