Team America is open again including summer camps. Our camps are kept to small numbers of players. Coach Jonny runs the camp. Coach Jonny has completed his Red Cross first aid certification and is tested regularly for Covid. When a player comes to camp the player must wear masks, use hand sanitizers as directed and have their temperature taken before entering each day.
Still the only thing important is that each family keeps their family safe during these difficult times. Therefore we have important safety protocols to follow.
All programs will require players to have temperature taken and use hand sanitizers when arriving to an activity. Masks are to be worn when arriving at practices, meetings or games. When a player is actively training or playing in a game no mask is required. However, when off the pitch masks are required as well as social distancing. All staff and volunteers are required to wear masks when social distancing is not possible. Parents and spectators when on the sideline or near players must wear masks or stay in their vehicles.
Our club has worked out a special mask supply vendor in Virginia. We are able to help our players acquire disposable masks for 40 cents each in packs of 50. That means players can obtain a 50 pack to least a couple of seasons. Coaches will have a supply of masks to use for emergency needs.
If any Team America family is having a very difficult time please reach out for help. Email Larry Dunn at LCD8326@aol.com and he will reach out to the rest of the club. We are never sure where help is needed or where help will come from but it does not mean we cannot try. EFFORT-PERFORMANCE-RESULTS.
Please, during these trying times, try to remember that if you have to choose between being right and being kind, choose being kind.
We are a player development focused youth soccer club based in Northern Virginia, just south of Washington, DC.
Our philosophy is rooted in the understanding that soccer is more than a fun game, it's a magnificent tool for teaching kids and helping them grow. In our programs we encourage creativity, critical thinking, the use of both feet, and a focus on giving the best effort possible and not worrying about the results. We teach players that making mistakes is simply a part of learning, and without mistakes, a player is not pushing their skills or improving.
One game ends, another begins. There are always more to play. So we give our very best and don't worry about the results of any individual match. We love to play, have fun, and make magic with the ball.
Each and every adult participating in any capacity with our players or teams, whether as a volunteer or a team paid coach or trainer, is subject to the KidSafe background check program. Each person working or volunteering in a Team America program must have their background check done for each seasonal year.
