Youth Soccer - Fall 2020  Learn, Play, Fun

COVID-19 Safeguarding-

  • Two fields will be located significantly apart from each other for Recreation Soccer games on Saturdays.  
  • Game times will be offset to eliminate cross over of players coming and going. 
  • A team box will be lined on the field 12 x 14 for keeping players from mixing with spectators.
  • Maintain 6 feet between players (within your team box) when not participating
  • Spectators- 6 foot social distancing between households.  6 feet away from sideline
  • Face coverings are required on coaches and spectators at all times.  Face coverings for players required when arriving and leaving the field.  Face coverings are not required on players during the game.
  • Team distribution of snacks is not permitted.  No sharing of water bottles.  Players and spectators will leave the field immediately following the end of the game.  No post-game gatherings.
  • Coaches are required to keep rosters of who was at games each Saturday so we can do contact tracing quickly.  Keep these records at home in case you are requested to provide them. 
  • Report to the Recreation Department any cases of COVID-19 player illness or exposure.
  • Coaches will create situations during practices that minimize crowding of players
  • Grades 1-5 Goaltenders- must wear gloves
  • No touching of the soccer ball.  All balls leaving the field of play will be kick in’s from the sideline. Because this situation will encourage grouping of players, coaches will kick the ball in for their team but not before spacing players on the field.
  • Following games, teams will not exchange high-fives with the opponent.
