COVID-19 & Returning to Sports

Soccer is considered a medium risk sport as an activity that involves individuals in close proximity and typically involves intermittent personal contact.

 

Henlopen Soccer Club will be adhering to the following guidelines for our Recreational Program.

 

Athletes playing medium risk sports may remove their face covering when active on a field of play but must wear it at all other times.

Face Coverings

  • Coaches and all staff must wear a face covering at all times. This includes when addressing players or officials on or off the field, when coaching during the game, and during practices, trainings and team meetings.
  • Referees and officials must wear a face covering at all times. Traditional whistles must be replaced with a device that can be used for attention without removing the face covering.
  • Spectators and others must wear a face covering at all times.

Social Distancing

  • Players must be at least six (6) feet apart from one another at all times, except during on-field play in game-time situations.
  • Players and coaches must be at least six (6) feet apart from one another at all times unless they are from the same household.
  • Players must be provided adequate space for belongings, water bottles and equipment to ensure six (6) feet of distancing when accessing gear.

Sanitizing

  • Players, staff, coaches, officials and all participants in sports must wash hands or sanitize hands, per CDC and DPH guidelines, before and after practice and games.

  • Hand sanitizer will be available for players at each game field.

General

  • Coaches, staff, officials, parents and players are expected to stay home when sick. 
  • Each athlete shall have only one person accompany them to practices or games. That person shall wear a face covering as required and be at least six (6) feet apart from others unless waiting in their car.

  • Games will have staggered arrival/departure to limit/reduce the mixing of groups.  Please arrive for your game no sooner than 15 minutes before game time.  If you do arrive prior to the 15 minutes, please remain in your vehicle to allow time for teams with earlier games to leave the fields.
