At the field:
Field marshals are now required by Ontario Soccer during training sessions. This is to ensure players are socially distant on the sidelines and parents are socially distant while watching. Please make it easy on our staff and volunteers and wear a mask and stay socially distant. As we move through the phases of reopening some of these rules will be revisited by Ontario Soccer and Public Health.
This can easily be done on your phone or your child’s phone and be presented at the Sign-In desk. Don’t forget to bring a water bottle.
Kingston United Soccer Club is following the guidelines as laid out in the Ontario Soccer Return To Play Guide as a way to ensure all our players, coaches, staff, volunteers, and members are safe as we return to the pitch. For more information about the Return To Play Guide see below taken from the Ontario Soccer website and the attached document.
The Ontario Soccer Return to Play Guide/Plan consists of a three-phase approach that includes:
Step 1: Individualized Training
Conditions: All Phase 1 Return to Train conditions are met
Restrictions: No contact, no league, exhibition, festival or tournament games
Step 2: Team Training and League Games (enhanced training & modified games)
Step 3: Continuation of Team Training and League (regular competition, games and training)
Note: Steps 2 and 3 are tentatively scheduled to start 21 days a part and subject to Government of Ontario assessment and approval. Ontario Soccer will advise membership confirmation of Steps through updated Information Bulletins that will include updates to this Return to Play Guide.
