The Suspension of the Handshake
In youth soccer, the traditional post game handshake is being discouraged by Montgomery Soccer Inc., at least until the flu scare has passed.
"Replace the post game handshake with a post-game cheer or round of
applause for the opposition," the league is urging coaches.
"Have players wash their hands before games and especially before
eating anything at the field -- hand sanitizers should be part of the
game day kit.
"Make sure players are not sharing drinking bottles or cups."
The traditional morning handshake among students and staff at the Norwood School, in Bethesda, has also been shelved for the moment.
Alternative greetings like the elbow bump, or a simple "Good Morning," can substitute, the school says.
