Cal South is proud to announce the Return-to-Play Guidelines for all sanctioned activities throughout Southern California. We’re providing our members the guidelines to have a safe return to play once given the green light by the state and county authorities. As we begin to shift into different phases, we will assess the different guidelines for different counties and inform our membership of what the Return-to-Play looks like according to your county.

Cal South is committed to creating a safe playing environment. Implementing the Cal South Return-to-Play Guidelines will require a cooperative relationship between leagues/clubs, coaches, team officials and administrators, players (including parents/guardians), and referees. Cal South will support decisions to not participate among youth, parents, guardians and adult leaders, who are uncomfortable participating for any reason.

CORRESPONDENCE TO CALIFORNIA GOVERNOR GAVIN NEWSOM – POSTED OCTOBER 5, 2020

Dear Cal South Affiliates,

Cal South recently released our Prevention and Response Protocol as well as our Return-to-Play Phases and Responsibilities as adopted by our Board of Directors to facilitate the Return to Play (RTP) process for our affiliate members, athletes, administrators, parents and participants commensurate with the State of California and local agency guidelines stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Corresponding with existing and ongoing COVID-19 recovery requirements established by the State of California; the California Department of Public Health; and County and local agencies, effective June 12, 2020, Cal South is lifting its previously announced suspension, provided activities related to recovery are authorized by all governing agencies.

This action is taken to assist our affiliate members through the process of recovery while adhering to the requirements of the State of California, County, and local municipalities who are allowing activities to restart where authorized. Cal South sanctioned affiliates, using permitted fields (meaning you have secured approval from the municipality that owns the field and defines the terms of use) may conduct authorized and sanctioned activities including practices under the RTP. The RTP identifies the phases that are permitted as allowed by the respective municipality and government agencies.

Effective June 12, 2020, the Cal South RTP identifies our phased recovery trajectory to be utilized in conjunction with established guidelines and requirements of the Governor’s office and other agencies.

In addition to the requirements outlined in Cal South’s RTP Guidelines and Protocols, all affiliate members are required and expected to comply with local governing and health agency requirements for a return to activities.

Recognizing that recovery efforts within each of the ten (10) counties of Southern California in which Cal South has jurisdiction may occur at differing paces and levels, the Cal South Board of Directors and staff personnel are committed to working collaboratively with each affiliate member to assist you in the recovery effort moving forward. Additional announcements and correspondence will be forthcoming regarding specific District webinars and/or conference calls that may facilitate recovery efforts.

We are proud to acknowledge the outstanding work of our soccer community and commend our members for the care and attention in which you have managed and administered the initial impacts of the pandemic to date. As we begin the recovery effort together, we are reminded of our ongoing responsibility to administer these next phases of activities with continued diligence to ensure the safety and well-being of our athletes, administrators, and participants until we have achieved full recovery in subsequent weeks.

Estimados afiliados de Cal South,

Cal South lanzó recientemente nuestro Protocolo de Prevención y Respuesta, así como nuestras Fases y Responsabilidades de Regreso al Juego, según lo adoptado por nuestra Junta Directiva para facilitar el proceso de Regreso al Juego (RTP) para nuestros miembros afiliados, atletas, administradores, padres y participantes acorde con las pautas de las agencias locales y estatales de California derivadas de la pandemia COVID-19.

En correspondencia con los requisitos de recuperación COVID-19 existentes y en curso establecidos por el Estado de California; Departamento de Salud Pública de California; y las agencias locales y del condado, a partir del 12 de junio de 2020, Cal South levantará su suspensión anunciada previamente, siempre que las actividades relacionadas con la recuperación estén autorizadas por todas las agencias gubernamentales.

Esta acción se toma para ayudar a nuestros miembros afiliados a través del proceso de recuperación mientras se adhiere a los requisitos del estado de California, el condado y los municipios locales que permiten que las actividades se reinicien donde esté autorizado. Los afiliados sancionados por Cal South, utilizando campos permitidos (lo que significa que ha obtenido la aprobación del municipio que posee el campo y define los términos de uso) pueden realizar actividades autorizadas y sancionadas, incluidas las prácticas bajo el RTP. El RTP identifica las fases permitidas según lo permitido por las respectivas municipalidades y agencias gubernamentales.

A partir del 12 de junio de 2020, el Cal South RTP identifica nuestra trayectoria de recuperación por fases para ser utilizada en conjunto con las directrices y requisitos establecidos por la oficina del gobernador y otras agencias.

Además de los requisitos descritos en las Directrices y Protocolos RTP de Cal South, se requiere que todos los miembros afiliados cumplan con los requisitos de las agencias de salud y de gobierno locales para volver a las actividades.

Reconociendo que los esfuerzos de recuperación dentro de cada uno de los diez (10) condados del sur de California en los que Cal South tiene jurisdicción pueden ocurrir a diferentes pasos y niveles, la Junta Directiva de Cal South y el personal se comprometen a trabajar en colaboración con cada miembro afiliado para ayudar usted en el esfuerzo de recuperación. Se enviarán anuncios y correspondencia adicionales con respecto a seminarios web y / o conferencias telefónicas específicas por Distrito que pueden facilitar los esfuerzos de recuperación.

Nos enorgullece reconocer el trabajo sobresaliente de nuestra comunidad de fútbol y felicitar a nuestros miembros por el cuidado y la atención en la que han manejado y administrado los impactos iniciales de la pandemia hasta la fecha. A medida que comenzamos juntos el esfuerzo de recuperación, recordamos nuestra responsabilidad continua de administrar estas próximas fases de actividades con diligencia continua para garantizar la seguridad y el bienestar de nuestros atletas, administradores y participantes hasta que hayamos logrado la recuperación total en las proximas semanas.
