Please Read completely! In an effort to mitigate the risk of COVID-19 and make our facility as safe as possible for our students, families and staff to return, we are implementing many new policies and procedures. These new policies and procedures will be in effect immediately and strictly enforced. As the Restore Illinois Youth Sports Programs (RIYSP), CDC and Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) guidelines loosen, we will in turn loosen or change our policies and procedures. If you do not feel you or your child can adhere to the below policies and procedures, please consider registering for programs in the future. We want to thank you in advance for your support and compliance.
