CANCEL FALL 2020 SEASON

Good Day NOASA Team Managers and Players, 

On behalf of the NOASA board, we have determined that returning to competition this Fall is not feasible. We cannot comply with the current Ohio Phase 3 requirements of covid testing for participants.  Summit County Health Department’s field restrictions significantly limit play locations. The board therefore voted on August 4, 2020, to cancel the Fall 2020 season.

  We wish all members and their families safe and healthy passage through this pandemic. Soccer will bring us back together!

FALL 2020 POTENTIAL SOCCER SEASON

Hello,
In this time of great uncertainty, our first priority is the welfare of our membership.  This unprecedented situation has no manual or guidelines.  We are all in this together.  The board is assessing the situation on a weekly basis and following all the state and local guidelines.

We have looked at and discussed many options, if and when we can play soccer again.

Things that would be mandatory:

Wearing masks to and from the fields, and any time you are not in game play, sitting on the sidelines.

Being prepared with sanitizer.

Pre-Game health questionaire for each player to be completed prior to play.

Maintaing social distancing guidelines at all times, including team huddles.

Vacating the facility immediately after game play, thre can be no groups hanging out at the fields afterwards.

Things that COULD be modifications for the Fall 2020 season:

Shortened season

Shortened game length

Central location for all games

We are reaching out to managers via email, this week for feedback. We are looking for their input as well as their player's interest in participation for Fall 2020.

Please feel free to reach out to yoru manager and discuss your intentions for fall soccer.

Wishing everyone healthy, happy and the best, 

NOASA Board

 

 

 

 
US Soccer Phase III Grassroots Recommendations Document

U S Soccer Play On Grassroots Phase III

 
Update from U S Soccer Phase III Grassroots Recommendations
Posted Jul 23, 2020

Dear U.S. Soccer Members-

In June of this year, we launched PLAY ON, a broad educational campaign to unite and support the soccer community during this global pandemic. Your assistance with distributing this information to your members has been greatly appreciated and we’re proud to provide our Phase III Grassroots Recommendations Guide.

Phase III allows for the continuation of full-team training and the addition of full-team competitions, provided:

  • COVID-19 prevention and response protocols are still in place and actively followed
  • Social distancing is maintained, with limited exceptions as part of training activities and competitions as outlined
  • Teams are recommended to participate only in local / regional and single day events that avoid significant travel and/or overnight stays
  • All policies and decisions are guided by local and state recommendations

While trainings and the addition of competitions may continue to make things look more “normal,” in consideration of how COVID-19 is transmitted, it is vitally important that everyone involved in the process of return-to-play does so with extreme diligence and attention to the widely-agreed-upon standards and guidelines.

As we have consistently shared and emphasized, these guidelines and best practices are intended for use WHEN AND IF your local authorities have deemed it safe to gather in groups and at no time should competitions include more individuals (players, substitutes, coaches, referees and parents/guardians) than is locally allowed. U.S. Soccer is in no way endorsing holding practices or games in violation of any federal, state or local mandates.

We want to emphasize that Phase III should only be instituted following a successful Phase I reintegration, and after an appropriate progression from small groups to full team training and fitness in Phase II. The suggested durations of Phase I and II are 4-6 weeks and 3-6 weeks, respectively.

Regardless of which phase a Club is operating in, everyone should be prepared to take a step back and revert to an earlier phase if needed as a response to increased risk, cluster outbreaks, updates to public health guidelines, or an inability to safely maintain COVID-19 prevention and response protocols. It is important to remain vigilant and nimble as we prepare for every eventuality. By prioritizing the safety of your soccer community, you can preserve the health of those around us and help ensure soccer can remain part of our lives at this time.

On behalf of U.S. Soccer and all those involved in our sport, I sincerely thank you and our entire soccer community for your active participation and efforts around safe return to play over the past weeks and in the upcoming months. Together, we will move forward and thrive. We are, and will remain, “One Nation and One Team.”

Adult League Play Suspended

US Adult Soccer Association
March 13, 2020

Dear USASA Members and Players,

 

With the proliferation of COVID-19, USASA is hereby initiating an immediate suspension of all soccer activities until March 31 when we'll reassess the situation. This includes all regional cup games, all affiliated league and tournament play and team practices, and in-person gatherings and/or administrative meetings. 

 

USASA is committed to the health and well-being of its players, coaches, staff, and families. We'll continue to actively monitor the situation and, as always, we encourage players and families to practice repeated and proper CDC hygiene procedures on and off the field, including:

 

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. 
  • Don't shake hands during or after a game.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
    • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.

Corona Virus Update
Posted Mar 11, 2020

To:        U.S. Soccer Membership
From:    Dr. George Chiampas, Chief Medical Officer
RE:       Coronavirus Update

With the increasing number of cases of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) being reported across the world, U.S. Soccer's leadership has reviewed and will continue to monitor all international and domestic programming for our National Teams and staff. As part of this review, we are working closely in partnership with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and international agencies including the State Department, USOPC, IOC and FIFA in real time to guide decisions on travel and participation.

Our main priority is the safety and well-being of our players, coaches and staff. For this reason we have modified some of our travel policies, and are reaffirming best practices for illness prevention.

As members of the U.S. Soccer family, we would encourage you to carefully look at your own programming - including events and travel - and stay in contact with our office as well as your local and state departments of Public Health with further questions. We will endeavor to provide all members with timely and relevant information on Coronavirus.

There is currently no vaccine to prevent the Coronavirus. The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed. Everyday preventive actions should be taken, including:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Follow the CDC's recommendations for using a facemask.
    • CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including Coronavirus.
    • Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms to help prevent the spread of the disease.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
    • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.

Additionally, here are a number of different resources and communications from the CDC and other organizations regarding the Coronavirus:

CDC - Coronavirus Overview

CDC - Travel Recommendations (China)

CDC - Frequently Asked Questions

CDC - Travelers Health

WHO - Advice for Coronavirus

U.S. Department of State - Country Specific Travel Information

USOPC - Coronavirus Update

Our primary commitment and focus at all times is the health and safety of our U.S. Soccer family, so please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions or comments.

Sincerely,

Dr. George Chiampas
