COVID 19 UPDATES:

DUF is working hard to keep our players, familes, and community safe! Please check back frequently for updates.  We are utilizing guidance from vernon county, WIAA, WYSA, and US soccer as we navigate this complex process. Please note: guidelines are subject to change based on this guidance.

1. We are asking that you take your player’s temperature at home before arriving at practice. If your child has a runny nose, cough, elevated temperature (100.4) or is otherwise feeling poorly, please keep your player home. Being diligent with self-monitoring is our best opportunity to help keep each other safe. If you anyone in your home has any symptoms of COVID or has had close personal contact with anyone who has, please stay home. If you are unsure of the reccomendations, please see vernon county DHS guidelines.

2. There will be no high-fives, handshakes or team huddles.

3. Masks will be required at all times when inside the GYM. This includes all players, coaches, and parents.

4.Practices are staggered to help prevent congestion. We ask that  the youth players do not come more than 5 min prior to your scheduled practice and try to leave promptly.

5 Our coaches will do their best keep players active and distanced from each other. Please work with your children at home to be sure they understand the importance of this.

6. At this time we will follow a no spectators policy to help us keep the numbers inside the GYM to a minimum. Exceptions will be handled on a case by case basis.

7. Please use good hand hygiene before during and after practice.

8. Remember to be flexible! Things change quickly and we will do our best to stay up to date with the most current information and communicate it in a timely manner.
