FREE SOCCER CAMPS
The Sanneh Foundation is offering free soccer clinics this summer. Clinics are for youth ages 5-12yo. Topics covered include basic skill training, speed and agility development, as well as overall health and fitness. Participants receive daily soccer instruction, a FREE t-shirt – and each participant will receive a FREE soccer ball at the start of camp that is their ball to take home and keep.
Participants should bring:
· Appropriate foot wear
· Shin guards
· Water/sport drink
· Any medications the athlete/camper may need
Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, we are changing the format to help insure everyone’s safety while at camp. Some of these steps include: weather policy, groupings, social distancing and hygiene.
Camp this year will be broken into age-specific sessions. Each session will be restricted to the following ages:
July 6 - 9th
July 13 - 16th
July 20 - 23rd
July 27 - 30th
August 3 - 6th
9:00-9:45am = Grades Pre-K – 1st (Age Guidance: ages 5-7yo)
10:00-10:45am = Grades 2nd – 3rd (Age Guidance: ages 8-9yo)
11:00-11:45am = Grades 4th – 6th (Age Guidance: ages 10-13yo)
1:00-1:45pm = Grades Pre-K – 1st (Age Guidance: ages 5-7yo)
2:00-2:45pm = Grades 2nd – 3rd (Age Guidance: ages 8-9yo)
3:00-3:45pm = Grades 4th – 6th (Age Guidance: ages 10-13yo)
*We would like to accommodate as many kids as possible with the limited spots that are available this year, so we ask that you please be considerate to other families when signing-up for multiple camps.
- We will limit the number of campers per session to 30-40 campers MAX (*30 at most, 40 for those w/ considerable space)
- There will be NO on-site registration(s) taken this summer.
If there is any type of rain in the forecast for the day, we will cancel that day of camps – unfortunately. (*no gathering in buildings in off-chance we’d have to seek temporary refuge)
SOCIAL DISTANCING & HYGIENE
Social distancing of six (or more) feet will be implemented and maintained between staff, coaches, campers and parents at camps through the following engineering and administrative controls:
CHECK-IN PROCESS & AREA
- The check-in queue for each camper will have clearly-visible field markers – properly spaced to insure social distancing.
- At check-in, each camper will receive their own:
- Pinnie (colored training bib) – pinnies are returned and washed in HOT WATER every night
- Ball – balls will be pumped while still in the plastic bag, a single lead coach will write each campers name on their own balls. It is their ball to keep and take home. Parents are asked to sanitize their child’s ball before bringing to the field the next day.
- After check-in, each camper will be directed to their own Personal Playing Area (PPA)
- Personal Playing Areas (PPAs) are clearly-marked 10ydx10yd grids, that will serve as each campers’ personal training workshop area.
- Camp curriculum consists of movement-based activities, both with and without the ball – that will insure each campers’ safety and adhere to proper social distancing standards.
- Coaches will demonstrate, instruct and monitor the activities at a safe distance.
- Campers should bring their own water bottles.
- Campers will be given adequate time for water breaks.
- Due to COVID-19, we will NOT be handing out water bottles, nor have big jugs for campers to fill/re-fill.
- At the end of the training/camp session, campers will be dismissed in sequence by their smaller groups. There will be no large gatherings of campers.
