Good Afternoon Parents,

As we continue into the fall season this is a quick reminder that cold and flu season will be upon us in the weeks and months ahead and as winter approaches. Practices and games for some teams may move indoors in the coming months and we want to communicate with all of our families now to share that we support what you feel is best for you and your child and your health. We encourage you to speak with a club director or your coach about your individual comfort level as things potentially shift from outdoors to indoors. It is important that we work together to keep families, players and coaches healthy.

Our goal is to continue to help prevent the spread of viruses and colds in the club and the community and ask that if your child is sick and has a fever to please keep your child at home and to consult with your medical provider as soon as possible. If children attending a Coppermine program have a vulnerable adult at home, the parent will want to consider the risk of the child bringing COVID-19 or other viruses home to the vulnerable adult as cold and flu season this year will be even more challenging. We ask that parents and guardians speak with their children about continued proper health hygiene habits. We greatly appreciate the continued awareness as coaches, players and families’ health and wellness is of utmost importance.

We have included the link to the CDC website and their suggested guidance for youth sports, young athletes and families.
