September 1st, 2020:
The COVID-19 Pandemic has caused monumental disruption in the lives of nearly everyone in the world; it has been no different for the youth soccer players of our Vancouver Island communities.
Merriman Soccer believes that our Academy members should be given an opportunity to return to the sport that they love, and that they should be able to do it safely and responsibly.
To that end, Merriman Soccer has developed a “Return to Play Plan” that will ensure a safe environment, a safe set of operational practices, and a detailed mitigation plan should an emergency situation arise.
Additionally, we have developed a Player Checklist that must be reviewed and followed by each Academy participant; and an Illness Policy that should be read by each parent.
