TFA Best Practices and COVID-19 Update

We are actively monitoring the currently evolving situation and will be sharing information and club directives in a timely manner. The health and safety of our players, families and coaches remains our utmost concern. Current U17 Boys Elite coach, Dr. Carl Fichtenbaum, has offered to serve as a resource for our families for any general inquiries. Please feel free to contact him: [email protected]tfacincinnati.com

As of now, we are canceling all club training, matches and scrimmages thru 3/15/2020.  As we learn more, we will keep communication flowing in an appropriate cadence thru all our regular channels.

TFA Guidance on Health and Safety

The COVID-19 pandemic has important implications for continuing our soccer programming in a safe and responsible manner.  TFA has developed some recommendations and guidance to promote the safety and welfare of the players, coaches and families.  Please look for further guidance and information from local and national authorities. Make sure you check with your league officials on guidance for any games or competitions. 

If you, or anyone in your household, are ill, please do not attend training sessions or games.  If you have any of the following symptoms: fever, sneezing or cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, nausea/vomiting or diarrhea, please seek appropriate medical attention and avoid attending training or games until 7 days after you have recovered. 

During any soccer related activities:

- Players should not share water bottles, equipment, or clothing. 

- Please avoid shaking hands, high-fives, hugs, fist bumps at all soccer related activities.

- Coaches should lay down and pick up equipment to avoid unnecessary contact.

- Pinnies used at training should be placed in a separate bag and washed after each use.

- Before and after training or games, coaches and players should wash hands carefully with soap and water or using hand sanitizer for 20-30 seconds (sing the “Happy Birthday Song” to time it).
