Coronavirus & US Youth Soccer

For those with questions about the current Coronavirus situation in New Jersey and how it affects US Youth Soccer, please click the link and view the statements from US Youth Soccer. 
 
Here are some things to be mindful of (from US Youth Soccer):

USYS encourages our soccer community to take all reasonable measures to mitigate the risk of COVID-19 in their daily lives. Coronavirus and influenza are spread by exposure to droplets via coughing and by contact with surfaces touched by an infected person. Touching an infected surface and then touching your face, eyes, mouth or nose is a preventable route of transmission.

Here are some basic rules to help you and your family stay safe:

+Wash your hands frequently with soap and water (at least 30 seconds).

+Avoid touching your mouth, eyes or nose with your hands.

+Clean or disinfect all areas of your training area after every use.

+Use alcohol-based sanitizers in addition to frequent hand-washing. Carry small bottles of alcoholic disinfectant to use when hand-washing facilities are unavailable.

+During camps, training and tournaments, maintaining hygiene is extremely important. Clothes should be washed after workouts.

+Support your immune system with a varied, vitamin-rich diet with sufficient vegetables and fruit to help prevent infections. Fruit containing vitamin C, such as oranges or grapefruits, are particularly important.

+Keep hydrated and drink enough to keep mucous membranes moist.

+Flu vaccines are always recommended.

+If an athlete, coach or staff member has symptoms such as coughing, fever or general malaise, they should contact their physician, should NOT attend practice and should be evaluated by your personal physician.

 

As a source of information and support, USYS will continue to provide up-to-date information and resources when available to aid in information distribution, event preparation and organizational response. We will continue to make all efforts to ensure that our members and athletes are informed, safe and ready to compete.
