A youth soccer club in New York is banning the "High 5." They are also banning fist bumps and hand shakes at games.
Why? The club is trying to prevent the spread of the flu.
The president of the soccer club is also an infectious disease specialist. Sick players are encouraged to stay home. Others are encouraged to practice good hygiene like washing hands multiple times a day.
