Covid 19 Protocol

  • Promote good hand hygiene.

  • No congregating before or after practices or games. 

  • Coaches, volunteers, athletic trainers and officials must wear face coverings at all times.

    • Exceptions are for those under 10 years of age

    • Exceptions are for those with health conditions that prohibit this, HOWEVER, written explanations must be available IMMEDIATELY to local health officials upon request. Parents MUST read and understand this as, if you or your player cannot wear a mask at any time, CUSA must be provided with a doctor’s note so that they can produce it immediately upon request, which logically dictates that CUSA must be in possession of this note BEFORE the player or parent can actively participate at CUSA events.

  • Players must wear face coverings when not on the field (moving to and from the field).

  • A Six-feet social distance must be maintained between individuals except when necessary on the field or court of play.

  • Coaches must have a parent/volunteer help monitor ensure social distancing on teams of young children.

  • Spectators must conduct daily symptom assessments.

  • Anyone experiencing symptoms must stay home.

    • If experiencing symptoms, must stay home.

  • Six-feet social distancing must be maintained between individuals/family groups at practice.

  • Spectators must wear face coverings at all times. 

  • Players, coaches, and officials are not to physically contact each other.

  • Limit time spent on activities where players are in close proximity for extended periods of time.

  • Contact the local health department weekly regarding the status of COVID-19 in the community.

  • Equipment and personal items must have proper separation and must not be shared. If equipment must be shared, proper sanitation must be performed between uses (players should bring both their dark and light jerseys to practice).

  • Time must be allotted between practice sessions to allow teams to exit fields prior to new teams arriving and for proper sanitizing equipment.

  • Promote good hand hygiene.

    • Players, parents and coaches should bring hand sanitizer to practice and games.

  • Face coverings must be worn at all times while bathrooms.

  • Individuals traveling together to and from games or practices must wear a face covering while in the vehicle. 

  • All players, parents and coaches must conduct a pre-travel symptom and temperature check immediately prior to departure for games and practices.

  • Immediately isolate, and seek medical care for, any individual who becomes ill or develops symptoms. 

    • Contact the local health department about suspected COVID-19 cases or exposure. 

    • The affected person should seek COVID-19 testing as soon as possible.

    • Coaches/administrators will work with the local health department to identify individuals who were potentially exposed to help facilitate contact tracing.

    • The club will notify all athletes and parents/guardians associated with the affected team regarding a positive test.

    • If the affected individual participated in competitive play, the team is responsible for notifying any opponents.

    • An individual who tests positive for COVID-19, whether symptomatic or asymptomatic, must not return to sport activities until:

      • (1) Meeting the CDC requirements for ending self-isolation using either a symptom-based or test-based strategy and

      • (2) A documented medical exam is performed clearing the individual to return to play. The documented medical exam must specifically include an assessment of the cardiac/heart risk of high-intensity exercise due to the potential of myocarditis occurring in COVID-19 patients. More information on this issue can be found at https://www.acc.org/latest-in-cardiology/ articles/2020/07/13/13/37/returning-to-play-aftercoronavirus-infection. 

      • Players, coaches, officials or other individuals who had close contact (within six feet of an infected individual for at least 15 minutes), or who had direct physical contact with the person, or who were coughed or sneezed on by the infected person, must self-quarantine for 14 days following exposure based on CDC guidance.

        • Individuals may return to play afterward if they have not had any COVID-19 symptoms.

    • Limit use of carpools. 

Please visit our website here to see a ‘players pathway’. This is a foot traffic flow design to limit social interaction and promote social distancing. Essentially, regardless of where you park, if you enter the footpath surrounding the parking lot, you always follow the flow of the player’s path when travelling to or from your field or car.
