Covid-19 Policy

 

Tri-Town’s Covid-19 Policies

These policies have been established as part of Tri-Town’s continuing efforts to stem the spread of Covid-19, and are intended to be consistent with the requirements and guidance issued by New York State West Youth Soccer Association (our governing body).  All visitors to our fields are expected to read and follow these policies as a condition to attending or participating in games or practices at our fields.  Failure to follow these policies may result in parent(s) or player(s) being asked to leave our fields, which are private property.  For the most up-to-date policies, and for our standard field rules, please visit Tri-Town’s website: tritownsoccer.org.

  1. Players must maintain six feet of distance between individuals at all times, unless safety or the core activity (i.e., practicing, playing) requires a shorter distance.
  2. If a shorter distance is required, and while on the bench/sidelines, players must wear acceptable face coverings unless they are unable to tolerate a face covering for the physical activity.
  3. Players will wash hands before and after practices/games.
