• If a player/coach thinks they are sick, stay home! Specifically: symptoms of acute respiratory disease (i.e. cough, sore throat, shortness of breath), fever, sudden loss of smell or taste, OR been diagnosed with COVID-19 (which would follow state mandated quarantine requirements).
• If a coach, administrator, or official has a concern about a player's health, they have the ability to send the player home.
• Trainings will consist of no more than 10 people. For example, 9 players and 1 coach or trainer, 8 players and 2 coaches or trainers, etc.
• Trainings will have proper social distancing for each player and coach at all times.
• Trainings limited to non-contact activities i.e. individual skills, fitness, etc.
• No physical contact including huddles, handshakes, and high-fives.
• Only 1 training session per field.
• Only players scheduled for a specific training window and group may be present. No scrimmages or “walk-in “guest players at trainings.
• Parents and spectators must follow government social distancing guidelines, i.e. parents to remain in vehicle, stay at least 6 ft from the training area and other spectators. Parents please keep younger non-players at home they will not be allowed to run around on the fields while training is in session.
• Equipment should not be shared between players whenever possible. Shared equipment of any kind should be disinfected before and after trainings. Where possible, communal equipment should only be handled by the coach.
• “Pinnies” shall be used only if: the pinnies are individually distributed to each player and used by that player for the season, or the pinnies are washed and disinfected in between each training/individual contact. • When possible, players should use their own equipment at training only (balls, goalie gloves, etc.)
• Balls should not be handled with their hands, by any player, with the exception of the goalkeeper with gloves on.
• Player’s water and personal equipment should not be shared, and should be placed at least 6 feet apart to ensure breaks are also properly distanced.
• Hand sanitizer should be used by each player before, during, and after trainings, supplied by the club. Your trainer/coach will have spray bottles with hand sanitizer in it. Players will approach the coach for spray one at a time.
• Masks may be worn, if desired, by participants at the fields as long as they do not inhibit respiratory function while training.
• Groups entering fields for trainings should wait until all players from previous training have left. Clubs should stagger trainings to allow ample time or in/out flow of traffic.
The restrooms, concessions and clubhouse will not be open to the public during Phase 1 except for emergency use and will be strictly monitored. The water faucet at the field has been disabled so bringing your own water is essential.
We will have a player "drop zone" marked off with cones at each field, this is a space for the players to lay their equipment/personal belongings down and will be marked off so as to keep within the 6' distance.
