RETURN TO PLAY - PHASE 3

Now that we are in Phase 3, we need to keep in mind the importance of following the protocols trained during phase 1 and 2.

We keep following CJSA’s protocol and adhering to the same requirements as in the both previous phases.

In addition to that, CJSA recommends following activities on the field:

Training

  • Contact is allowed within the training environment; however, this should be limited to actual training and managed to avoid prolonged contact.
  • Clubs/teams should still keep intermixing to a minimum.
  • Adhere to social distancing requirements when participants are not playing (on the bench, sideline, etc.).
  • Adhere to wearing masks when not playing
  • Don’t share equipment or water
  • All equipment must be sanitized after each training session
  • Any benches must be sanitized after each training session
  • In an effort to communicate in a safe manner - setup a staging area outside of the field (or a designated area inside the field) where players place their belongings and water. This should also be where the coach communicates with the players while socially distanced.

Games / Matches

  • Out of state travel is prohibited, regardless of game or tournament.
  • Everyone must adhere to social distancing recommendations when participants are not playing (on the bench, sideline, etc.).
  • Adhere to wearing masks when not playing and on the bench.
  • Coaches to wear masks.
  • Consider COVID-19 case activity level and risk in those communities when making travel decisions.
  • Teams and referees are not to engage in traditional sportsmanship gestures, such as post-match handshakes. - - Teams are encouraged to find new ways to show sportsmanship.
  • If spectators do attend, they should limit the retrieval of soccer balls should they go out of play and let the players retrieve the ball.
  • Minimize crowding at games and practices. For example, field space must be large enough to provide for social distancing or all in attendance; spectators must be distanced from the field, provide separate entrances and exits and space out practice and game times.
  • Spectators must follow social distancing recommendations including the wearing of masks as well as maintaining at least 6 feet of physical distance from each other. This includes from Assistant Referee’s.
  • Stagger start of games to ensure that there is the possibility for social distancing amongst all spectators if they are present.
  • Game balls must be sanitized at halftime of all games and after games.
  • Any benches must be sanitized after each game.
  • Don’t share equipment or water.
  • - In an effort to communicate in a safe manner - setup a staging area outside of the field (or a designated area inside the field) where players place their belongings and water. This should also be where the coach communicates with the players while socially distanced.
