Registration for the Fall 2020 season is open!!!!

COVID-19 and Soccer Registration Update

We are excited to finally create a season. We would like to thank the SB School District for their support.

Here is our plan:

  • Start practices on October 5th (Monday)
  • Season will run through the week before Thanksgiving (and possibly into December)
  • Will follow state and county protocols - activities the San Diego Health and Human Services and California Dept of Public Health will allow
  • The SB School District intends to monitor the fields to make sure protocols are followed
  • The SB School District will ask the club and each family to sign a waiver releasing the school district from liability (the school district is in the process of drafting these)
  • Season will focus on soccer skills and general fitness. Season will not include games against other clubs (it is highly unlikely the county or state will allow these in 2020)
    • Right now (based on Aug 3rd guidance): (1) players and coaches will be required to follow physical distance requirements on the field. (2) SD Health and Human Services does not allow scrimmages (even among players on the same team). (3) Players will be grouped in “stable cohorts” (by division) as required by the county. As the weeks fly by, what is allowed could expand (or could be further limited). We will follow the guidance of public health officials.
    • Masks. Worn by all to and from the field. Coaches and Players are required to wear facial coverings during practices.
  • Players will have one practice per week (Mon – Sat)
  • Please note …. parents (other than coaches and registered volunteers) will not be allowed to stay at the field during practice sessions.
  • Players will be given a soccer ball to keep as well as a reversible pinnie to keep.
  • We have reduced the registration fee to $50 for the season ($10 for scholarship players). For families who have already registered, we will be sending invoices for any balances (can pay with credit card). Online registration is still open.
  • Walk Up Registration. We are planning to host a walk-up registration this Sunday from 3-5pm in the parking lot at La Colonia. Please look for our registrar (Nicky). Please wear a mask. We will follow physical distancing, so please be patient. We will have hand sanitizer and will follow county protocols.

We need lots of help to implement the plan:

  • Coaches – please (asap) let one of our division coordinators know you are interested in coaching or reply to this email. We do not have a lot of time to make sure coaches are registered, have taken the required courses, and have gone through the risk management process. We will help guide you through the process.
  • Volunteers / Team Parents – in order to implement the county’s protocols, we’ll need help at every practice. If you are interested in volunteering, please reply to this email.

During this uncertain time, we are spending more time at home and less time playing sports and games. Below is information / links from Sports Engine (our registration and website platform provider) and Positive Coaching Alliance with ideas to keep our kids busy.
