Covid-19 Related Response Action Plan

BCSA’s first and most important priority is the safety and health of our athletes and their families.  As such, we will continue to closely monitor the situation and follow all guidelines and directives from federal, state, and local authorities as well as those from our various governing bodies such as US Club Soccer, NJ Youth Soccer, and US Youth Soccer.  Our duty to act in a responsible way is one that we take very seriously as we seek to ensure the safety of those we serve.

Our response to the crisis will continue to evolve as needed.  We will update our website and social media with information regarding how this will impact our schedules and programs. 

Below is our current plan as of Friday, March 13th.

  • Effective as of Thursday 3/12 ALL BCSA ACTIVITY including all training at all locations is suspended until at least Monday 3/16.This will allow us to monitor the responses of various leagues and governing bodies in order to help us implement the best plan going forward and extend the suspension if necessary.
  • Development Programs including Rising Stars (Tots/Minis), Juniors, and Pre-Academy will have adjusted start and end dates.The original dates of 3/20 to 5/17 are now adjusted to 4/17 to 6/7.
  • Development League start and end dates have been adjusted from the original start/end dates of 3/22 to 5/17.The new start/end dates are now 4/19 to 5/17.
  • The Tryout-Prep program is currently suspended for Saturday 3/14.A decision will be made concerning the remaining two sessions scheduled for 3/21 and 3/28.
  • Field Player Training currently scheduled to begin 3/30 will start as planned.
  • Speed, Quickness and Agility (SAQ) training scheduled to begin 4/4 will start as planned.
  • Competitive Teams, the various leagues our teams play in have issued their own response plans.To view the evolving details of those leagues’ plans please consult their individual websites:www.SJSL.org, www.SJGSL.org, www.edpsoccer.com.The impact of those league’s responses will be communicated to our players and families via their individual team coaches.

In addition to the above, we cannot stress enough the importance of following the common sense guidelines of the CDC and the healthcare community which is centered on the importance of handwashing, using household cleaners to disinfect commonly touched surfaces and items, and staying home if you feel sick.  For more information please visit these websites:  www.CDC.gov, www.WHO.int.

Above all, we hope that everyone in our soccer community remains healthy and safe.  We know that this is a difficult time, and we want nothing more than to get back on the field as soon as it is safe and responsible to do so.  Thank you for your help and cooperation as we continue to work for the best solution to this very serious situation.

 

Thank you,
