AYSO Carson City Region 140

COVID-19 Update

2020 Fall Schedule Amended

On October 2, Governor Sisolak issued a new directive and accompanying guidance relaxing some of the previous restrictions in place for youth sports.  The new rules increase the number of spectators at an event from 50 to 250.  This allows AYSO to have additional divisions during each time slot so that you can start the rest of your Saturday earlier.  Because of earlier sunsets, we need to start all weeknight sessions at 5:30.  The new schedule is as follows (changes in bold underline):

Playground/Schoolyard (2016/2017)- Saturday’s only at 10:00
6U Boys/Girls (born 2015)- Saturdays 8:30; Wednesdays 5:30
8U Boys (2013/2014) - Saturdays 8:30; Tuesdays 5:30
8U Girls (2013/2014) - Saturdays 8:30; Wednesdays 5:30
10U Boys (2011/2012) - Saturdays 11:00; Thursdays 5:30
10U Girls (2011/2012) - Saturdays 11:00; Mondays 5:30
12U Boys (2009/2010) - Saturdays 8:30; Thursdays 5:30
12U Girls (2009/2010) - Saturdays 10:00; Mondays 5:30
14U/16U Boys (2005-2008) - Saturdays 11:00; Thursdays 5:30
14U/16U Girls (2005-2008) - Saturdays 10:00; Mondays 5:30

The last day for Playground/Schoolyard will be Saturday, October 17.  The last day for all other players will be Saturday, October 25.

As everyone is well aware by now, the current COVID pandemic has created challenges for all youth sports.  Despite these challenges, we think it is so important to get our kids out of the house to have a little exercise and some social interaction.  That said, we are cognizant of the safety risks that COVID represents.  Therefore, we have created a fall season designed to limit exposure for your children with clinics/sessions designed improve players’ skills within smaller groups.

All instructional periods will be scheduled to limit contact with other groups before, during and after practice without crowding.  Coaches and players are asked to arrive no earlier than 15 minutes before their scheduled time and leave no more than 15 minutes after the end of their scheduled time.

Single Point of Entry.  There will be one point of entry (at the sanihut) at which an AYSO official will take temperature readings of each person entering the field.  Signs will be posted to clearly mark entrances and exits.  We will also ask those that enter the field whether they are exhibiting any COVID symptoms.

Smaller groups.  AYSO recreational soccer for all ages will occur on the south side of Pete Livermore Sports Complex on smaller, 8U fields.  Players will be broken up into groups of 8 to 10 and assigned to a field.  All fields will be at least 10 yards from any other field or training space. 

Equipment. Hand sanitizer will be available for coaches to apply for each child prior to starting play and wipes to clean balls.  There will be no goalie and no throw-in practice to limit hand contact with the ball.  Players should not touch the goals.  Equipment and water/fluid bottles should not be shared.  All players must wear shinguards under the socks and closed toed sneakers or soccer cleats. No slide tackles are allowed.  No spitting is allowed.

Masks.  All individuals, including players, will be required to wear masks while at Pete Livermore Sports Complex, except for players that are actively playing.  Players should wear masks when not exerting themselves.

Spectator Limitations.  Generally, only players, coaches, referees and AYSO officials will be allowed on the field.  Additionally, only one parent or guardian per player will be allowed on the field.  However, to reduce the number of people on the field, parents are highly encouraged to drop-off their kids or to remain in their cars during sessions if they would like to remain onsite.

If You are Sick. We ask that anyone not feeling well, with a fever, or exhibiting any respiratory symptoms please do not come to Pete Livermore Sports Complex.  If your player or a family member has been diagnosed with COVID, regardless of whether you are exhibiting symptoms, we ask that you not come to Pete Livermore Sports complex, cooperate with Carson City health officials and tell us so that we can take appropriate action.  We will track which kids play on which fields.  If we become aware that a player has COVID, we will work with Carson City health officials to help with contact tracing and determine an appropriate pause in play for affected players.  We will notify the parents of each player that may have been exposed to COVID and provide return to play criteria at that time.

Facilities.  Due to reductions in staff within the Carson City Parks and Rec department, the City is unable to provide normal services.  Therefore, restrooms will be closed.  We recommend your players go to the restroom before they leave home.  However, a sanihut will be available near the south restrooms and another will be near the snack bar if needed.

If conditions improve, we may be able to create a more normal soccer experience with larger teams and games against other teams.  We ask for your patience and flexibility as we try to create the best experience possible as conditions evolve.

We feel that by following the plan above, we can create a safe playing environment for your kids and for ours.  Only by working as a team - with the board, the coaches, the referees, the players and the parents - can we do so.  We want to get our kids out of the house for their sanity and yours!  Please join us in bringing great soccer to Carson City’s kids!
