Seacoast United has created a list of Frequently Asked Questions in an effort to help guide our member families through the company's COVID-19 protocols.

Q: What is your current COVID-19 policy?
A:

New Hampshire:  www.seacoastunited.com/covid-19
Massachusetts:  www.seacoastunitedma.com/covid-19

Policies may be slightly different due to variations in guidelines by industry in each state.  However, CDC recommendations are consistent being a federal agency, but please note that local guidance often supercedes federal guidance resulting in tigher restrictions/policy.

Q: Are you implementing enhanced cleaning at your club?
A:
At all of our locations, rigorous health and safety practices are being followed.  Fields and indoor facilities are receiving special cleanings at increased intervals.  At the heart of it all is a thorough support of handwashing practices for our staff and the children under our supervision.  We have also established enhanced safety protocols for families to follow during this time.
