AYSO Region 397 Changes to the Fall 2020 Season

COVID-19 has caused all sports organizations to rethink the services they provide to their players and families.  We at AYSO Region 397 are determined to meet the challenges ahead and create a soccer program to be an example to all sports organizations.  The following are changes AYSO Region will be implementing for the upcoming fall season to adhere to requirements made by Bullhead City, Mohave County.

  • Parents are to remain in the car at practice, players are to sanitize upon arrival to practice and half way through.

  • Spacing fields out to minimize sideline interactions between parents, players, and volunteers.

  • The time between games will be increased.  Currently, most games start within about 10 minutes of the previous games starting.  We will push back games to have a minimum 30 minutes between games.  

  • Create distancing guidelines where parents are required to stay 8 feet from the sideline of the field and spread out across the entire sideline.

  • Stop all high-5 lines and parent tunnels at the end of the game.  This will be replaced with players and coaches coming to the center circle and clapping for all the players.  Also, we will be launching a sportsmanship pin giveaway at the end of the game.  Each coach will be given a pin at check-in to be given out to the player from the opposite team demonstrating sportsmanship consistent with the AYSO philosophies.

  • Coaches and referees would be asked to sanitize prior to reporting to their games. Players to sanitize upon arriving to check it with coach.

  • Promote and encourage parents to keep children at home if they have symptoms of COVID-19

  • Make masks optional for parents.  They will not be allowed for players, coaches, and referees due to overriding medical concerns of players exerting themselves with face coverings.    

  • Recommend that teams forgo community snacks at halftime and the end of the game, asking parents to bring individual snacks for their players.  Also, players are not to share water while at AYSO events. 

  • AYSO will purchase additional keeper jerseys for coaches so players are not required to share during the game.

  • Recommend coaches wash and sanitize all coaching equipment after each game and practice. 

  • Have a parent meeting before the start of the season to discuss upcoming changes to the season and how it will effect playing in the future.

  • If a player or coach test positive for COVID-19, the entire team has to quarantine for 14 days.
