As the COVID-19 situation continues to change day by day we will be using the Bennington Public Schools return to learn plan to determine whether practices and games are safe to participate in. This closely mirrors the Douglas County Department of health risk assessment and is measured by the Covid dial. This is updated weekly, on Monday. Please note, if the risk assessment is high or severe all Bennington Soccer activities, on Bennington soccer facilities or fields, will be cancelled for that week.
We ask that everyone continue to practice social distancing when possible, along with proper hand hygiene, before practice and play. If your child has cold related symptoms, please take their temperature. If they are running a fever (100.4 or higher) they are to stay away and seek medical attention. They can still participate if afebrile.
If your child tests positive for COVID-19, they must wait at least 10 calendar days or longer (if still symptomatic) until afebrile/symptoms have improved before returning to practice/play.
If your child is exposed to someone that has tested positive for COVID, we ask that you continue to monitor their symptoms. They are still permitted to participate, per your discretion, unless they start to develop symptoms.
For more detailed information please visit the Douglas County Health Department website or the Bennington Public Schools Return To Learn Plan.
To receive cancellation information via text message or email make sure your player(s) are registered on our TEAMSNAP APP. This is the only way our club will communicate with you regarding cancellations.
Contact Leah Kinworthy, after registration closes, if you do not have a TeamSnap login at firstname.lastname@example.org
As we all know the Nebraska weather is not always “soccer friendly” and, from time to time, requires our volunteers to cancel or change events. To take the guesswork out of these decisions the BENSC Board of Directors has created weather-related parameters. The following parameters apply to the DEVELOPMENTAL LEAGUE and were developed to ensure player safety:
Developmental League WILL have practices/festivals when the following parameters occur:
Taking into account the ever-changing Nebraska weather, all weather-related decisions will not typically be made until an hour before the start of a session. Due to limited space at the soccer complex, we cannot always guarantee that a practice will be able to be made up – but we will do our best to extend the season by a week or two if the weather & sunlight allows.
All weather-related decisions will be communicated via Team Snap.
Competitive teams (8U & older) & Winter/Summer Academy sessions will still be at coaches discretion and do not fall into these parameters. As always the BENSC decisions are secondary to your parental discretion regarding your child(rens) safety. No child will be penalized for missing a practice or festival due to weather.
If you have any questions on this policy, please feel free to email the BENSC board at email@example.com
