In alignment with the guidelines provided by the State of Maine, the Pitch is adopting a staggered approach to reopening. The information below will be updated as additional information and resources become available. The Pitch is adhering to the CDC's recommendations for gyms and facilities. Please see link below to read the detailed cleaning and operational protocols we are following at the Pitch.
In an effort to provide a safe and compliant atmosphere for our athletes to train and compete, we ask that only the athletes and coaches be allowed in the turf area of the building during our programs to reduce the amount of people inside the building.
Parents of participants may accompany their child into the building, but we ask that you remain in the lobby or mezzanine area upstairs and follow the six foot distancing guideline from those not in your family. Only one parent per child is allowed at this time.
FACE MASKS are required at all times, both on and off the field.
PREPAY for all programs before arriving on our website or over the phone before programs begin.
ENTRY & EXIT
Please enter through the central lobby doors and exit the side lobby doors. We have staggered class times to minimize the amount of people in and out of the building. Please arrive as close to your start time as possible and exit the building once your activity has finished.
SANITIZERS are available at the entry to the building.
BATHROOMS are limited to 2 people at a time. Please come dressed so that you do not need to change.
Benches have been spaced and marked to allow for social distancing while you change your shoes before entering the turf area. Please do not linger on the bleachers or common areas where crowds tend to form.
WHAT WE ARE DOING
We are committed to playing a proactive role to mitigate the spread of Covid-19 and will remain vigilant regarding procedural updates. Our turf field and facility are receiving special cleanings at increased intervals.
We are limiting the total number of people in our facility at one time.
Our coaches and employees will be wearing masks, are washing their hands frequently, practicing social distancing, and have received specific training on Covid-19 protocols.
WHAT YOU CAN DO
The single most effective way to combat the Coronavirus is to wash your hands with soap and water or sanitize with a 70-80% alcohol based sanitizer lotion. Anyone with a fever, cough, or other symptoms must stay home.
