What new cleaning procedures and policies are in place?

  • Persons dropping off and picking up participants will remain in their vehicles.
  • Hand sanitizer stations have been increased in Northside Church and participants will wash their hands or use hand sanitizer before activities or eating.

Are you going to require social distancing for classes?

· We recognize that it is difficult to have children maintain social distancing with any regularity. To minimize participant interaction, participants will be grouped by age and experience and remain in those groups and separated from other groups.

Will my child be required to wear a mask?

· Yes, only during transition from the location of pickup to the restroom, water fountain, and during pick up time and exiting the building.

· No, children are not required to wear a mask inside of class.

· Staff, instructors will be required to wear masks at specific times depending on the nature of their work.


Thank you for your continued support as we work together to provide a safe and healthy environment for all those who participate in Northside Church Sports & Recreation Ministries. We look forward to seeing you in person soon!
