Registration for the revised Summer Camp Practices is now open. Please make sure to refer to our FAQ list below before registering.
Children and families are in great need of physical and social interaction now more than ever. The #1 priority remains the safety of our campers, families, and staff as we roll out the revised camp structure that adheres to the guidelines set forth by Marin County Health and Human Services.
Rippers Summer 2020 Camp Guidelines follow the guidelines and rules set by Marin County Health and Human Services. Complete details on COVID-19 “camp” guidelines can be found here: https://marinrecovers.com/summer-camps-youth-activities/
What are the team sizes?
In accordance with the guidelines, we are limited to 12 players in a group, or “POD”. A Pod is a group of 12 players that will play and stay together for the duration. Pods may not compete or partake in activities with other PODS. Each POD must remain exclusive and all players are prevented from participating in other “camps” simultaneously and within the set period if registered for Rippers camp/practices. Additionally, each POD will be given their own set of team equipment (balls, cones).
How will my child’s POD be formed?
PODS will be formed by age, grade, ability, and friend requests.
How will Registration work?
When we start taking in registrations, PODS will be formed on a rolling basis. For example, once we can fill a POD of 12 campers, we’ll confirm with the families and move onto the next POD.
Can I change PODS?
No. Once the first day takes place, you are locked into your POD. We can certainly try to accommodate changes to a POD before we kick off, but no guarantees given the complex nature of the registration process.
What measures will be taken to reduce the risk of virus transmission?
Take each player’s and coaches’ contactless temperature each day
Have hand sanitizer available to all campers
Players will bring their own food and water to last for the session.
No sharing of snacks, food, or water.
Team equipment will be sanitized between sessions.
Teach and reinforce hand washing and sanitizing for coaches and campers.
Other Additional Safety Measures
Temporary fencing will be in place on each field in order to keep PODS separate.
What if a child presents symptoms before or during camp?
Players must stay home if they have a temperature or are sick. Parents must notify the Camp Director as well.
If a child has a temperature over 100 degrees during check-in, the child will not be allowed to participate in camp.
Are parents allowed?
Parents are not allowed in the complex.
Can players enroll in more than one camp at a time?
No. Players may not enroll in another camp for this same 3 week period.
Does my child have to register for all 4 weeks?
Yes. Rippers has been classified as a “Sports Camp”. This means that we must adhere to a 3-week minimum for our camp offerings.
Is contact allowed?
Yes. Sports Camps are also allowed to have contact. For reference, “Outdoor Business Activities” are a different classification and are allowed to operate under a different set of rules (no contact, 6 foot social distancing, no sharing equipment or balls, no 3 week minimum, etc.).
Will there be live play and full contact?
Yes, as a Sports Camp we are allowed to have full contact. Of course we will take measures to be safe and decrease the spread of germs.
Can I carpool to camp?
Carpooling is discouraged.
Are there any rules about traveling before or during the camp?
Yes, there are. We cannot accept campers that have traveled domestically or internationally within 14 days to the start of the camp. We cannot accept campers who travel domestically or internationally while attending the camp, unless travel is due to a family emergency or court appointed requirement.
