Soccer Buddies will be required to follow the safety Covid Protocols and respond to all communications on Team Snap which will include weekly attendance, weekly covid questionnaires, and any updated information about the upcoming sessions.  Soccer Buddies are expected to arrive by 9:30 am and stay until the end of the session, after all equipment is collected and stored properly.  This year we are requiring all Soccer Buddy volunteers meet for a mandatory brief pre-season meeting on March 26 at 10 am at the Elm Street Field.  We will send a reminder on Team Snap once you've registered.  Be sure to include your email so that you receive all messages.
