 Ojai AYSO Region 147 COVID- 19 Guidelines

Updated October 28, 2021 

We look forward to a fun and safe Fall 2021 soccer season. Throughout the season, the Ojai AYSO Board will continue to monitor the guidelines from AYSO National, Ventura County Public Health, and the CDC in order to guide coaches, referees, parents, and players on safe play.  We will update these recommendations weekly throughout the season. The guidelines will be posted on the Website and at the Information booths. 

Please be aware and respectful of the following: 
1) A COVID-19 waiver form from AYSO has been signed for each player at registration.
2) We ask that only well children and adults participate.  We will ask families to monitor their children, and adults to monitor themselves, and stay home if they have symptoms of fever or cough or exposure to someone with Covid-19 or are ill with Covid-19.
3) We encourage contactless greetings- no shaking hands or high fives.
4) Communal snacks and drinks during halftime and after the game are discouraged.  We ask that all food and drink be provided by players’ own families- not to be shared with other families. 
5) Spectators will be allowed at practices and games.
6) Currently, Ventura County Public Health is not recommending or requiring masks for outdoor events at this time. Therefore coaches, referees, spectators, and players will not be required to wear a mask.  If an individual person chooses to wear a mask during soccer events, this will be respected.
