Update from Club President Mark Koskinen:

To follow up with our previous email, the Warriors Soccer Club Executive Board has decided that teams will not play in games this upcoming weekend, also training sessions and future games are suspended until further notice.

The Executive Board will closely monitor the actions of our local school districts (including but not limited to Waterford, West Bloomfield, Clarkston & Huron Valley) along with The State of Michigan and US Youth Soccer in our decision-making process.

Lastly, in order to protect our athletes, coaches and their families, we ask the following:

1. Please report any travel plans to your coaches. Should you travel internationally, until further notice we ask that you refrain from returning to soccer related activities for 14 days.

2. Keep coaches and staff informed of any illnesses in your family. This will help us ensure any activities that may need to be altered are done so in a timely manner.

As we move forward, if there is a time that we hold practices or plan to attend games and you do not feel comfortable attending, do not feel pressured to participate. Coaches will be understanding if you miss any games or practices based on the fact that you are worried about your players or personal safety due to the Corona Virus.

As a reminder, there are some basic rules we can all follow to keep ourselves, our players and our communities safe:

· Wash your hands frequently with soap and water (at least 30 seconds).

· Avoid touching your mouth, eyes or nose with your hands.

· Clean or disinfect all areas of your training area after every use.

· Use alcohol-based sanitizers in addition to frequent hand-washing. Carry small bottles of alcoholic disinfectant to use when hand-washing facilities are unavailable.

· During camps, training and tournaments, maintaining hygiene is extremely important. Clothes should be washed after workouts.

· Support your immune system with a varied, vitamin-rich diet with sufficient vegetables and fruit to help prevent infections. Fruit containing vitamin C, such as oranges or grapefruits, are particularly important.

· Keep hydrated and drink enough to keep mucous membranes moist.

· Flu vaccines are always recommended.

· If an athlete, coach or staff member has symptoms such as coughing, fever or general malaise, they should contact their physician, should NOT attend practice and should be evaluated by your personal physician.

Thank you,

Mark Koskinen
