KUSC COVID-19


KUSC COVID-19 Return to Play Protocols

At the field:

  1. Prior to arriving please review the Ontario Self-Assessment for School Age kids: https://covid-19.ontario.ca/school-screening/.  At the Sign-In table, players or parents show the results(green with a check mark) from your phone or a printed copy.  We do not need to keep the printed copy though.  An example can be found below. 
  2. Arrive no more than 15 minutes before start time to sign in.
  3. Masks must be worn by players at all times except when playing on the field. Masks are required on the sidelines and must be socially distant. 
  4. Players must bring their own water bottle clearly marked.

Parents:

  1. Only 1 parent at the field during sessions and they must be outside the fenced area(turf) or outside the field area(grass). Please socially distance and wear a mask while watching.
  2. For the parent that is going to stay at the field please complete the Ontario Self-Assessment https://covid-19.ontario.ca/self-assessment/.  If 1 parent is staying their name will be required at sign in. 

Coaches:

  1. Coaches must also complete the Ontario Self-Assessment https://covid-19.ontario.ca/self-assessment/.
  2. Masks must be worn on the sidelines but are not required on 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.

Process for the ontario self assessment: Go to https://covid-19.ontario.ca/self-assessment/

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.

Thanks everyone!
