As changes have been implemented in the CDC guidelines around vaccinated peoples, First Tee has made changes to their requirements for our participants going into our summer programs.

Participants will receive an e-mail with specific information per location that they register for. Each location will likely have specific guidelines.

Unless your child is under age 7 or has extenuating circumstances that are communicated to us before class time, parents will not be allowed to follow their child through activities during this time. Parents are allowed to observe programming from a safe location, which will be designated and communicated to you ahead of the program starting through that official confirmation e-mail from your staff coach.

Masks will not be required to be worn by our participants starting this summer. Anyone that feels more comfortable wearing a mask during program times is absolutely welcomed to do so.
EXCEPT: If a participant or coach is indoors, they will be required to wear a mask if required by that location. Any participant or coach at the RCVLLC/TFLC will need to wear a mask to enter the building. The building will continue to stay closed outside of needing to use the restroom or refilling water bottles.

Participants will be pre-grouped before class time in small groups with a singular coach. This is the group that participants will stay with throughout the duration of the session, called their ‘pod’. The absolute max number of participants per pod will be 8 with one coach, but likely would be smaller.

Pods will be mainly organized by level in TFTGD and age, so that participants are being instructed with their correct curriculum level and are within a typical peer group.

Participants would be asked to bring their own equipment, but if a participant does not have their own, we will help participants get their own that they will keep and use during the program times. There will be a cost to renting equipment. For more information about this, please click here.

Activity stations will be outside. Anything necessary to be sanitized between pods will be sanitized with solutions by staff.

Bathroom breaks will be monitored with only one participant within the bathroom space at one time.

Participants will be asked to bring their own water bottle. Not all courses have open food service, and the learning center does not have any vending available.

If you have any questions or concerns around these protocols, please contact Katie Harris at kharris@firstteedallas.org
