Registration for the Rippers fall programs 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 programs 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 14 players in a group, or “POD”. A Pod is a group of 14 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 may only participate in one other camp / activity during the duration of the Rippers program. 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. Siblings will be grouped together when possible.
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 / cones 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?
Players may not attend more than two programs simultaneously.
Do players need to wear masks at Youth Programs? Are masks mandatory or recommended for physical activity?
Children over the age of 2 should wear cloth face coverings to reduce the risk for transmission if the parent and provider determine they can reliably wear, remove, and handle masks following CDC guidance throughout the day.
Is contact allowed?
Currently Sports Camps require social distancing, thus no scrimmaging or tournaments are allowed. Sports programs are permitted to teach individual skill development and conditioning.
Can I carpool to camp?
Carpooling is discouraged.
