FC Hawks Soccer Club: Committed to creating exemplary soccer players on and off the field

Covid 19 Update

7/31/2020

NEW GUIDELINES EFFECTIVE AUGUST 15
While Illinois Youth Soccer has developed guidelines for our membership to following, in line with the State Guidelines for Youth Sports, - ALL SPORTS ORGANIZATIONS, INLCUDING NON-IYSA MEMBER SOCCER PROGRAMS, MUST FOLLOW THE NEW IDPH PHASE 4 SPORTS GUIDELINES EFFECTIVE AUGUST 15. Don't be misled to think that these restrictions are exclusive to members of Illinois Youth Soccer.

Illinois Youth Soccer Association (IYSA) is dedicated to protecting the health and safety of our soccer community. We understand that our member organizations want to get back on the field, but this must be done with strict focus on the safety of the players, coaches, referees and families and follow state and local guidelines for resumption of activities. The purpose of this document is to provide IYSA member soccer organizations and their athletes, parents, and coaches with information that they can use to assist them with developing their return-to-activity programming specific to their situation in context of the COVID-19 pandemic.

On July 29, Governor Pritzker and the Public Health authorities, announced a change to the allowable sports activities.  In the July 29 revision, soccer was designated as a “medium risk” sport which allows for trainings and intra-team scrimmages.

This Protocol is based on Illinois Department of Public Health, US Soccer and US Youth Soccer guidelines for soccer organizations, clubs and teams that have reached the Restore Illinois Phase 4. The information in this document is NOT intended or implied to be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment. The knowledge and circumstances around COVID-19 are changing constantly and, as such, Illinois Youth Soccer Association makes no representation and assumes no responsibility for the completeness of this information. Further, your organization is expected to strictly comply with the Center for Disease Control (CDC), state and local guidelines for the resumption of play and seek advice from medical professionals and/or public health officials in your area if you have specific questions. These guidelines address only early phases of return-to-play and additional guidelines may, or may not, follow as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve.

Although the young and healthy may be subject to less severe cases of COVID-19, every case of this disease is potentially life-altering or deadly, particularly in those with risk factors that may occur within our communities. Health consequences may be long-standing and only apparent weeks after initial infection and recovery. Until COVID-19 is either eradicated, a vaccine is developed, or a cure is found, there is no way of eliminating the risk of infection. This should always be at the forefront when designing and considering return-to-activity.
