Spring league games are starting soon, and as in fall, there are Covid-19 protocols set by U.S. Youth Soccer and Wisconsin Youth Soccer that our players and their families need to follow. Please carefully review, and help us comply with, all the protocols listed below at games and practices. With your assistance we can keep our players, families, and staff in good health and have a great spring season. If any of these protocols change over the course of the spring season, we will provide you with updates.
Phase III Protocols/Return to Play Guidelines
· Parents should conduct a health check on players at home before going to a game or training, following the US Youth Soccer Coronavirus Self-Check screening questions.
· Any player or coach exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms of any kind must refrain from participation for 10 days or until medical clearance through a primary care provider has been acquired.
· All players not on the field of play during a game will be required to wear a mask.
· Players must maintain a social distance whenever on the sidelines or talking with a coach or referee.
· Coaches will track attendance of players at training sessions and games.
· Coaches will be required to wear a mask during games and training.
· All spectators in attendance at a game will be required to wear a mask. Any spectator who cannot meet this requirement may observe from a vehicle and/or be absent from the fields/facility until the match is completed.
· Spectators and players, not actively participating in a game, must stay at least 6 feet apart, unless they are within the same family unit.
· Spectators should be situated on the same sideline as their team bench (Spectators should sit on one end of the sideline and the coaches/team should sit on the other end.) The opposing team and spectators should sit on the opposite sideline. (Spectators should sit on one end of the sideline and the coaches/team should sit on the other end.)
· Players and spectators may only consume drinks or snacks they have provided for themselves. No team snacks.
· Teams will have shorter warm-up times for games, and games will be spaced out as much as possible, to allow one game’s participants to clear the field before the next game starts.
· Prior to, during and following a training or game there will be no handshakes, high fives, or other unnecessary contact, even within the team.
· Carpooling to a game or training, outside of a family unit, is not recommended.
· Bathrooms at Voigt Soccer Park will be open. People should stay at least 6 feet apart while waiting to enter the bathrooms.
