COVID Requirements

Norwell Soccer Association Covid requirements

COVID Precautions

Norwell Soccer Association seeks to provide our players, coaches and supporters with the safest possible environment so that we can continue to offer the chance to play soccer this fall season. The game will be slightly altered based on guidance from CYSL to minimize contact between players.  We have devised the rules outlined below and ask for your cooperation.

Responsibilities of Coaches:

  • Coaches MUST wear a mask at all times;
  • Coaches must keep an attendance list for all practices and games;
  • Coaches will have extra masks and hand sanitizer provided by NYSL.

Responsibilities of Players:

  • Players MUST wear a mask PROPERLY at ALL times, except of a "mask break" when necessary;
  • Mask should attach around the ears so as not to cause any injury if accidentally tugged or pulled on. No around-the-head or neck face coverings permitted during play.
  • No high fiving/hand shaking or similar unnecessary contact;
  • Each participant will be required to have his/her own water bottle, towel, and personal hygiene products (hand sanitizer, facial tissues, face coverings) – no sharing of equipment, etc..

Responsibilities of Parents:

  • All spectators must wear masks at all times and practice social distancing;
  • 1 spectator per household per player (no more than 50 people at a playing surface at any time);
  • Players MUST wear a mask at all times;
  • No signs or symptoms of COVID-19 in the past 10 days and have not been exposed to someone who has been ill in 10 days;
  • Notify NYSL if someone in your household has been diagnosed or presumed to have COVID, or has been in contact with someone who has by email at norwellsoccercovid@gmail.com.

COVID Protocol:

Norwell Soccer follows Norwell Public Health's quarantine protocol.

At this time, if an individual is identified as a close contact, they can now choose to be tested on day 5 or later and upon receipt of a negative result return to soccer activies on day 8.

All close contacts must self-quarantine after the last exposure to the person who tested positive. We follow all Nowell Department of Public Health protocols, including collaborating to complete contact tracing.

During your quarantine period, you must not have visitors in your home or go out in the community. The other people who live in your home can continue to do their normal activities as long as they are not in contact with you, as described further below, and have not been identified as a close contact and put into quarantine. If you test positive for COVID-19 and someone has come into contact with you, that person will likely need to be quarantined.
