Indoor Training

HWE will always put the safety, health, and well-being of all our Coaches, Players, and Families FIRST.  To ensure HWE follows all safety precautions and has received appropriate approvals, HWE submitted the IYSA Organization Communicable Disease Agreement Form for the opportunity to begin training players.  In addition, HWE is committed to following all protocols and guidelines including but not limited to:

  1. Illinois Department of Commerce Youth Sports Guidelines.
  2. IYSA Return To Activity Protocol.

Parent Responsibility & Waiver

  • HWE parents must read and go over all guidelines/protocols with their son/daughter before attending any training sessions.
  • HWE parents must read, sign, and turn in to their team manager prior to your first training session the Communicable Disease Release of Liability and Assumption of Risk Agreement from the IYSA. 
  • Registration for training will be through your team managers.  Remember this is not a mandatory sponsored event with HWE, it is optional.

Health Requirements
