SESA is Currently following the indoor and spring Return to Play guidelines as required by Iowa Soccer Association.
Outdoor training and activities require that masks be worn to and from the field, no spectators allowed at training, spectators must distance at games, and teams will sit on the same side of the field as their team bench during games.
Indoor activities require mask for participants including during play, facility limitation on spectators, and social distancing should be followed.
Coaches will always wear mask and be distanced when possible. Players should not share any equipment, including bibs that each player will be responsible for their own.
Iowa Soccer has been working with state and local health and safety, and medical professionals to create, monitor, and update the return to play guidelines.
If you have any specific questions about the RTP phases, please let us know.
Should players stay home if symptomatic?
- Yes. Players need to stay home from training if they exhibit symptoms or are not feeling well. This should also be done for common illnesses as well to help minimize the potential spread to others.
What personal hygiene measures should players be taking?
- Players should be washing their hands often and after contact with another person or object. Coaches, players, and parents should all be practicing frequent hand washing and sanitation when interacting with others and/ or shared objects. Players should also limit the sharing of things like soccer balls, and should NOT be sharing water, food, pennies, or other items that may have sweat or other partials on them.
Do players still need to distance?
- During phases 3 and 4 players do not need to socially distance and are able to play as normal (contact). However, during phase 3 coaches are to maintain distance from players. As we return to phase 4, social distancing is not required for players, but parents and spectators should still distance when on the sideline watching.
