COVID-19 Outdoor Policy
Given the current situation with COVID-19 and WYSA’s league requirements, PSU has enacted multiple safety protocols to create the safest possible environment for everyone. As such, we ask all parents, players, coaches, and Club administrators to follow the actions and processes detailed below to the best of their ability.
- Coaches, players, parents, and Club administrators shall:
- Advise Club administration of a positive COVID-19 diagnosis as soon as possible (See Communications)
- Maintain a distance of 6 ft. between themselves and anyone they do not share a household with wherever possible.
- Refrain from attending any Club activity in the following situations:
Freedom to Refrain from Participation
- Pewaukee Sussex United will fully support “non-participation” decisions by players, parents, coaches, and Club administrators who prefer to not participate in any Club activity, without prejudice, regardless of the reason. Further, reasons for not participating do not need to be disclosed.
- For individuals who feel uncomfortable participating in a significant number of Club activities, Pewaukee Sussex United will work with the individual to seek an amicable solution that supports both the individual’s preferences while also supporting the general requirements of a team environment.
- All formal communications about player safety, including communications regarding COVID-19, whether verbal or written, shall be coordinated between the parents or guardians of the player and PSU administration. “PSU Administration” means only:
- Formal communications include, but aren’t limited to:
- A player’s positive diagnosis of COVID-19.
- Positive COVID-19 diagnosis of one of the player’s family members, or another person the player has been in close proximity with in the past 10 days.
- Informal communications can and should be communicated between players and coaches. Examples of informal communications are:
- A player letting the coach know they are fatigued.
- A player informing the coach that another player is exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms.
- A coach identifies and corrects an unsafe situation during training.
- A player is uncomfortable with a game or training environment.
- A coach letting a parent know their son/daughter disclosed concerns about having symptoms associated with COVID-19.
- Should the Club become aware of a player or coach who has tested positive for COVID-19, PSU will, as soon as possible after being advised of the diagnosis, contact the parents of all players on the diagnosed player/coach’s team via e-mail.
