Glow fields (https://www.pepperellsoccer.org/field-locations/)
Parents should enter the parking lot on the Nissitissit side and queue for drop-off or pick-up.
What to Bring:
Please have kids dressed for playing soccer – cleats, shin guards, soccer ball and plenty of water, no jewelry. If possible please have kids wear dark and light color shirts.
All players must wear a mask when off the field, including while walking to/from the car to/from the field and when sitting on the sideline. Over the ear masks are allowed to be worn on the field but are not mandatory. Gaiters or other masks which go around the neck are not permitted on the field (but may be worn on the sidelines or when walking to/from the field).
Upon arrival, everyone should remain in their vehicles and wait in line until they reach the designated drop-off point. At that point, a Pepperell Soccer representative will speak with the parent/guardian (in the vehicle) and verify the child’s name and attendance and ask required screening questions. We ask that parents wear a mask during drop off and pick up procedures. The player will then exit the vehicle and report to his or her personal space circles next to the field until we are ready to start activity. Players must wear a mask while existing their vehicle until they begin actively participating in the activity.
Kids may be dropped off starting at 5:20pm.
For pick-up, please remain in your vehicle and proceed in line to the designated pick-up location. A Pepperell Soccer representative will approach you (in your vehicle) to verify the identity of the player being picked up. The player will then proceed to your vehicle and depart. Players are required to wear a mask while waiting for pick-up.
