COVID-19 UPDATE: August 3rd 2020 10:00am pst
Next update expected: August 10th
We are still awaiting word from the City of Tualatin Parks Department and the Tualatin Tigard School District on the opening of fields to youth sports. They, in turn, are awaiting word from the Governor on the guidelines for the Phase gates. The Tualatin Soccer Club is one of many clubs in the State and we are all working on processes and procedures to keep our kids safe as we get closer to being allowed back on the fields. The kids come first in every decision we make. There will undoubtedly be changes to how we administer Soccer in the state but the game is still the same game. We will work to minimize any impacts to the players and families as we move into our "Return to Play".
If you are looking for updates on the "Re-opening Phases", follow the Washington County Phases on this website OHA COVID-19. All but one of the Tualatin fields resides in Washington County so the City and TTSD will use WashCo as the phase determiner. We are currently in Phase 2. Soccer is an approved Phase 2 sport for youth Sports clubs.
TSC 2020 Fall Season Status
Fields: Currently in Phase 1 and Awaiting Phase 2 (WashCo) no "Youth Sports" organizations allowed with exceptions for summer camps or day camp format practice sessions.
Changes: Awaiting advise from Governor on Phase 2 guidelines and Youth Sports
Possible Restrictions and Rules Modifications for COVID-19: These are the only ones we know of but are subject to change as needs develop
- Masks will likely be worn on the sidelines only
- No throw-ins, we will likely modify to kick-ins
- No headers due to risk of spreading the disease by head to head contact or transfer from the ball
- No Slide Tackling
- Parents will need to health check before any participation
Thank you for your continued patience!
We still hope our teams can begin practicing in August 2020 - after all teams have been assigned an eligible coach.
Don't forget, if you'd like to join the team and help us administer Youth Soccer in Tualatin, join us on the board of directors! We are all soccer parents from the community and would love to have new folks join our team. You can contact any of our board members listed on the page to come to a monthly meeting and see if you'd like to help out.
