PARENT RESOURCES

Resources For All Star Parents

As an All Star parent during the COVID-19 pandemic, it is easy to feel you don't have the support required to keep your athlete thriving in their sport. USASF recognizes this and strives to bring you resources that will allow you to help your cheer or dance athlete grow and maintain all that their hard work has brought them. Encourage your athlete to stay connected to their coach and teammates, discover leadership and enrichment opportunities, and learn about USASF partner programs until they are able to return to practice or rehearsal and the sport they love.

PREVENTATIVE RECOMMENDATIONS

Protect yourself against flu and respiratory disease by practicing excellent personal hygiene. Remember to:

  • Be the steward of your own health and potential impact of any illness on others: If you are sick, stay home.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Wash hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Wash or sanitize your hands before eating.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Considering altering greetings (kissing and hugging hello and goodbye) to be cautious.
