We have the process of safely returning to soccer activities. The Guidelines that the Governor has set forth is a measured, gradual, science-based plan to return to normalcy. There are 3 phases and there is a 14-day criteria that must be achieved before a State, Region or in this case, a state-wide sports organization can move from one phase to the next.

Competitive Soccer
 - We have entered phase 2 of return to play protocol.

Things that change in phase 2:
  • Increased group size. Full teams can now begin to train at once. We are still not able to bring more than one team together. No full games or scrimmages
  • Players can begin to play to contact. games and activities should still be in smaller groups. (1v1, 2v2, 3v3, 4v4, as examples).
  • We will be able to use goalkeepers. GK's must wear gloves. Once a GK is no longer playing as a GK, they should take off gloves and use hand sanitizer to clean hands.
Things that stay the same:
  • Return to play is 100% voluntary
  • Practice waiver and questionnaire must be completed prior to attendance of each practice. Parents must complete form on the day of and just prior to attending each session → Return to Play.
  • Players should still come to and leave from practice wearing a mask
  • Players should practice social distancing whenever possible on and off the field.
  • No one should touch balls with their hand, other than GK's. No throw-ins.... when the ball goes out of play, kick-ins should be used to restart play.
  • No heading
  • No high fives, hugs, etc.
  • No Spitting
  • No sharing of equipment cones, pinnies, shin guards, water bottles, uniforms, etc.

Summer Camps - Summer camps are open. Same player safety guidelines apply, as outlined above for competitive soccer. Additional procedures related to disinfection of facility.
