RYSC loves the game of soccer and is committed to doing everything it can to provide a fun, safe, supporting, and competitive soccer experience for its players, parents, and coaches. Accordingly, RYSC asks the following of its players, parents, and coaches:
- Use Common Sense when it Comes to Illness – Players, parents, and coaches who are not feeling well should stay away from athletic competition and team events.
- Confirmed COVID-Positive Tests Should Quarantine – In the event that a player, parent, or coach tests positive for COVID-19, that individual and his/her immediate family should quarantine per current CDC guidelines.
- Coaches Shall Determine if/when Team Events Should be Cancelled – In the event of a team outbreak or illness, coaches may determine to cancel practices and/or games. In the event that a team will not be able to participate in a game, the coach is asked to notify RYSC (email@example.com) as far in advance as possible. Games will not be rescheduled, but informing the Club and one’s opponent is the right thing to do.
- Parents/Guardians are Empowered to Keep Children from Events – RYSC and its coaches will do the best they can to provide a safe environment for soccer, but soccer is a team sport and any time there is a gathering of people, there is a risk of exposure to transmissible disease. Each parent/guardian may decide for him/herself that his/her child should refrain from team events.
RYSC notes that local, state and federal guidelines regarding COVID-19 have evolved during the course of the pandemic. Should they change again, this policy should not be read as an attempt to circumvent updated jurisdictional guidance.
