Hello Empire Soccer Club Parents,
We are monitoring the developments of (COVAID19) in southern California and are working closely with local authorities as updates are coming out every minute/hour. We anticipate more information coming out very soon at which point in time will update everyone.
Practices will continue until further notice for our Club Side. We ask teams to refrain from pre/post game or practice huddles where hands are all placed on top of each other. Any player showing signs of illness, is excused and advised to remain at home. Please, let your coach know and the absence will be excused.
Here is a link to the NCAA tips for athletes and
personnel: https://ncaaorg.s3.amazonaws.com/ssi/infect/CoronaAthletes.pdf. We encourage all our athletes to read and put into practice their recommendations.
