    • Sanitize all equipment and your hands before and after each session
    • Monitor your temperature daily
    • Report any symptoms immediately
    • Avoid high-fives, fist bumps, or any form of physical contact with children and other families
    • Carry hand sanitizer in your pocket to discreetly sanitize before and after any contact may occur
    • Wear a face covering during non-cardiovascular activities.
    • Use rings, spots or orange cones as “home base” to keep children spread out
    • Request that equipment be cleaned up and put away only by coach
    • Continue to remind children the importance of keeping safe distances when practicing skills, by mentioning to, “keep your distance so you don’t bump into your friends”
    • Avoid the use of pennies
    • Use a modified cheer at the end of the session and use social distancing.

     We will also do our best to use smaller group sizes and/or larger field setups for games to allow for the distancing of participants and observers.

     We are also requesting that families that attends in-person sessions follow these guidelines for the health and safety of other families and our coaches:

    • Wash or sanitize hands before entering the vicinity of the NFL FLAG OKINAWA ACTIVITIES

    • Practice social distancing by trying to stay 6 feet away from others that do not live in their households
    • Stay home when they are sick and keep their children home from football activities if they are sick

    We understand this is a lot of information, but our top priority is keeping everyone safe.
