Safety continues to remain our highest priority for our campers and staff during these tough times. We are on schedule to host camps at University of Tampa for the summer of 2021. Last year we were not permitted to host camps at UT and we needed to turn to an alternate location which was Cinco Soccer. We want to express sincere thanks to Keith Rados and Cinco Soccer for giving our campers an outstanding experience. We will hold one camp at Cinco Soccer this Summer in early August of 2021 and have space reserved for other weeks if COVID-19 restricts our location plans for 2021.
We recommend parents take advantage of the early bird pricing that is offered for the day camps as we may have restrictions to capacity numbers. At this time our max capacity is 140 campers for youth day soccer camps held at University of Tampa. If that number is to decrease due to COVID-19 in the Tampa Bay area we will hold space for campers by their registration date. Once a camp closes due to capacity numbers, we will not be permitted to add campers.
**Refunds are not guaranteed, and all refunds will have a $35.00 service charge that will be taken out of refunds.
**The Resident (over-night) & the College ID camps will be held @ University of Tampa.
Stay safe and we look forward to seeing you this summer.

TESA COVID-19 GENERAL RECOMMENDATIONS:
General hygiene practices to reduce the risk of spread of infection:
The following practices will be reinforced within our soccer organization and community to mitigate the transmission of any communicable disease.
Avoid touching your face.
Frequently wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
Cover mouth and nose (with arm or elbow, not hands) when coughing or sneezing and wash hands afterward.
Wear a face mask or covering when outside if you have any symptoms of upper respiratory infection.
Frequently clean commonly used surfaces (doorknobs, for example) with an antiseptic cleanser.
Avoid contact with other individuals (shaking hands, for example).
Maintain a distance of 6 feet between you and others.
Stay home if you feel sick and contact your health care provider.
TESA Rules for Campers, Staff, and Parents:
All Sun Block needs to be applied by parents of children prior to entering the facility at the start of each day camp. Staff will not be permitted to apply sunblock on athletes at the camp. Parents need to make sure children know how to properly apply sunblock on their face in the event it is needed during the camp hours.
Parents are not permitted to enter the facility.
Temperature checks will occur prior to campers & staff entering the facility. We also ask that parents check their child’s temperature prior to leaving home. If a temperature is at 100 F degrees, they should not bring their children to camp. This will also be a requirement for staff.
Campers will remain with their groups for the week to reduce the risk of contact with other campers/staff. Siblings if in similar ages will be grouped together.
Players with fevers or other symptoms are not permitted to practice.
The Athletic Trainer hired for camp will have the final say of players participating in camp/s.
Parents drop off – parents must be in masks.
No Congregating Policy for players or parents in parking lots, at drop off zones, at entrance/exit areas of facility, or before or after a training session.
TESA Coach/Staff Requirements:
Wear PPEs (masks) at all times.
Limit equipment brought to practice, disinfecting all equipment before/after use.
Do not allow players to share pennies, other equipment, or water bottles.
Encourage players to bring their own soccer balls to training.
Require parents to confirm their child is symptom-free before attending the training.
Report confirmed cases of COVID-19 to member organization immediately and cease training/activity.
Compliance with all local and state guidelines.
