COVID-19 Response

MCAA Families,

We hope this communication finds you and your loved ones safe and healthy. We want to thank you for your patience as we navigate these confusing times.

We have taken painstaking efforts to develop safety protocols to allow us to safely provide your children with a 2020 Cheer and Football season. As many of you may know, our practices and games are held on Moon Area School District property. We will be following all recommendations set forth by the school district and PA Department of Health pursuant to our field usage agreement.

The PA Department of Health has released a stepped approach to returning to play for youth sports. Currently, spectators are not permitted to attend practices and games. We have been in constant contact with the MASD Athletic Director. Our anticipation is that the Department of Health will reevaluate their guidelines and release an addendum to these recommendations in regards to spectators. We are working on contingency plans that would circumvent this, such as alternate venues for games.

We plan to move forward with our season with optional conditioning starting Wednesday, July 15 at Hyde Elementary from 6-8pm. Conditioning will be open to any child who wishes to attend and workouts will be held every Wednesday throughout the end of July.

Our official practices will begin August 3 from 6-8pm at Hyde Elementary. We will be putting out dates and times for equipment handout shortly. The Cheer Commissioners will be sending out information in regard to cheer practices. Every child (cheer and football) will need to bring their own labeled water bottle to practice. We will have plenty of hand sanitizer for each squad/team. Equipment will be sanitized after every practice and game.

Our COVID-19 Response Policy is available for your review here. Each participant will be required to have a COVID Liability Waiver signed by their parent/guardian. We are also asking that a Daily Health Assessment Form be completed prior to each practice. These forms should be printed out, completed, and turned into your child’s head coach prior to practices and games. We have also put together a brief FAQ handout to answer some immediate questions.

We understand that some of the new policies may seem like a major inconvenience; however, we have to take every effort to provide a safe environment for all participants and their families. Our goal is to give our children a little piece of normalcy back, while doing so in a safe and sensible manner. We look forward to seeing everyone on the football field very soon. Please reach out to us at [email protected] with any questions or concerns.

Respectfully,
MCAA Board of Directors
