Return to Play Guidelines

As a club we are committed to the safety of our players, coaches and families as we all return to play soccer after the national stay-at-home order. We support and will follow the guidelines established by the Arizona Soccer Association which are as follows: 

While many are going to be excited to return to play there are others who may be apprehensive.  If a player, parent, or family are not comfortable returning to play – DON’T.  We must demonstrate respect and courtesy for everyone’s feelings during this time and ensure that we provide a safe environment as we return to play.

Implementing the ASA Return-to-Play Guidelines will require a cooperative relationship between the Club, Coach, Parent, and Player.  While the Club and Coach must create a safe environment, the Parent must make the decision for their child to return to play.  If, as a parent you are not comfortable in your child’s returning to play – DON’T.  And finally, Players must be responsible to adhere to, and respecting the social distancing requirements and contact guidelines that have been established. 

The roles/responsibilities for each include:

The foundation for the four phases of the ASA Return-to-Play Guidelines are:

ASA remains steadfast in our commitment to the safety of our players, coaches, referees, families, and communities.  It is imperative that everyone understand their role and demonstrate a commitment adhering to the ASA Return-to-Plat Guidelines which have been created based on federal, state, and local directives and guidance with the intent of providing a safe environment to get back on the field.  If there is hesitation in returning to play – DON’T; just because you can does not mean you must.
