In compliance with Government group gathering regulations and in order to conduct this Minnesota Flyers activity in a safe, effective manner that protects the health, safety, and well being of all registrants, coaches, and public at large, the following behavior standards must be met and maintained throughout any in-person training sessions the duration of this activity season:
Masks must be worn at all times and may only be removed once practice has officially begun. If we are able to begin meeting in person COACHES WILL INSTRUCT PARTICIPANTS ON WHEN TO REMOVE AND DON MASKS.
Participants will distance themselves 6 or more feet away from other participants, the coaches, and other public in the area at all times unless in motion actively practicing/running during the workout.
Participants will not touch others or their belongings, use another's water bottle, share equipment or food, or in any way physically contact any other person or belonging other than their own in order to prevent risk of contamination of self or others.
Participants will remain in control of their actions and refrain from hugging, roughhousing, or any other "playful" physical contact that can occur among friends and/or teammates.
Any deviation from this policy can place participants, coaches, and nearby public at risk. MNF recognizes the social nature and tendencies in young athletes, and as such will make every effort to educate participants should coaches see participants within reason forgetting these rules. We will also involve the assistance of any participant's family to help correct any behaviors that violate this policy. If actions that violate this policy go beyond reasonable forgetfulness or treat it negligently, the participant in violation will be removed from the program to protect the health and safety of all others.
We appreciate each participant's respectful compliance to these rules in order to conduct this season safely and effectively.
