The Cedarville Soccer Association board, in coordination with guidance from SAY Soccer and the Ohio Department of Health, has approved the following policy for the Fall 2021 season:
- For SAY games, we will divide by "community"—teams will be on opposite sides of the field, with their community (parents) sitting on the same side as their team.
- Coaches will encourage teams to wave and yell "good game" rather than using the traditional line-up high fives.
- We will avoid any type of "tunnel" for the kids to run through after the game.
Symptoms and Exposure
- Anyone with signs or symptoms of COVID-19 should stay away from others and seek medical care if necessary.
- If a player has or likely has COVID-19, you must alert your coach and refrain from practices and games for at least 10 days.
- If a player is exposed to COVID-19, is not fully vaccinated*, and who hasn't had a positive COVID test in the last 90 days, you must alert your coach and refrain from practices and games for 10 days, which may be reduced to five days if a viral test collected on or after day five has come back negative.
- If a player is exposed to COVID-19 and fully vaccinated* or who has had a positive COVID test in the last 90 days, quarantining or testing after exposure is generally not necessary unless symptoms develop.
- Failure to notify your coach or follow these guidelines may result in the removal of the player from the league without refund.
- Failure to follow these guidelines may result in the full quarantine of your entire team during the quarantine period. Due to the difficulty of rescheduling, the games will likely not be made up and will result in a draw.
- Coaches and referees must alert a CSA board member for cases and exposure.
