    • Bring your own water bottle.

    • Practices cannot exceed pod sizes of more than 25.

    • Spectators are not allowed; however, this does not prevent a parent, guardian, or support person from being present if necessary due to a participant’s age, disability, or medical condition. Contact the Kimball Community Education office with questions (320-398-7700 X 1112).

    • Participants must maintain 6-foot social distancing when not actively playing (team meetings, side lines, waiting for a turn).
