As always, our number one commitment is the safety and enjoyment of the children under our care. The National Academy of Athletics is continually monitoring and following protocols set in place by the Center for Disease Control, Aspen Institute, State of California, and local County guidelines.
As doctors and scientists learned more about the contagiousness of COVID-19, how it spreads and how to stay safe, we knew we had to find a way to get kids out of the house and be able to experience in-person sports camps. My team spent countless hours researching, learning, and listening to both the Center for Disease Control and local health officials.
We then carefully created safety protocols that would allow kids to be able to participate in programs that were in-person, safe, and fun. We’ve been able to run sports programs now successfully for the last few months, following our protocols, we have seen tremendous success in happy kids, happy parents, and our Community Partners are loving that we are putting recreational sports and athletic programs back into their communities.
Our protocols are mandatory- small groups, age-specific, consistent participants, and the same coach teaching each group. We have a checklist of questions the parents are required to answer and supply all the sports equipment which is sanitized before and after each use. We’ve developed new programs that allow kids to run, play, laugh, and have fun while keeping safely distant from one another. All kids are required to wear a mask for indoor programs and mask mandates will vary for outdoor programs depending upon city and county guidelines.
