Thank you for your concern. However you posted the link to NYW not NYE (aka ENYYSA).
Please get your facts straight before being an alarmist and throwing darts at others...

As New Yorkers we should all understand that rules and policies related to COVID-19 are continually evolving. Many of what
can and cannot be done in youth soccer is dictated by NY State, which can change with very little notice.
ENYYSA Return to Soccer Activities is also guided by the best practice guidelines from U.S. Soccer PLAY ON initiative. We
encourage everybody to visit https://www.ussoccer.com/playon, review the guidelines and take the pledge.
ENYYSA would like to take this opportunity to provide some clarity to what is sanctioned and when. Essentially, sanctioning in
larger part means providing insurance coverage. In order for any soccer activity to be sanctioned by ENYYSA members must
be in compliance with

• NY State regulations
• State and Local health regulations and restrictions
• Field permitting and usage policies
For any activities by members not in compliance, there is no sanctioning and no-insurance coverage.


PLAYING IN A TOURNAMENT
The following updated information is from the New York State, COVID-19 Travel Advisory, effective Wednesday, November 4,
2020.

EASTERN NEW YORK YOUTH SOCCER ASSOCIATION
and Its Participating Leagues

RETURN TO SOCCER ACTIVITY GUIDELINES UPDATE
Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association
Return to Soccer Activity Guidelines 11/2020

The travel guidelines require all New Yorkers as well as those visiting from out of state, to take personal responsibility for
compliance in the best interest of public health and safety.

How this pertains to Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association:
1. If teams wish to travel to contiguous states, individuals are not required to quarantine; however the Online Traveler
Health Form must be filled out.

2. If teams wish to travel to non-contiguous states, the Online Traveler Health Form must be filled out and the mandatory
14-day quarantine must be followed.

3. Effective November 4th, travelers may ‘Test-Out’ of the 14 day quarantine (Guidelines Outlined Here)
Indoor / Outdoor Capacity Restrictions

The sports and recreation guidance provides the following in regard to capacity restrictions (p. 5):
• Responsible Parties must ensure that for any indoor sport or recreational activity, capacity is limited to no more than
50% of the maximum occupancy for a particular area as set by the certificate of occupancy, inclusive of employees and
patrons/players/spectators.

o Responsible Parties must limit spectators to no more than two spectators per player.

• Responsible Parties must ensure a distance of at least six feet is maintained among individuals at all times, whether
indoor or outdoor, unless safety or the core activity (e.g. practicing, playing) requires a shorter distance. If a shorter
distance is required, individuals must wear acceptable face coverings, unless players are unable to tolerate a face
covering for the physical activity (e.g. practicing, playing); provided, however, that coaches, trainers, and other
individuals who are not directly engaged in physical activity are required to wear a face covering.
s

Return to Soccer Activity Guidelines 11/2020
The social gathering limit -- which is currently 50 or fewer people in areas that are not subject to the State's cluster action
initiative -- is not the controlling limitation for these activities. The limit is the lesser of 2 spectators per player or 50%
maximum occupancy indoors/space required such that all spectators can maintain six feet of separation outdoors (e.g.,
roughly 100 square feet per person).

CRITERIA FOR RETURN-TO-PLAY

ENYYSA is recommending the following criteria to educate its members on CDC guidelines, New York State Department of
Health, and US Youth Soccer Guidelines to maintain a healthy environment once players, coaches, volunteers, and spectators
return to the field:

❖ Participants should have no sign or symptoms of COVID-19 in the past 14 days and have not been exposed to someone
that has been ill in 14 days.

❖ Live in a general location for 14 days prior to beginning group training. This requirement reduces the risk of introducing
COVID-19 into the training group by someone traveling from a different region.

❖ Common Symptoms:
o Trouble breathing
o Pain or pressure in the chest that persists
o Experience confusion or trouble waking up
o Bluish lips or face
❖ Take temperature at home before going to training.

❖ Upon arriving to training, coaches or staff should ask each athlete if they are experiencing any signs or symptom of
COVID-19. If the athlete has any signs or symptoms of COVID-19 they should be sent home and instructed to contact
their health provider. Players will not be allowed to return to training until they are cleared by a healthcare provider. A
doctor’s note must be provided to return to training

RETURN TO SOCCER ACTIVITY GUIDELINES UPDATE

Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association
Return to Soccer Activity Guidelines 11/2020
❖ Participants, organizers, spectators, volunteers and facility employees in high risk categories should not participate or
attend organized sport activities. List of high risk categories can be found https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-
ncov/need-extra-precautions/people-at-higher-risk.html.

❖ Small group training should take place in an area where physical distancing (6 ft. apart) can be maintained.
❖ Spectators, nonessential visitors, staff, volunteers and activities involving external groups or organizations should be
limited as much as possible. Clearly designate and mark spectator viewing sites to allow for social distancing. All must
practice social distancing including wearing face coverings.

❖ Be sure appropriate infection prevention supplies (i.e. hand sanitizer, facial tissues, facial coverings) are present in
multiple targeted areas.

