EPYSA UPDATE

Return to Play Protocols

These guidelines will provide direction for the immediate re-opening stages upon a county turning Green. The focus for now is on acclimating and reintegrating players, coaches and families. This is a local, club based restart of training players. Due to the restrictions of no contact, no other sanctioned soccer activity such as tryouts, scrimmages or other competition is yet to be approved.

The guidance from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania on the Green Phase still engages in mitigation strategies for COVID-19. It is a cautious and gradual re-opening. Most businesses and programs will operate at limited capacity upon entering the Green Phase. We will be no different. As the Governor and Department of Health provide additional information and guidance beyond the initial opening, we too will expand the opportunities for youth soccer. 

These guidelines were created in consultation with those developed by the US Olympic Committee, US Soccer, US Youth Soccer, the CDC and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and is a collection of best practices for carefully moving forward in the COVID-19 world. We encourage you to follow all aspects set forward in this document, but to also implement additional strategies based on the input of these other agencies. 

The conditions during this pandemic have continually evolved and changed weekly, sometimes daily. We know additional information and new guidelines are forthcoming. They will change at any time, so we must be flexible. These guidelines will be updated as necessary. 

This document does not replace the advice or direction of medical professionals. The risks of infection still exists. Until a vaccine or cure is developed for COVID-19, we must proceed cautiously and continue to monitor and comply with the Governor’s office, PA Department of Health, CDC and any other federal or local regulations.

Please recognize that many families and individuals will have reservations about re-opening and reintegrating. We must be respectful, sensitive and flexible as we restart. If a parent, child or coach is not comfortable returning to play, they shouldn’t.
