COVID-19 & Fall Outdoor Soccer:

Here are the measures that will be taken to encourage social distancing & sanitation protocols for the playing areas throughout the season. CDC guidelines for youth sports, along with some additional measures per the HMPR Athletic Department, will be followed.

  • We will only play against Hope Mills teams because playing against teams from other geographic locations increase the risk of COVID-19 exposer. We will not travel outside of Hope Mills & will not have teams from other locations at our fields. 
  • All parent & spectators will be required to remain outside of the playing fields. Playing fields will be limited to players, coaches, fields supervisors & officials. 
  • There will be hand washing stations located at the entrance & exits of playing fields; all players & coaches will be required to wash their hands before & after games. 
  • We will supply extra benches so players can spread out while they are not playing.
  • We will supply hand sanitizer on each playing field, as well as sanitizer wipes for equipment.
  • All coaches & field supervisors will be required to wear a mask. It will not be mandatory for youth players to wear a mask, however, this is up to the discretion of the parent/guardian.
  • There will be no unnecessary physical contact such as high fives, handshakes, fist bumps or hugs.
  • All coaches will be given these guidelines that they must follow during practices & games.

Hope Mills Parks & Recreation is looking forward to this upcoming season. We take pride that we will be one of the only Parks & Recreation Departments in the area to take these measures to provide as safe a season as possible.
