SANDWICH SC RETURN TO SOCCER ACTIVITIES COMPLIANCE / IMPLEMENTATION PLAN

Under its Return to Soccer Activities Compliance / Implementation Plan (“the Plan”), the Sandwich Soccer Club (“SSC”) intends to follow to the greatest extent practicable and possible the Massachusetts Youth Soccer (“MYSA”) Return to Soccer Activities Guidelines (“the Guidelines”)(as issued and updated on June 12, 2020). The following Plan elements are drawn from these guidelines and are intended to identify responsible parties from the SSC Board that have been assigned on June 14, 2020, to specific tasks and to provide the set of initial steps that SSC has or is undertaking as part of return to play process under the MEOA Phase II. SSC reserves the right to modify this compliance plan as needed in the interest of SSC player, coach, and SSC Board member safety.

  • D. Michael Ball, in his capacity as a SSC Vice President of Player and Coach Development, is designated as the SSC COVID19 Safety Officer;

  • Adam Tedeschi, in his capacity as SSC Vice President and Treasurer, shall be responsible for COVID19- related communications between SSC and the Town of Sandwich Board of Health;

  • Tim Baker, in his capacity as SSC President, shall be responsible for coordinating adequate equipment cleaning and/or sanitization at the SSC facility (Bob’s Fields / Water District Fields). Frequency of facility and equipment usage will determine frequency of cleaning / sanitization;

  • SSC will post and maintain signage that will identify entrance and exit pathways to and from facility practice fields;

  • SSC will post suitable signage at the facility recommending proper hygiene practices in the age of COVID19 and other communicable diseases;

  • SSC will be eliminating and/or limiting the use of share practice equipment until further notice;

  • SSC will post the MYSA Guidelines on the SSC website and through SSC-run digital media;

  • In its effort to promote participant health and safety, SSC will provide all current SSC age group directors and coaches with the MYSA Guidelines and other related documents (and/or a digital link to these documents) and require that these documents be provided to player parents;

  • SSC will schedule all team practice day and time assignments and will assign practice field space in order to maintain MYSA-recommended player group spacing at the facility;

  • SSC will ask all player parents/guardians to minimize the amount of time they are present on or near the practice field portions of the facility. SSC has improved visibility between the parking areas and the fields in order that parents are more comfortable with maintaining distance from player groups during practice sessions;

  • SSC expects players, coaches, parents/guardians, and other visitors to the facility to wear a face covering at all times except while participating during small-group training sessions;

  • SSC is requiring coaches to maintain a record (written or digital) of all practice session attendees;

    If enhanced steps/protocols are necessary in the interest of participant health and safety, these steps/protocols will be added to this document and revised/updated versions of this Plan will be provided to the South Coast Soccer League Board of Directors
