Special thank you to all those who gave towards our campaign this year. There's no doubt that your contributions will truly make a difference in the lives of our youth athletes.
As part of Phase 4 Of Restore Illinois Plan, The Revitalization Phase of the Restore Illinois public health approach to reopening the Illinois economy includes: larger gathering sizes, additional businesses reopening, and increased capacities. This means that effective as early as September 1st, 2020, Austin Comets Athletics will begin offering low-risk contact sports programming for the Fall.
The Illinois Board of Education and Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity released their All-Sports Policy as guidance for all youth recreational sports, including, but not limited to: travel clubs, private leagues and clubs, recreational leagues and centers, and park district sports programs.
Our priority is to make sure all participants, coaches, staff members and parents and guardians are maintaining safety by engaging in social distancing, frequently washing their hands, and using face coverings, as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to stop the spread of COVID-19. While we continue to monitor any changes in the state’s guidance for social activity, it is our goal to continue to provide service to youth in Schaumburg, Hoffman Estates, Barrington, Palatine and the Greater Chicago area.
This fall starting in September, we will continue to offer the Charles F. Massie School of Tennis program, as well as our new eSports program. Our coaches are developing plans to make sure we are in compliance with all IDH and CDC regulations. We have also released our own ACA IL Phase 4 "Return to Play” policy to all coaches and athletes. Please take the time to read through this policy. If you have not received a copy, please reach out to our office at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (847) 238-2208 to speak with one of our representatives who can help you receive a copy.
We’re going to do our best to provide the safest practices for our athletes so that coaches, staff members and parents and guardians enjoy all that Austin Comets Athletics has to offer!
