LYS COVID Return to Play Protocols

LYS Spring 2022 Covid Guidelines

The health and safety of our players, coaches, and LYS families take priority in our club’s decisions about COVID guidelines. The club will adhere to the recommendations of public health officials and make adjustments as needed. The #1 priority for LYS is always the physical and psychological health and safety of our players. And we know that playing soccer, with thoughtful and responsible guidelines in place, has had a significant positive impact for our children, many of whom have been playing with precautions since last year without significant issues.

The following rules/protocols are designed to align with Oregon Health Authority and OYSA guidelines. Participants must be healthy, and free of any symptoms, in order to participate. It is incumbent on all of us to not participate if we have any symptoms (cough, temperature, sore throat, fatigue, headache, shortness of breath etc) or if we have had any contact with anyone with confirmed Covid-19. We ask families to follow OHA guidelines.  

Safety protocols and procedures include:

  • Players/coaches must have COVID-19 Waiver on file to participate. This was completed upon registration.
  • Participants must be healthy, and free of any symptoms, in order to participate. It is incumbent on all of us to not participate if we have any symptoms (cough, temperature, sore throat, fatigue, headache, shortness of breath etc).
  • Players are instructed to space their gear in their own individual area so that they are physically distanced during water breaks etc.
  • Parents are asked to stay off of the field area unless they are a coach or manager.
  • Players are recommended to maintain social distancing when they are not actively playing in the game or practice. (ie.- on the bench, between activities, going to/from field).
  • Coaches are asked to maintain 3 feet of social distancing from players except for when coaches are actively participating in contact games or activities.
  • All players and coaches have the option to wear a mask.

*If you test positive for Covid please follow OHA protocols before returning.  LINK
