BFR continues regular season indoor soccer, flag football

Limitations to spectators; flag football, indoor soccer tourney cancelled for March 15

In response to COVID-19 and the current order on mass gatherings we have made the following decisions at this time:

1) Regular season games for indoor soccer and flag football scheduled for Saturday will still be played. We ask that spectators are limited to 1 per athlete. We know this isn't ideal but it's the only way to stay under the mass gatherings guidelines while still allowing the athletes to play. 

BFR taking extra precautions

All classes continue except for water classes

In response to the COVID-19 developments, Bluffton Family Recreation, 215 Snider Road, is  taking extra precautions to protect the health of everyone who visits BFR.

"Since the beginning of the week we have stepped up our cleaning procedures throughout the building. We ask that you join us in this effort by wiping down each piece of equipment after use," said Daniel Tinch, BFR executive director.
