US CLUB SOCCER MEMBER UPDATE:
Important reminders about returning to play, October 2020.
Dear California members,
As communities work towards achieving safe and responsible return to play – whether that includes competition or just virtual training – US Club Soccer requires its members to abide by the requirements/mandates established by the applicable local and state public health authorities.
Recently, we have received reports of individuals knowingly failing to comply with those requirements.
Therefore, we wanted to remind you that any training, program or activity that is not in compliance with the requirements/mandates established by the applicable local and state public health authorities is not sanctioned by US Club Soccer. As a consequence, no insurance coverage is provided, nor are other jurisdictional considerations associated with sanctioning, such as access to the applicable adjudication process for disciplinary issues or complaints.
While we require our members to comply with state and local requirements/mandates, we also encourage them to adopt additional recommendations that applicable health authorities have put forward.
We are all anxious to return to a sense of normalcy on and off the field, but we must remain unwavering in putting the health and safety of our children, parents, coaches, and referees first.
