The Oregon Health Authority recently released updated Statewide guidance for Recreational Sports. You can find that guidance at the below link.
The current interpretation of this guidance is that OYSA can hold soccer leagues this fall, even in counties that are not yet in Phase 2 Recovery. Based on that guidance, OYSA is planning to hold leagues this Fall at the Sr. Academy, Academy, and Jr. Academy levels. The Draft Plan for the Sr. Academy and Academy level league can be found at the below link.

For Foothills, this means we are moving to our Return to Play, Phase 3. Details regarding our RTP, Phase 3 can can be found at the link below.
RTP Phase 3
RTP, Phase 3 will start on Monday, September 21, 2020.
We are asking all Foothills families to see if they are comfortable with entering this phase of Return to Play. If you are not comfortable or if you have questions, please reach out directly to your child's coach so that they are aware.
A couple (but not all) of the larger changes are:
1. Groups of up to 25 (coaches included) will practice together
2. Players AND Coaches are required to wear masks at all times
3. Scrimmaging will be allowed, but
A. The numbers (4v4 and 6v6) will be limited for a while.
B. The amount of time allowed for scrimmaging will be limited
We are excited at the prospects of playing soccer this fall. However, the safety of our Coaches and Players remains our top priority. Let's all stay vigilant and do our part so that our children can play soccer safely.
