Return to Play Guidelines

July 6, 2020 - The Commonwealth of Massachusetts announced today that Youth Sports is entering Phase 3 Step 1.  Soccer, considered a Higher Risk sport, is permitted to be conducted at Level 1 only.

Level 1 is defined as Individual or socially distanced group activities (no-contact workouts, aerobic conditioning, individual skill work, and drills).  Essentially this is a continuation of Phase 2 with some minor modifications.  Instead of being limited to 12 participants the following is now permitted:

For team and group sports, no more than 25 players or participants can be on a single playing surface/area/court at any one time. The number of coaches and staff should be limited. Larger playing areas and surfaces, such as athletic fields, tracks, facilities that have multiple courts or playing areas, may be used by more than one group at one time, provided that adequate social distance and group separation can be maintained. To ensure group separation, groups must be spaced at least 20 feet apart while sharing a single playing surface, court or field.
