UPDATED Oly-Pen Sports Facility Status 3.31.2020
We are closely monitoring the updates from Federal, State and Local Governments and the recommendations from the CDC. As of this date we are expecting to be closed through at least the end of April. As soon as we are given the green light to resume normal business operations, we will update everyone in advance of our reopening date.
Until then, we are rolling all leagues, programs, and rentals forward to the date of reopen. If you have any questions feel free to send us an email at email@example.com.
We hope you are all staying safe and healthy during this difficult time. We miss all of our wonderful soccer family and can't wait to see you all back on the field.

Dear Oly-Pen Sports Family
Olympic Peninsula Sports has made the decision, despite working through all the protocols through the guidance of the Health Department and CDC, we will be closing our facility for a 2 week period to do our part to help diffuse the spread of COVID-19. Following announcements and recommendations by USASA, Washington State Schools, Arena Sports, Starfire Sports and others, we felt it would be in the best interest of our customers to close the facility and reassess the situation on a weekly basis. We currently plan to reopen for normal business beginning Monday, March 30th for all normal business. However, We will post a confirmation or update to that effect by Friday, March 27th as to whether those circumstances change or not.
We will continue to be vigilant and monitor all federal, state, and local recommendations and post updates via the website, social media, and email to all of our customers over the coming weeks. We will be rolling all current scheduled leagues, rentals and events forward two weeks. If you have additional questions or concerns please send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Communication by email will be the preferred method over the next 2 weeks.
Thank you for your understanding and we can’t wait to see you all back on the pitch!

COVID-19 (CORONAVIRUS) - March 5th, 2020
Olympic Peninsula Sports has been monitoring the current spread of Coronavirus throughout the world, to the US, and into Kitsap County. The health and welfare of our valued members and guests is always of utmost importance to us.
We do not have all the answers but we will do the best we can to keep people informed of what is going on around us and the mitigation and precautions being taken to keep the center safe for anyone who enters the facility.
It is a possibility that our members and guests, as well as our staff, may come into contact with and/or contract the virus. It can be spread in multiple ways, including from family members or friends, or with exposure while at work, school, the grocery store, the gas pump, or any number of places you may visit. We are not raising an alarm but, rather, trying to get out in front of a possibility.
Those at risk for the most severe symptoms of Coronavirus are older adults and/or those with compromised health. We, at Oly-Pen, have relatively young, active and healthy members. However, we do have a large number of guests/spectators who may be more susceptible to severe symptoms. For the health of our community as a whole, precautions need to be taken. Therefore, we are requesting that any members, guests or staff feeling ill or experiencing flu like symptoms remain home until they are feeling better and not showing signs of illness.
To keep the environment at Oly-Pen as safe as possible, and after reviewing CDC information, we are implementing protocols to help keep any potential virus from spreading and are asking you to assist in the fight.
What we are doing...
All surfaces within the facility have been bleach treated. This includes (but is not limited to) all hand railings, doorknobs, and flat surfaces.
Guest Services and Cafe Staff will close their stations every hour to perform disinfectant wipe down of these surfaces. Please plan your needs accordingly.
All papers, pens, and other disposable items have been removed from surfaces and will be presented upon need/request
Automatic hand sanitizers have been ordered and will be placed in high traffic areas when they arrive.
Additional pump hand sanitizers have been ordered and will be distributed.
Referees will be performing general disinfectant wipe downs of railings around the playing area in between games.
Posters are being placed to encourage and remind people to stay home when sick and to thoroughly wash hands (this should go without saying).
We have designated a safe place if someone unexpectedly or suddenly becomes ill.
What you can do...
Stay home if you are feeling sick in any way. This includes common colds.
WASH YOUR HANDS - OFTEN!
While we are all friendly & good sports at Oly-Pen, we are giving you all a pass and requesting that you DO NOT shake hands, "high five", or "fist bump" after games. As an alternative, simply tell everyone "Good game" or give them an elbow to elbow tap or use a foot to foot tap - after all this is soccer.
Keep your eyes open. If you see someone sick or suddenly in distress, please alert a staff member.
The bottom line is this: Let's continue to play & have fun, but we all need to do our part to keep things under control.
Should anything change within our community or if we receive any communications or direction from local, state, or federal health officials, we will advise you at that time.
Wishing you all the best,
Olympic Peninsula Sports