❖ Each participant will be required to have their own water bottle, towel, and personal hygiene products:
o Hand sanitizer should be readily available and must contain at least 60% alcohol

o Face coverings can include masks, scarfs, and bandanas over nose and mouth

❖ Players are not required to wear face coverings during physical activities but must wear them when arriving and leaving
training.

❖ NO sharing personal items. Participants should use their own equipment and instructed to sanitize their equipment
after each training session.

❖ Coaches and spectators will be required to wear face coverings when within 6 feet of others.

❖ Practice respiratory etiquette by covering coughs and sneezes with tissue or inside elbow.

❖ Tissues, wipes or disposable gloves must be properly disposed in the appropriate receptacles.

❖ Follow cleaning schedule protocol of equipment (cones, goals, etc.) with disinfectant before, during and after use.


Club Responsibilities
❖ Create and distribute protocols to its members.
❖ Contact any additional insurers if your club holds any policies outside of what is included in your
Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association’s membership to ensure all coverages.
❖ Post signs in highly visible locations (i.e.., at entrances and exits, and in restrooms) that promote
everyday protective measures and describe how to stop the spread of germs such as by properly
washing hands and properly wearing a cloth face covering – Corona Disease 2019 (COVID-19)
Return-to-Play Guidelines

❖ Maintain a complete list of coaches, youth athletes, and league officials present at each event to
include the date, beginning and ending time of the event, name, address and phone contact to be
made available upon the request from the local health department.

❖ Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces on the field surface at least daily, or between uses
as much as possible. Use of shared objects and equipment should be limited or cleaned between
uses by each individual if possible.

❖ Have an effective communication plan in place, identify strategies for working with public health
to notify adult leaders, youth and their families if the organization learns a player or coach has
contracted COVID-19 and may have been infectious to others while at a youth activity, while
maintaining confidentiality.
❖ Be sensitive and accommodating to parents that may be uncomfortable with returning to play too quickly.

Could the work-around be that these teams are using their US Club passes for these tournaments? That said, I didn't notice Richie Christiano holding teams playing in one of the many EDP tournaments. Could it be that Richie doesn't want to upset EDP since EDP can circumvent ENYYSA for carding the players and taking that revenue away from ENYYSA?

The poster above is right. All of youth soccer, in fact, all of youth sports is all about money. Your money!!

I'm lost in what a sanctioned tournament does with insurance. If every player has health insurance what is the enysa insurance covering? I would think all of the clubs have general liability insurance. Educate us who do not know which I would think is 99% of us

I have another question what is the point in playing with an "affiliated" league for adults or youth.

They try to scare referees to only do sanction games and they tried to scare teams to only play in sanctioned eague's however what is the real benefit of playing in something that is saying other than paying a couple of extra bucks to some organization that oversees things

I mean even if you run an unsanctioned tournament or League you would probably be able to get the same liability insurance then being part of one of these leagues that are affiliated am I correct. I mean as long as you follow the local laws from the government what is the real difference between a sanction league and unsanctioned League

I think people put too much faith in a league that is sanctioned because there are probably many good organized unsanctioned leagues out there using the same independent Contracting referees who get there liability insurance from the ussf

Clubs, at least the "town" clubs that are using school fields, get their liability insurance through the leagues.

Good luck getting access to fields without being associated with a sanctioned league.

That is not true because anybody can apply for a permit and there are plenty of non-sanctioned leagues in the five boroughs I get from it's not just your typical leagues.

Anybody can apply for a permit. Not everybody is going to get a permit. Especially with schools.

What I'm saying is that if someone applied for a permit and a New York City public park and gets the permit they can make any tournament they want in that particular field so if a lot of good teams agree to play in this person's tournament & waivers there is no need to actually have some sanction League overlooking you

That's IF they get the permit. And the discussion was not just one-off tournaments, but also leagues. Getting fields week in and week out, in numbers, the schools and park systems don't like to play around with that sort of thing. Good luck getting a permit for such a thing without being associated with an established league of some sort.

As for waivers, they are a joke. They mean nothing in a court room if something goes wrong. Their only purpose is to try tricking somebody into not going to a lawyer to file a lawsuit in the first place.

You are making one of the most uninformed statements made on these boards. “Unsanctioned league” is an oxymoron. It is not affiliated with any federation is not obligated to use certified experienced referees. So many things about an “unsanctioned league” are synonymous with ‘Rogue league” because they are not subject to follow any rules or any federation standards of any kind.

Get a red card during an unsanctioned game, that player is not tracked by any league to insure they pay a fine or sit out the next game. try filing a protest in an unsanctioned game, it won’t happen.

Try refereeing an unsanctioned game that gets a little rough and you are not certified. A player breaks a leg and you (the referee) and anyone else associated with the game can get sued and you are NOT PROTECTED.

Unsanctioned games and leagues are a result of people circumventing rules and answering to no one when something goes wrong. Unsanctioned leagues are there to MAKE MONEY and getting a lion’s share of the money because they do not have to pay any federation fees and are therefore not supported in any way.

Unsanctioned games are like operating a limousine or taxi or illegal business without the proper insurance or license to protect the consumer and mostly to protect the players. Unsanctioned games (other than a scrimmage or pickup game) or tournaments are there to make a profit and circumvent standards set in sanctioned leagues. PERIOD!
