Murrieta Surf Youth Camps
Implementing the Return-to-Play Guidelines will require a cooperative relationship between the Club, Coach, Parent, and Player. While the Club and Coach must create a safe environment, the parent must make the decision for their child to return to play. If, as a parent you are not comfortable in your child’s returning to play – DON’T. And finally, the players must be responsible to adhere to, and respect the social distancing requirements and contact guidelines that have been established.
