COVID-19 Safety and Action Plan

Updated 7/30/20

In accordance with guidelines set by the Centers for Disease Control and Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer, our organization, Warminster Soccer Club, will return to play with the following safety and action plan.

a. Communication & Education

· All players and parents will receive communication on our safety and action plan before return to play begins.

· Each team will be asked to provide a parent volunteer to represent the team on the Player Safety Resource Committee. The PSR Committee members will be asked to help support the coaching staff in sharing, explaining and guiding families through the COVID-19 Return to Play Requirements.  Long-term, this group will help pass along important safety related information such as amendments to the COVID-19 Requirements, Concussion Protocols, weather restrictions and other safety related updates throughout the travel year.

· CDC Education materials will be shared with all participants (coaches, players, and parents) on behaviors that reduce the spread of COVID-19 to include but not limited to: hand hygiene, sanitizing equipment, properly covering coughs and sneezes, and staying home when appropriate.
