COVID - 19 Update

As concerns grow, we want you to know that we are on top of the situation and monitoring it as closely as possible. We will continue to do what we can to keep our families and our community safe. That said, here is information from NWISL, the league our Travel teams play through regarding their protocol on the COVID-19 outbreak.

NWISL COVID-19 Changes
Please communicate the following to your volunteers, coaches, and players as soon as possible.  In the event your Club desires to take additional protective measures, you are free to do so.  However, no Club is permitted to disregard any part of the following.
 
The NWISL Executive Board met regarding the Spring 2020 NWISL Season in light of the rapidly evolving national, state, and local responses to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic.  After discussion, NWISL is immediately implementing the following changes for the Spring Season in the interest of the health and  of our volunteers, referees, and children.  
 
Schedule Changes
 
The March 19, 2020 Head Coaches Meeting is Cancelled.  
 
The next regularly scheduled League Meeting on April 7, 2020 at 7:30pm will continue as scheduled for CLUB REPS ONLY.
 
All materials normally distributable at the Head Coaches Meeting will only be distributed to Club Representatives at the regularly scheduled League Meeting on April 7, 2020.  All Club Representatives are expected to attend that Meeting.  Further, only Club Representatives will be allowed to attend the League Meeting on April 7, not only as is customary but also to limit the size of the group attending the meeting to approximately or less than 30 people.
 
SRTA will address any changes to the new referee and referee re-certification classes that have not yet been held.  We will share that information when we learn of the same.
 
As of now,the  of the NWISL Spring 2020 season will be delayed from April 5 to April 18, 2020.  We continue to plan on an eight (8) game season before the Spring 2020 Tournament starts on June 6 for all the Divisions. As a result, there will be 12 play dates (Saturday and Sundays) to play those games.  All teams will be expected to play as scheduled, i.e. without rescheduling, absent extraordinary need.
 
Restricted Club and Team Activities
 
All Clubs and their Teams are prohibited from holding any team practices and other club wide events with the exception of coaches and board meetings at any time their respective school district(s) have cancelled in-school classes (ie, anytime any school district has cancelled classes or is utilizing e-learning) through April 13, 2020.
 
Alterations to Game Day Procedures
 
All regular game day operations and procedures will continue once the season starts with the following modifications:  All pre-game, center-of-the-field assembly (if any) and the post-game congratulatory exchange continue, without the conventional handshake until further notice.

Please note that RRSC will continue to monitor this situation and we will bring you information regarding this situation as things evolve. The Soccer community is a resilient one, and we will all get through this together. Stay healthy and safe, everyone, and we will see all of you soon!
