Health & Safety on Soccer Island:
We have been diligently working behind the scenes to modify our curriculum and current operating procedures to ensure a safe return. You will see our coaches making adjustments to our regular routine to continue to keep safety our top priority. Additionally, all coaches will complete a mandatory health and safety course before returning to coaching.
During our sessions, your coach will:
Avoid high-fives, fist bumps, and unnecessary physical contact
Wear a face covering if our state and/or local jurisdiction requires or recommends doing so
Use rings, spots or orange cones as “home base” to keep children spread out when possible
Request that equipment be cleaned up and put away only by the coach
Continue to remind children of the importance of keeping safe distances when practicing skills, by mentioning to “keep space, so you don’t bump into your friends.”
Avoid the use of pinnies
Use a modified Soccer Shots cheer at the end of the session
Additionally, coaches will be sanitizing all equipment before and after each session and monitoring their temperatures daily. We will do our best to use smaller group sizes and/or larger field setups to allow for the distancing of participants and observers.
We are requesting that families attending in-person sessions follow these guidelines for the health and safety of other families and coaches:
Wash or sanitize hands before entering Soccer Island (we recommend singing the Soccer Shots song while doing so – ask your children if you need help with the words!)
Adhere to state and/or local jurisdiction regarding face-covering requirements
- SIDE NOTE ON MASKS: Our local government is suggesting mask use, NOT requiring it. In light of this recommendation, our coaches will wear masks but YOUR CHILD IS NOT REQUIRED TO!
Practice social distancing by trying to stay 6 feet away from others that do not live in your household
Stay home when you are sick and keep your children home from soccer if they are sick (we’ll miss them on Soccer Island, but we want them to be healthy!)
If attending a Mini session (ages 2-3), only one family member per child is permitted on Soccer Island

Jonathan was born in Summerville South Carolina and started playing soccer at the age of 4. He quickly developed into a very technical, fearless and explosive attacker with a good work ethic. He has been known as a top goal scorer for his teams. At a very young age, his ultimate goal was to be a professional soccer player, playing on the world stage. And that dream eventually came into reality in 2017. Some of his early accomplishments were playing in: Region III Premier League, U.S Development Academy Program, Charleston Battery Academy, U.S. ODP Program. U.S Soccer Id2 Program. He also had his first invitation to the U.S Soccer U14 National Camp in August of 2012. At age 15, Jonathan was scouted by an European scout from Denmark during one of the U.S Development Academy games. This scouting eventually resulted into him signing a professional soccer contract with his current Club in 2017. Immediately after signing the contract with his club FC Nordjaelland, he took the Danish Superliga by storm with his abilities. He was also inducted into the club hall of fame the following year. In 2018, Jonathan was called up to be a member of the USMNT, and in October 2018, he had his debut for the National Team.
From Summerville, SC, Joseph played soccer for various local clubs such as South Carolina United Academy and the Charleston Battery Academy. He played for the U-17 United States Men's national soccer team in the 2011 youth world cup in Mexico City. Received scholarships to play soccer at the University of North Carolina and Clemson University. Joseph holds a degree from Clemson University.
