Information on the Fall 2021 Season

(Last updated on 9/14/2021)
The Chappaqua AYSO board is hard at work in order to make the 2021 season a reality. This won’t be soccer as usual, but we believe that working together with our parents we can provide an outlet for our kids to have some fun outdoor activity, and do it in a safe way.  

This page will be updated frequently as we learn more and our plans evolve.  Check back often.

What special precautions is Chappaqua AYSO taking?  
We will follow and comply with guidance from New York State, Westchester Countythe CDC, AYSO National and the Chappaqua Central School District.   We’ll need strict adherence by parent-volunteers and families. 

Masks

      • There is no mask mandate for 2021

Physical Distancing

      • Practice physical distancing when possible

Health Screening

      • Parents will do at-home health checks for themselves and their player prior to coming to the fields. The process will be similar to how the school does it (Google Forms).   Both parent/guardian and player must be symptom-free.
      • Players must bring a signed COVID waiver on their first day

Contact Tracing

      • Coaches will be required to keep and report daily attendance to their Division Coordinator
      • All participants are expected to comply with contact tracing efforts

Equipment

      • Players should bring their own ball and shouldn’t touch anyone else’s with their hands (It’s soccer!  Use your feet!).  
      • Goal keepers wear keeper gloves.

What will it look like on the field?  Will there be competitive games?

What role do the parents play?

  • Parents must complete an online Health Screening Form prior to each day’s soccer.   One form for each person stepping on the field.
  • All parents are expected to follow our guidelines and will help enforce off-field and sideline distancing. 
  • We can’t allow drop-offs.  If your child shows signs of illness or self-reports as not feeling well they will need to leave the field immediately.
  • We need coaches and coordinators.  AYSO is a volunteer organization.  Without our parent volunteers our kids can’t play.  Contact us more more information at info@chappaquaayso.org or ask any AYSO coach you know.

What if a child (or coach) on my team tests positive for corona virus?
We will follow the state and county protocols for contact tracing and comply with quarantine orders.
