Phase 1 Sports Sessions: Information Sheet and Plan for Operation

Dear Junction Place Sportsplex Holiday and Summer Camp Families,

Thank you for your patience as we adjust and plan in the ever-changing world of COVID-19. As of Monday, May 11, 2020. We are planning to open our doors as scheduled for the Summer All Sports Camp @ Junction Place Sportsplex and for New Orleans Jesters Youth Soccer Academy Indoor Camps. We are following and monitoring for changes guidelines established by the Center for Disease Control (CDC), Louisiana Department of Health and Safety, Parish President Cynthia Lee-Shang, and the JEDCO Back to Business Plan. 


  • Two Separate All Sports Sessions to be held the weeks of May 18-22 & May 25-29
  • Each week will see a Morning Session 8:45 AM-9:00 AM Arrival- 11:45 AM-12:00 PM Dismissal Afternoon Session12:45 PM-1:00 PM Arrival- 3:45 PM-4:00 PM Dismissal


  • Boys and Girls Ages 5-12 Years Old

How: Groups and Spacing

  • Weekly registration will be the ONLY registration option. While we will not mandate every participant show up each day, we will NOT substitute any registrations during the week, regardless of availability. That is to say, the group of participants will be same on Friday as it was on Monday, with the exception being participants who do not show up on a given day. 
  • Participants will be divided into 3 individual groups of no more than 10 participantsTo best practice restrictive contact practices, participants will be grouped as follows: Siblings and people living in the same household will be grouped together, regardless of ageRemaining participants will be grouped based by age
  • Groups will be separated into 3 distinct physical spaces (separated by ground to floor netting) and will remain in their space throughout the entire session. 
  • Activities have been specifically designed to promote social distancing. This means we will mark individual spaces using floor tape and will explain how each activity works with the biggest point of emphasis being remaining at least 6 feet from the next person.

How: Functionality

  • Participants are expected to be examined for any signs or symptoms of possible COVID-19 prior to leaving for camp each day. This includes temperature checks and contact tracing of anyone who has come in contact with member of the participants household that may be positive or showing symptoms of COVID-19.
  • Our building is fortunate to have three big bay doors, five external entrance/exit doors and six industrial strength ceiling exhaust fans. Our plan is to have all door open, exhaust vents on and several fans on throughout each session. This will allow us to have the best air circulation and airborne mitigation practices possible. The downside is that our climate control measures will not be at 100% as we will see an increase of internal building temperature. 
  • Arrival/ Dismissal ExplainedTo ensure the safest possible experience, we will NOT allow entrance to any non-participant. That is to say parents/guardians will not be able to enter the building upon drop-off/pick up.Drop-off and pick-up will operate in a “carpool” fashion. Arrival- Vehicles will drive from EAST to WEST on Crawford St and will use the curb-side parking lot as the carpool lane for drop off. Coaches and staff will NOT open doors or assist participants exiting vehicles in any fashion. Coaches and staff will direct traffic to ensure the safety of all. Parents are encouraged to remain in the vehicle whenever possible. Participants will be checked for temperature prior to entering the building and the drop-off vehicle exiting the premises.Dismissal- Vehicles will drive from WEST to EAST on Crawford st and will use the curb-side parking lot as the carpool lane for pick-up. We ask that all vehicles have clearly labeled the last name of participants whom they will be picking up. Coaches and Staff will verify the name of the driver and that they are on the pre-approved pick up list/ use walkie talkies to have participants exit the building and get to the vehicle. Coaches and staff will NOT open doors or assist participants with getting into the vehicle, which includes buckling or applying safety protocols. Parents/guardians will be responsible for ensuring the safety of participants inside the vehicle before exiting the premises.
  • We will NOT have a lunch or snack period. We have decided to forgo these options as it is simply not practical to expect to maintain social distancing practices while eating.
  • Participants are required to provide water. 
  • Water bottles will be the ONLY outside items allowed (large, reusable bottles are prefered but not required). NO toys, electronics, cards,etc will be permitted. 

How/ Staff and Cleaning

  • To practice best restrictive contact practices, coaches will only work with one group each week. We will have different coaches for morning and afternoon sessions and those coaches will remain with the same group throughout the entire week. 
  • Coaches will be oriented not only for safe practices of youth activities but also for COVID-19 specific best practices. 
  • Coaches and staff will all be checked for temperature prior to entering the building each day and will be required to wear cloth mask.
  • We will only allow one person into general use spaces (restrooms) at a time and will require constant rehydration and hand washing. Staff will cleaning the restroom (specifically the sinks) after each person has exited the building
  • Pre, During and Post Cleaning. Part of the reason we have decided to not offer full day options and instead two separate three hour sessions is that we will use the gap time to fully clean and sanitize the space. Families in need will be allowed to register for both morning and afternoon sessions, however, we do ask you take into consideration that by doing both sessions your child will be exposed to more individuals.
