After much deliberation between our Senior Staff Members and the Local and Statewide Government (as well as hearing directly from our members via a survey completed last week) it has been decided that we will officially start our 2020/21 season on Monday August 10th.

We follow PALM BEACH COUNTY guidelines. You can find the latest updates here.

Although there are some organizations that have shown a disregard for any safety guidelines, we felt as though we were only ever able to return to play once these guidelines were in place and our Players/Staff and Parents were well educated on how we are to proceed.

Below you will find on how we are to execute some of the guidelines that we have decided upon as part of our "Safe Return To Play" policy. These guidelines are designed to keep everybody safe and healthy as well as allowing the quality of our sessions/interactions to remain at their highest.



To ensure everyone's safety, we have compiled guidelines for Players, Parents as well as Coaches that we ask to kindly adhere to:


=> 
If a player has had a documented case of the COVID-19 infection, or has had direct contact with somebody who has, a doctor's note is required to clear them to participate in team practices and games.


  • Each family is asked to check their athlete's temperature at home, and refrain from participation if he or she has a fever (≥100.4 degrees F). BY ATTENDING PRACTICE, YOU ARE CONFIRMING THAT YOU HAVE TAKEN THIS STEP PRIOR TO ATTENDING ANY CLUB FUNCTION.

  • Please inform us immediately should your child or anyone in your family test positive for COVID-19 so we can inform any and all staff/families on your child's team.
 
  • Staff Coaches to wear protective masks.
 
  • Parents are asked to remain in their cars during training sessions and club events. Should parents decide to observe sessions from the sidelines or to socialize with other parents, they will be REQUIRED to wear face masks should they leave the parking lot or enter the complex. This requirement will be in place until further notice.
 
  • No more than 50 persons per field, including sidelines with waiting teams, players, parents, spectators, staff, etc.
 
  • During Practice and/or Games, we will have a Field Marshal present to make sure we do not exceed the total number of persons allowed per field at all times. If any field to be observed to exceed 50 people, spectators will be advised to be removed from the field.
 
  • Staff/Coaches will ask each player if they are experiencing any signs or symptoms of COVID-19. If the athlete shows or reports any signs or symptoms of infection, they will be sent home and asked to contact a healthcare provider.
 
  • We will provide adequate field space for social distancing.
 
  • All soccer activities will be staggered/spaced out to minimize interactions with other athletes.
 
  • Minimum time between practice and game time-slots on each field must be 30 minutes, but may also require more than 30 minutes in order to adhere to Emergency Order guidelines related to disinfecting team benches and equipment and no more than 50 persons per field. (Allows games to be finished, team benches and equipment to be disinfected properly, and people to vacate field/facility prior to next set of teams, players, etc. arriving.)
 
  • No handshakes, high-fives or hugs.
 
  • Players to bring their own equipment (ball, hand sanitizer, water bottle, towels, etc.) such that no equipment is shared between players.
 
  • No sharing of water, towels, and personal equipment.
 
  • Pinnies will not be shared by different people during practices unless cleaned and disinfected in between uses.
 
  • Players and Coaches will use their own equipment and properly sanitize all equipment after every training session. Players and Coaches will not share or touch another participants equipment.
 
  • Cones, goals, flags and other equipment to be handled by coaches only.
 
  • Social distancing (6' minimum) will be enforced during explanations, breaks and on sidelines.
 
  • If a person does not qualify under the terms of the Emergency Order exemptions and are not physically distanced 6 feet away from others, they must be wearing a facial covering. "Facial coverings must be worn by all persons in public places where social distancing in accordance with CDC guidelines is not possible or not being practiced."

=> If a player has had a documented case of the COVID-19 infection, or has had direct contact with somebody who has, a doctor's note is required to clear them to participate in team practices and games.
The club will follow CDC guidelines (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/schools-childcare/youth-sports-faq.html) and will send out a communication bulletin as follows:


"We have been notified today of a positive child case of Covid-19 within our program. 

According to the Palm Beach County Health Department and the CDC, these are the guidelines we are to follow:

- The definition of an exposure is when someone has had direct contact with a person who has tested positive. 
- The definition of direct contact means you have been within six feet of an infected person for more than 15 minutes. 
- Our direct point of contact is the ______ age group.  Everyone in the age group must self-quarantine for 14 days. 
- If a person in quarantine develops any symptoms, then that is the time that testing is recommended. 
- We have been conducting our own level of contact tracing to determine the level of exposure to other children.
- The CDC and the PBCHD do not recommend that you run out and test.  Their recommendation is that everyone self-quarantine for 14 days and only test if they present with symptoms. 

In an effort to do our due diligence as well as allow each of you to do the same, this age group will be suspending practices and games as of today, and will plan to re-open on ________.  This will allow for a full 14 days from the last day of exposure (_________). 


Thank you for your understanding, prayers, and support during this time.  Please keep us informed via email, of any testing and/or positive results.  If a test has been conducted on a member of your household it is IMPERATIVE that the child stays out of school until results are negative.  Otherwise – it spreads."
