Welcome to the NTH Tophat website!



Update September 3, 2020: 

Covid-19 Protocols
Please familiarize yourselves with CDC Covid-19 Information here and follow these steps before every practice/game:
  • Take your child’s temperature prior to arriving at training each day. If they have a fever of 100.4 or higher or display any other symptoms for the Coronavirus, please stay home. Coaches will be confirming with players prior to training/games, and anyone not in compliance will be sent home.
  • Any individual who is unable to confirm these criteria should be restricted from participation and contact their healthcare provider.
  • Wash and sanitize all equipment each day.
  • Wash hands prior to and after attending training.
  • Supply your child with their own hand sanitizer.
  • No sharing of food, water or equipment.
  • No high-fives, handshakes or hugs.
  • No spitting on the fields.
  • Players on the sideline or bench should remain socially distanced (6 feet apart) – including during pre-game, half-time, and post-game discussions.
  • During practices, parents should remain in their cars and avoid gathering on the fields.
  • All spectators should practice social distancing and not congregate in large groups.
  • All are encouraged to wear a mask or other face covering until the CDC, State or Federal authorities no longer recommend the practice.
  • All players and spectators must exit the fields immediately following the conclusion of their practice/game to allow participants for the following practice/game to access the area.
  • Teams and spectators waiting to train/play should NOT enter the field until all previous participants have vacated the area.  Maintain social distancing.
  • In the event of Covid-19 symptoms or exposure, please notify your coach and then refer to the CDC guidelines here.
NTH Facility Guidelines
  • NTH is a Face Mask Zone. Following US Club Soccer Return to Play Guidelines as well as local governing body policies regarding the COVID virus NTH Facilities are deemed "Face Mask Zones''.  Expectations at NTH facilities will be that anyone who is not playing wears a mask.  Players and referees are not required to wear face masks during games.  This is because masks may obscure vision, increase respiratory challenges, or increase other injury risks while being physically active.
  • Here is a video with more information:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l3lwuZwobBI
  • All fields should be cleared before the next team enters.
  • Facilities at all venues will be maintained and sanitized.
  • All attendees should always maintain social distancing guidelines during arrival and departure from competition.
  • Spectators should remain off the field, practice proper social distancing and utilize masks or cloth facial coverings throughout the event in accordance with local and national guidelines.  Expectations at NTH facilities will be that anyone who is not playing wears a mask.
  • In the event of an injury, staff/trainers may assess and facilitate management of the injured individual in accordance with proper first aid management. Family members and any on-site healthcare providers may participate in injury management as necessary, but others should maintain proper social distance.
  • When visiting a trainer on site for any reason players, parents and coaches who are within 6 feet of the trainer, must wear a mask during that time.
  • In the event of lightning, fields will be cleared and all players/parents need to wait in their cars until the all-clear is sounded.  Please do not remain on the fields or under pavilions.
Equipment: Suggestions to Coaches
  • Team areas should be separated from spectators and each other so that teams and attendees will not touch the same surfaces (benches, for example).
  • Shared surfaces, soccer balls, discs, and any other equipment should be disinfected before and after each game.
  • Training vests can be shared between team members, but this should be minimized or eliminated if possible.  Vests should be washed before and after each day of use.
  • Players and referees should bring their own equipment (hand sanitizer, water bottle, towels, etc.) that should not be shared between individuals.
  • Equipment used by staff (cones, for example) should not be handled by players or other attendees and should be disinfected after use.
NTH Game Day Protocol
  • Anyone with a fever of 100.4 or higher, a cough, loss of taste or smell in the past 72 hours, should not attend training/games.  No fever reducing agents should be used.
  • All coaches must be wearing masks or face shields.
  • Spectators are strongly encouraged to wear masks or face shields.
  • Any personnel entering the team sideline must wear a mask.
  • NTH promotes social distancing before, during, and after matches. Coaches and spectators must practice social distancing at all times while in the complex.
  • Players are not allowed to sit on sideline benches.
  • Players should observe social distancing when not in play.
  • Parents are not permitted on the player sideline or behind goals.  Sidelines should respect the 6 feet of distance at all times.
  • Please exit the complex immediately following the conclusion of their game to allow participants for the following games to access the area.
  • Teams “waiting” to play should NOT enter the field/sideline until all participants from the previous game have cleared the sideline.
  • No tents are permitted on the sidelines.
  • No sharing of water bottles, food or equipment.
  • We encourage everyone to bring personal hand sanitizer.
  • No spitting.
  • Please remove all items and trash from the field.
