COVID-19- Phase 3 Update

Dear Southside Youth Soccer members,

Please read the below statement from the Louisiana Soccer Association;


As a result of the Governor’s placement of Louisiana into Phase 3, it is the opinion of the LSA Executive Committee that, assuming we all adhere to mitigation guidelines and common sense, we can return to play safely. While this does not mean the game will immediately return to pre-COVID-19 conditions, it does mean we can get our kids back on the field.

Return to Play
First and foremost, our return to play is still subject to the terms of all of the Governor’s official Proclamations. For instance, Louisiana is still under a mask mandate and the Governor has required outdoor sporting events operate at 25% capacity for spectators. Our return to play is dependent upon the authority of local fire marshals, health departments, parks and recreation departments and other governmental entities. The issue of 25% capacity should be addressed with local authorities before scheduling games or events. Every Club and Team must confirm with their local officials that their return to play shall be permitted on a local level so as to avoid instances of practices or games getting shut down or liability/medical insurance being invalidated.

We must all recognize that the risk of transmission of COVID-19 is still very much a reality. We must all be committed to taking the mitigation measures with which we have all become so familiar or we
increase the health risks. Many of these measures are set out in our original Phasing, Protocol and Responsibilities published in April.
