Washington Youth Soccer’s Recommended Steps for Fall Soccer

We recognize and appreciate all the hard work by our members during this time, and sympathize with the uncertainties, the questions, and the needs that many of you have. As we continue to navigate these uncharted waters, we have a few steps that we recommend our members take right now.

  • Keep registration OPEN for the fall season. Until we know in certain terms what the season will look like, we want to operate as if a fall season is in the cards for all levels of youth soccer in our state.

  • Continue clearing RMAs in your organization. This is one of the most important steps you can take to be ready to go at a moment’s notice if a fall season is to go forward. We want all coaches and administrators to be fully cleared and approved as soon as possible.

  • Keep training your coaches. Coaching education might look a little different now with virtual learning and other changes from the norm, but we are working hard to make as much coaching education as possible available.

  • Recruit volunteers wherever you have need in your organization. Youth soccer is powered by volunteers at nearly every level, and that budgetary uncertainty makes their presence even more significant. Identify the needs in your organization and recruit wherever and whenever possible.

  • Make a plan, display it proudly, and stick to it. Make Washington Youth Soccer aware of any and all plans you have for the fall season, ideally with alternative plans at every phase of reopening and return to play. The plans outlined by Washington Youth Soccer in our return to play documents are still valid as of 7/28/20, and you can use whatever you need from them to craft your own. This includes our initial recommendations for youth soccer in phase 2 and 3 in Washington State, which are currently unaffected by the governor’s office’s latest changes to public gatherings in phase 3.

  • Continue to communicate with your members, your leadership, and Washington Youth Soccer as things change on a local, state, and federal level. We will support you however we can, but the decisions must be made by you.

  • Above all, control what you can control and plan for every possible scenario that you see your organization facing. Washington Youth Soccer will continue to update our Return to Play page with all relevant information for our membership, and we welcome questions at [email protected] Our priority is the health and safety of our players and families, and we will not do or recommend anything that unduly jeopardizes that goal. Stay safe, stay healthy, and stay connected. Together we will get through this, and don’t forget—MASK UP

TRACYTON SOCCER CLUB Return to Play Protocol

At Tracyton Soccer Club, the health and safety of our players, coaches, and their families is our top priority. Along with Washington Youth Soccer (WYS), we have been working to develop a Return-to-Play protocol for our Tracyton teams. In Washington State, people living in counties which are in Phase II & III are allowed to be involved in Youth Sporting Activities. In Phase II, practices with groupings of players of 5 or less, retaining as much social distancing as possible is allowed. In Phase III, full team practices may resume as well as teams may begin playing games.

To adhere to these guidelines, Tracyton has implemented the following return to play safety protocol for our club. Please review the following pages to allow you and your family to best prepare for return to play safely.

Phase II

 

  •   Groupings of up to 5 players are assigned pre-practice to a designated practice area that is sectioned off by cones. Each practice area is separated by 20-30'. *Players will know what zone they are to practice in prior to arrival.

  •   No gathering before and after practice.

  •   As players arrive and depart, they are to maintain at least 6 feet from each other

    and move directly to their designated practice areas or return to their cars.

  •   Entry and exit between practices will be staggered.

  • Parents/guardians should stay in their cars or stay 50' away.

  •   Sanitizer should be present for before and after practice.

  •  Each player needs their own ball and water bottle. Sharing is prohibited.

  •   Breaks during practice will be organized so that 4 of the players go to a zone

    corner, and the 5th at the midpoint of the zone.

  •   Players are to set their gear and water at their designated practice spot

  •   Coaches are to stay outside of the player zones.

  •   Coaches can work 2-4 zones so they can work with the entire team.

  •    Drills / workouts / trainings are to be designed to ensure no contact with players maintaining at least 5-feet between each other.

  •   When players arrive home, remove clothing for immediate washing, wash hands, and shower.


Phase III

 

  •   While social distancing is still required, game-like practice conditions may resume.

  •  Fields cannot exceed the 50 person maximum.

  •  No gathering before and after practice/games.

  •  As players arrive and depart, they are to maintain at least 6 feet from each other

    and move directly to their designated practice areas or return to their cars.

  •   Entry and exit between practices will be staggered.

  •   Fields can accommodate up to 50 people, so parents may not be able to view

    practices / games from the sidelines.

  •  Sanitizer should be present for before and after practice/games.

  •   Breaks should include social distancing of 6-feet.

  •   When players arrive home, remove clothing for immediate washing, wash hands,

    and shower.

  •   Games against other teams may resume.

  •   Sidelines will be set up so that players maintain 6-feet between each other when

    they are not on the field.
