1. Arrival

Plan to arrive 30 minutes before your game


2. Check-In
Prepare for longer than usual wait times to check-in your team. People and players must keep the 6-foot distance between another person during check-in. You may be asked to take a contactless temperature check upon check-in or while waiting in line.

3. Face Coverings
Face coverings are not required to have on during the sand soccer games. Those people going into the building to use the restroom, or order food and beverages must follow the requirement posted by Park Lanes Bowling Center. It is highly recommended for spectators to watch the games wear a face mask.


4.Food & Beverages

Please remember the only food or beverage items allowed to be brought into the complex is a water bottle. All other food and beverage items may be purchased inside the bowling center and brought out to the sand soccer complex by going through the glass doors next to the outside bar.


Please note: Thunder Beach Sand Soccer KC, in our Agreement with Park Lanes, is prohibited from having ANYTHING to do with food and beverage sales or service. The food and beverage service is solely dependent on how the Park Lanes management wishes to handle it.


5. Restrooms

There are indoor restrooms available inside the Park Lanes Family Fun Center. 


6.  Game Balls

Soccer balls will be provided by Thunder Beach KC and they are to be wiped off with a sanitary wipe or disinfectant spray after going out of bounds before returning into play. Teams are asked to designate one person to assist with sanitizing game balls.

7.   Seating

In the past Park Lanes has provided tables and chairs for players and spectators so they may sit and watch the action while enjoying food and beverages from the patio and outdoor deck. If there are tables and chairs, the tables will be separated by 6 ft.


People not wanting to enter the complex may bring their own seating and sit on the hill on the west side of the complex. Unless you are members of the same family, please maintain the 6-foot social distancing requirements.


Whether you watch from inside or outside the complex, please maintain 6-foot social distancing requirements and always clean up your seating area before you leave. 


8. Smoking 

Smoking of any sort is not allowed anywhere inside the Thunder Beach KC complex. 


9. Children

Thunder Beach Sand Soccer KC wants to invite you and your family to attend and support your family member(s) participating in our program. Adults who bring children with them to our complex are solely responsible for the health and safety of those children. Children may not dig holes in the sand, as these holes can easily lead to twisted ankles or worse. Children are also prohibited from kicking the ball around on the sidelines as balls entering the field of play could result in injury. Parents are responsible to ensure children do not throw sand, play in the outdoor showers or sprinklers, scream, fight, and run unsupervised. Parents must accompany any children entering the bowling center. 


10. Animals

Animals are prohibited unless that animal is a certified service animal.
