CHICAGO — U.S. Soccer has released the final phase of its five-phase PLAY ON campaign, providing coaches, players, parents, referees and administrators with the complete return-to-play guidelines during COVID-19 to help ensure the safety of all participants.

PLAY ON was created to inform and assist in the process of organized soccer returning to play nationwide during the COVID-19 pandemic, and is divided into five progressive phases, from Phase 0 (stay at home) to Phase IV (no COVID-19 related restrictions). With Phase I and II already released, Phase III has now been published at ussoccer.com/playon, providing the complete return-to-play recommendations as Phase IV is the return to normal soccer activity without restrictions.

While Phase III allows for full-team competitions to return, each phase of the return-to-play recommendations should only be taken if and when state and local COVID-19 regulations deem it safe.

“While we’ve now released our full return-to-play guidelines, it’s important that everyone first follow local and state regulations before taking any steps forward,” said U.S. Soccer Chief Medical Officer George Chiampas. “Different areas of the country are at different phases, or even returning to previous phases, as the entire country continues to deal with coronavirus outbreaks. Clubs and teams should take a slow and methodical progression between phases to make sure that all participants will be as safe as possible.”

PLAY ON includes a comprehensive Grassroots Soccer Recommendation Guide that provides all those involved in youth soccer – players, coaches, parents, administrators and referees –important safety protocols to consider and implement at each stage of return to play. The guides also contain valuable information that can be applied to all levels of the game.

Phase I of PLAY ON allows for training in small groups, while Phase II provides for full-team training and the newly launched Phase III presents recommendations for the safe return and management of full-team competition. Even in Phase III, COVID-19 prevention and response protocols, outlined in earlier Phases, should still be followed. Social distancing should be maintained when possible and teams are recommended to only participate in regional single-day events to avoid significant travel or overnight stays.

Each phase should follow sequentially, with Phase I suggested to last four-six weeks and Phase II three-six weeks before progressing to Phase III.

“Regardless of which phase a club or team is operating in, everyone should be prepared to take a step back and revert to an earlier phase if needed,” said Chiampas. “This can be in response to increased risk, cluster outbreaks, updates to public health guidelines or an inability to safely maintain COVID-19 prevention and response protocols. It is important to remain vigilant and flexible as we prepare for every scenario. By prioritizing the safety of our soccer community, we can preserve the health of those around us and help ensure that our sport can remain a part of our lives at this time.”

U.S. Soccer also encourages all players, coaches, parents, referees and administrators to take the PLAY ON Pledge, an oath to stay informed and to follow recommendations from medical professionals, to be honest in their self-evaluation and to be responsible to themselves, their family and their communities.

Through PLAY ON, U.S. Soccer will continue to provide updates and resources to the soccer community as the summer continues, to help it navigate the challenges of COVID-19. Along with providing best practices in the detailed and in-depth recommendation guides, the PLAY ON initiative includes instructional videos, sample training exercises, infographics and other resource materials. All the resources for the PLAY ON initiative can be found in a virtual hub at ussoccer.com/playon.

So basically you now have US Soccer and ENYYSA both saying that we shouldn't be playing games but that league in Oceanside is still going on. Shame on Oceanside Soccer club and any team that is playing in it.

Our club just started using a company called Playon Athletic Cleaning to sanitize our fields before our training sessions. They use UVC lights that kills everything even covid19. If other clubs use it will they let us play?

How is that going to keep kids from breathing and sweating on each other?

3 fields is $500 (they charge $225-$350 per field) more fields less per. Each team pays part of cost. 6 teams w/15 kids is $5.50 per kid. For 2 training seasons a week is great it is keeping the boys and girls skills sharp. They also said they could do the fields before a game and after. the website is playonathleticcleaning,com. I think it is run by 2 girls that played soccer on LI.

i am not sure if it protects against person to person contact. But it is keeping the fields, nets, and bench clean. Fitness and ball skills is what we are doing now. Our team has been working on moving the ball (touches as a team). It is keeping everyone on the team training at the same intensity. These girls have not had training and team fitness since March. Loss of momentum will show in all teams. Every kid worked had to get to what ever level they are at. It does not take long to lose it. I was just asking a question in the original post. I have 2 college athletes that have lost the Fall season. They already have team spots but my HS sophomore needs to get recruited next year. Kids need to keep sharp.

It's not just Oceanside league - that is small and local. There are other clubs traveling out of state to compete in tournaments, and posting them "proudly" on their social media pages. Look at the teams list from the weekend tournament in NJ July 11-12. Names you are very familiar with, using their US Youth cards to circumvent recommendations, and the league happy to accept the money. One of those clubs even had a coach pass away from COVID. This pandemic isn't going to end when leagues and teams are hypocrites.

It is odd that one of the few NYE teams that went to the tournament against Covid guidelines was a team whose coach died from Covid.

Travelling out of state is probably legal and can be done by any team. But how is oceanside playing regular league games at Oceanside park. These are Oceanside teams with refs. Don't see how they can be doing that when the guidelines were clearly set?

Is it really that difficult to figure how Oceanside is doing it? HINT: Look into the leader of the LIJSL. Inspector Gadget makes it happen.

I hope ENYYSA does something, but I doubt they will. Every club with a team in the league should have their club fined for playing.

Each state is doing what they think is best. NY has gotten this under control because of good rules and for the most part people following them. If no one followed the rules we would be like other states with trucks lined up for the people dying.
The best soccer organization for this is LISC. They have a playbook and are running everything within the rules. I am happy my daughter is there. FIrst class organization all the way.

I guess 140,000 people dying in a few months is nonsense. I guess I should be allowed to drink and drive too. I should be able to do whatever I want as you say.

Maybe you should be protesting instead of being worried about a kids soccer tournament in NJ. Protesters don't get covid. You know all those people destroying and defacing our city who are "following the rules" keep believing the bull..... Maybe you didn't know people sadly die from Alot of diseases that we don't have a cure for. But we never shut down the world for that. Goya is good!! Soccer needs to be great again! Glad to hear NJ got it togther for these kids and made it safe

Yeah but a lot of those disease you mention aren't communicable like COVID-19! Do you understand the difference? Protesters don't get COVID? Right, we don't know cause they don't get tested. Geez.....
