Coaches, players, families, and clubs play an important role in getting our players back on the field and ensuring their safety while participating in practices and games. The practices we are utilizing are intended to offer the best safety protocols for our local soccer community. Northshore Youth Soccer Association makes no representations and assumes no responsibility for individual activity or participation decisions by Clubs, Coaches, Parents, or Players. Adherence to these considerations and recommendations does not ensure immunity from exposure. Players and their families who feel unsure about returning to play should take the time to make the best decision for themselves. Players who choose not to attend practices due to concerns over Covid-19 will not be penalized when they feel it is safe to return.
