HappyFeet Soccer: Health & Safety Measures

We have returned to a number of our partner schools! We are very excited to be able to work with our HappyFeeters again. The choice of when we return is entirely up to each school’s leadership staff. We are taking a number of precautions as we return to schools and will continue to do so, as we work to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. 

Increased Safety Measures

As we return to in-person classes, we are taking the following increased precautions to ensure the safety of our HappyFeeters, Partner Schools, and Coaches. We will continue to modify these as updates are made and recommendations are provided by both the Commonwealth of Virginia and the CDC. The precautions include but are not limited to the following:

  • All staff is asked to remain home should they feel sick regardless of symptoms to ensure we are not spreading other illnesses that may cause others to become at risk for further complications should they contract COVID-19.
  • All staff that shows any symptoms of COVID-19 are required to remain out of childcare centers for at least 14 days or until a negative COVID-19 test is received.
  • Coaches are required to wear masks during the entire time they are in a school and coaching.
  • Our "Bob" soccer balls and equipment will be disinfected according to CDC guidelines after each school. Each school is given the option to keep its own set of "Bobs" during this time.
  • Coaches will wash hands before entering and leaving a school.
  • Coaches will refrain from high fives and activities that increase the likelihood of spreading disease.
  • We will remove "Stampy" and use "invisible Stampies" or stickers.
