When you first hear that they have banned Hi-Fives in a youth soccer league... you just have to wonder why? But when you hear why, it actually makes sense.
There is a youth soccer league in the NY Metro that has banned hi-fives and post game handshakes. It's all in an effort to control the spread of the flu.
We love our kids... but they can be little petri dishes. By limiting the contact you can lessen the chance of spreading the flu. And hopefully the parents of kids with the flu will keep them at home.
Stay safe... wash your hands often... and if you don't feel well, STAY HOME!
