SHJYO COVID-19 Guidelines

The South Holland Jets Youth Organization is committed to the health and safety of our athletes, families and staff. We recognize the impact that COVID-19 has had on our youth and families and are following CDC, IDPH, USAF and IHSA guidelines to ensure safe return to play this fall. 

The CDC strongly recommends vaccinations for eligible athletes and staff, however, we recognize that all of our athletes are not of age to be vaccinated and respect the position of those that are not vaccinated. To promote safety under all circumstances, the South Holland Jets Youth Organization has identified the following plan: 

Coaching staff will do a self-check of athletes upon the start of all practices and games. We also encourage you all to continue to follow guidance provided by the CDC and make healthy choices.  We ask that you refrain from sending your athlete for in-person activity if they are experiencing any COVID-19 related symptoms or have been exposed to COVID-19. 

Mask Usage
Masks are not required when outdoors, but recommended if not socially distanced 6ft or more. Bleachers will be marked to ensure proper social distancing and signs will be displayed throughout the facility. For away games, we ask that families follow the respective guidelines and practice safety at all times. 

Known Exposure
In the case of a known COVID-19 exposure/illness/positive test:

  1. Immediately notify the SHJYO Safety Coach at [email protected], Subject: Known Exposure. Please indicate the name of the individual impacted, date that you were made aware of the exposure/positive test and the best contact number to reach you. 

  2. SHJYO will send notification to the organization and league that a player, coach, official and/or other category of individual tested positive for COVID-19. Respecting Personal Health information, we will not publicize the individual’s name. 

  3. SHJYO will immediately contact the local public health authorities to allow them to begin the process of contact tracing and other possible actions/steps. 

  4. Individuals that have had close contact to someone who tests positive are required to self-isolate for at least 14 days. 

  5. Individuals who test positive for COVID-19 infection will be required to self-isolate and avoid sports participation for a variable duration of time. Prior to returning to play, they need a note from their health care provider releasing them to full participation. 

  6. The climate we are in is very fluid and ever changing. The South Holland Jets Youth Organization Board of Directors will monitor and communicate COVID-19 updates and changes as they are made available, with the safety of our families, athletes and staff as our top priority.  We ask for your patience, understanding and support as we navigate through this season unlike ever before.
